Noordam Family
Holland America is aiming to attract families, and Noordam appears to be up to the task. Its teen club and children's club are active and busy, and there seems to be plenty to occupy the youngsters. Watching kids play cards with their grandparents or do puzzles in the Explorer's Cafe was heartwarming. When the weather isn't terrific, there are always those DVD rentals.

The Loft, with its Jetson's-like appearance, silvery walls and posts and '60s-style bucket chairs, provides teens with a perfect parent-free zone. Kids between the ages of 13 and 17 are welcome; over and under those ages are not.

Club Hal is primary-color bright, and is permanently staffed by childcare professionals. Potty-trained children between the ages of 3 and 12 are nicely accommodated with age-appropriate activities.
