  1. I was also on this sailing and I couldn't agree more about the obnoxious, disrespectful teens, they were wildly out of control!! We are a family of 4, myself, husband and 2 teen boys (14 & 17). My boys couldn't believe the behavior of the other kids. We were on deck 11, just under Serenity. On the last night a large group of teens (25-30 of them) decided to stay up all night running wild on Serenity, and through the hallways of Deck 11. I'm not one to get offended, or even annoyed by much, but they were wildly out of control. My family had a great time on this cruise. Chris the c
  2. I just returned from the Sunrise on Wednesday (9/4). We had a very similar experience with the other passengers that you did; LOTS of very obnoxious, disrespectful, rude teens (as well as many of the adults). We are a family of 4, myself, husband and two teen boys (14 & 17) and even my boys were amazed by the behavior of the other kids. Our cabin was on deck 11 (under the serenity deck where you would think it would be somewhat quite), on the last night there was a large group of teens (25-30) who were up there all night running wild, screaming and yelling (very vulgar language) also runni
  3. Thank you for the update. I'm also on this sailing, hoping for the best.
  4. These are from 4 years ago sailing out of and back into NYC.
  5. I LOVED your review!! We sail in exactly a week, I can't wait to see your son perform (I feel like I know him from you review). Thank you for sharing your cruise experience with us. on a side note: I look at things this way: life is what you make it, if you are looking for something to complain about you will without a doubt find it. No matter what, I am on vacation; I have nowhere to be in a hurry, I'm an adult and my kids are teens, we can wait patiently in a line for our food...how bad can it possibly be?
  6. I grew up in the 70' & 80's too, and I LOVE it as well. I just meant I was a nerd for being so excited over something so trivial as a theme party. I didn't mean to be offensive, I apologize.
  7. This was super helpful!!! Thank you so much!!
  8. Thank you SO much!!! Now I'm super excited for the 80's party (i'm such a nerd ) as is my 17 year old son (he's a super nerd lol). Thank you so much!
  9. Thank you so much!!! This looks like a fun place, I think we could actually enjoy together. Thank you!! I think I'm going to leave it at home. My kids use it because it's easier than flossing with braces, but I see it being more of a problem and a mess I'll have to clean. they will have to suck it up and floss the old fashioned way. Thank you so much!!! Since we are on an 8 day cruise I'm hoping we get the 80's party. I'm going to search the Sunrise boards. You have all be very helpful, thank you!!!!!
  10. Thank you so much!!! As for the app, we really only need to be able to tell our boys where to meet up with us, so the delay isn't a big deal. They are pretty responsible for teenage boys.
  11. We will be sailing on the Sunrise in 2 week. While this isn't our first cruise it seems a lot has changed since we last cruised (4 years ago) so I'm full of somewhat silly questions. 1. We plan on using the Hub app (which wasn't available on our last cruise) to keep in touch with our kids. Does it drain the phone batter quickly? If so, are we allowed to bring external battery chargers on the ship? 2. Can we bring a water-pick (I didn't see this on the list of prohibited items) 3. Self service laundry - is this cashless now or will I need quarters? also if anyone has saile
  12. We are a family of 4, when we travel I manage to get by with 2 suitcases, a duffel bag,and my camera bag which doubles as my purse. I don't even like carrying a purse, so carrying the bags on just doesn't appeal to me. although now that my boys are older they could also be my personal baggage handler.
  13. I thought I would share these with you. My husband caught you sailing back into NY on his way into work this morning. Welcome back, I hope you had an amazing cruise, and thank you for sharing with us.
  14. Thank you all once again, I appreciate the tips! I did originally post this on a Carnival thread and it was moved here. I didn't forget about our meds, or phone chargers, they will be in my camera bad (which will also be used as my purse). I'm thinking a backpack will be enough for our swimsuits. What I didn't take into consideration was leaving and how I would carry our clothes from the last night off the ship. I'll probably just stick them in our beach bag for the trip home. Thank you all again!!! :)
