Last year I had the opportunity to visit the galley on the Regal Princess. I enjoy looking behind the scenes on cruise ships and so when I spotted the tour in the daily Princess Patter as part of a culinary demonstration I was interested to see what a cruise ship kitchen actually looks like.
Let me tell you, it’s huge… and spotlessly clean!
The tour allowed us to walk through the galley of one of the main dining rooms. Kitchen staff had prepared lots of different examples of how they cook and present potatoes for your cruise ship meals (which was equally surprising as it was random!).
The galley tour was at the end of a culinary demonstration in the Princess Theatre. We decided to skip the majority of the demonstration and just caught the end of it before joining the tour. Although we were not in the galley for very long, we did find it interesting to go behind the scenes of a cruise ship kitchen. It showed the amount of space, equipment and ovens it takes to keep all of the hungry cruise ship passengers fed and watered. I do take my hat off to all of the cruise ship kitchen staff who work tirelessly to ensure meal times runs so smoothly.
