Good food and vacation are perfect partners, especially when you can pair up Top Chef and Celebrity Cruises' top-notch digs for a ridiculously delicious and posh getaway.
In April 2013, Chef and Celebrity are joining forces to offer up "Top Chef: The Cruise," where travelers can rub elbows with Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons, and also a handful of past chef-testants all while lamping in the modern luxury of Celebrity Constellation. The trip is at this point a one-time only opportunity from April 11-15, leaving out of Miami, Florida and hitting the open seas with stops in Key West and Cozumel, Mexico.
Once on board, guests can kick back and enjoy the Constellation's amenities, and then check out special interactive Quickfire challenges a la Top Chef, Q&As with the talent, cooking demos and Chef-based menus along with Celebrity's James Beard Award-featured chef during the trip.
Aside from Tom and Gail, Top Chef Masters alum Hubert Keller and Tim Love, along with Chef-testants Jennifer Carroll, Tiffany Derry, Chris Hanmer, Michael Isabella, Spike Mendelsohn, Hosea Rosenberg, Angelo Sosa and Casey Thompson -- with others likely to join.
Want in? You can book your room starting at noon EST on August 16, 2012, at TopChefTheCruise.com.
I am so excited! I keep watching the commercials about the cruise and finally told my husband last night that it would be the best vacation. Watch all the shows, adore the chefs, and have a lot of the cookbooks. I'm reading Tom C.'s book right now. This morning, my husband booked the cruise with a fabulous room! Great to have a spontaneous husband!
