    Thinking of Disney Cruise. DD14,DS10 wondering if they will be entertained enough.Not sure if they will go to teen club alone for example. Would they be able to do some things together? Any insight on this. How did your kids like the cruises at these ages

    My son just turned 9 and he still loves the Disney cruise.

    Your 10 year old son would be in the Oceaneer Lab while your 14 year old daughter would be assigned to the teen club, The Stack.

    There will be many unstructured activities that they can do together around the ship. Arcade, sports deck, movie theater, swimming and more.

    Teens help the Activities Counselors make up the schedule for the week. Activities to choose from include dance parties, pool parties, scavenger hunts, Gender Wars and more. On Castaway Cay, teens have their own beach with activities such as football, volleyball and “Float Your Boat”. In “Float Your Boat”, teens make their own rafts!

    In the Oceaneer Lab, your son will have his own activities. He can participate in such activities as making Flubber, Wacky Relays on the Sports Deck, Pirates Life for Me in Studio Sea, Glow Jam on the Sports Deck and Marshmallow Olympics in the Oceaneer Lab.

    I spoke with many teens on my last voyage and they all indicated to me that they enjoyed the structured and unstructured activities. I think your kids will enjoy having some time with their peers and then meeting up for a movie or a swim!
