Holland America Eurodam Menu Downloads and Ultimate Restaurant Guide

We’ve just returned from a 7-night Alaska cruise on Holland America’s Eurodam, and we were amazed at the variety and quality of food options on this premium ship. If you’re planning a cruise aboard Eurodam, you can look forward to traditional cruise dining and elevated specialty options. One of the best parts about sailing on Eurodam is the terrific food and unique options that ONLY Holland America offers. From Dutch night to their gala menus, you’re sure to create memories when dining on Eurodam. In this article, we have your ultimate guide to dining options and a complete set of Eurodam menus to download.

Launched in 2008 as part of Holland America’s Signature-class ships, Eurodam has been dazzling guests with its sophisticated design, extensive art collections, and exceptional dining options. HAL is proud to be the first cruise line certified as sustainable for Alaska Seafood by Responsible Fisheries Management. You’re sure to taste the difference onboard! We did, and spoiler alert – my husband ordered salmon every day of the cruise. The seafood options on Eurodam truly stand out and can be enjoyed in many venues onboard.

Whether you’re craving a casual bite at the buffet, a cozy room service breakfast, a traditional meal in the main dining room or a gourmet dinner, Eurodam’s variety of dining venues offers something to please every palate.

DISCLAIMER: While we will be including the Eurodam menus directly from our voyage, your cruise menus may be different. It’s common for cruise lines to make variations to menus on occasion.

Included Dining Options:

Main Dining Room – At the heart of Eurodam’s traditional culinary experience, the Main Dining Room serves up a menu of classic dishes and modern fare. Enjoy multi-course meals and warm service in an elegant setting, with options that change daily. On formal night, enjoy the “Gala night” menus. There are typically two Gala or “dressy” nights on each HAL Cruise. You’ll also want to look for “Taste of Alaska” entrees throughout your cruise. Some of our favorites were the Southwestern Alaska Salmon Bowl and Fresh Cod with Endive and Caramelized Orange.

Also, not to be missed- Holland America’s signature Dutch night! Pack some orange clothing (casual or dressy, your choice) and enjoy favorites like bay shrimp cocktail (with dutch cocktail sauce) and green pea soup to start. For entrees, the pork cordon bleu is a favorite! HOT TIP: Don’t miss the Alaskan Brunch, typically held on the last sea day starting at 9:30am running until the lunch hours (hours vary). The Alaskan Brunch offers items like blueberry pancakes, a home smoked Gulf of Alaska Cod Benny, Biscuits and Gravy with Reindeer Sausage, and a Triple Berry Alaskan Tart for dessert.

Another valuable tip– if you are assigned “anytime” dining, but wish for a more traditional experience, request a standing reservation in the dining room each night. In our experience, the EARLIER you agree to dine, the easier it is to find seating near a window. Visit the dining room open hours early in the afternoon on day 1 of the cruise to secure a spot.

Lido Market – For a more relaxed atmosphere, the Lido Market offers a full, staff-served buffet-style dining experience with a wide range of choices from carving stations, comfort foods, fruit, kid food, salads and sandwiches to hot entrees and desserts. Self serve coffee, tea, water, lemonade, iced tea and juices (at breakfast) are also available at no charge. Servers will gladly bring you bar drinks on request. There’s also a salad bar where you can choose from set salad combinations (like a Cobb or Asian inspired salad), or build-your-own options.

Typical hours for the Lido Market are: 7am to 10:30am (full breakfast), 11:30am to 3pm (lunch), 2pm to 4pm (snacks), 5:30pm-8pm (dinner) and sometimes, late night hours like [10:30]-11:30pm (limited food stations). HOURS VARY, check your newsletter. HOT TIP: The Lido Market offers special dinner themes throughout your cruise. For example, night one featured steak and mussels and while in Juneau, there was a “baked salmon” theme. Watch your daily newsletter for details. Often, these themes mirror menu items from the main dining room menu, so if you’re tired from a day ashore, don’t overlook the buffet.

Holland America is VERY serious about their afternoon tea. In fact, they’ve just upgraded the experience and it is WICKED good. Tea is served most sea days at 3pm in the main dining room, and it gets busy, so show up early. There may be a short wait outside the dining room for team, but don’t worry- the line should move fast.

Here’s the nitty gritty on what’s in that glorious tea tower! I told you- they mean business!

