Do you enjoy having a second entrée some nights in the main dining room on your cruises? One cruise line is testing a new fee on select cruise ships if a passenger orders more than one entrée.
Cruise Critic is reporting that Holland America Line is testing a $10 fee on select cruise ships when passengers order a second entrée in the main dining room.
The four cruise ships that the cruise line is testing this new fee on are Nieuw Amsterdam, Oosterdam, Eurodam, and Zuiderdam. The testing period will last through the month of March. Currently, the cruise line is testing two different options.
The first will have the $10 charge on every night of the cruise. The second test will have the new charge only on the cruise line’s more formal Gala Nights. A passenger’s starter, main course, and dessert will continue to be included in cruise fares.
Holland America Line told Cruise Critic that the reason for the new fee was to help prevent food waste. What do you think of this new fee Holland America is testing? Would you pay $10 for a second entrée on your cruise? Let us know in the comment section below.
