Farewell Dinner Menus - Steamships and Ocean Liners
We were all invited to diner, prepared by the chefs of this magnificent steamer. A sumptuous dinner with all the delicacies of the season on hand. Elegance of the dinner was enhanced by a wide array of liquors and wine. This would be our last dinner on board the ocean liner as we land in New York tomorrow morning. A grand affair indeed!
