The ship’s entertainers were on hand, showcasing various venues around the ship to give guests an 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 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 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.
