Default Would my grad enjoy this cruise?

I am taking my daughter on a European cruise as her graduation gift. I am considering the HAL Veendam in June because of the itinerary. My concern is I know HAL has a different passenger mix than say CCL or RCCL. Do you think there will be enough other teens and activities so she will enjoy her time on the ship? I know that HAL typically has an older mix but I was wondering if it there might be more younger cruisers in summer months.

This will be her first cruise, so it is hard for her to help guide me as she doesn't have anything to compare to. Any advice or input to help me make this a great trip for her would be appreciated!

I have cruise on both HAL and Carnival. HAL is BY FAR my favorite! If your daughter enjoys good food and being treated like royalty (what girl doesnt?) then im sure she will love this cruise! Since its in June, I would expect a good number of teens to be sailing. And since your sailing to Europe, that is more of a destination that is all about exploring and experiencing the culture, and i would think that more European teens would be sailing. I wish my parents would take me on a cruise for my graduation!! That is an amazing gift!
