P&O Cruises to open chocolate cafe

Article content

2 November 2009

Passengers embarking on a break onboard cruise ship Pacific Jewel are being offered the chance to enjoy a new chocolate cafe.

The P&O Cruises superliner will depart for its first voyage from Sydney this December, with its range of restaurants including the fine dining venue Salt Grill by Luke Mangan.

And the company has now revealed that The Cafe will feature treats such as freshly-baked Belgian waffles, warm chocolate fondant and hot chocolate.

The facility is said to be a first for an Australia-based ship and internet access will also be available.

Sture Myrmell, vice-president of hotel operations at P&O Cruises, explained that a trend for such specialist outlets is emerging, adding: "With every Australian consuming an average [of] six kilograms of chocolate a year, [we] think our new cafe will go down a treat."

Food is set to be a focus for the firm next year, when Michelin-starred celebrity chefs Gary Rhodes, Marco Pierre White and Atul Kochhar will all be travelling onboard different liners.
