7 Great Thanksgiving Recipes from Cruise Lines

by Kristen O'Neal | November 15, 2016

Whether you are hosting or just tasked with bringing a side or dessert to a Thanksgiving gathering, it's easy to get stuck in a rut and make the same dishes every year. Fortunately, cruise line chefs have some creative takes on holiday favorites, designed to help passengers feel at home. Best of all, since cruise ships avoid the family-style, self service that Americans tend toward at Thanksgiving in favor of plated meals, you'll be more likely to serve up a sophisticated presentation with some of these recipes than with those you'll find elsewhere. 

We reached out to a variety of lines to get their recipes for the best dishes served on their ships at the holiday. Here are our favorites, from a hearty pumpkin soup to a bread pudding that's perfect for this autumnal dinner.
