Lido Buffet onboard the Veendam
For casual indoor and outdoor dining, the Lido Restaurant onboard the Veendam is the main option. This expansive buffet boasts made to order fare such as omelettes, as well as pasta, pizza, gourmet sandwiches, and a salad bar. The Lido receives fair reviews because there can be long lines during peak hours. Dine indoors or out from 6:30am to 11:00am for breakfast, and from 11:30am to 2:00pm for lunch. The deli is open from 2:00pm to 5:00pm. Dinner is from 7:30pm to 10:30pm, and reviews suggest you'll be happier at the Rotterdam. While there's no cost for food, specialty drinks, wines, beer, and soft drinks are available for purchase from the current bar menu.
Open for lunch only, the Veendam's Terrace Grill, also on Lido Deck, serves pizza, nachos, sandwiches, gourmet sausages, and grilled burgers and hot dogs. Hamburgers from the grill receive great guest reviews! Check for open hours once aboard as these do vary based upon cruise itinerary.
Aft of the pool, stop by here for a huge slice of pizza. If you like thick pizza, you'll love this! Check when aboard for hours.
Tips for all Lido Restaurants onboard the Veendam:
The Lido Restaurant and Terrace Grill do not require reservations and are casual dining alternatives to the main dining room.
Finding a table is usually not a concern, but lines for cook-to-order can be long.
Guest reviews suggest the buffet in the Lido is quite crowded, and it's easy to bump into people.
Guest reviews also indicate that you may find self serve at the buffet rather than service at your table during the Lido's dinner hours.
If you want to get away from the crowds and lines during breakfast and lunch, The Rotterdam is a better choice.
There is no cost for food.
Specialty drinks, wines, beer, and soft drinks are available for purchase from the current bar menu.
