Jamie Oliver’s Sydney Travel Guide grab

Jamie Oliver has grabbed a copy of the hot new Sydney Travel Guide while hosting an exclusive brunch on Royal Caribbean’s Ovation of the Seas at Sydney Overseas Passenger Terminal.

The chef was fresh off the plane the chef had already had already completed a Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb with daughter Poppy before launching Royal Caribbean’s latest Australian cruise season.

The Ovation of the Seas event marked Oliver’s decade-long partnership with Royal Caribbean and the launch of its biggest ever summer in Australia.

The chef, who started work at the family pub restaurant in Essex as a teenager, said docking a ship in Sydney with a Jamie’s Italian restaurant on board was a dream come true.

There is a Jamie’s Italian on eight Royal Caribbean ships and they count among the 76 restaurants he has in 22 countries around the world.

“It feels like a little neighbourhood restaurant on this incredible ark that’s going around,” he said.

Oliver, who also brought along wife Jools for the Australian trip, says having restaurants on Royal Caribbean ships is a dream come true.

“This really is a dream for that little boy that grew up in the restaurant. I can’t believe that we have eight of these restaurants on these incredible ships.”
