The cruise line’s popular Orange Party will be held on this day and guests will be able to enjoy fresh-made poffertjes in Crow’s Nest Café.

Holland America Line has also partnered with Daelmans Stroopwafel and a stroopwafel will be a turn-down treat on every pillow.

Michael Stendebach, vice president of food, beverage and rooms division for Holland America Line, gave the following statement:

“Holland America Line remains deeply connected to our roots in the Netherlands, and Dutch Day is the perfect way to honor our history through experiences that celebrate the culinary culture of the country. Our guests appreciate special touches like Daelmans Stroopwafel for turn down or a dish in the dining room that is distinctly Dutch, and we’re excited to expand the cultural experience for an entire day to showcase more of our heritage.”

Poffertjes will also now be available every day of the cruise in the Crow’s Nest Café for a small charge.
