Holland America Line makes it easy for you to share a world of fascinating cultures, natural wonders and engaging adventures with your entire family. Onboard these spacious, mid-sized ships — the perfect size for younger ones to explore without being overwhelmed — your kids can enjoy supervised, age-appropriate games and activities with others their age, making friendships that will last a lifetime. Plus, family-friendly shore excursions will open up the world in new and exciting ways. Read on to learn more.

Onboard your Holland America Line family vacation, all the kids in your crew will love Club HAL. Here they’ll be able to join other kids their age for arts and crafts, sports, video game competitions, scavenger hunts, challenging team games and themed parties. While kids 3-6 are enjoying “Ships Ahoy Pirate Treasure Hunt Adventure,” tweens can compete in an ice-cream eating contest while teens drink mocktails while learning how to make jewelry or playing volleyball against the staff.

On port days, if you aim to visit a “boring old” museum or archeological site, you can leave your kids onboard in the safe, capable hands of Club HAL staff. That way, they can happily play with their friends while you can fully absorb the art and culture at your destination. Or explore the world together through a wide range of award-winning shoreside experiences that suit the interests and activity levels of everyone in your family. Just imagine how much your kids will like swimming with dolphins in Mexico or the Caribbean, getting their “brick on” at the original Legoland in Northern Europe or dogsledding in Alaska.
