    As officers steward we had to take the menu to the 12 to 4 watch for their lunch which was served up for them at 7 bells.
    Most ordered but very few ever turned up.
    Great stuff, the other steward and myself would go to the main galley at noon to see what was ready for them but not eaten.
    We fed like lords on all the very best.
    One of the perks of our position along with the four hours per day overtime thanks to 'Chuckles' Charnley.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    a bit surprised at the comments regarding eating through so many courses - and in particular south africans being big eaters - which indeed we are ! however on all the cruises i have been on - and in discussion with people who did liner voyages - we use to have early breakfast - then another small bite at around 11 - then lunch - then afternoon teas - then supper / dinner and then a midnight buffet - the conclusion - when at sea no matter how much one eats - you seem to consume more food - then would be the case at home ! salt air ? not sure but cruising or in the case of the liner voyages - several courses were the norm

    Believe me mate they could eat, would be waiting at the saloon door for it to open.
    I have never seen so many courses put down in such a short time.
    But as you say, may be the salt air.

    But on cruise now it is quite common to see overindulgence by some.
    Last year on a Japan cruise I saw one lady eat 14 fried eggs for breakfast.
