Holland America Line announced the opening of Morimoto By Sea, a new dining experience aboard Nieuw Amsterdam, on 16DEC 2023, the first stand-alone restaurant at sea for Chef Masaharu Morimoto.
The Asian-inspired restaurant will offer dishes and beverages from Chef Morimoto, the cruise line's "Fresh Fish Ambassador."
Morimoto By Sea will be located adjacent to the Tamarind restaurant on the Observation Deck. The menu also will include a selection of beef, chicken, vegetarian and vegan options. Guests can make reservations on Holland America Line's Navigator App or onboard. The restaurant carries a cover charge of USD $55 plus an additional 18% gratuity.
