Holland America Line Review

When packing your suitcase for your upcoming cruise vacation, please keep in mind the dress code for the ms Ryndam. Holland America Line wants you to be comfortable with some additional clothing for formal nights.

During the day while you are exploring the ship or in port experiencing the different cultures, feel free to wear comfortable clothes. This would include sports wear, swimsuits, pants, shorts, sun dresses to name a few. The only requirement Holland America has, is if you are using the pool on the cruise ship to wear a cover up while going from your stateroom to the pool and back.

Each night when your stateroom is cleaned you will be left with an upcoming itinerary for the next night’s dinner wear. This will inform you whether or not the requirements will be casual, informal or formal/elegant. Please have something packed for each of these nights, as follows:

Casual – Men can wear a polo shirt and slacks, while women should wear a sun dress if they desire.

Informal – Mean should wear a button down shirt. A tie and jacket are option, but not required. Women should wear a pants suit or dress for this night.

Formal – Men should wear a suit with a tie or tuxedo, whichever they prefer. Women should wear a cocktail dress or gown. On average there are 2 formal nights per 7 day cruise.
