Holland America Line

Top 10 Cruise Lines for Specialty Dining

Canaletto's menu features a variety of Italian dishes that can be shared in an intimate group setting

In addition to their elegant main dining rooms, the ships of Holland America feature signature As You Wish dining programs that offer a wealth of choices. Specialty restaurants include Canaletto, serving regional Italian cuisine; Tamarind, with a menu of dim sum and pan-Asian fare; and The Pinnacle Grill, specializing in fresh seafood and aged beef in a refined atmosphere. For a more exclusive experience, book An Evening with Le Cirque at The Pinnacle Grill, which showcases dishes (and the setting) from Sirio Maccioni's legendary New York restaurant. Given Holland America's culinary council, which includes David Burke (David Burke Townhouse in New York), and its Culinary Arts Center programs presented by Food & Wine magazine, it's no wonder this cruise line is a favorite with travelers who appreciate a good meal just as much as they do seeing the sights.

Dinner reservations are $10 per person at Canaletto, $20 at Tamarind and $29 at The Pinnacle Grill. An Evening at Le Cirque is priced at $49 per person.
