Three Michelin-Starred Chef Adds Restaurant To Princess Ship

Three Michelin-Starred Chef Adds Restaurant To Princess Ship

Princess Cruises will introduce French speciality restaurant ‘La Mer’ on to its two newest ships, Sky Princess and Enchanted Princess.

The dining venue was first opened on Majestic Princess, the most recent addition to the line’s fleet in 2017.

La Mer is the creation of three Michelin-starred chef, Emmanuel Renaut, who has previously worked in restaurants that include Claridge’s, Hotel de Crillon and Auberge de l’Eridan.

Renaut is owner and executive chef of the Flocons de Sel restaurant, located in the French Alps village of Megève.

Rai Caluori, Princess Cruises’ executive vice president of guest experience and product development, said: “It’s been an honour to collaborate with Chef Renaut again to develop a new menu for La Mer and showcase his authentically-crafted dishes. He has a passion to deliver unforgettable French dining.”


La Mer will offer casual, French bistro-style dining in the Sky Princess atrium.

Sample dishes on Sky Princess will include:

-Beef filet mignon, sweet onions sauté, red wine jus, hand cut chips

-Red snapper & scallop mousseline, lobster morsels and lemon grass lobster sauce

-Mont Blanc ‘Marron-Myrtilles’ dessert – sweet chestnut, blueberry gel and vanilla cream bavarois

Sky Princess will launch in October this year with a short season in the Mediterranean before heading to the Caribbean.

Enchanted Princess will launch in Southampton in June 2020, similarly sailing an inaugural season in the Mediterranean; further itineraries are yet to be confirmed.

Chef Renaut said: “I’m delighted to introduce La Mer to more Princess Cruises guests. My dishes are designed to satisfy every palate by bringing retro French classics and blending favourite ingredients with fresh and unique touches to make each dish memorable.”

A cover charge of $35 per person will apply.

Recently-announced features that will appear on both Sky Princess and Enchanted Princess include:

Two ‘sky suites’

The largest private balconies ever offered by a cruise line, measuring around the size of half a tennis court with 270-degree panorama views.

Both suites will also offer a private vantage of the ships’ top deck ‘Movie Under the Stars’ screens and have sleeping capacity for five guests

Princess Medallion-enabled

The automated piece of technology is the same size as a 10p piece and will give guests keyless stateroom access and quicker with easier embarkation and disembarkation

Guests can also expect this to include speciality restaurants the Crown Grill Steakhouse and Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria
