Leading cruise provider Holland America Line
has announced plans to deliver a number of entertainment enhancements across its fleet.
Holland America Line will be delivering the changes as part of its $200 million Signature of Excellence programme, Cruise Talk Central reports.
Work will begin in spring 2009, with the ms Statendam, ms Maasdam, ms Ryndam, ms Veendam and ms Rotterdam all requiring a one-month dry dock stay.
Commenting on the plans, Richard D Meadows, executive vice president of marketing, sales and guest programmes at the cruise line, said: "The new musical offerings and entertainment initiatives are designed to be even more compelling and relevant to today's premium cruiser."
The new enhancements will offer passengers a wider choice of entertainment venues, he added.
As part of the plans, the ships will be home to a new 'Showroom at Sea' entertainment space, as well as new musical groups.
Established over 153 years ago, Holland America Line offers dozens of itineraries, ranging in length from two to 108 days.
