SANTA CLARITA — Celebrity chef Curtis Stone was on hand for the grand opening of SHARE by Curtis Stone, his first restaurant at sea.
SHARE is now available aboard Ruby Princess and Emerald Princess, and soon will debut aboard Sun Princess in Stone’s native Australia in April. A US$39 per person cover charge applies.
Princess Cruises’ partnership with Chef Stone is part of the cruise line’s US$450 million multi-year product innovation and cruise ship renovation ‘Come Back New Promise’ campaign launched this week. The partnership includes ‘Crafted by Curtis’ menu items available in the main dining rooms fleetwide. Curtis Stone’s Chef’s Table experience will debut in SHARE venues in spring 2016.
According to Princess, the SHARE dining experience “encourages connecting with family, friends and other cruisers by offering intriguing dishes served family style”. The menu features dishes such as a Charcuterie starter course; Butter Poached Lobster with Caramelized Endive; Twice Cooked Duck Leg with Fennel, Bacon jus and Parmesan Crumb; Tagliatelle with Roasted Alaskan Crab, Chili and Parsley; and Potato Gratin with Truffles and Cream.
