The great thing about cruise ships is that every line offers fantastic food, and of course it depends on your own tastes as to what you’ll find the best.
A number of cruise lines employ celebrity chefs to enhance the menus on-board. Cunard Line work with Todd English, an American chef known for his high quality Mediterranean dishes, while Disney Cruises have the inspiration of Arnaud Lallement for the Remy restaurants on Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. Holland America Line work with Craig Hopson, Geoffrey Zakarian has helped co-ordinate menus on the Norwegian Breakaway, Michael Schwartz has written the menu for 150 Central Park on the Oasis of the Seas, while Jacques Pepin has his own restaurant on some of the Oceania ships. P&O Cruises employ the skills of two celebrity chefs – Marco Pierre White, in six restaurants across the fleet, and Atul Kochar who is known for his modern Indian cuisine, with his Sindhu restaurant on Azura. If you want something different, Nobu Matsuhisa offers incredible Japanese-Peruvian fusion dishes on the Crystal ships, or a more relaxed option is Guy’s Burger Joint on Carnival ships, created by Guy Fieri.
If your idea of the best food is the highest quality, then these options above are some of the top options, or one of the six star cruise lines such as Seabourn Cruise Line and Silversea Cruises. Whereas if choice is more important to you, then the biggest ships now have a plethora of specialty and standard dining options. The Oasis class ships with Royal Caribbean have 20 different dining options, while the Norwegian Breakaway has 16 great choices.
