Holland America for Kids???

Is Holland America mainly for the older crowd?
Many kids on board?
How's the kids program?
(My kids are 10 & 12)

Yes, it really is; 40 and up.
Yes, they have childrens' programs but your kids might not have as many kids their own age onboard for it to be as fun for them as other cruise lines.
Disney and Carnival are noted for their excellent kid's activity programs.

I agree with HAL, Holland America among the mid level cruiselines is one of the worst for kids, there aren't many.

Disney is obviously tops. Princess pioneered the concept and is still near the top in entertaining youngsters.

Holland America is basically for older cruisers; Your kids would be (probably)
happier on Carnival,RCCL or Disney.

Thanks for the reply. We were only thinking of HA because of the New England/Canada summer cruise itinerary.
Now I'm thinking the kids may be bored.
Thanks for the input.

If youre going to HI, Norwegian has a brand new ship which I heard has a remarkable kids space and programs starting at age 2! We just booked based on what ive read from Norwegian, and by asking those who have taken that cruise!

Hi Linda,

There is only one HAL ship that I would advise cruising with children and that is the Maasdam that sails the Caribbean. They have a terrific children's program, large children areas, teen disco with professional lighting and fog. Also video games and juice bar. Averaging 150 to 200 children per cruise.

The problem is, we wanted this itinerary on the Rotterdam. (New England/Canada in the summer).
