Princess Cruises is introducing a new boutique restaurant that celebrates love and art.
Named ‘Love by Britto,’ it will be available on Sun Princess when the ship sets sail in 2024 as a collaboration between artist Romero Britto and in-house Chef Rudi Sodamin.
Passengers will find the new dining venue on deck 17 of Sun Princess. It promises to showcase Britto’s art, which is known to be joyful, vivid, and bold. Brazilian-born and Miami-based, Britto is internationally renowned.
His Happy Art Movement has taken the art world by storm, inspiring happiness, fun, hope, and love through his vibrant artwork.
Believing that “art is too important not to share,” Britto has been a guest speaker at many World Economic Forum events and has advocated for over 250 charitable organizations.
“On the amazing Sun Princess, we’re going to celebrate love for life every evening by pairing an incredibly unique vibe with exceptional cuisine to create a setting for everyone to indulge their senses and emotions,” said Britto.
7-course menu by Chef Rudi Sodamin
Alongside Britto’s artwork, head of culinary arts for Princess Cruises Rudi Sodamin has crafted a delectable seven-course menu.
|For $149 a head, passengers can enjoy a luxurious meal that starts with champagne followed by indulgent dishes like Oysters with Champagne Pearls, Asparagus and Watermelon Cocktail with Vodka, Lobster Thermidor with Clams and Wild Rice, and Wagyu Chateaubriand Rossini.
Desert options include White Valrhona Chocolate with Hot Raspberries, Iced Soufflé Tahiti Vanilla, and Hot Chocolate Soufflé with Hot Bing Cherries.
The Sun Princess will offer 30 bars and restaurants in all.
Love by Britto is a perfect match for the Love Boat
Nicknamed the Love Boat, the Sun Princess pays tribute to the popularity of the television series of the same name from the 70s. Due to its immense popularity, the hit show aired from 1977 to 1987.
Many of its episodes were filmed onboard ships owned by Princess Cruises, particularly Island Princess and Pacific Princess.
Weighing 175,500 gross tons and measuring 1,133 feet, the new Love Boat is scheduled to set sail next year.
It will have many signature amenities like the first roll glider on a cruise ship, an obstacle course, cantilevered tilted walls, tabletop sports, and three original circus shows courtesy of Cirque Éloize.
