Lido Restaurant
For the first 48 hours of each cruise, guests dining in the Lido Restaurant will enjoy a full service buffet, where our trained and attentive staff will serve all dishes. Starting on the third day of each cruise, the Lido will convert to a self-service buffet where guests may serve themselves. We've found that this change in service has had a proven effect in greatly reducing illness onboard, while providing guests with the convenience and variety of Holland America Line's exceptional buffet.
