Fresh Herbs Grown on Holland America Line

Holland America Line is partnering with award-winning microgreen specialist Koppert Cress to grow fresh ingredients onboard the line’s newbuild, ms Koningsdam. The Koppert Cress partnership will enable guests to indulge in fresh microgreens grown onboard in the Culinary Arts Center while enjoying a farm-to-table-style menu for dinner.

The ingredients will be on display in a glass-enclosed growing area in the Culinary Arts Center, which also will serve as a dinner venue on Koningsdam. Dinner in the Culinary Arts Center restaurant will provide an immersive farm-to-table experience where chefs prepare simple, artisanal dishes in the show kitchen. Each course will be enjoyed as it’s freshly prepared, with some ingredients harvested by the ship’s chefs from the Koppert Cress growing area just before being served.


Once sown, the seedlings will grow for up to two weeks and then get snipped in their prime for use during dinner in the Culinary Arts Center. The microgreens have distinct flavours like garlic, mustard and liquorice, which will enhance the taste of each dish served.

Based in the Netherlands with branches all over the world, Koppert Cress is the premier grower of living microgreens and other edible specialties. The company specialises is cresses — the seedlings of unique plants — that are procured from around the globe, each with its own unique taste, aroma, texture and appearance.
