The Best Cruises if You Are Traveling With Teens!

Yep, planning a trip with your kids can be hard

Planning a whole family vacation is hard, but planning it with a group of teenagers? Yeah, that is extra hard. We could give you options like the newest Icon of the Seas from Royal Caribbean that has seven pools, or smaller ships from different companies that offer quick trips as well.

What ships does Famvia recommend to you?

Before even looking at ships, we need to start with choosing one company. Each one has its target audience! For example, Norwegian is an expert in luxury for adults and fancy dinners, and Disney is the best for kids. What about teens, though? The award goes to Royal Caribbean, thanks to several perks they offer. Royal is one of the most modern cruise companies out there and their ships feature a lot of entertainment on board that are perfect not only for kids but for teenagers as well.

Now that you know this, we are going to recommend you our top three cruise ships if you plan to travel with a teenager!

Icon of the Seas

This one is the newest member of Royal Caribbean cruises and is even larger than the Six Oasis Classis ships. Teens on board will have plenty of attractions to enjoy, including the record-breaking category six water park, which is the biggest waterpark ever built on a cruise.

If the water park is not something for you, the AquaDome shows might be, or even the mini golf that they offer to all passengers. Please don’t think this massive cruise is only for teenagers, because it comes with some amazing treats for the parents as well, like the walk-up champagne bar or the adults-only private oasis with private pools!

Prices for a cruise during summer 2024 usually range from $2900 to $3400 if you want a balcony.

Utopia of the Seas

This one will launch in July 2024, but it’s already a fantastic option, especially if you want to be one of the first on board. It will launch with 3 and 4-night cruises from Canaveral to the Bahamas.

You can expect Royal Caribbean staples like the Central Park, the Boardwalk, the Lime, and the Coconut Bar. This ship comes with FIVE POOLS and three water slides, eight hot tubes, and 21 dining venues. There's a lot for everyone, teenagers and adults included.

Odyssey of the Seas

The last of our best options and the last to be part of the Quantum Ultra Class ship. It set sail in 2021, so it’s not an old design at all. It’s full of activities during the summer itineraries to Europe, with options to visit the Greek Isles and Santorini, which might be fun even for teenagers.

You will find an indoor Sea Plex where you can ride bumper cars, play glow-in-the-dark laser tag, or even play with VR headsets. I mean, teenagers and gaming is a match made in heaven.

No matter which Cruise you choose, the three of them will offer the most thrilling experiences with the Zipline, the surf simulator, and the ice skating rink. Royal Caribbean is the best option for families with teenagers. Want to know even more about trips and different ships? Send us a message, and let us plan your entire vacation, just for you.
