We are booked on the May 19th cruise out of Vancouver to Alaska. My son is (almost) 7 and is looking forward to the HAL program. From the posts I have read here, I hope there will be a few kids on board! One question - I know some cruise lines have children programs on the evenings of the formal nights - does HAL do the same?
We just went on the Zuiderdam last month and my 9 year old enjoyed the Club HAL youth program. They do have a nightly youth program however it doesn't start until 8 p.m. Thus, your child will be staying with you during dinner. While some youth counselors on other lines take kids to dinner on formal nights, the HAL youth counselors do not.
Feel free to ask add'l questions. Also, make sure you read my article on Club HAL/Zuiderdam recently posted on this section of the site.
