New Captain Morgan on the Rocks Island Bar Opens on Half Moon Cay

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.

Erik Elvejord is Holland America Line’s director of public relations.

    It’s open once the first tender lands at HMC and closes when the last tender goes back to the ship! Enjoy!

    What? Rum all sold out!!???
    Only Russian Vodka left! You must be joking!
    Looks like you need a hi priority requisition for Rum – 999 rush – delivered by the U.S. Navy!
    Wait, that will take too long. How about a beach landing by the American Marines! You should never run out of RUM!
