Here are the first shots from the new Captain Morgan on the Rocks Island Bar that will celebrate its grand opening Jan. 29 at Half Moon Cay with the visits of ms Noordam and ms Maasdam.
The bar is designed as a 101-foot-long, twin-decked, three-masted schooner “washed up” on Half Moon Cay’s white-sand beach, and the bar décor features nautical artifacts and historic references to Captain Morgan’s exploits in these waters more than 350 years ago.
Matthew Sams, vice president, Caribbean relations for Holland America Line, who is responsible for the operations of Half Moon Cay, oversaw the concept, design and construction of the new bar, which began in Sept. 2010 and was just completed at the end of December. Holland America Line collaborated with Diageo Global Travel & Middle East (GTME), the world’s leading premium drinks business that created Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum in 1983.
These pictures were taken during ms Nieuw Amsterdam’s call Jan. 24.
