Holland America Line’s elegant afternoon tea is now even more special. The cruise line has introduced a new Royal Dutch Tea experience in the dining room on all sea days. The popular tea will continue to be free of charge.

“Whether a tea connoisseur or a novice, guests will enjoy the upgraded offering, which gives a nod to our Dutch legacy of more than 150 years of sailing,” Michael Stendebach, vice president of food, beverage and rooms division for Holland America Line, said in a news release.

Royal Dutch Tea will replace the existing afternoon experience with enhanced service featuring sweet and savory options that highlight the brand’s Dutch heritage.

Royal Dutch Tea also will include many of the traditional bites and teas in which Holland America Line guests love to indulge.

“Our guests are avid enthusiasts of the afternoon tea tradition, and we are excited to combine this longstanding service on sea days with our rich Dutch heritage,” Stendebach said.
