Many cruise lines offer prepackaged kosher meals with reliable Hashgacha, comparable to meals served on an airplane or at a hospital.
The biggest issue is that kosher options are limited and no information prior to boarding is given regarding the menu or the stock availability. (Meaning the cruise may run out of kosher meals- which has happened before.)
A typical dinner scenario is as follows: Upon arrival at your assigned dining room, a waiter takes your order and proceeds to warm up the meal. It takes an average of 30-40 minutes for the food to arrive. In the meantime, you are offered cut-up fruits and vegetables, served in non-kosher utensils mingled with the other non-kosher items from the general buffet. For example, the lox is kosher (according to the maître d’) but it is sitting adjacent to the shrimp on the buffet. Finally, your meal arrives double wrapped and impossible to open without a sharp knife or scissors. (The waiter does offer to cut it open for you with his non-kosher knife.) Unfortunately after all that, the meal is often cooked unevenly and is not too appetizing.
At the end of every meal, your waiter will take your order for the upcoming meal. This involves having the maître d’ verify the kosher meal stock availability via computer prior to placing the order. This is usually an additional 30 minute process. Other than the prepackaged kosher meals, one must rely on non-Jews to find out which other products aboard are kosher and have the kosher "sign" on the packaging.
Unhappy, hungry, and desperate for an edible meal, we have seen many people order for example cooked salmon and potatoes, with NO added ingredients, double wrapped in tinfoil. After relying on the leniency of “non-Jewish cooking”, you will be amazed at how great the plain salmon tastes. Despite the waiter’s reassurance that nothing was added to your food, you couldn’t help but notice the taste of salt and butter.
We at KCV are putting an end to this “mishigas” (craziness) and are proud to serve you AFFORDABLE Kosher gourmet meals enhancing your overall cruising experience.
You are paying for the peace of mind of knowing that your religious values are being met to YOUR halachic standards, while enjoying delicious Gourmet Kosher delicacies
