Dine at the chef's table with Princess Cruises

Date Posted: 09 Feb 2009
A trip onboard a Princess Cruises ship could be the ideal way for a travellers to brush up on their culinary credentials.

Passengers on the Caribbean Princess can pay $75 each to dine at the chef's table and witness master chef Alfredo Marzi flambeing roasted tenderloin, veal and pork in cognac.

Mr Marzi claims that the culinary experience is a sell-out on each cruise.

He told the Boston Globe: "We have to make it special, to exceed our guests' expectations.

"It's one of the reasons our food costs [were] up 18-20 percent in 2008."

According to the newspaper, the Chef's Table programme consists of a champagne reception for as many as ten people, along with king crab cocktail and Bloody Mary sorbet. It is offered on most of Princess' ships.

The multicourse meal with paired wines then follows.

Princess Cruises offers 90 unique cruise itineraries to more than 270 global destinations.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
