I think breakfast was the best, but then there was that great meal of spaghetti and pizza we had for dinner on rifle qual day. I still remember it! After boot camp it got better. Great omelets, stuffed with just about everything.
I think it is true that many of the cooks on cruise ships - especially at the buffets - use the same basic recipes and techniques used by military cooks. I am quite sure that many of the Filipino cooks on cruise ships are former U.S. Navy cooks.
