    We are traveling with 4 families...3 boys are 18 and 2 boys are 17 years old. What is your recommendation for areas where they can all hang out; I know there are age restrictions on the teen clubs and other areas?

    Ahoy, Blair!

    A Disney Cruise is always more fun when traveling with others! I believe from the date you have listed, you are setting sail on a Caribbean voyage on the spectacular Disney Fantasy this weekend. 

    I'm glad you asked this question because I know it can be tricky when teens turn 18, so I do have a few recommendations for the boys. If they like sports, Goofy's Sports Deck on Deck 13 offers a basketball court, foosball, ping-pong and mini golf while Deck 4 offers shuffleboard. The Arr-cade is another spot they may want to hit on Deck 11. If they want to catch a first-run movie, some of the latest Disney movies are shown in the Buena Vista Theatre. Vibe, the teen club, does offer Open House hours each day so they could enjoy this space together during the designated time (check the cruise newsletter for details each day). O'Gills Pub is a cool spot to hang during the day as it is opened to adults only after 9:00 p.m. There are plenty of spots on the pool deck both in the sun and in the shade. When the cruise stops in Castaway Cay, I suggest they head over to In Da Shade Game Pavilion to play pool, basketball, foosball or ping-pong. When they want to head to the beach, there are plenty of spots to enjoy the sand, sun and water! 

    I hope my suggestions help, Blair! Another spot I think you'll find the boys is near the food! They will love all the dining options offered on the pool deck and at Cabanas! 

    Have a magical time and bon voyage!
