Celebrity chefs at sea

With the rise in popularity of cooking shows on TV, we're all hungry for more when it comes to celebrity chefs. Typically found in great cities across the world and on your television, now some of the greatest celeb chefs can also be found on board cruise liners. We tell you where to find the best on board food.

Celebrity Fine Dining On Board!

There has never been a more opportune time to combine celeb dining and travel. Whereas eating at their restaurants on land may be a costly outing, on board restaurants are included in the total price of the cruise. Essentially this dining experience is absolutely free.

Guy’s Diner

If you like the idea of casual dining with all of the flavour and care of something fancier, try fast food with a difference at Guy's Diner on board Carnival Cruise ships. Handcrafted burgers and french fries created in a 1950's style roadside diner, the menu was created by the Food Network's Guy Fieri. Guy is known for his boldly flavoured food. A burger done well can be absolutely delicious.

Fusion food more your style?

Then you must try Nobuyuki 'Nobu' Matsuhisa's restaurant, a renowned chef specialising in Japanese-Peruvian cuisine. His restaurants on-board Crystal Cruises boast sushi, sashimi, cevice, as well as other Japanese delicacies in the Silk Road restaurant and separate Sushi bar.

Celebrities Everywhere!

P&O Cruises recently launched an assault on the celebrity restaurant world – five award winning world-class chefs each offering their own area of expertise. Including Olly Smith, wine expert; patissier Eric Lanlard; Michelin starred spice expert Atul Kocchar and chefs' James Martin and Marco Pierre White. There are loads of delicious options to choose from. You can even cook your own food in their presence at one of the Cookery Clubs held on the ships: something to write home about!


Jamie’s Rustic Cruise

Enjoy Jamie Oliver's rustic indulgence on board Royal Caribbean Cruise Line at his Jamie's Italian brand of eateries. Using the freshest ingredients, the menu has been put together by Jamie himself and offers such delicious delights as British lamb lollipops and rib-eye steak. Delicious!
