Mixology Mastered Aboard Holland America Line's Koningsdam

Friends, the Bloody Mary pictured here is one of the tastiest and most innovative I've ever been served on land or at sea. Poolside on Holland America Line's Koningsdam, the spicy Bloody Mary included a shrimp, three olives with a different stuffing in each, a pearl onion, lemon wedge, and a celery stick in a tall glass rimmed with celery salt. From what I was told, while sailing in Alaska, the Bloody Mary on Holland America's ships comes with a crap claw instead of a shrimp.

Every cocktail I enjoyed on Koningsdam last week was well prepared and, additionally, the drinks were reasonably priced. Fellow cruisers mentioned how pleased they were that mixed drinks, fruity Island cocktails, wine, and even specialty coffees and teas on Koningsdam were priced lower than those found on the ship of another cruise line they recently sailed with.

CHEERS to Holland America!
