Is this the ultimate cruise sensation for chocoholics?

Sea-sickness may be virtually a thing of the past for seasoned cruisers, but for anyone indulging themselves in Holland America's latest onboard treat, they may be left feeling a bit queasy.

The line is reinventing the traditional dessert buffet by introducing a Chocolate Surprise parade on the last gala evening of every cruise.

But, rather than having to make their way to the buffet and wait in line for a sweet treat, guests will be offered Chocolate Surprise bite-sized confections in the main public areas as they enjoy the evening’s entertainment.

After dinner, waiters parade through the Promenade decks with trays of chocolate desserts, passing them out to guests in the bars and lounges as they take in music or enjoy a cocktail.

The nearly hour-long parade is the newest addition to Holland America Line’s growing list of culinary innovations that put an unconventional twist on a traditional event.

“Guests love our culinary events, particularly those featuring chocolate, and we wanted to create something special that enhances their evening activities,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line.

“It’s all about making the most of our exceptional service, and the Chocolate Surprise delights guests in a most delicious and memorable way.”
