    We booked a cruise before they changed the age requirements for the oceaneers club. My son will be 12 at the time of sailing,we really want him to be able to still go to the oceaneers club. Will they have any leniency with us?

    Hello Jenny! Thank you for visiting planDisney with your question. 

    Disney Cruise Line is known for its enchanting youth spaces, providing a magical experience for kids of all ages. Everyone can explore Disney’s Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab during Open House hours. While secured programming is reserved for kids aged 3-10, the tween-exclusive club, Edge, offers a fantastic opportunity for your son to connect with cruisers his own age.

    My son joined Edge for the first time during our most recent cruise. I was a little nervous that he wouldn’t like it, but he loved playing video games and hanging out with other tweens. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed. The counselors strike the perfect balance of being "cool" while maintaining control.

    I recommend having your son drop by Edge on the first night. Icebreakers help the tweens bond, and as a group, they help plan the activities for the rest of the cruise. There are set activities similar to Oceaneer Club that can be found on the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app once you connect to the ship’s Wi-Fi. The app will also list the Open House hours for all the youth clubs. 

    Thank you for reaching out, Jenny! I hope your family has a truly magical time on your Disney Cruise Line adventure. If you have any more questions, feel free to stop by again. We're always happy to help!

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
