The theatre features full audio-visual staging. The main entertainment is held here twice per night, at 6:30 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. On other nights, there might be 3 music shows, or comedians, magicians, game shows. On some mornings, Hollywood's is used for future cruise talks and lectures, and in the afternoon for Bingo. Entertainment options here include music & dance shows by the theater’s staff, and magic and comedy acts by guest entertainers. During the day, the Hollywood's theatre also hosts trivia quizzes.
  • The Atrium’s Lobby level has the ship’s Reception Desk (guest services, assistance, information), Shore Tours Desk (CMV shore excursions booking and cruise tours information) and the “Onboard Cruise Sales” Office (discount booking of CMV Vasco de Gama cruise deals while on the ship).

  • Located aft is the “Waterfront Restaurant” – a stylishly furnitured open-seating dining room. “Waterfront” is one of all three dining rooms on the CMV Vasco de Gama ship. Each dining room is operated with a la carte (“Your Choice Dining”) menus for breakfast and lunch, and a 4-course dinner menu. Tables seat from 2 to 10 guests. Dining times vary (sea / port days): Breakfast (7:30-9:30am / 7-9am), Lunch (12-2pm), and Dinner (5:30-9:30pm). The Waterfront Restaurant is connected via sets of stairs with the dining rooms aft on the above Deck 8. Seating features different-sized tables as well as semi-circular booths in brown, beige and burnt gold. The cuisine is a mix of classic and innovative, plus kids' menus. The seating system is open and bookings are not required. However, for guests who like to eat dinner before the early theatre show, 5:00 p.m. reservations are available.
