We’ll take a trip down memory lane to relive the incredible past 10 years of the cruise and the entire Malt Shop era. This is going to be fun!”

The Malt Shop Memories cruise surrounds guests with the sights, sounds, fashion and fun of the ‘50s and ‘60s.  From concerts that fill the days and nights, to sock hop and prom night parties, to live Q&A panels where celebrities regale audiences with their stories, to interactive events with superstars including cooking demonstrations and shore excursions, the cruise is a vacation experience like no other. All will take place aboard the award-winning Holland America Line Nieuw Amsterdam, a Signature class ship with luxury accommodations, dining and world-class entertainment venues.  Currently scheduled to sail from October 30-November 6, 2021 (Ft.
