Princess Cruises has announced a new dining experience: SHARE by Curtis Stone, his first restaurant at sea.
SHARE offers a specialty dining experience for guests with a menu of signature dishes imagined for sharing. The new restaurant is scheduled to debut aboard Ruby Princess and Emerald Princess this December.
The announcement is part of a partnership with Chef Stone that was announced as part of the line's "Come Back New" branding. As part of the partnership, “Crafted by Curtis” menu items offered in the main dining rooms will debut aboard Golden Princess in the fall and roll out fleet-wide through the end of 2015. Curtis Stone’s Chef’s Table experience will debut in early 2016.
The SHARE dining experience is meant to encourage connecting with family, friends and other cruisers by offering dishes served family style. Designed by Chef Stone, the menu includes dishes such as a Charcuterie starter course; Butter Roasted Lobster with Caramelized Endive and Endive Foam; Twice Cooked Duck Leg with Fennel, Bacon jus and Parmesan Crumb; Tagliatelle with Roasted Alaskan Crab, Chili and Parsley; and Dark Chocolate Cremeux with Toasted Hazelnut Feuilletine and Burnt Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
Hospitality designer Jeffrey Beers International developed the dining ambiance, which is meant to be a reflection of Chef Stone’s creative vision that stems from his own childhood mealtime experiences.
