LINER MENUS - THEN AND NOW

LINER DINNER MENUS 
1958 & 52 years later

Just a little distraction from the usual reviews today as we give you the chance to compare the dinner menus from two great liners: the MV Britannic and the current Queen Mary 11. You will see from the menus that while Chocolate and Vanilla ice cream has survived, or maybe evolved, and is till with us, there are not that many similarities.

Just to set you straight, the Britannia Restaurant is on the current ship. The menu from the Britannic is below (click to enlarge)

Like the Titanic, the MV Britannic, then the largest of her class, was built in Belfast but had a much more routine life on the ocean waves. The liner served on the North Atlantic route and also on the Caribbean from 1930 to 1960. She also did duty as a troop carrier during the war.
