Best Alaskan Cruise for Teens

We have cruised four times. Three with Carnival and once with RC. Our teens have only cruised with Carnival and have always loved it. Carnival only departs from Seattle which doesn't seem to have the best Itinerary. We are looking to cruise in/out of Vancouver in one or both directions. Between Holland, Princess or RC any tips on which cruise line is better suited for teens?

I think you should choose a cruise, based upon both the itinerary and the amount of time you will be in each port.......

There are enough activities and excursions for everyone's interests, so make sure you have enough time and are in the right port to do the ones your family wants to do/see.........

Thanks for your help! We understand the importance of the ports and excursions. We are looking for the best cruise line ship experience for teens. Our kids are used to regular almost non-stop activities for kids aboard Carnival. We have seen great itineraries for Princess, Holland America and RC. If we could have help with which ship caters more to kids/teens we could easily pick the best itinerary within that particular cruise line. While at sea, our teens focus is on the ship's activities. Thanks!

You won't see many teens on the HAL ships from my experience. This might be good as there isn't a lot of competition for the activities for them. However, you might want to look elsewhere if you want them to find other companions on ship.
