The hours for meals at sea vary with the line and vessel. Breakfast is usually served at from eight to nine o'clock ; luncheon, from one to two o'clock, and dinner at seven P. M. Where there is a second seating these hours are apt to vary.

Times for meals are usually posted in the staterooms or the stewards will be glad to inform the passengers. Bouillon and crackers are served on deck and in the companionways, and tea is served at four o'clock.

On some lines it is possible to get a supper at nine o'clock in the evening, and on other lines there is a buffet supper in the smoking room in the evening, which is apt to be elaborate.

Passengers hungry at any time can always obtain something on application to the steward; no one need ever go hungry at sea. The sea air is so invigorating that the steamship companies expect to furnish very full meals, except for those who are physically incapacitated on account of seasickness.
