Cutting Rudi's Ribbon

When Holland America's Nieuw Statendam debuted last week, it came with a special restaurant - so special the line even had a ribbon cutting for it.

Nieuw Statendam is the first of Holland America's ships to have a dedicated space for Rudi's Sel de Mer. The first Sel de Mer debuted as a pop-up restaurant when Koningsdam debuted in 2016. It was such a runaway hit with passengers, Holland America decided to create pop-ups of the premium restaurant fleetwide.

The complete story appeared in the December 13 issue of Cruise News Daily.
