A merchant shipper recorded on a cargo ship what it's like to eat every day at sea.

During the holidays, the canteen is a primary source of community and entertainment for workers.
In a YouTube video, a merchant shipper gave an insight into what it's like to live on a cargo ship for months.
In the video released in October 2020, Second Officer Bryan Boyle shows what meals look like on board a Maersk cargo ship.
Boyle previously told Insider that canteen meals are an important source of community for the crew. During Thanksgiving, Boyle said, crew members were offered a series of celebratory meals and gathered to watch a football game in the lounge with a satellite TV. Although seafarers cannot take a day off at sea on holidays like Christmas and New Year, Boyle says most shipping companies try to make the days special, and some will even decorate ships for the holidays.

"I remember having a few unique experiences, like singing and making music together at Christmas, as one of the able-bodied sailors on board was a skilled harmonica player," Boyle told Insider. “Another time we were anchored in Dubai on New Year's Eve, surrounded by many ships. We counted down to the New Year, and then many of the ships began blowing their whistles in celebration as fireworks were launched from the shore ahead of us."
Usually there are two mess halls on a ship - one for the officers and one for the crew. Boyle said the officers' canteen seats about 10 people, while the crew's can seat up to 13 at a time.
The video focuses on the officers' canteen. Every day the workers receive a daily menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

While the menu changes from day to day, there are some constants. For breakfast, the crew can choose from rotating breakfast items like French toast and smoked salmon, or browse a breakfast bar with fruit and pastries and eggs cooked to order. In the video, a ship's cook scoops Boyle's eggs onto a griddle and lights a bacon omelette.

Similarly, a salad bar is always offered to officers at lunch and dinner, in addition to menus such as seafood, soup, and sandwiches. Each meal includes vegetable, fruit and starch options on the menu. Boyle told Insider that menu options often change depending on the destination and crew composition. It is not uncommon to try foreign cuisines while traveling.
Boyle's video also shows footage of the ship's pantry and its slop chest, a shop on the ship where workers can buy supplies such as cigarettes, candy, clothes and soda.
