The breakfast buffet always included fruit, scrambled eggs, bacon and/or sausage, yogurt, a selection of cheeses and cold cuts, pastries, and several different types of bread. Pancakes, French toast, and eggs to order were available from the menu.
The buffet lunch included a delicious variety of cold salads, greens, and fresh vegetables such as tomatoes, beets, and cucumbers. The luncheon menu always had a selection of soups, a hot main course, and dessert. Many days I had a huge luncheon salad and dessert, while my mother loved the hot soup and homemade bread.
We ordered dinner from a menu, and each evening there was a selection of at least two appetizers, soups, main courses, and desserts. Passengers could also always request a grilled chicken breast, steak, or Caesar salad for dinner. Many of the dinners (and sometimes the lunches) featured local specialties from Hungary, Austria, or Germany. Dinner was usually served about 7:00 and lasted about two hours, as passengers enjoyed the congenial atmosphere and delicous food.
