Cruise Ship FoodThe other day I posted an article entitled Grub on the High Seas.  I also posted photographs on Facebook of the food served in the crew mess, primarily on MSC, Costa and Cunard cruise ships.

A number of crew members sent me photos of some nasty looking stuff (photo left from Cunard).  One cruise passenger who follows me on Facebook asked me to delete a photo because she claimed that a pan of greasy-looking undercooked meat of some kind was causing her extreme mental anguish.

But other crew members commented that food on their cruise ships was fantastic.

One crew member from the Cunard Victoria posted photographs of delicious looking meals with fresh-looking vegetables, soups and cakes & pastries (photo bottom). These photos contrasted sharply with the photo of disgusting gruel served on another Cunard ship.

So I organized his photos in this album on Facebook. You can contrast them with the prior album I posted.

I suppose the food varies a bit from time to time from ship to ship.  That being said, which album best illustrates the food served to you in the crew mess on your ship?

Please leave a comment on our Facebook page.

Or send us a photo of what is served on your ship.

Please feel free to message me confidentially on Facebook or email be privately at jim@cruiselaw.com with your photos if you are afraid that your company will fire you.

THE PICTURES POSTED OF FOOD SERVED CRUISE CREW IS TOTALLY STOMACH CHURNING AND FOR THE MOST PART LOOKS UNEDIBLE. NOTHING SURPRISES ME ABOUT THE TREATMENT OF CREW.

Remember 99% of the crew are from other countries, so what may not look appetizing to us in the US may be normal everyday food to them.

I can see my FAVOURITE dessert in the above photography :O) (happy dance). We had good to great food on the Ruby Princess’ Staff Mess. I would have to ask many times, which was pork and which was not pork based foods. In the crew mess I would not always be able to figure out what kind of food was in the serving dish, unless it was dessert. They often had the best desserts! Lucky fish!

Thankfully, as a staff member, we were also allowed to eat at the guest’s bouffet, which saved the day many a time.
