Default Princess to Introduce Chef's Table on Emerald

This sounds like a great experience but a bit expensive. Article is from Modern Agent 2/28/07

Princess to Introduce Chef's Table on Emerald

Princess Cruises' new Emerald Princess will feature a new culinary treat when it sets sail for the first time this spring -- a chef's table that allows foodies to share pre-dinner cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in the ship's galley followed by a multi-course tasting dinner in the dining room. While many passengers are able to enjoy a tour of the ship's galley during the quiet off-hours, the new Chef's Table will give a select group of gourmands the opportunity to visit the galley at its most busy time -- during dinner. After the maitre d' escorts the passengers to the galley and introduces them to the executive chef, the group will enjoy French champagne with appetizers. The chef will preview the details of the menu he created for them that evening, and the group will be welcomed to their special table in the dining room.

The multi-course menu will be specially created at the chef's choice, and will not be offered anywhere else on the ship. The fare might include anything from a focus on regional cuisine to a showcase of indigenous ingredients from a recent port. Each course will be accompanied by a detailed explanation of special features, preparation methods, and tasting suggestions. Red and white wine, selected by the maitre d' to complement the meal, is included in the evening. During the dessert course, the chef will rejoin the group at their private table to discuss the evening's meal, answer questions, and share culinary secrets. On average, Princess' chefs have been honing their culinary skills both onboard and shoreside for at least 25 years, and all chefs are also members of the international Chaîne des Rôtisseurs gastronomic society.

Additionally, each couple at the Chef's Table will receive an autographed copy of Princess' cookbook "Courses, A Culinary Journey," which has sold more than 100,000 copies worldwide and is now available on amazon.com. Guests will also enjoy a complimentary photo taken at the private table with the chef. The Chef's Table experience can be reserved by up to 10 passengers on select nights, at a cost of $75 per person. After its debut on the Emerald Princess, Chef's Table will be gradually introduced on all Princess ships fleetwide.

Before long would expect that we will be paying extra for special shows on the ship It is only a matter of time.What happened to the good old days when you could get a drink at a reasonable price and a decent bottle of wine at dinner without costing you an arm and a leg?Am sure someone will tell me that Ido not have to partake in these extra activities however they were arround several years ago and I can always think how great cruising was in the old days and not that today is not enjoyable.
