Interactive Bar Games on Holland America

Mix, Holland America Line's newest lounge venue, is taking bar entertainment to the next level. The cruise line is installing five Microsoft Surface units in the lounge space.

While visiting any of Mix's three bars, Martini, Champagne, and Spirits & Ales, guests can use the touch-screen technology on Microsoft Surface to play checkers, chess, air hockey, Tetris, cards and Touch Sports football, basketball and skee-ball.

The units are already available on ms Veendam and will be completed on ms Rotterdam by mid-December. In the future they will be installed on ms Ryndam, ms Statendam and ms Maasdam.
