Holland America Line is launching a new and exclusive dining experience on the 2,100-guest Nieuw Amsterdam; ‘Morimoto By Sea’ will open on December 16, 2023.

The restaurant has been developed by Chef Masaharu Morimoto, the cruise line’s ‘Fresh Fish Ambassador’.

It will offer Asian-inspired dishes and beverages, to reflect Holland America Line’s new ‘global fresh fish programme’, such as sushi, tempura calamari salad, crispy fried whole market fresh fish and lobster pad Thai.

The menu will also include a selection of beef, chicken, vegetarian and vegan options.

Morimoto By Sea will be the newest addition to Chef Morimoto’s list of worldwide restaurants and his first on a cruise ship.

He specialises in Japanese cuisine and was previously head chef at Nobu. He appears regularly on both Japanese and US TV.

The restaurant will open on Nieuw Amsterdam during the ship’s winter Caribbean programme.
