So extraordinarily memorable
is the cuisine aboard Holland America Lines ships that the entire fleet has been
inducted into the prestigious Confrerie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs,
a gourmet society founded in Paris and devoted to promoting the pleasures of the
table. Which, in turn,
prompted the society to create a special badge denoting the new
de la Marine category, of which Holland America was the very first recipient.
What does it take to earn such an esteemed award? Cuisine lovingly prepared and
exquisitely presented in a number of exciting dining venues.
For the Kids-Call it what you will - finicky, particular,
hard-to-please - the kids will tell you it's a matter of taste.
Which is why they've designed a menu that includes their favorites:
hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, fish n' chips, chicken dippers, spaghetti
