Just came off of Westerdam cruise in Alaska with 7 year old--He loved it. Last year we did the Volendam cruse with my 13 year old and then 6 year old--the kids loved it, the staff would do anything for them, and we had a blast iin Alaska. The Westerdam has a very organized kids program, game room, Club HAL--don't worry there is sooooo much to do for everyone (Do not miss the Chocolate Decadence Night--it's unbelieveable). We love Hal, especially the Dining Room Head Steward Enriques and Ronald(on the Westerdam) and the concierage in the Neptune Lounge--Gilbert--on the Volendam are terrific. Also took my mother and husband--it was a wonderful trip for the entire family!!!
