Happy Thanksgiving, PCMC members! We hope you are enjoying this holiday with food, family, and friends. To celebrate, here is a menu for Thanksgiving in 1966 aboard the S.S. Cristobal. The menu features American classics like roasted turkey and cranberry sauce, as well as regionally influenced dishes such as “Caribbean style” baked ham and some dishes that we found peculiar– like green turtle soup!
Did you ever have a holiday dinner on a cruise ship while living in the Canal Zone? What were your Thanksgiving traditions in the Canal Zone? Have any of those traditions continued since moving away from the Canal Zone?
