Holland America Switching Up Music Venues
Holland America will soon be switching up the musical entertainment on some of its ships.
The line’s partnership with the Lincoln Center, which since 2016 has resulted in the Lincoln Center Stage venue, will be changing, becoming a traveling ensemble instead of a dedicated venue. The group will travel between ships in the fleet and perform in the main World Stage theater. Holland America has not yet announced what the Lincoln Center Stage venue will become.
Also on Noordam, Westerdam, Oosterdam, and Zuiderdam, B.B. King’s Blues Club is going to be replaced with the Rolling Stone Lounge, which will allow for a bigger variety of music. B.B. King’s will remain on some of Holland America’s ships.
