So much food!

Hi, again! You've seen my pictures from the Oosterdam -- even the behind the scenes ones from the kitchen! Isn't it incredible? Hard to believe there's more than 90 chefs onboard one ship alone. But you've got to have a lot of people feeding thousands of passengers onboard. So, how much food is loaded week by week onboard an average 7 night cruise?

 25,000 pounds of beef 

10,000 pounds of chicken

350 pounds of crab

2,100 pounds of lobster

25,000 pounds of fresh vegetables

15,000 pounds of potatoes

20,000 pounds of fresh fruit

3,500 gallons of milk

10,000 dozen eggs

6,000 pounds of sugar

4,000 pounds of rice

2,500 pounds of coffee

2,000 pounds  of cookies

3,000 tea bags

10,000 bottles/cans of beer

...and the list goes on and on. No wonder there's more than 90 chefs onboard. And tons more bartenders, too. One things for sure -- you won't go hungry :)
