Titanic cruise with Titanic food

by Trevor F » Sat Oct 09, 2010 1:46 pm

For those of you with a morbid nature there will be a Titanic memorial cruise on the MS Balmoral in April 2012 following the original North Atlantic route that the Titanic took, with or without an iceberg. Perhaps there will be some ice cream on the dessert menu in the shape of an iceberg.

Some of the original menus will be served on board. http://drewsworld.org/titanic/html/menu.html

Looking at these menus I'm amazed that the Titanic didn't sink through the sheer weight of the food, let alone an iceberg.

Trevor, Hi....

The concept is an excellent one. I do, have a few problems with its execution:

(a) The menus are completely déclassé , appropriate perhaps for before Escoffier came to rule the waves and the French kitchen but not so great for today. I dread seeing the wine list.

(b) I do hope the radar on the ship is working somewhat better than whomever checked the spelling on those menus.
I presume, for example that "findon hoddock" and "lamb callops" and "cabin buscuits" tasted better than their spelling implies. As to the dessert named - "Wine Jelly ---Cocoanut Sandwich", I think I prefer to remain uninformed.

(b) The SS Balmoral is one very ugly ship. Had they sailed with the Queen Elizabeth II, I would have considered the possibility.

Don't worry, the MS Balmoral is unsinkable.
