You can expect an elegant ship that will be beautifully decorated for the holidays. Also be aware that you can expect lots of families with kids. While I've never taken a holiday cruise, I watched the Amsterdam disembark from their holiday cruise in January 2006. Tons of kids getting off with their families.

But, know that I am not saying that the increase in children will in any way impact your cruise. If those kids are well behaved and their parents conscientious about their parenting duties, you will have a great cruise ... and a wonderful way of celebrating the holidays without having to do any of the normally associated work.

Sounds like a plan to me!

It'll give you the 411 on all of the HAL excursions for your ports.

Rita you are awesome! Both my girls (15 and 11) as well as DH will have a grand time. Glad to hear there will be plenty of playmates on the ship.

I doubt they'll have any trouble meeting new friends onboard. Holiday sailings always attract lots of families with kids.

Hope you all have a great time!
