Holland-America Line Theater Program, 1970

An island dancer shakes her maracas while accompanied by congo and trumpet under the moonlight and stars on this program cover by French poster designer Jan Lavies for "Going French." Going French was the crew show during the 10th Around-the-World Cruise on the S.S. Rotterdam. The Rotterdam, launched in 1958 and once the "Grande Dame" of the seas, was a groundbreaking design, with features found on cruise ships today. She was retired in 2000.

The "old" cruise ship underwent restoration in Poland and Germany and in 2008 was returned to the city of Rotterdam. She is scheduled to open to the public on July 27, 2009 as a combination museum/hotel. Bon Voyage!
