It’s National Breakfast Month! Start Your Day with Holland America Line’s Top Options

September is National Breakfast Month, celebrating what some feel is the most important meal. We tend to think any opportunity for a delicious dish on a Holland America Line cruise is worth taking but we do believe that breakfast can set the tone for the rest of your day.

Whether you’re gearing up for an active shore excursion and want to pack in some protein or easing into a calm sea day and opt for breakfast on your verandah, you’ll definitely find the right option for you on any of our beautiful ships.

Rise and shine to a variety of breakfast selections at Lido Market. Whatever you can dream of for breakfast, they are likely to serve here! Selections include pancakes, pastries, cereal, bacon, sausage, oatmeal, muesli, fresh fruit, yogurt and eggs and omelets cooked to your liking. Enjoy fresh-squeezed orange juice or grab a ready-made breakfast sandwich to take with you to enjoy later in the day!


The Main Dining Room is perfect for those seeking breakfast in an elegant setting.

For guests looking to enjoy a more elegant-style breakfast, the Main Dining Room is the perfect place. Opt for a table for two, meet your group, or join fellow cruisers at a larger table as Holland America Line’s top-notch wait staff serves you.


Explorations Cafe

Explorations Cafe

The Explorations Café powered by The New York Times is a comfortable café environment where guests can find their favorite espresso drinks and complimentary fresh pastries. Sip on a latte and catch up on the latest news with newspaper printouts from a variety of outlets, complete a crossword puzzle, or log in and touch base with friends and family using one of the computers while you have a light breakfast.


Inspired by blue and white Delftware, and of course, Holland America Line’s Dutch heritage, Koningsdam’s Grand Dutch Cafe is the perfect place to enjoy a morning bite. Sip on a coffee or tea and choose from one of the many Dutch-inspired options like fresh baked waffles and cinnamon swirl crepes or select one of the delicious pastries on display.



There’s nothing quite like sleeping in and having breakfast delivered to your stateroom. The 24-hour In-Room (or on-verandah) dining service is perfect for guests who want to wake up at a leisurely pace and enjoy the first meal of the day in the comfort of their cabin. Menus feature a variety of options from different types of cereal to fresh croissants. You can even pair your choice with a Mimosa or Bloody Mary!

    We sailed on the ms Rotterdam in June, and the breakfast service and selection in the Lido Market was wonderful [so, too, the rest of the time]!
    Love those cinnamon sticky buns!
