Upping the Entertainment Ante - Part 2


This interactive ballroom extravaganza is an adapted version of the Las Vegas experience. Expect many of the biggest names from 'Dancing With the Stars,' and they're not just performing, they are mingling, teaching specialty classes, and even judging the passengers in competition. Holland America execs say the experience is all about "engagement and interactivity," but it's also more than a little bit about sheer stargazing. The first cruise of the 2013 season features Mark Ballas, Lacey Schwimmer, Joey Fatone and Sabrina Bryan. For any fan who ever dreamed what it might be like to "Samba with Sabrina" (an actual class) or "Lambada with Lacey" (we can always hope), this is THE cruise of the year.
