Without reading other responses, I will give you my views on HAL and the age group. Yes, you will see young families even on the 10 day and longer cruises, but the average of the HAL cruiser is about 6 years older than any other line. That may not sound like a lot, but "average" is the clue. We love HAL, the service, the crew and the cabins. What we did not like, was the age breakdown, I might add, last time we cruised we were in our late 60s and glad we were with friends.
Why do you not read the responses to OP before posting your comments? I wonder why we read yours if you don't care to read ours.
Sorry, but I always wonder when I read a poster doesn't bother reading what anyone else has to say.
