He commented: “It is an absolute privilege to bring Le Gavroche to Cunard’s Queens, reuniting with their hugely talented and passionate culinary development chefs as we strive to create menus inspired by the treasures of Norwegian cuisine.

“The culinary heritage of Norway is a tapestry of flavours, and together with Cunard, I look forward to weaving these elements into an extraordinary dining experience at Sir Samuel’s and The Verandah. My ongoing partnership with the Norwegian Seafood Council allows us to ensure every dish tells a story of the nation’s natural beauty.”

Guests will be treated to a five-course tasting menu infused with all the flavours of the sea, using the best produce. Le Gavroche at Sea will showcase the variety of Michel’s signature seafood specialities and elevated culinary classics.
