I had also read that once, in one thread.  I was hoping someone could con firm that

 Or correct it.

I read it on Dave's live review of the Zuiderdam that he's posting now.

He's posting the programs each day and it says it right there $15 for lunch.

Just off Amsterdam Monday and yes, can confirm regular price (pre-Mariner discount) is $15 pp and worth every penny, in our opinion.  In fact, we preferred lunch over PG's breakfast, dinner, and Sel de Mer.  😏

Too bad they increased it from the $10 we paid earlier this year.  A 50% increase is alot, but still worth it IMO ($10 was a great deal).

I agree -- that is a pretty hefty increase.

Don't forget that it is also eligible for the 3-Star Mariner and 4-Star Mariner discounts of 25% and 50%.  A wonderful place to have lunch on sea days.

We also prefer the lunch to breakfast and dinner.  A great break from the Lido.  Be sure to book ahead.  If fills up fast especially on sea days.

It was probably way over due for a price increase.  The PG dinner has gone up several times in price and the lunch never changed.  It had been $10 for a very long time.

 

It’s still one thing I really enjoy and well worth it IMO 🙂

I just booked two lunches today @$15 each.  The $5 increase is consistent with the amount (not percentage) that the other offerings were increased.

Thanks. I was kind of hoping you would say no, and then I'd know HAL had opened up pre-booking PG lunches. 🙂

Yes it was nice when it was $10. Still good for$15. Is it still open only on sea days? Hope some port days too.

  Do you remember when Canaletto was Free? Then $10 now says $19.

PG is only open for lunch on sea days in my experience.

So funny...I think we were on the same cruise.  And I've been telling everybody that my favorite meal was my lunch at PG.  Actually, the only one I would characterize as "delicious."  You, too, must have experienced the cold PG breakfasts.  lol

Strange cruise in the food department.  Quite fun, though, nonetheless.

 

Thumbs up to the filet in the PG for lunch...and the chocolate brownie dessert.  🤗

While I would prefer to pay the previous price of $10, I will still dine at the Pinnacle Grill for lunch. I have not had the experience of breakfast; however, I would continue to avoid dinner at the Pinnacle Grill. 

 

Here is a a link to my review of the Pinnacle Grill’s Lunch while aboard the ms Amsterdam last August. Looking back on my review, paying the now price of $30 for two people (not considering Mariner discounts) to experience that burger, chocolate brownie, and coffee again...I will happily do so.

So you can only reserve for lunch once on board?

This has been our experience.  Have they updated this policy recently, so passengers can make reservations prior to the cruise?

No, you can't book for lunch ahead of time - still has to be done onboard.
