Holland America Line is going to begin offering “As You Wish” dining policies for its passengers. Starting now with the Noordam, passengers can choose between traditional pre-set dining arrangements (with early and main seatings) or flexible service between 5:15 p.m. and 9 p.m. each day. Holland America’s entire fleet will adopt the new rules by the end of 2008. Passengers will need to specify their preferences when booking their cruise. If they pick flexible seating, they can make reservations during the cruise until 4 p.m. daily or simply walk in during dining hours for the first available seating. It will be interesting to see how this works out.
