Seafood lovers rejoice! If the recent announcement about our new global fresh fish program made your mouth water, you’ll love how we’re building on this groundbreaking effort. That’s because we’re teaming up with Vital Choice®, the trusted source for premium wild-caught fish and seafood, to help guests enjoy vacation-inspired dining with fresh fish cuisine recipes at home.

Through our collaboration, guests will be able to enjoy at home three Vital Choice-inspired dishes developed by our chefs, ordering fish varieties online or through the Vital Choice and Harry & David catalogues. Recipes include Wild Alaska Halibut, Wild Pacific King Salmon and Wild Sea Bass. Guests will also be able to enjoy the three Vital Choice-inspired dishes while onboard in the Caribbean and Alaska.

“Holland America Line and Vital Choice share the belief that fish should taste great and be sustainably sourced, making this an ideal collaboration for our guests and Vital Choice customers,” said Michael Stendebach, vice president of food, beverage and guest services for Holland America Line. “Our team of chefs developed recipes that perfectly highlight the varieties of fish we will serve in Lido Market and are featured in the Vital Choice catalogue, and we look forward to debuting the dishes on board.”

Kicking off this month, our guests cruising the Caribbean will be able to select a Gold Gala Pan-Seared Sea Bass dish in Lido Market. When the Alaska season resumes in April, Pacific Halibut with Lime Tarragon Aioli, and Alaska Grilled King Salmon Filet with Capers and Dill, will be added to the Lido Market. These fresh fish dishes at Lido Market are complimentary for all guests.

“With Holland America Line, and through exceptional cuisine, we’re furthering our vision to inspire more expression, connection, and celebration,” said Joseph Rowland, group president, Gourmet Foods & Gift Baskets, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. “By uniting our dedication to high-quality, sustainably sourced fish and innovative recipes, we’re fostering connections and creating memorable culinary experiences for all to enjoy, whether they’re cruising or savoring at home.”
