Food on Cruise Ships, 1st or 2nd seating, freestyle cruising and more

Christian Bellingrath cruised 27 times in the past eight years on a wide variety of cruise ships and he will share his experience about the different kinds of food you can find on ships. This chapter will be completed soon.

Generally speaking, the cruise on cruise ships is very comparable to restaurants on land, in many instances much better. They do not have much storage space. Therefore on cruise ships they cannot bring frozen ready to bake breads and rolls, cake, etc. The rolls are made fresh every morning, the same is valid for bread. I have visited the galley of several cruise ships and talked to the chefs and I have seen the great job they are doing. But please do not try to compare apples with oranges. Do not try to compare Carnival to a 5-star restaurant or the Queen Mary to Mac Donalds, that does not work.

I am still working on my website and please understand it takes a lot of time, therefore this page is not finished, it should be finished at the end of summer. If you have questions until then, please send me an e-mail and I will give you an answer.
