Great Cruise, Wrong Demographic for us

Holland America is great at what they do best: great service and great food. My wife and I are 45, and we have 4 boys aged 7 to 17. Most of the other passengers were 60+, so at times we felt out of place. Our kids still had a pretty good time, but they opted not to enroll in the organized kids programs. They felt it was too much like day care to get them away from the main areas of the ship.
Nothing wrong with HAL, but while we are a younger family, we will try some other lines out.
