The concept will debut as part of the innovative Music Walk area on Holland America Line’s Nieuw Statendam when it joins the fleet in December 2018.

It will be introduced aboard Koningsdam that same month when she undergoes her first drydock in Freeport, Bahamas since her launch in 2016.

The Music Walk on Holland America Line ships offers a variety of musical experiences and genres to create a live experience unlike any other at sea.

In addition to Rolling Stone on Nieuw Statendam and Koningsdam, venues in Music Walk include Lincoln Center Stage, Billboard Onboard and B.B. King’s Blues Club.
