During our time at sea, we conducted in-depth research to uncover the TOP FIVE ways in which Emmett Lee Dickinson influenced the cruising industry. Number 5, the push for art galleries and auctions on cruise ships, is discussed HERE.
4. The push for around-the-clock nacho buffets on party ships.
Emily Dickinson invented the recipe for Cajun nachos. Emmett Lee Dickinson improved her creation by inventing the nacho bar. He then took the idea one step further and established the first nacho bar on a river boat. Now, 24/7 access to a nacho bar is an industry standard, and the cruise line industry estimates that the inclusion of unlimited nacho bars has increased passenger growth by as much as 47%.
On the back of a wrapper of Parisian baking chocolate Emily Dickinson scribbled the words "Cajun nachos" -- and one can only presume she was experimenting with an added ingredient for a platter of what was her favorite meal!
