Foodies Ultimate Dining at Sea

With the rise in popularity of cooking shows on TV, we're all hungry for more when it comes to celebrity chefs, who've become famous in their own right. These culinary geniuses are now creating beautiful and delicious meals that look more like art than plates of food. This blog post will do justice to the Ultimate dining at sea for all the Foodies out there and the inner Foodie in all of us.

Eating out at their restaurants, found in cities across the world, at times, can seem to cost a small fortune, though, feeling like a pipe dream. Many of these chefs, however, have now introduced their own eateries onboard, providing the opportunity to experience their cuisine first-hand! This could be your chance to savour these delights without the price tag involved, as dining out in these restaurants comes absolutely free as part of your cruise!

Check out our insider's guide on where to find the best food fare on board no matter your taste, hosted by some of the world's best cruise lines.

If you like the idea of casual dining with all of the flavour and care of something fancier, try fast food with a difference at Guy's Diner onboard Carnival Cruise ships. Promising handcrafted burgers and hand cut french fries created in a 1950's style roadside diner, the menu was created by the Food Network's Guy Fieri. Guy's known for his boldly flavoured food, and a burger done well can be absolutely delicious.

Fusion food more your style? Then you must try Nobuyuki 'Nobu' Matsuhisa's restaurant, a renowned chef specialising in Japanese-Peruvian cuisine. His restaurants onboard Crystal Cruises boast sushi, sashimi, cevice, as well as other Japanese delicacies in the Silk Road restaurant and separate Sushi bar.

P&O Cruises recently launched an assault on the celebrity restaurant world – five award winning world class chefs each offering their own area of expertise. Including Olly Smith, wine expert, patissier Eric Lanlard, Michelin starred spice expert Atul Kocchar and chefs' James Martin and Marco Pierre White, there's loads of delicious options to choose from. You can even cook your own food in their presence at one of the Cookery Club's held on the ships – something you'll have great joy in telling your family and friends all about!

Enjoy food evoking Jamie Oliver's rustic indulgence on board Royal Caribbean Cruise Line at his Jamie's Italian brand of eateries. Using the freshest ingredients, the menu has been executed by Jamie himself and offers such delicious delights as British lamb lollipops and rib-eye steak. Yum!

Dining on a cruise holiday is all part of the experience onboard, and with an eclectic choice of restaurants on each vessel, it's your chance to experience all that fine-dining has to offer for yourself.
