Just when it seemed like "Top Chef" couldn't possibly launch any more spin-offs or seasons, it has found a new iteration: the celebrity cruise. Hosted by Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons, Top Chef: The Cruise will set sail aboard the Celebrity Constellation ship on April 2013, according to a press release. The ship leaves from Miami and will head to Key West and then Cozumel, Mexico.
All sorts of chefs from past seasons will be aboard including Hubert Keller, Tim Love, Jennifer Carroll, Tiffany Derry, Chris Hanmer, Michael Isabella, Spike Mendelsohn, Hosea Rosenberg, Angelo Sosa and Casey Thompson. And yes -- there will be Quickfire challenges, among other culinary sessions such as cooking demonstrations and question-and-answer sessions.
We think being trapped aboard a ship for four days with a bunch of chefs sounds fun enough, but when you mix that with rabid "Top Chef" fans, we're thinking this could be a recipe for disaster. Good thing there's a beverage package.
Staterooms are available starting August 16 -- they range from $799 to $5,999.
