British passengers on Crown Princess will feel right at home this year with curry nights, fish and chips available every lunchtime and a roast with all the trimmings on Sundays.
They will also be offered English bangers, back bacon and black pudding at breakfast as well as pub lunches including Lancashire hotpot, Cornish pasties and cottage pie.
The traditional food will all be swilled down with British-brand tea, such as Twinings, available 24 hours a day in the restaurants or via room service.
The options will be introduced for the ship, based in Southampton this spring and summer, after the line asked British guests about their favourite foods. The dishes will be offered at no extra charge alongside Princess’s international menu.
Tony Roberts, the line’s vice president for UK and Europe, said: ‘We’re pleased to introduce these little touches so guests can enjoy some of their usual home comforts on board while still making the most of their getaway at sea. We’re renowned for our high standard of dining and will continue to offer extensive international menu selections, as well as our British favourites, so there’s something to suit all tastes and preferences.’
Other little touches include afternoon tea on sea days and condiments and spreads including Branston pickle, HP Sauce and Marmite. Bars will offer a wider selection of British beers and ales. There will even be Pimms and strawberries served during Wimbledon fortnight.
Crown Princess will sail to the Mediterranean and northern Europe from April to September 2017 on seven and 14-night cruises.
