Few forms of entertainment are as universal as music, and Holland America Line rolls out the red carpet in that regard onboard its newest fleet of ‘Dam’ cruise ships. Guests sailing on the brand-new Nieuw Statendam and her sister Koningsdam will be able to experience one of the newest innovations to the Music Walk.
In December 2018, the Rolling Stone Rock Room, a partnership with Rolling Stone magazine, debuted on both vessels. Here, guests can enjoy four decades’ worth of complimentary music each evening, with a five-piece live band kicking out the hits until the wee hours.
Music at the Rolling Stones Rock Room is culled directly from Rolling Stone’s own list of chart-toppers from the past 40 years. With so many well-known (and well-loved) songs at their disposal, bands on board Nieuw Statendam and Koningsdam can select their song line-ups from hundreds of toe-tapping singles.
Expect a fun, energetic crowd of cruisers of all ages here. Listen to the music while nursing a cocktail, or belt out the lyrics in an all-out singalong—the choice is yours.
Holland America Line has always had a certain special quality to it. Founded in 1873, the line has managed to spend more than a century balancing the traditions of the past while looking toward the future.
The onboard atmosphere is convivial but not stuffy; a place where cruisers young and old, new and experienced can each find something that appeals directly to them. Holland America’s Music Walk is just such an innovation.
