Cruise ship menu

Rate this Entry
Here are some of the dinner meals I ate recently on a 12 day New England and Canada cruise on the Cunard Queen Mary 2. I don't recall all the desserts. Some nights I got a 2nd appetizer instead of a salad. The food was well prepared. The menu was innovative although not every dish was exceptional. This was a great time for a foodie to try a lot of different items.

The next to last day we got a tour of the galley. It was quite impressive. The kitchen was spotless. They have 160 chef/cooks plus an additional 85 kitchen crew/cleaners.
