Celebrity chefs Curtis Stone and Jacques Pepin are among many high-profile culinary stars who have tied their names to restaurants on cruise ships.

Over the festive season break australiancrusingnews.com has checked out the growing number of international celebrity chefs that have linked their names to cruise lines with signature restaurants that now rule the waves.

Japan’s Nobu Matsuhisa, America’s Thomas Keller, Britain’s Marco Pierre White, France’s Jacques Pepin, and Australia’s Curtis Stone are just some of the high-profile culinary stars in the ocean-going mix.

Their restaurants at sea usually offer similar menus to those they run on land, but at far less cost. And the added bonus is that the celebrity chef is sometimes on board the cruise ship for special events, and may even give cooking classes.
