If life gets a little too crazy with all of you and one shower, remember that some of the adults can opt to shower in the spa locker room.
Yes, they actually added her to their room a couple of hours ago for a total cost of $70! All I had to do was fax a copy of her driver's license to verify she'll still be 17 at the time of sailing for the discount to apply. I just wanted to make sure we weren't going to 'get in trouble' or anything for allowing her to actually stay in our room.

As a Family of 5, we have done this many times. I wouldn't worry about it. One Child is on "the books" in one room, however, the entire time they were staying in our room. No worries

Adding her to the friends' room costs less than $100 since she qualifies for the Kids Sale Free promo.
No brainer here! Sign her up with the other family, squish everyone into your room. My kids also shared a twin bed all the time when they were smaller. Your host will bring extra pillows and blankets if you request.

The adults can also shower at the spa if you need to, any time it is open.

Your stateroom host will give you an extra life jacket for her. She will need to go to the correct muster station, but with the jacket in your room you can make sure she has it before going to the station.

We have done this....booked 2 then added the third child to the second room when we got there. They will give you addional keys. The only thing you need to clear up on day one is to let the stateroom host know whether he is taking care of a room of 5 or 4 and tip accordingly. They do depend on their tips.
In our case, the same stateroom host was looking after both rooms, so he was tipped for 5, either way.

Not trying to be negative but just giving all aspects. The only glitch I can see would be if your friends had to cancel for some reason. That would leave your teenager with no space on the ship and you scrambling. I wouldn't enter into this situation without trip insurance.
