RMS Mauretania 1933
The final dinner of any cruise was always a big celebration and this 1933 menu shows that the RMS Mauretania certainly pushed the boat out to mark the occasion. The front cover is a lovely illustration of passengers making toasts to each other and joining in the general merriment. The interior menu is impressive in the sheer amount of food that was on offer. The Cunard-owned RMS Mauretania was one of the most luxurious vessels of its time with wood paneling, marble and tapestries in the first class areas and a French-style multi-level dining saloon. It was also one of the first ships to install elevators. Designed as an “ocean greyhound” to speed across the Atlantic between England and New York, it was in service for 28 years before being scrapped in 1934.
