Anchor Line’s SS CITY OF ROME – July 4th Menu – 1900 – Russian Caviar

Liners and cruise-ships use to serve Caviar in first class – at least once or twice during each voyage.  That is a perk of the past.  Now the food is superior institutionalized cuisine on most ships.   Like a an okay banquet.  The caviar is gone and so is first class.
