    Menu in the shape of a fan from MS TJIWANGI, Royal Interocean Line, for Wednesday 28 February 1973.
    SignificanceShip menus became important souvenirs for passengers travelling aboard. They were often signed by other passengers and usually featured decorative covers and were mementos of elaborate meals served.
    HistoryThe MV TJIWANGI was launched in 1950 as a smaller style luxury liner. In her first 10 years the TJIWANGI operated on the Dutch Indies to Hong Kong Service. In 1960 she was rerouted to undertake the Australia, Hong Kong to Japan service. The TJIWANGI was focused on traditional cruising with the priority being on passengers comfort, service, and as this menu illustrates, good food. She became known with her sister ship the TJILUWAH, as “Elegant White Yachts”.
