Here’s the story of a lovely lady who took her dancing shoes on two Holland America Line “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” theme cruises. Florence Henderson — best known as matriarch Carol Brady on the classic hit TV series “The Brady Bunch” and “Dancing with the Stars” Season 11 contestant — is scheduled to join the June 6 and June 13, 2015, theme cruises aboard ms Veendam to Bermuda and Canada and New England, respectively.
The special “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” theme sailings also will feature television personality Carson Kressley and “Dancing with the Stars” professional dancers Tristan MacManus and two-time Mirrorball Trophy winner Kym Johnson who is hot off the current season of the hit ABC television show.
“Florence Henderson is one of the greatest pop culture icons of all time, and we’re excited to welcome her to our stage,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “Her vibrant personality and infectious smile are sure to bring joy to our guests, along with the other talented celebrities and pro dancers onboard.”
“Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” Theme Cruises
Each theme cruise features lively guest performances from the professional dancers and celebrities, who dazzle the audience with routines from the television show and exciting new choreographed dances. Additional events on theme cruises include dance lessons with the ship’s professional dancers; a special fashion show featuring glamorous show costumes; and a chance to meet the dance pros and celebrities, ask questions and take photos with them.
“Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” Dance Competition for Guests
Beginning with cruises that departed on or after Sept. 21, 2014, and continuing with sailings departing through Nov. 24, 2015, every sailing on all 15 ships in the Holland America Line fleet will feature exclusive “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” programming. Included are complimentary dance lessons with the ship’s dance pros and a dance competition that gives guests an opportunity to compete for a chance to represent their ship on the Champions Cruise.
Winners of the guest competitions with the highest scores from each of Holland America Line’s ships will win a free ocean-view stateroom for two on the Champions Cruise to compete for the coveted Mirrorball Trophy and title of Holland America Line’s “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” Champion. There will be one winner from each ship on the Champions Cruise sailing aboard ms Nieuw Amsterdam Jan. 10, 2016.
