Cunard has announced it will bring back a series of Le Gavroche residencies at sea with chef Michel Roux in 2024, even though the London restaurant is closing in January.

The two Michelin-starred chef will oversee four Le Gavroche at sea sailings onboard both the soon-to-launch Queen Anne and Queen Mary 2.

He will join cruises around the Norwegian Fjords as part of a five-night residency in partnership with the Norwegian Seafood Council and begins with Le Gavroche at The Verandah on Queen Mary 2 on 2 June.

For an extra fee, guests will receive a five-course tasting menu as well as listen to Michel give talks about his career in the hospitality industry. The dining experience will cater for 50 guests each night.

The other Le Gavroche sailings will be on Queen Mary 2 on 6 August and on Queen Anne on 11 August and 1 September.

Cunard President Katie McAlister said: “We are incredibly honoured to exclusively host Le Gavroche at sea and continue our exciting partnership with Michel Roux. Just as Michel sets the bar for fine dining, we at Cunard set the bar for luxury ocean travel, and his innovative approach to celebrating traditional Norwegian cuisine perfectly aligns with our dedication to offering guests unforgettable and culturally rich experiences.”

Michel Roux added: “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.”
