Holland America Line has joined with global music magazine Rolling Stone to introduce a new classic rock club onboard sister ships Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam this December.

Part of the ships’ Music Walk area, the Rolling Stone Rock Room will enable cruise guests to watch a live five-piece band chronicling ‘rock history’ by performing a collection of hits inspired by the magazine’s top song lists from the past four decades.

“We are so excited to tap Rolling Stone’s incredible expertise to create a new live entertainment venue that will appeal to all our guests,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “Innovative and authentic music experiences are at the heart of all our entertainment offerings and is what distinguishes us in the industry. Classic rock appeals to people across generations because the music is universal, and Rolling Stone Rock Room will bring another incredible live music venue to our ships.”

This marks the first time that Rolling Stone has partnered with a cruise line.

“Rolling Stone and Holland America Line are two iconic brands that share the vision of bringing the best in music to cruisers,” said Meng Ru Kuok, CEO of Rolling Stone International. “We’re looking forward to this unique brand experience and the first partnership of its kind for us, to bring the Rolling Stone brand to life in the ultimate live rock venue at sea.”
