Princess Cruises announced, today April 11th, that concept seafood restaurant ‘The Catch’ by Award-Winning Chef Rudi Sodamin will be appearing across their fleet – starting with Enchanted Princess on April 15th.
‘The Catch by Rudi’ is the first Princess restaurant that is primarily devoted to seafood and offers a completely fresh take on seafood with the chef’s contemporary interpretations of classic dishes, international fusion influences, highly-creative presentations and promises an “engaging dining experience”.
Priced at just $39 per person, and available as part of the Princess Premier package, ‘The Catch by Rudi’ will replace ‘Bistro Sur la Mer’ venue on Enchanted Princess.
Guests will be greeted at their table by a special cocktail created by mixologist Rob Floyd, and offered fresh treats from the Seafood Trolly – a feast for the eyes with fresh lobster tail, shrimp, oysters, mussels, piled high along with other seafood treats.
“The Catch by Rudi is my way of combining my love of food, seafood and people with my incredible culinary journey at sea and my lifelong history of cooking seafood across the globe to delight Princess guests,” said Sodamin. “I want to deliver a new way to enjoy seafood and a fresh perspective on something they thought they knew. Everything we are doing with The Catch is about ‘catching’ that precious moment we call ‘now’—and doing it in such a memorable and unexpected way that makes you say ‘wow!’”
The new restaurant concept will be added aboard Majestic Princess (May 5th) in time for Alaska Season, Sky Princess (May 7th) sailing from Southampton on Scandinavian and Baltic itineraries this summer and aboard Discovery Princess later in the Autumn.
Other changes aboard Enchanted Princess will include a new concept Irish Pub, dubbed ‘O’Malley’s’ and an expanded Princess Plaza on Deck 7 called Settimo Cielo (or Seventh Heaven) – which will be home to Bellini’s Venice-inspired cocktail bar and Gigi’s Pizzeria by Alfredo. Enchanted Princess’ lido deck will also be receiving the fan-favourite ‘Salty Dog Café’.
