Holland America Cruise Line's Authority!

The Dining Experience.

Holland America Line serves incomparable cuisine in a variety of wonderful ways - from bountiful buffets and dress-up dinners to hors d'oeuvres on your verandah and a picnic on the beach.

They offer the most extensive menus at sea (with more than 500 different food items on a typical 7-day cruise), blending together modern Continental cuisine, regional specialties appropriate to each cruising area and traditional favorites. Their chefs are all members of the prestigious Confrerie de la Chaine des Rotisseurs gourmet society.

Yes, your mouth will water at the aroma of so many delicious options. But your other senses will delight as well - fine dining has always been the rule on our ships with signature touches like Rosenthal china, starched linens, silver and fresh flowers to enhance your meal.

With so many tastes to tempt you and venues to enjoy, you're sure to experience the many pleasures world-class dining can offer.

Holland America Cruise DiningMain Dining Room.
Each evening as the dinner hour approaches, the melodious call of the chime master invites guests to the main dining room, where another incredible experience awaits. Rare art, elegant staircases and panoramic windows surround tables laid with fine linens, silver and sparkling stemware. Servers greet guests and present menus of sumptuous five-course selections, from appetizers and drinks to entrées and dessert.
Savor seared sea scallops, filet mignon topped with crab and Hollandaise, and wines rated "excellent" by The Wine Spectator. Fresh herbs and imaginative combinations make lighter fare an equally tempting choice, and they gladly offer a kosher menu and options to meet special dietary needs upon request.

Holland America's Lido RestaurantLido Restaurant.
Their Lido restaurant was the first of its kind in the cruise industry. And although there are many imitators, none matches their extensive menu or helpful service. Choose the Lido for a relaxed, casual meal.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, the Lido offers a broad selection of freshly carved meats and seafood, fruits and vegetables, breads and cereals, beverages and desserts. Choose from sizzling Asian stir-fry, popular pizza and pasta dishes, festive Mexican fare, fresh salads and gourmet sandwiches.

The Lido also offers different seating venues. Eat indoors in the air-conditioned restaurant or enjoy the fresh air on deck.

Premium hand-selected cuts of beef and unique items like wild mushroom ravioli are also featured. A collection of delectable desserts naturally includes baked Alaska.
