    Description
    The most common type of souvenir collected by passengers when they travel on a passenger liner or on a cruising holiday is the shipboard menu. Socialising with fellow passengers at the evening meal in the dining room is an integral part of the experience. We have large numbers of menus in the museum collection dating from the 1890s. They generally feature an illustration, photograph or design reflecting the key attributes of the ship, the ports or countries visited during the journey.
