Sherrie, you will love the Amsterdam. We sailed on her last year ten days to Northern Europe. Don't know the pool you mention but the Amsterdam has two pools. The main one in the center of the ship including two spas. I would guess the average age to be around mid 50s to mid 60s. Maybe a few old fogies above that thrown in. We had a total of five kids on board and we only saw them in the dining room. It is definately not a party ship like Carnival etc. We are getting ready for a cruise on the Zaandam soon. Enjoy!
