Cooking for family and friends has always been a passion of Naomi's and she loves to experiment with different cultural cuisines, this combined with a season catering in a 4 star chalet has given her the skills to create mouth-watering dishes as onboard chef.
Her friendly and enthusiastic personality has lent itself to hosting roles and she hopes to welcome you aboard Polar Bear this summer.
