Come cruise with me: celebrity chefs to cook up a storm on P&O Cruises' new ship

ChefSince The Great British Bakeoff first entered our screens, celebrity chef Mary Berry has become something of a national treasure. Now, avid cruisers can get the chance to get on board with Berry's distinctive style of cooking as an impressive line up of some of the UK's best chef’s host cooking lessons on P&O Cruises' new ship Britannia.

Baking queen Berry will share her love of all things food alongside chefs James Martin and Theo Randall on a 12-night British Isles Cruise.

Nathan Outlaw - holder of no less than four Michelin stars - will be taking the helm on a 14-night Spain, Portugal and Morocco cruise.

Other chefs involved in the exciting line up include the following:

  • Legendary French-born chef Pierre Koffman - joined by James Martin on a 14 night Spain, Monaco & Italy cruise.
  • One of the most successful modern Indian chefs in the UK - Vivek Singh - 14 night Spain, Monaco & Italy cruise.
  • The so-called 'godfather' of Italian gastronomy - Antonio Carluccio - 14 night Spain, Monaco & Italy cruise.

This is not the first time Berry has cooked up a storm on board a cruise liner. Last year she helped Viking Cruises break its own Guinness World Record as she smashed a bottle of champagne across the bows of the Alsvin.

The latter was one of 14 deluxe Longships launched in three countries and three cities in just 24 hours. Speaking at the time about her part in helping Viking Cruises set a new world record for 'the most ships inaugurated in one day by one company', Berry said:

“It's an honour, as well as an amazing experience, to christen a vessel which I know will be home for Viking guests as they embark on River Cruising throughout Europe.

“After spending some time on board the Alsvin, I can see why people are so taken with river cruising. As someone who is fascinated by travel, culture and food destinations you certainly get a sense of the Viking spirit on board.”

If you're heading off on a cruise holiday it's important to organise specialist travel insurance in advance.
