Depending what cruiseline you pick, most of the cruises have kids' program, but they're generally too old to a 11-year-old teen...

I am only famaliar with carnival and I can tell you that if you go on
one of the larger ships your child will not be bored. If you go during
the school season there will not be many other children there so it
may seem boring for him. but when school is out there can be as many
as 800 children on a ship and they have things like camp carnival,
water slides, arcades, libraries

It is really cruise line and time frame dependent but, in general, there
is something for all ages to do on most of the bigger lines. Of course,
Disney has the most for kids of all ages. But I have also seen teen
"clubs" on Carnival, Norwegian, Princess, Holland America and Royal
Caribbean (the only ones I have gone on so far).

On top of that, there are usually activities planned that are for
families so you can have fun with your teen as your own group.

Not to be insulting ... some kids get bored at an amusement park
because, well, that's just the way they are. So if your kid is fun
loving and outgoing, there should be NO reason for him/her to get bored.
If you have an Emo kid, a cruise ship won't fix him/her.

Just plan on having fun and hope that your teen has fun too.

Since when did 11 year olds become teens?

Agree, but some cruiseline has "kids cruise free", pretty good pricing.

I knew kids under 13 is free on Costa Ship. I went onboard last year with 2 kids, sharing same cabin for a short-getaway. It's not bad.
