So you think you can dance? Compete with the stars on Holland America

So you think you can dance? If so, you have your chance as part of Holland America’s “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” program. It features a dance competition in which 15 guests (one for each ship in the Holland’s fleet) receive a free cruise and a chance to compete for a Mirror Ball Trophy on the “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” Champions Cruise on ms Nieuw Amsterdam Jan. 12, 2014.

Continuing through Nov. 25, sailings feature a “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” program that includes complimentary dance lessons with the ship’s dance professionals and a dance-off competition.dancing

The Champions Cruise next January will feature professional dancers and celebrities from the hit ABC show. Following preliminary rounds on each cruise, “finalists will be paired with a Holland America Line dance professional to perform one of the show’s routines and compete against their fellow guests center stage in the ship’s main show lounge.”

A panel of judges consisting of senior ship officers, shipboard professional dancers and other cruise staff will score participants’ performances and combine those scores with audience appreciation scores for a total tally to determine the winning guest Cruise Champion for each cruise.

In December, the guest Cruise Champions with the highest scores from each of Holland America Line’s 15 participating ships will win a free ocean view stateroom on the Champions Cruise to compete for Grand Champion.

On the Champions Cruise, the 15 winning guests and their professional shipboard dance partners will perform in the main show lounge for shipboard guests and other celebrities and professional dancers from the show who will be onboard. The winning couple will walk away with the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy and title of Holland America Line’s “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” Grand Champion.
