    I have an only child that is 10. Will she be able to feel included when in the kids clubs? She is worried since she won't have a sibling to buddy around with. Thanks.

    I can tell you from experience, Teri, that a child going in to one of the youth programs without any siblings to keep company with shouldn't have any trouble feeling included.  My kids always board with siblings, but they go into the clubs on their own, based in part on their individual interests.  While some of the kids will be cruising with siblings, cousins, or family friends, many of the kids on board will enter the youth programming solo.  That's not to say, though, that they'll stay that way for long!  My children have always warmed right up to the other kids and I can honestly tell you that they've come away from each of our cruises with lasting friendships.  In fact, they've stayed connected with cruise friends and still correspond with many of them.  Most recently my middle daughter made plans to meet up with a friend from our last cruise months after we got home!  Rest assured that your daughter won't be the only child going solo; she shouldn't have any trouble making friends once you board.  Have a great trip!
