Went on escape two years ago with 11 year old and 13. we all had a super time. the teenager had a whale of a time and met up with a posse of teenagers on first day, which was great. there was lots for him to do on ship, from pizza and film nights to general hanging aroiund. there was tabletennis, play machines internet etc. the younger one hung about with us but loved the cabaret 5type shows. she was too old for kidz club but not mature enough to hang about with the teenagers- but best holiday we had for amusment of whinging teenagers- we only saw him at meals and when we were at port. my advice is to encourage the boys to move in quick and join up with other teenagers from day .

You will really enjoy Island Escape, I would have chosen this line to do my cruise inJune but, their itinery is the same as last year, we felt we wanted different places to visit this year. Your sons will have a ball. plenty to keep them going and you will not have to worry about them. Wish I was going on Island Escape now and could have met up with you. Stop feeling nervous and enjoy. I know i will read a good review from you when you get back.

My 14 year old son was a little bored on his own but with 2 of them and the teen club they should have a lot of fun. My son also enjoyed watching the movie in the cabin with a plate full of snacks. Even if you don't do the ships trips you can still get of the ship and go and by a coke and ice-cream in a different port everyday. There should be no bad reviews just relax and go with the flow.

Well it is finally time for my holiday. I am off to Poole in Dorset tomorrow to stop at Rockley Park for 11 days. I am really looking forward to a break and spending some time with my husband. We have had a busy year so far and as I am heavily pregnant with our first baby due in August we haven’t been away at all yet this year. It has been so hot the last few days with the heatwave we had and now the weather is turning and the forecast isn’t great for our time away. I wouldn&...

All in all we had a great cruise and I would without question sail with Royal Caribbean again perhaps next time we’d like to try one of the newer bigger ships. This cruise was our first as...
