Aussie cruisers will soon be able to try Curtis Stone’s new restaurant SHARE onboard the Sun Princess following a multi-million dollar refurbishment this month.

The celebrity chef partnered with Princess Cruises last year to create the new restaurant which will eventually be rolled out to all ships.

Curtis’s idea for the restaurant was for guests to be able to share dishes among each other. Aussie cruisers can share small plates like the charcuterie platter, shrimp salad, butter poached lobster, or beef cheek pie.

“We couldn’t be more excited about SHARE’s debut down under on Sun Princess. Australians are very familiar with Curtis Stone but without a restaurant here, they haven’t been able to taste his dishes – until now. We know our guests will enjoy the special menu Curtis Stone has created for SHARE and will relish the opportunity to share some wonderful food with friends and family in his new onboard restaurant. We’ll be revealing some of the exclusive dishes to be served onboard in the coming weeks,” said Princess Cruises Vice President Australia and New Zealand Stuart Allison.

She will go into drydock in Singapore for 14-days before she sails towards Australia. She will offer a new Princess Luxury Bed designed by US sleep expert Dr Michael Breus, known as The Sleep Doctor.

The Kai Sushi restaurant will be transformed into the Kai Seafood Bar with brand new wine and fresh seafood. The restaurant will serve freshly shucked Australian oysters, prawns, sashimi and shellfish at sea. A New Zealand Natural ice cream outlet will be added to the pool deck and the Amuleto Café will offer Italian-style coffee and cakes.

The restaurant was first launched on the Emerald Princess last year.

The Sun Princess will sail from Brisbane, Sydney and Fremantle with itineraries starting from $1,199 per person, twin share for a 10-night roundtrip cruise from Sydney to New Caledonia and Vanuatu.
