Holland America Line does offer As You Wish Dining where you can show-up at any during the dinner hours and be seated as a table comes available. However, it is advised that you inform the Maître D' of your preferred dining time prior to 4 PM. You can choose As You Wish Dining when you book your cruise. Once on the ship, any guest is welcome to ask the Maître D' for a preferred dining time and they will do their best to accomodate your request.

Cuisine in the Ryndam's Main Dining Room

The Ryndam's main dining room menu includes vegetarian selections, four appetizers, and at least five main entrees. The main entrees include pastas, salads, beef, chicken, and occasional lamb or lobster. Desserts, by most accounts, are very tempting -- the dessert menu varies daily. Chef-recommended fare and New Holland's Greenhouse Spa Cuisine are highlighted on the menu.
