Ah, cruise ship food. Still the number one topic of discussion, dissection and, indeed, digestion, on any vessel at sea. Whether we’re talking about the three star ships or the sublime, six star exclusive resorts, the on board obsession with food- from dawn till dusk and beyond- continues to dominate our voyages.
Of course, it’s never simply about actual taste. Presentation, service and room ambiance are just as much ingredients of any shipboard meal as the food itself. Each is an ingredient in what is- hopefully- a series of elegant repasts on an ocean, where sea air naturally sharpens the appetite to perfection.
Bountiful breakfasts. Languid lunches. Delicious dinners, even mouth watering midnight snacks. All are potential high points in cruising’s global pantheon of taste. But it is always that sensational first sight of your meal order that really sets the anticipation running like tap water.
With that in mind, here’s some foodie photographs from on board different ships. Stuff that looked so good, it begged to be immortalised in film. Stuff that looked too good to be eaten until it had been snapped.
Well, thanks to that wonderful invention called the digital camera, now you can have your cake and eat it, too.
