Each “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” theme cruise features guest performances from the professional dancers and stars, who dazzle the audience with routines from the television show. Additional events include dance lessons with the ship’s professional dancers, a special fashion show featuring glamorous show costumes and a chance to meet the dance pros and celebrities, ask questions and take photos with them.

The Dec. 6 cruise also is the Champions Cruise and will feature 15 guests representing each ship in the fleet competing for the coveted Mirrorball Trophy and title of Holland America Line’s “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” Champion.
