The year begins with exciting news for Cunard guests as Cunard brings back an exclusive series of Le Gavroche residencies at sea, with the two Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux bringing his iconic London restaurant to guests onboard Queen Anne and Queen Mary 2, overseeing four Le Gavroche residencies across four exciting Fjords voyages in 2024.
The exclusive series will be delivered in partnership with the Norwegian Seafood Council and begins with Le Gavroche at The Verandah aboard Cunard’s flagship Queen Mary 2 for her sailing to Hardangerfjord on 2 June.
The five-night residency will cater for 60 diners each evening, showcasing a beautiful variety of Michel’s signature seafood specialties and elevated culinary classics.
Guests will be treated to a five-course tasting menu infused with all the flavours of the sea, elegantly finessed using the very best produce. A second residency will be hosted aboard Queen Mary 2 for her Hamburg roundtrip Fjords voyage on 6 August.
Michel will also treat the guests to another intimate, five-night takeover with Le Gavroche at Sir Samuel’s on board Cunard’s newest ship Queen Anne as she departs for Stavanger in Norway on 11 August.
The Le Gavroche custodian will complete his quartet of takeovers with the Norwegian residency on Queen Anne on 1 September as she sails to Haugesund.
During these voyages, Michel will also appear as an Insight Speaker in the Royal Court Theatre, entertaining guests with stories from his illustrious 40-plus-year career in the hospitality industry.
The news follows August’s announcement that Michel will be creating an exclusive gala menu for Queen Anne’s Queens Grill and Princess Grill restaurants, as well as a new Golden Lion menu full of refined pub favourites for Cunard’s newest ship.
Katie McAlister, President of Cunard, said: “We are incredibly honoured to exclusively host Le Gavroche at sea and continue our exciting partnership with Michel Roux. Just as Michel sets the bar for fine dining, we at Cunard set the bar for luxury ocean travel, and his innovative approach to celebrating traditional Norwegian cuisine perfectly aligns with our dedication to offering guests unforgettable and culturally rich experiences.”
