Specialty of Cunard:  Onion Soup Gratinée Lyonnaise  for breakfast… 

During the heyday of Trans-Atlantic service, Cunard Line’s extensive fleet of ships, from the RMS Queen Mary to the RMS Caronia, provided extensive breakfast offerings in all classes.  We’ve included first, cabin and tourist class breakfast menus.  These menus are for liner voyages (New York to Europe) and not cruises.  On cruises there would be only one class. Just first. With much more limited accommodations.

Here is a cruise menu aboard the RMS Caronia in 1960.  On an earlier cruise, a passenger complained that  Onion Soup Gratinée Lyonnaise was not served for breakfast.  Cunard Line’s head steward then ordered all first class menus – aboard all ships – to include the specialty.  You can see it listed on the first class menus at the top.
