Celebrity Cruises announced that two Michelin-starred chefs, Adam Simmonds, winner of Great British Menu 2014, and Robert Thompson, one of the youngest chefs in the UK to receive a Michelin star will return to Celebrity Eclipse this summer to cook together.

Both chefs will be onboard a 14 night Mediterranean sailing following their participation in a two night sailing to Paris.  

Commenting on the announcement, Jo Rzymowska, managing director Celebrity Cruises UK & Ireland said: ‘We have enjoyed a hugely positive response from guests since announcing that Adam and Robert would join us for the Celebrity Eclipse ‘Taste of Modern Luxury’ sailing this month and look forward to their return in August.’
