Celebrity chef Shivi Ramoutar joins P&O’s culinary lineup

Shivi will bring her Caribbean dishes to new ship Arvia in December 2022

Chef and author Shivi Ramoutar is joining P&O Cruises culinary lineup as a Local Food Hero as part of the launch of new ship Arvia in December 2022.

Famed for her contemporary Caribbean cooking, Shivi will bring her vibrant dishes to Arvia for its maiden season from home port Barbados.

Passengers will be able to feast on an exclusive collection of her dishes at the ship’s restaurants Taste 360 and The Beach House.

As a Local Food Hero, Shivi will join José Pizarro and Kjartan Skelde in bringing destinations to life by offering authentic dishes in the ship’s restaurants.

P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said: “Shivi’s passion, bold flavour, colourful ingredients and joyful style will bring traditional Caribbean food to our guests.”

He added: “As Shivi joins Marco Pierre White and Olly Smith as well as José and Kjartan, I am so proud that we have an extraordinary line-up of chefs lending their skills and talents to our dining choice.”

Shivi grew up in Trinidad and sealed her reputation for exciting Caribbean cooking with two cookbooks. She is now resident chef on ITV’s Martin & Roman’s Weekend Best, as well as making many other television appearances.

She said “Caribbean food is proper fusion food, influenced by all the people who have travelled through the region. I hope to make the dining experience on Arvia as much about limin’ (the Caribbean art of relaxing with friends) as it is about the food. The dishes will be my interpretation of the Caribbean flavours which have influenced my life.”

Arvia will offer 14-night Caribbean fly/cruise itineraries from January 2023 to March 2023 and from October 2023 to March 2024.

P&O is offering a 14-night cruise on Arvia for £2,099 per person for an inside cabin, departing on January 21, 2023. The price includes flights, kids’ clubs, full board meals and entertainment.
