Holland America Masterchef Cruise Adds Bonus Events

The culinary program of Holland America Line offers a number of unique experiences found on no other cruise line.  It’s a dynamic effort that continues to evolve in all areas of operation. Appropriately, Fox TV‘s Masterchef reality show chose Holland America Line for a themed sailing that brings together amateur and home chefs for an at sea cooking competition.  The Holland America Masterchef Cruise has a slate of entertaining and theatrical programming on the seven-day cruise sailing in November.
