Eurodam Family
Club HAL is Holland America's fleetwide program for kids, and its facilities and programs are divided into three categories: 3 to 7, 8 to 12 and 13 to 17. All groups are clustered in the same space on Deck 10 and offer age-appropriate settings. (The 3 to 7 room, for instance, really evokes a kindergarten-type playroom, while the Loft, for teens, is all slouchy couches and tables for hanging out.) A for-fee video arcade is also included in the mix.

Other onboard activities are free.

The program is pretty quiet during port days, though activities pick up after dinnertime. After 10 p.m., fees apply for the 3 to 7 and 8 to 12 age groups. For teens, after-dinner games on the schedule include air hockey and dodgeball, though I did see a big pack of kids roaming the halls rather aimlessly.

All in all, the facilities seemed capable of handling the 275 kids (a good chunk of whom were teens) in an efficient manner, though Eurodam doesn't possess some of the state-of-the-art recreational facilities and enrichment programs offered by other big-ship lines.
