What Extra " Food" Do You Take On Board?

Recommended Posts

Hi...just a fun question...I am being curious ( nosy) :D As we know there is food aplenty on board a cruise ship but is there any food/snack/chocolate etc that you just can't do without....mine is Hills Digestive Biscuits and lemon cordial/squash to add to plain water?

I'll bring some snacks to have on the plane and stuff for my toddler, but I don't plan to bring food specifically to eat on the ship. I usually travel with peanut m&ms and fruit leathers.

Proper tea bags and Cravendale filtered milk which tastes like proper milk but lasts for a reasonable time. The "straws" of milk they put on ships these days just don't cut it. Few sugar lumps too.

Need to have decaf stuff so always take some Yorkshire decaf teabags for a proper brew or sometimes the M&S ones.

 

Apart from that we sometimes take loads of chocolates with us as we tend to save the ones left from Christmas or Easter and pig out on the ship ;-)

 

Oh, have always taken a 3 litre box of vino but no more as we will be good and abide by the new rules

 

Not long for us to go now ---- Oceana is on her way to Malta to pick us up !!!

Ginger. Special choccies at Christmas. A few mince pies at Christmas. A few savoury snacks (dates, nut selection, etc) on longer cruises with many sea days. Things I can’t usually get onboard. That’s about all. We mostly cruise at Christmas.

 

Oh and any ‘Betty's Rascals’ that are left over from our travelling down South, as they make great packed lunches at European ports...

Occasionally take olives and cured meats, plus little savoury biscuits, for balcony nibbles. Not quite the same without a glass of chilled vino though, so the recent carry-on restrictions may curtail this pleasant activity

Coffee mate is a must for me not too keen on the UHT packets supplied

(I know fresh milk is available but even at home I prefer the whitener)plus Extra Special Cookies to go with the coffee

This is turning out to be interesting...snackies that we can't just do without especially the snackies that go with an evening tipple or possibly an anytime of day tipple :D

Fruit squash / Touch of Fruit / Coca Cola

Pringles

Cereal bars

Toblerone for the crew (they can't get enough of it, irrespective of the cruise line)

Have never taken or even thought of doing so in the past but might consider in future in light of excellent previous ideas/posts! 😀

Fresh ground coffee bags and coffee mate - can't stand the coffee on board.

Boiled sweets to suck in case we get “cabin cough”. Until last year P&O used to provide them in the cabin on a little silver tray.

We had them in August, have they stopped doing them?
