Default Teens on Holland America?

I'm going on a cruise on Holland America's Zuiderdam in a little over a week and im nervous that i wont find anyone my age. Im 17 and im hoping to find people within the 15-17 age range to hang out with. I know it's break for the catholic schools, but im not too sure about the public schools. Anyone ever have any trouble finding teens on Holland America?
Thanks! (:

First off, welcome to Cruisemates, I'm your teen host, Michael. If you have any questions or anything let me know, or post something up and one of the members will be more than happy to help you out.

Answering your question, you really shouldn't have a problem finding Teens. It's spring/Easter break season, and I assume you're on a Caribbean sailing (or so it would appear), so I wouldn't be too worried.

Hope it helps!

Nice to meet you . Im lauren (if my username hasn't already given it away). And yup its a partial transit cruise through the Panama Canal. I just was unsure if public schools had off as well that week. Last time i cruised on Holland America there weren't a lot of teens cruising and most of them were about 17 but thanks for the answer

Ah, yes. I was looking through the itineraries for Zuiderdam, but couldn't find yours exactly, so I took a guess. Anywho, even if there aren't as many teens as you would like, do keep in mind that the itinerary you'll be on is extraordinary. I mean how many people can say they've cruised the Panama Canal? I know I can only say I've seen the Canal, and watched ships go through, but I've never done a transit.

I find that a lot gets forgotten beyond all the social aspects of cruising in the cultural aspects. Take a few minutes to be in awe of what you're doing, and enjoy it, regardless of whom you meet.

On that note, public schools typically vary on when they are off, I'm sure you'll find some public schoolers around.
