Princess Cruises Creates New Video Series With Chef Curtis Stone
Princess Cruises has created a new video series with renowned, award-winning chef and restaurateur Curtis Stone, sharing his vision behind SHARE, the new specialty restaurant set to arrive in Australia next year on Sun Princess.
The eight-part SHARE video series will roll out over the next two months as Princess Cruises prepares for the launch of the exclusive-to-Princess Cruises restaurant in December onboard Ruby Princess and Emerald Princess. SHARE will then make its Australian debut onboard Sun Princess in April 2016 when the ship returns from dry dock.
The new SHARE video series offers a close look at Curtis’ inspiration and will help viewers get to know the accomplished chef behind the cruise line’s newest specialty restaurant. It will also offer a few fun surprises, including Curtis’ favourite ingredient, a special recipe, his personal culinary journey and his love of travel.

Princess Cruises Vice President Australia & New Zealand Stuart Allison said there had been a lot of interest in the new culinary venture in Australia and predicted SHARE would be a huge success with Princess’ local guests.
“Curtis is very popular in Australia and the recent launch of his Crafted by Curtis menu items on Golden Princess has been very successful with local cruisers – his pork belly in particular has been a real hit!” Mr Allison said.
“We’re confident SHARE will be embraced in a similar way and we’re delighted to offer cruisers a behind the scenes peek into the inspiration behind this exciting culinary experience via the new video series.”
The cruise line’s partnership with Curtis is the perfect pairing because of the mutual belief that when good food brings people closer together, much like travel, guests experience the world in a whole new way, creating happiness around the table and lifelong memories.
“SHARE is really the central philosophy of everything that I strive for and am passionate about when it comes to food – bringing people together, communicating in a different way and sharing beautiful dishes with the special people in your life,” Curtis said. “I’m excited for cruisers to get to know me better through the SHARE video series and I hope the series inspires people to create lasting memories through food and conversation, both on Princess Cruises’ ships and in their everyday life.”
The SHARE cruise dining experience onboard Princess Cruises encourages joining with family, friends and other cruisers by offering intriguing dishes served family style. Designed by Curtis, the menu features dishes such as an enticing charcuterie starter course, composed salads, handmade pastas, premium quality meats, an array of decadent desserts and more.
This partnership with Curtis adds to the line's "come back new" brand promise, designed to elevate the onboard guest experience by introducing new culinary offerings dedicated to fresh, flavourful cuisine aboard all ships. In addition to SHARE, the "Crafted by Curtis" menu items offered in the main dining rooms will roll out fleet-wide through early 2016. The Chef's Table experience by Curtis Stone will debut in early 2016.
