Where Is the Most Caviar Eaten?

The greatest consumption of caviar in the world occurred on the Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2), where passengers of the ship ate about a ton a year. Queen Elizabeth 2 is a cruise ship who made her first journey in 1969 from Southampton, England to New York City, United States.

Her last voyage took place in 2008 after being sold to a Dubai investment company a year prior. The cruiser is 963 feet (293.5 meters) long and 105 feet (32 meters) wide. It has a capacity for 1,791 guests and 921 crew.

The guests not only consumed the largest amount of caviar in the world during the impressive vessel's 30 year history, but also immense amounts of food and drink. More than 150,000 gallons of beverage were consumed and about 70,000 champagne bottles were popped per year. It would take one individual close to two years to consume the breakfast cereal consumed in a single day on Queen Elizabeth 2.

More about Queen Elizabeth 2 Cruise Ship:

  • The Queen Elizabeth 2 crossed the Atlantic ocean at least 800 times between 1969 and 2008.
  • The Queen Elizabeth 2 used more than 4,000 tons of oil within ten days, sailing at a speed of 32.5 knots (37.4 mph or 60 kph).
  • After its sale in 2007, the Queen Elizabeth 2 faced an unknown future as plans to turn the vessel into a floating hotel in Dubai did not materialize.
