Known for his fresh, simple and pure approach to food and drink, Michael will help influence food and beverage experiences aboard Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas, Royal Caribbean’s highly anticipated cruise ships set to debut in November 2014 and April 2015, respectively.

Michael’s new role comes in addition to the latest announcement of the introduction of Michael’s Genuine Pub on Quantum-class ships, the first American gastropubs at sea, announced at Royal Caribbean’s culinary reveal in New York City. As Quantum Experience Advisor for Culinary, Michael joins athlete and adventurer Dhani Jones, Quantum Experience Advisor for Sports and Fitness, and HGTV-star Genevieve Gorder, Quantum Experience Advisor for Design.

“We are very much looking forward to continue working with Michael in his new role as a Quantum Experience Advisor, where he will help us deliver culinary WOWs aboard Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, Executive Vice President – Operations, Royal Caribbean International. “Our onboard culinary programme has always emphasised fresh, natural ingredients, and Michael’s culinary philosophy will be a perfect complement as we work together to serve up never-before dining experiences at sea aboard the Quantum Class.”

For Quantum Class, in addition to Michael’s Genuine Pub, Michael will help create memorable onboard experiences for guests, such as developing new twists to the Chef’s Table, food and beverage pairings, and programming for guests onboard. He is further building on his work with Royal Caribbean, having designed seasonal tasting menus for the cruise line’s Oasis-class fine dining restaurant, 150 Central Park, as well as helped select and integrate fresh, high quality ingredients into 150 Central Park’s supply chain.

“I am very pleased to be named a Quantum Experience Advisor and become even more engaged with the Quantum Class,” said Michael. “With the new Michael’s Genuine Pub and other Dynamic Dining options onboard Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas, there are plenty of opportunities to showcase how good food and good drink can help enhance a Royal Caribbean Quantum-class vacation.”
