    Holland America Line has announced a sweet collaboration with Lindt & Sprüngli (USA), the makers of Lindor truffles and the number one premium chocolate brand in the US.

    A Premium Partnership at Sea

    Two iconic brands steeped in rich European heritage, Holland America Line and Lindt are united by a passion to create exceptional, carefully crafted experiences aboard Holland America’s global fleet.

    “Holland America Line’s dedication to extraordinary service mirrors the meticulous craftsmanship behind Lindt chocolate, where the fusion of the finest ingredients creates an unparalleled indulgent experience,” stated Melissa Mendoza, vice president of marketing at Lindt & Sprüngli (USA).

    “The partnership between Holland America Line and Lindt presents a remarkable chance for the Lindt LINDOR brand to connect with travellers passionate about cuisine and attract a new generation of LINDOR fans with unforgettable brand moments.”

    Onboard Indulgent Moments

    With Holland America Line, every journey is an opportunity to create lasting memories. As night falls on Gala Night, guests can retreat to the comfort of their cabin and be greeted by the “Sweet Dreams” turndown service, featuring the irresistibly smooth Lindt LINDOR milk chocolate truffles or Sea Salt milk chocolate truffles once per cruise.

    Guests can savour the journey on board and indulge in special moments with Lindt chocolate desserts, including a signature tulip-shaped Lindt chocolate mousse cake. Tulips are an enduring Dutch symbol and reflective of Holland America Line’s founding in the Netherlands. The tulip-shaped Lindt chocolate mousse cake is already aboard Rotterdam on its Dutch Day dinner menu in the Dining Room and will be fleetwide as of August 2024.

    Beginning summer 2024, guests will be able to enjoy a Lindt Sundae including vanilla ice cream topped with a custom-made Lindt chocolate sauce, as well as Lindt chocolate tulips one night per cruise in the Dining Room on the Dutch Day dinner menu.

    In July 2024 – just in time for World Chocolate Day – Holland America Line will unveil a unique and irresistible Lindt Flourless Chocolate Cake collaborated in partnership with Lindt’s Master Chocolatier, Ann Czaja. The cake will be available on the Dining Room menu for cruises over seven days and will be featured during its indulgent ‘Cake Me Away’ program, which is a new onboard dessert extravaganza with more than 22 tantalising five-layer cakes in 16 decadent flavours on display.

    “We’re thrilled to align ourselves with Lindt, a globally beloved brand and one of the world’s leading chocolatiers, to launch an initiative that represents our deep connection to Europe and elevates the culinary experience on board,” said Michael Stendebach, vice president of food, beverage and rooms division for Holland America Line.

    “We hope our guests take the opportunity to indulge in all the special moments this partnership offers.”