Top tier (Dutch sweets):

Moorkop (Dutch Cream puff), whipped cream, mandarin. Maple Stroopwafel, Napoleon cream, fresh berries. Boterkoek (Dutch Butter Cake), almond slice. Gevulde Koeken (Dutch Cookie), Marzipan, short sugar pastry. Appletaart (Mini Dutch Apple Tartlets), cookie base, cinnamon, raisins 

Middle Tier: Scones

Raisin and Plain Scones with assorted jam, whipped cream 

Bottom Tier (Savory Dutch Sandwiches):

Bay Shrimp on Brioche, Dutch cocktail sauce.  Egg Salad and Cress, white bread, mayonnaise, mustard. Smoked Salmon, Dill cream cheese, whole wheat.  Coronation Chicken, whole wheat, curry, yogurt, dried apricots, cilantro

Dive-In (Burgers and Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs)- Perfect for a quick and tasty meal, Dive-In is famous for its gourmet burgers and hot dogs, complete with all the fixings you could want. Typical open hours on our sailing were 11:30am to 6pm. HOT TIP: Dive in can get busy. Be patient, and at times, prepare to wait a bit for your meal, as burgers are cooked to order. You may be given a pager during peak times- especially when the pool is busy.

New York Pizza – Grab a slice of your favorite pie at New York Pizza, where you can enjoy custom-made pizzas baked right before your eyes. Located on deck 9, aft, it’s easy to miss this spot! Hours on our sailing were usually 11:30am to 11:30pm, making it a good spot when other dining venues are closed between meals. In addition to New York Pizza, they also offer a few salads and desserts. HOT TIP: order your pizza, custom! Usually, this venue has some slices sitting under a heat lamp, ready to go. BUT, for a tasty and HOT pizza pie, order one and wait for it. Totally worth it!

24-Hour Room Service – Enjoy a sandwich, soup, salad, or sweet treat brought right to the comfort of your Eurodam Stateroom. Holland America also offers complimentary breakfast in-room. Simply place the room service door hanger outside your stateroom by 2am. While upcharge indulgences are available for breakfast (think lobster benedict & steak and eggs), HAL Is one of the few cruise lines to offer hot breakfast at no charge in your room.

Options like an American breakfast (eggs, hash browns, sausage, and bacon) and a veggie frittata are great options to fuel up before a busy day ashore. You can also order basics like juice, coffee, pastries, yogurt and cereal. NOTE: you can find the full room service menu in the Holland America Navigator app, or on your stateroom TV. This menu tends to vary, so be sure to check for updates when you board!

Specialty Dining Options (Additional Charge Applies):

Pinnacle Grill – Indulge in a luxurious steakhouse experience with premium cuts of meat and fresh seafood. The Pinnacle Grill is known for its delicious steaks and chops, refined atmosphere and exceptional service. Don’t miss the classic steakhouse sides and the signature Baked Alaska for dessert. The wine is excellent, too! HOT TIP: Eurodam’s dining reservation line is open 24 hours per day. Simply dial “88” from your stateroom phone to make dining reservations.

Tamarind – Offering a taste of the Far East, Tamarind excels in Asian fusion cuisine. Starters like the “Satay Sampler” and “Jewels of the Sea” soup are immaculately presented. Dishes like the Wasabi Soy Crusted Beef and the Crispy Duck are must-tries. Dungeness Crab fried rice is also tasty, as a side dish. For dessert, the Jasmine Flower Cheesecake is a beautifully balanced treat.

If you’re feeling full and considering skipping a heavy dessert, try the Exotic Fruits- topped with a delectable mango sorbet. Trust me, you’ll make room for this refreshing treat. It’s, by far, the most delicious fruit dessert we’ve ever tasted at sea! HOT TIP: Try the cocktails here! The Shiso Sour & Wasabi Cocktails are delicious.

Nami Sushi—We believe Nami is the “hidden gem” of dining options on Eurodam. Sharing space with Tamarind, Nami offers made-to-order sushi and sashimi, small bites, entrees, and desserts. The rolls are divine and wonderful for sharing. HOT TIP: Order a few things and share at Nami. A few rolls, a main dish, and some desserts are perfect for enjoying Nami!

Canaletto – This Italian restaurant is a gem on the Eurodam, serving classic Italian dishes in a cozy setting. The menu features favorites like Spaghetti Carbonara and Veal Marsala, but the real star might just be the Tiramisu, a perfect ending to any meal. HOT TIP: While the vibe at Canaletto is a bit less “fancy” due to it’s location at the back of the buffet, the price is lower than the average cruise specialty restaurant. Give it a try if you’re a pasta lover!

Pop-up Restaurants– Eurodam currently offers two pop-up dining experiences. Morimoto by Sea, and the Alaska Seafood Boil (usually located at the buffet). Check your newsletter for nights/venues for the pop-up experiences and reserve these early.

Each of these specialty dining options charges a nominal fee, but they promise an elevated dining experience well worth the extra cost. Whether you’re dining at the Pinnacle Grill or enjoying the innovative dishes at Tamarind, each meal is an event in itself.

Our final thoughts on Holland America’s dining options

For a mid-size ship, there are many dining choices on Eurodam. We found it difficult to try them all- just another reason to book our next Holland America cruise! The culinary venues on Holland America’s Eurodam offer an array of options to suit any mood or occasion. From elegant, seated dinners in the Main Dining Room to casual nights at the buffet, and upscale “foodie” offerings of the ship’s various specialty restaurants, every meal is prepared with care and served with pride.
