French Speciality Restaurant to Feature on Princess Cruises’ Newest Ships

Princess Cruises will introduce French speciality restaurant 'La Mer' on to its two newest ships, the 3,660-guest Sky Princess and Enchanted Princess

The restaurant was first opened on Majestic Princess, the most recent addition to the line’s fleet, in 2017.

La Mer is the creation of three Michelin-starred chef, Emmanuel Renaut. Renaut is Owner and Executive Chef of the Flocons de Sel restaurant, located in the French Alps village of Megève. He previously worked in restaurants including Claridge’s, Hotel de Crillon and Auberge de l’Eridan.

La Mer will offer casual, French bistro-style dining and be located in the Sky Princess atrium.

Sample dishes on Sky Princess include: 

  • Beef filet mignon, sweet onions sauté, red wine jus, hand cut chips
  • Red snapper & scallop mousseline, lobster morsels and lemon grass lobster sauce
  • Mont Blanc ‘Marron-Myrtilles’ dessert – sweet chestnut, blueberry gel and vanilla cream bavarois

Sky Princess will launch in October this year. It will sail a short season in the Mediterranean before heading to the Caribbean. Enchanted Princess will launch in Southampton in June 2020. It will similarly sail an inaugural season in the Mediterranean, with further itineraries to be confirmed.

Rai Caluori, Princess Cruises’ Executive Vice President of Guest Experience and Product Development, said: “It’s been an honour to collaborate with Chef Renaut again to develop a new menu for La Mer and showcase his authentically-crafted dishes. He has a passion to deliver unforgettable French dining.”

Chef Renaut said: “I’m delighted to introduce La Mer to more Princess Cruises guests. My dishes are designed to satisfy every palate by bringing retro French classics and blending favourite ingredients with fresh and unique touches to make each dish memorable.”

A cover charge of $35 per person will apply.
