They could take their laptops with them there is wi-fi throughout the ship, but there is a price to pay, but maybe you don't want to encourage this. There is usually a bit of activity around the pool and they might get involved in that and there is late night music as well so not all bad, but given their ages alochol is out. There will be arrange of talks which might interest them, I some how doubt that when we were on the QE2 Jenny bond spoke on is Prince Charles fit to be King, possibly not their cup of tea.

Out of interest re; your cruise on the QE2 with Jenny Bond on board. Was this the 18 night cruise thru the Med in October/November 2006?

There is a good out door pool,we went in July and it was very cold most of the cruise.but there is a great indoor pool which everyone loved.They also had table tennis tourements.you could also have games on the deck......weather permitting.Iam sure there will be more teenagers on the cruise who they will make friends with and make there own fun.A fantastic ship,you will enjoy.

I did that trip last august and there were very few teenagers on board. They could play I spy the geriatric or walk the plank - only kidding. The pools are great & we had decent weather on the odd day. The jog round the deck takes up the odd hour & there is also a decent cinema. The planetarium may not seem like a teenagers cup of tea but they will enjoy that cos its a bit star trekky. I'm afraid the rest of the time its just down to food drink & more food to pass the time.
