If you thought that luxury cruises were reserved solely for your less than adventurous grandparents, then clearly you aren’t aware of the lengths Bravo Media will go to create yet another way to capitalize on their hit TV show Top Chef.

For the first time ever this Emmy-winning show has teamed with Celebrity Cruises, Magical Elves and Rose Tours to take their epicurean talents to the open sea abroad the luxurious cruise ship, Celebrity Constellation. This new vacation package will offer fans and foodies a once in a lifetime opportunity to spend valuable time with the show's prestigious judges and chefs.

This culinary affair will be hosted by two “Top Chef” stars, Celebrity Chef and Head Judge, Tom Colicchio, and trained culinary expert and food writer, Gail Simmons. It will also feature some of our favorite past contestants, including Hubert Keller, Tim Love, Jennifer Carroll, Tiffany Derry, Chris Hanmer, Michael Isabella, Spike Mendelsohn, Hosea Rosenberg, Angelo Sosa and Casey Thompson.
From April 11-15, 2013 this star-studded cruise will sail roundtrip from Miami, Florida, and will stop in Key West, Florida and Cozumel, Mexico. During the voyage, guests will engage in activities practically identical to those they witness on the show, including “Top Chef” staple Quickfire challenges, and will also be able to take part in culinary demonstrations, question-and-answer sessions and Top Chef menus.

“The incredibly engaged fans of Bravo’s Top Chef are in for a one-of-a-kind and personal opportunity with Top Chef: The Cruise,” said Bravo Senior Vice President, Marketing, Ellen Stone. “With complete access to talented former chef’testants and our amazing judges, Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons, fans will experience and taste the Top Chef culinary feats firsthand!”
