The best soup I ever tasted in my whole life wasn't on a ship, it was in the canteen at Thyssen Nordseewerke in Emden, where I was working on a P+O new build.
The soup in question was Chile con carne soup, and it was delicious, and cost 1 Mark.
A close second was in the Chainbridge Hotel outside Pembroke when I was working on one of Rowbotham's. It was French onion soup, almost as delicious as the first.
Nothing I've tasted before or since comes close.

I'm with you on that Pat, HDW Hamburg canteen used to do a bowl of broth with dimplings and bread for one mark in the Seventies, it was about two litres and was a good day's feed!

Thought I had arrived in a different world on my first trip. Silver service, Chinese stewards and more food than I thought possible in the 1950's. With the odd exception I allways thought the food on BF and Glen ships were excellent. However ...brown Windsor soup followed by boiled mutton, not to mention corned silverside of beef, and those cheese sandwiches on the bridge all dry and curled at the edges were definately the exception.
