Westerdam Family

While some cruise lines beef up kids' programs to attract business, Holland America's program for youngsters is related to demand and season (school holiday or not). Club HAL is an area devoted to the youngest passengers, with separate supervised sections for the 3-7 and 8-12 sets, and is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on port days, lunch included. The Loft is a teen (ages 13-17) dance, video and movie area.

Group after-hours activities take place from 10 p.m. to midnight for kids 3 and older. The fee is $5 per child per hour. Individual baby-sitting is available on sea days (fee) for kids 5 and younger. The service is provided by staff on a volunteer basis and might not always be available. Check with the front desk.
