Recommended Posts

Does the Windjammer on Grandeur of the Seas offer British breakfast items such as fried bread, English sausages, baked beans, etc.?  Thanks!

I've seen the baked beans, English bacon, and the black hockey puck things.

Add British sausage AKA Bangers to the list. I have seen them on many cruises, especially on the Independence Of The Seas sailings from Southampton, Great Britain.

The Black hockey puck thing is called Black Pudding

I'm pretty sure that Bellarion only wants to know about the Grandeur of the Seas.

Thanks.  Do they also call it Blood Pudding, or is that a different animal?

I think so, or Blood sausage. There is a white pudding made without blood.

Thank you for your quick responses!  Having the British offerings may just be the tipping point for my British-born husband to say "yes" to this cruise!  Thanks again.

On the Grandeur I have seen pretty much everything but NOT kippers or true fried bread..

Kippers might be difficult.

 

But for fried bread, I would ask in the MDR.

Interesting topic. This will be our first Royal cruise. English born hubby always cobbles together a full English Breakfast (not sure about the fried bread) when we sail on Celebrity.  I'm sure he is hoping for the same on the Adventure, when we sail, next May. He eats relatively healthy the rest of the year, so this is his big treat.

They (RCI) generally have English bacon etc but I assume it might depend on departure port etc...?

Grandeur out of Baltimore has had a mix of bacon on 4 cruises so far.  Some morning English bacon, some mornings American bacon.  This is in the WJ.

I always think US based cooking programmes are going over the top to be sensational when I hear them refer to it as Blood pudding or sausage instead of just Black pudding!

So the most common name used for that delicacy would be Black Pudding?

Yes,again as we are all different it brings dread to many,for many others who have been brought up with it,it is just a normal food item,that is why when I watch.for example,Bizarre Foods on TV,because of the nature of the programme & some of the strange(that's my opinion as we are all different!)  things that he eats I always smile when he seems to stress the word BLOOD when he describes it!

In Ireland they use the Blood or Black interchangeably.

 

The history of said item is just bizarre.

 

This myth goes, that back in the day, when warriors were traveling, they would have oats, but no protein. So they would nick their horse to draw a bit of blood and add that to their oats. This would give it a black appearance, and littler made with blood.
