We’re pleased to share that our award-winning entertainment lineup is expanding across our fleet in 2024, delighting guests through new productions, music and destination-specific performances. Here’s a sneak peek of the experiences that will have you grooving throughout your Holland America Line cruise vacation.

Embark on a Musical Journey

We’re putting a fresh spin on classic cruise productions by combining singing and dancing into a new mainstage experience through four new shows. Multitalented headliners and an ensemble of singers and dancers will have you swaying in your seat as you savor the moments of these concert-style productions:

Hey, Mr. DJ

Iconic radio DJs introduce songs from the ’60s through today in this concert of pop hits.

Having already debuted on Eurodam and Nieuw Statendam, these spectacular shows will also appear on Rotterdam and Zuiderdam by the end of June. We will continue to introduce them across our ships in the months ahead.

Delight in Destination-Focused Entertainment

Complementing these new shows on the World Stage are unique productions specific to the regions we sail to around the world. That means you’ll experience a different entertainment lineup when you cruise Alaska, the Caribbean, Europe, South America and other destinations from sea to sea. Examples include:

Island Magic

Caribbean cruises on Rotterdam, Nieuw Statendam and Eurodam will feature unique orchestral steel drum concerts, playing a versatile repertoire ranging from traditional island sounds to unique versions of classical and pop songs.

Breton Thunder

Cruises to Canada and New England on Volendam and Zuiderdam will introduce an authentic Nova Scotia music experience highlighting the area’s European roots.

Chordial Chamber Trio and Pantheon

Select sailings on Nieuw Statendam, Rotterdam and Zuiderdam in Europe will feature a classical string ensemble or the dynamic vocals of three European tenors.

Step One Dance Company & Major Fourth

Our Alaska cruises will continue to feature the elite members of the Step One Dance Company, who blend innovative choreography with artistic video projection to create immersive experiences. Major Fourth also takes the stage with four singers delivering impactful harmonies that cover all genres and decades.

In addition to the lineup above, we will continue to feature music clubs varying by ship, from the Rolling Stone Lounge and Billboard Onboard to the B.B. King’s Blues Club.

      Holland America Line has ended our partnership with Lincoln Center in New York after many successful years. However, we continue to feature classical music on board select ships with exceptional musicians.

    We were pleased to see new song and dance production shows on Nieuw Statendam. We have enjoyed Step One very much, but it was time for a change.
