    You stated that you were taking the same cruise as my family. May I ask how old your children are? I am nervous that my oldest will be bored. She is 14, but my youngest will have a blast and she is 3.

    Welcome back, Angelique!

    My four children have been various ages when we've cruised with Disney --  from toddlers up through teens -- and they've never, ever, ever been bored!  I'm amazed that Disney can tailor each sailing for each member of the family no matter how old or how young.

    This summer, my oldest son (16) found adventure in the ports of Alaska as he fearlessly plunged down ziplines or enjoyed the freedom of creating his own agenda while on board during days at sea. Sometimes, he and his 14-year-old sister would check out the teen club, Vibe, together or they would catch a movie at the Buena Vista Theater. Armed with a wave phone, my teen daughter sometimes would take one of our younger children to the Oceaneer's Club or Lab for an activity or game that they read about in the Personal Navigator -- or she would go alone to Vibe or Edge to meet up with friends she met on board. (Make sure your teen participates in the teen clubs on the first day when everyone gets to know each other...that makes a huge difference!)

    For the Mexican Riviera, my daughter is already planning the Port Adventures for the family based on her preferences.  She's hoping to learn to surf and to swim with the dolphins. Let me know if I helped, and if you have other questions, I'm just a click away! Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation.

    Bon voyage!
