i have a few questions about the rock wall. im going to be on the Jewel of the Seas this coming december. i've climbed a rock wall once but it wasn't 20stories over the sea! when you climb, does each person have thier own blayer? is it scary?? does the adventure club have a time where they go up to the rock wall with only the kids?? if someone can help, that would be great!

Each person gets special climbing shoes, a hard hat, and a harness. There is a staff member controlling the ropes and they're tied down to the ship itself. I never saw the Adventure Club up there with kids as children under 18 must have a parent present and the parent must sign the waiver for them every day you try to climb. Kids it seemed had a much easier time climbing than the adults (myself included). It was only scary the first time I tried because I wasn't used to it but after that it wasn't bad. The staff is very good and will help you out if you don't know where to put your foot/hand next.
A couple of weeks ago my 8 year old grandson, who celebrated his birthday on the ship went all the way to the top(with a little help). Should be no problem for a 12 year old. Have at it and have a ball.
