Princess Cruises food courts Stone

Tara Harrison

Princess Cruises has partnered with Australian celebrity chef Curtis Stone to design meals for its 18 ships.

Stone will develop menu items in the main dining rooms labelled as ‘Crafted by Curtis’, design a restaurant concept as well as a Chef’s Table curated by the man himself.

“This is an exciting step for Princess and sure to delight our guests since Chef Stone also believes that great meals bring people together to create lifelong memories, much like travel,” Princess Cruises president Jan Swartz said.

“Since I travel often, I know that discovering delicious food and sharing a great meal can create some of the most memorable moments and I’ve designed my restaurants with this in mind,” Stone said.

Australians will get to taste the new offering in the main dining room on Golden Princess in October with the branding to roll out by the end of 2015. Sun Princess will be the first ship to Australia with the restaurant on board, while the Chef’s Table will be introduced early next year.

“This partnership will appeal to Princess guests around the world and most certainly to those enjoying Australia-based cruises since Chef Stone hails from Australia and is incredibly popular in his homeland,” Swartz said.

The chef partnership is part of Princess’ new brand ‘come back new’.

It’s important to me that guests have the experience that I would want and food that I’d be thrilled to eat myself, at sea or anywhere else in the world,” Stone said.
