    My granddaughter is going on the trip with us. She turns 18 just a 2 weeks before we sail. Can she still participate in the teens club? Or can she do both the teen club and adult activities?

    Hello there, Anetta!

    I traveled with my grandparents on my first Disney Cruise years ago as a teen, and I still cherish all the moments we had laughing and dining together on that trip. I hope your vacation is as special as my memories. 

    Anetta, the teens-only lounge is only for Guests ages 14 to 17; however, there are a number of 18 and older activities available to you and your granddaughter. If your granddaughter is interested in a lounge atmosphere, she’ll find lots of other people around her age in the nightclubs or lounges. For example, we recently danced around with giant headphones in a silent disco on our most recent Disney Cruise vacation. This activity definitely had a younger crowd, and it was a blast! You'll find that there are a range of adult activities that your granddaughter may find more interesting than others. 

    In addition, your granddaughter can take a day for some self-care by visiting one of the state-of-the-art fitness centers or taking advantage of the spa and salon services. Personally, when I was your granddaughter's age, I was so happy to relax by the Quiet Cove Pool on the ship. This is an adults-only pool area with a fun and relaxed vibe for all adults. 

    Make sure that your granddaughter reviews the activities listed in the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app when you board the ship so she can see what activities interest her. She can add her favorite activities to her itinerary so that she gets alerts before the events are about to happen. There truly is something for everyone aboard the Disney Cruise Line ships. Feel free to reach out if you are looking for any other recommendations. 

    May the magic be with you!
