Hey All! Pictured above is Emma Slater, Derek Hough, and Sharna Burgess on the judging panel for Holland America’s Dancing With The Stars cruise now taking place in the Caribbean. If you’d like to see more pictures visit and be watching Chris Owen’s Pinterest page. Also, Chris has given an update in a blog. Below is a take for what he wrote about the Dancing With The Stars pros on board. Be sure to read the link for more.
The ship’s entertainers were on hand, showcasing various venues around the ship to give guests an idea of what to expect, and were well received. Based on the night’s preview performances, there is much to look forward to as the ship makes its way through the Caribbean itinerary. Still, headlining tonight’s show were the 15 finalists competing for the coveted mirror ball trophy, one from each ship in the Holland America line.
They came from Florida to California to compete and one by one, television personality Carson Kressley introduced each of them as passengers began choosing favorites in what would be an integral part of the experience. It was just a preview of what was yet to come.
On the ship but absent from the night’s performance were singer Joey Fatone from Orlando (who I met at Port Everglades, during curbside luggage check-in), dancers Tristan MacManus, Kym Johnson, Sharna Burgess and Emma Slater along and actress Sabrina Bryan. But it was Derek Hough, the Emmy® Award-winning dancing professional best known for his role on the hit ABC television show “Dancing with the Stars, that drew the biggest round of applause from the crowd as Kressley announced each star on board.
Gear up! If you weren’t able to sail on the upcoming Dancing With The Stars At Sea Cruise in January, you can do so on another date.

We heard a little on this news yesterday with Emma Slater in a previous posting. Now the Miami Herald is reporting “Dancing With The Stars is going to sea”. Holland America is to conduct six theme cruises featuring Dancing With The Stars events. More details below including the pros picked to dance.
The popular TV show Dancing With the Stars is going to sea. Holland America will conduct six theme cruises featuring Dancing With the Stars events in 2013 and early 2014. In addition, the line will conduct an exclusive Dancing With the Stars program on every sailing of all 15 of its ships.
