After visiting several topics I have not yet found anyone who is sailing on the Oosterdam 4/4/04 f/Ft. Lauderdale. This will be our first cruise ever, me-husband-daughter 11, daughter 16. Are we the only ones? I hope there will be kids on this ship or my daughters will throw me overboard!!
I'm sure there will be some kids and teens on the ship, especially since March and April are spring break times throughout the country. We were on the Zuiderdam in late March last year and there were lots of kids/teens on board. See my article on this site "Holland America's New Family Approach." However, don't expect hordes of kids as you would find on Carnival, Disney or Royal Caribbean cruise lines.
