Running a cruise ship be it on a river or sea means a lot of thought has to go into it. So many different aspects that need to taken into consideration for continued success. From good hygiene to good profit. One of the main factors that make for a successful package is having the right food. A menu that will cater to different people and age groups. It has to also be approved by the health department. Having a variety is always best. Let’s look at a few different options.
From welcome drinks to water, plenty of liquids is a must. Stock up on fresh water. Organise a team to take care of all the beverages. Keep count and prepare for the number of passages expected. Compiling a drinks menu will make matters simple. The customers will know what’s available, making service easier. Depending on the weather, the number of warm drinks to cold will have to be decided on. On an exotic cruise, people will look for fancy options. Be ready to serve up some colourful concoctions.
The first meal of the day is usually the biggest for most. Folks wake up hungry looking for scrumptious options. It would be great or organise a full breakfast or a buffet depending on your package. An mix of options like what a local rooftop restaurant Bangkok would offer would be excellent. From cereals, crepes, fried meats, baked goods and more. Top them all off with coffee, teas in different flavours, juices, local flavoured coconut water and soy milk. Since its a buffet have plenty and don’t limit the menu.
Lunch and dinner
For the main meals it would be nice to section off areas and have specialty meals. Have chefs cool up certain options upon request. An Indian chapatti corner can have the breads made to order, a sushi corner and an Italian chef preparing Spaghetti alle vongole like in an Italian restaurant. Such a display will give a great vibe to the dining area. The passengers will also appreciate the freshly prepared meals.
When it comes to the sweet corner we suggest that you don’t be shy. Thai has so many great sweet treats that will evoke hunger and excitement in all. Have a great spread of warm and sweet and icy cold treats. With kids on board you won’t have to worry about left overs.
