Phillip Schofield dining onboard Regal Princess


'My top foodie experiences onboard'

Princess UK ambassador Phillip Schofield gives us a taste of his memorable culinary experiences

April 2020

It's no secret that Phillip Schofield is a bit of a foodie and wine connoisseur, and one of his favourite parts of working with Princess is that he gets to enjoy and experience all of the incredible dining and drink options onboard. We caught up with him to get his must-eats from around the ship...

The Crown Grill

Table in the Crown Grill


“I got to dine in the Crown Grill at a table that was virtually in the wine cellar… it doesn’t get any better than that for me. The wine list onboard is so good, and I was surprised by the value for money.”

Some of our favourites from the menu:

Alfredo's pizza

“Alfredo’s has been awarded the title of ‘Best Pizza at Sea’ and I can see why – it’s absolutely delicious.”

Fun fact: Alfredo’s Pizzeria is named after Master Chef Alfredo Marzi, who created the thin Neapolitan style crust from scratch especially for Princess. Visit to watch your personal pizza be crafted by hand and served fresh from the oven.

The impressive onboard facilities

Phillip Schofield in conversation with a pastry chef onboard a Princess ship


“I took a galley tour of the kitchen and loved it. It’s amazing how vast the kitchens are and how many people work to create exceptional food each day. The bread and pastries are made on the ship daily! There are even dedicated staff who just make the croissants. It’s astonishing to think there is a huge working bakery below you at all times.”

Piazza sushi bar

“I discovered a sushi bar* in the Piazza that I always return to. The opportunity to have a light bite in the afternoon is just too good to pass up.”

Some of our favourites from the menu:

24-hour room service

“There is 24-hour room service in every stateroom. Just use the OceanNow** app to order and, voilà, it’s with you in no time. It’s been great to see Princess innovate over the years, especially with MedallionClass features like this. It exceeds my expectations every time.”

The 24-hour International Café

Selection of sweets and pastries at the International Cafe


"I love the 24-hour International Café for light bites such as pastries, soups and salads, plus tea, regular coffee and lemonade – all of which are, incredibly, included in your fare."

Did you know? Because it's open around the clock, you can always rely on the International Café for a bite. Whether you're peckish after a late night excursion or have an early excursion to head out for, you won't go hungry.

A top foodie shore excursion...

Den Gamle By Museum in Aarhus


“I love having the opportunity to experience local heritage first hand. On an excursion to Den Gamle By Museum in Aarhus, I got to chat with some local bakers about their traditional baking methods.”

Another great way to see the best of Aarhus is on either Highlights of Aarhus shore excursion.
