Cunard Extends Partnership With Chef Michel Roux

Cunard is set to bring back an exclusive series of Le Gavroche residencies at sea this year as two Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux brings his London restaurant to guests onboard Queen Anne and Queen Mary 2. The chef will close the popular Mayfair venue this month and oversee four Le Gavroche residencies across four 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 its sailing to Hardangerfjord on June 2. The five-night residency, which will be an additional charge for guests, will cater to 60 diners each evening, showcasing a range of Roux’s signature seafood specialties and enhanced culinary classics over a five-course tasting menu.

Roux will then host a second residency aboard Queen Mary 2 for its Hamburg roundtrip fjords voyage on August 6. This same month, Roux will deliver another intimate, five-night takeover with Le Gavroche at Sir Samuel’s onboard Queen Anne as it departs for Stavanger in Norway on August 11. This dining experience will cater for 50 guests each night. Chef Roux will complete his quartet of takeovers with a further Norwegian residency on Queen Anne on September 1 as it sails to Haugesund.

During these voyages, Roux will also appear as an Insights Speaker in the Royal Court Theatre, regaling guests with stories from his 40-plus-year career in the hospitality industry.

The news follows August’s announcement that Roux 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 pub favorites for Cunard’s newest ship.
