Cunard will bring back an exclusive series of Le Gavroche residencies at sea this year as two Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux brings his iconic London restaurant to guests on Queen Anne and Queen Mary 2.

Chef Roux will close his popular Mayfair restaurant—started by his father and uncle in 1967—this month and oversee four Le Gavroche residencies across four exciting Fjords voyages in 2024.

The exclusive series will be delivered in partnership with the Norwegian Seafood Council and begins with Le Gavroche at The Verandah aboard Cunard’s flagship Queen Mary 2, for her sailing to Hardangerfjord on June 2.

The 5-night residency—which will be an additional charge for guests—will cater to 60 diners each evening, showcasing a variety of Roux’s signature seafood specialties and elevated culinary classics in a 5-course tasting menu.

Roux will then host a second residency aboard Queen Mary 2 for her Hamburg roundtrip Fjords voyage on Aug. 6.

Following that, Roux will deliver another intimate, 5-night takeover with Le Gavroche at Sir Samuel’s on-board Cunard’s newest ship Queen Anne as she departs for Stavanger in Norway on Aug. 11.

The quartet of Roux’s residency concludes on the Queen Anne on Sept. 1 as she sails to Haugesund.

During these voyages, Roux also will appear as an Insights Speaker in the Royal Court Theatre, regaling guests with stories from his illustrious 40-plus-year career in the hospitality industry.

The news follows August’s announcement that Roux will be creating an exclusive gala menu for Queen Anne’s Queens Grill and Princess Grill restaurants, as well as a new Golden Lion menu full of refined pub favorites for Cunard’s newest ship.

Katie McAlister, president of Cunard, said in a media announcement, “We are incredibly honored to exclusively host Le Gavroche at sea and continue our exciting partnership with Michel Roux. Just as Roux 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.”
