THE burger war is heating up!

Just days after Holland America Line claimed “Every day is National Burger Day” on its ships, Carnival Cruise Line launched into action and made the largest hamburger at sea.

All in the name of the United States’ National Burger Day on 28 May, the burger-off began when Orlando Ashford, HAL president, touted the line’s burgers as “the best at sea”.

HAL serves more than 4,000 burgers during a week-long cruise and Carnival was quick to point out it serves around 1,000 burgers per day on each ship, adding up to more than five million burgers a year.

Carnival’s gargantuan celebration was modelled after the offerings at Guy’s Burger Joint, which features on 14 of the line’s ships.

The burger (pictured) packed 91kg of meat and 23kg of cheese and toppings and the bun used 23kg of flour.
