    Description
    The dinner menu for 27January 1961 aboard MV TJIWANGI, Royal Interocean Lines. Chef de Cuisine: Mok Yuen.
    SignificanceShipboard menus were the most common type of souvenir collected by passengers and these colourful examples illustrate how the Asia-Pacific region was promoted to international visitors travelling on this luxury cruise liner.
    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”.
