    I thoroughly enjoyed this program on our April 19 Panama cruise on the Zuiderdam. The daytime classes and the evening performances were outstanding. I hope to have the pleasure of seeing this continue on future cruises.

    Bravo Holland America for partnering with ‘Dancing with the Stars. Cruising,
    dancing and Chocolate Volcano Cake are three of my favorite things. My husband and I were finalist on our May 2013 Canada, New England cruise on the Maasdam.
    I had the honor of winning cruise champion thanks to my very talented singer/ dancer partner. The singers and dancers on our cruise were the most talented we have ever experienced.
    We look forward to future cruises, dancing and chocolate volcano cake!
