Top Chef at Sea cruise will sail in November -- and into 2016

Six contestants to be featured on Top Chef at Sea cruise from Miami in November

If you like watching chefs square off on Bravo's TV show "Top Chef," why not watch them duel at sea as well?

Celebrity Cruises announced Thursday that Top Chef at Sea cruises would continue into 2016 under an agreement with Bravo, which produces the show. The partnership began two years ago.

For the upcoming cruise, Celebrity picked six contestants to sail to the eastern Caribbean in November aboard the Celebrity Reflection.

Nina Compton, Tiffany Derry, Ash Fulk, Gregory GourdetDoug Adams and Chris Crary will be on board the seven-night sailing from Miami.

During the cruise, you can schmooze with the chefs, ask questions, take a cooking class and even have one of the chefs be your host while on shore. You can also reserve private cooking classes and dinners with the chefs too.

But mostly you can watch them compete in the kitchen with the audience as their judges. Passengers too will get a taste of what it's like to be in the hot seat. Quickfire Challenges onboard the ship judge teams on how fast they can prepare an entree or some other kitchen task.

Port stops on the cruise include San Juan, Puerto Rico; Charlotte Amalie on St. Thomas and Philipsburg, St. Maarten, before returning to Miami. Passengers spend three days at sea during this cruise.

Cabin prices start at $699 per person, based on double occupancy. Taxes fees and port expenses add $104 per person.
