Not sure the Edge will be right for him but I do worry about the older kids in the Vibe!
I'm with you! It's a hard decision because my DD will just be shy of 14 at the time of the cruise and she has plenty of 14 year old friends. She will have completed 8th going into High School. I too worry about her "hanging" in the same area as 17-18 year olds. I think a lot she will hear will be inappropriate. Frankly, on our last cruise she didn't like the Edge. She felt too old then. 13 is a tricky age. She want to ACT older but she really isn't.

Plus every port day we will be off the ship almost the entire time. I just know we will do Palo brunch & dinner and at least one tasting class. I would hate for him to be stuck in the Edge because he isn't officially 14 yet.
We were in this same situation last July on the Fantasy. Since our twins (DS and DD) were not 14 at the start of the cruise, they were allowed to go to the Vibe only with a permission form signed by a parent or guardian. Once in one or the other, they could not switch back and forth. They chose to stay in the Edge and had a great time.

When we go in May, my oldest DS will be 11. From what I'm reading, he will have to choose to either be in the Edge or Lab, but not both?

That is what you should expect. There is a possibility they will allow him to utilize both spaces throughout the cruise, but that seems to be a decision made onboard and likely depends on the number of kids of the given age groups on that particular cruise. If he might be interested in the EDGE, I suggest he attend the first night which is a planning session for the rest of the cruise, then make his decision after the first night. Unless he knows for certain that he'd prefer the Club/Lab.

Enjoy your cruise!
