    I understand Port Adventures get booked quickly, but I'm not sure if I should purchase the Teen Only adventure for my daughter. She's shy, the trip is a total surprise and I'm not so sure she will want to go alone. Recommend I wait and purchase it onboard?

    That really is a tough one, Jamal...

    The Wild Side Teen Adventure is a lot of fun for the teens who want to adventure with other teens on their voyage. But if you think your daughter might not fully enjoy it (since she might be very shy), then I would also be hesitant to book it for her, if I were in your shoes. There might be a chance that it might sell out of course... but it really does depend on how strongly you think she might react to going on an adventure on her own. 

    You could always chance it and wait to book once you are onboard - and maybe have her decide right there if she wants to do it. You just need to go to the Guest Services Desk on embarkation day to register her. I know that practicality does kick in, and you don't want to waste those dollars on something that she might not feel like doing anyway. But - you would be the best judge.

    If you do book her on it, it will be a 4-hour fun adventure on her own. If you don't book her on it, you'll have your teen princess spending quality time with family on Castaway Cay. I don't think you'll be at a loss either way :-). You can always book a family adventure and adventure together as a family.  My whole family enjoyed the activities included in the Extreme Getaway Package, but I should warn you... it will feel like 1 day isn't enough on Castaway Cay.

    Your surprise magical voyage will be an epic vacation - no doubt about it, Jamal.
