Several of the scientists on the ship are from the US and were obviously not able to make it home for Thanksgiving. This is a time when many of us would go home to visit family and have a big meal with our loved ones. The chefs on board decided to surprise us with a big turkey and ham dinner on a night that could have been a normal Thursday November 22nd. The dinner included turkey, ham, pumpkin soup, stuffing, potatoes and much more. Everyone (not just the Americans) made sure to keep with the tradition of eating a lot of food and we were all thankful for the chefs and stewards on board the Golden Shadow.
