fishinglady Posted August 26, 2006 #1 Share Posted August 26, 2006 I'm planning a cruise with my ex sister-in-law and her 14 year old daughter this January (an 8 day cruise on RCI Jewel's). When I mentioned to the daughter that at least one night will be a dress-up night, you'd have thought I had asked her to walk on glass! She said that was stupid and she only wanted to wear jeans. Before I invited them on the cruise, I hadn't spent much time with the teen, but recently got the chance to. She seems very hard to please, easily finding fault, with what I guess are fairly typical teen mood swings (my kids are grown, so it's been awhile since I've been around this age!). I've even told her she can bring a friend, if the parents will pay for it. She initially was very excited about the cruise, and I hope she'll love it once she gets there, but I'm a little concerned that it might not go well. Anyone have experience with this kinds of situation? Do you think the fun of the cruise will take over once she's on board? I love cruises - have gone on 4 of them and loved every one, but I'd be really upset if someone constantly complained the whole time!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
