I am going on my first Celebrity cruise in September so can not respond with knowledge of comparison of HAL vs. Celebrity.
However, I can tell you from experience that not ONE of my HAL cruises was the average age 80. I am currently 52 yrs. old and have been taking cruises on HAL since I was 18 yrs old. On the R and S class HAL ships the average ages go from 50 to 65 depending on length and time of year of cruise. On the Vista class the average age is less. Most of the Vista class cruises are of 7 day lengths. There are 4 of these ships and they are geared for multi-aged families.

It's interestng to hear you and Kuki suggest that since both lines operate in the "premium" segment of the market.............. I hear that the median age of the passengers on a typical Holland America cruise is about eighty. Thus, I would not recommend the line to anybody under about sixty or so.
