    At cruise time I will have two sons, an 11 who will be 12 in 2 month and a 15 year old that has his birthday the day before we get on the cruise. Will the 11 year old be able to do Oceaneer and Edge and will they let the newly turned 15 to Vibe and Edge?

    Ahoy Tracy –

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and we are so glad to see you here with us.  In just a short time, your pirate crew will enjoy sailing the seas with Disney Cruise Line where you can have an adventurous yet relaxing vacation experience. Your young sailors will have a blast at the Youth Clubs onboard that were made especially for them. Your 11-year-old (soon to be 12) has access to both the Oceaneer Club and Edge. I think 11 is one of the best ages to be on the ship because our little sea pups can still enjoy imaginative play in Oceaneer and visit the tween haven found in Edge.  My pirate fairy is 11 and she did not want to give up her chance to visit the Oceaneer Club; however, she spent an equal amount of time in Edge where she made lasting friendships, enjoyed scavenger hunts with other tween cruisers and played memorable games. Edge is for tweens aged 11-14. Your soon to be 15-year-old pirate is eligible for Vibe, the teen club for cruisers aged 14-17. He will find that Vibe is a hip and happening place to hang out with others his age.  There are usually strict age requirements that are followed for the different Youth Clubs. Since he would have just turned 15, technically he would be too old to visit Edge, but I am sure if the Youth Counselors are made aware of his recent birthday that he might be able to hang with his younger brother in Edge, so I would check with them once you board the ship. Tracy, we are so happy that you came by with your question, and happy cruising to you!
