Planning a vacation with teens can be tricky. If there isn't enough to entertain them 24/7, they will claim boredom and your trip "the worst vacation ever." Cruise lines are offering a way for parents to seem cool again, offering teen-centric fun, as well as activities the entire family can enjoy together. Here are eight tried-and-tested cruises that are purely and simply, start to finish, teen-centered.
It’s almost a given that the largest cruise ship afloat would be the one to exceed even the wildest teenage expectations. This is the boat with a 10 story dry-slide called Ultimate Abyss: The tallest at sea. (It's dry because that tested infinitely more terrifying than wet!) White-knuckle thrills aside, there’s also a full size basketball court, round-top-deck-running track, an ice rink and a rock climbing wall on this top teen cruise option.
