Celebrity Cruises and Bravo Media are offering “Top Chef” fans and food lovers the opportunity to meet a new lineup of cheftestants on the Celebrity Reflection® sailing November 14, 2015.

The exclusive “Top Chef Signature Sailing” cruises to the Eastern Caribbean from Miami, Florida. Guests get an up-close-and-personal culinary experience with six former “Top Chef” competitors, including Los Angeles’ Chris Crary, the Executive Chef of Hyde Sunset Kitchen + Cocktails.

Other chefs include Nina Compton a Top Chef New Orleans runner-up; Tiffany Derry a Top Chef D.C. and Top Chef All-Stars contestant; Ash Fulk from Top Chef Las Vegas; Gregory Gourdet a Top Chef Boston runner-up; and Doug Adams, a Top Chef Boston finalist.

Passengers can choose from an array of exclusive chef-hosted shore excursions, as well as, new watch duel-style cooking demonstrations, where cheftestants battle each other while answering fans’ questions. The audience gets to choose the winning dish.

Celebrity will continue to offer interactive Quickfire Challenges and “Top Chef”-inspired menu evenings on its modern luxury vacations onboard nine ships, for all sailings departing through June 2016.

The Quickfire Challenges put guests in the spotlight to get a taste of the pressure the cheftestants experience on the show. Plus, guests can indulge in a selection of the dishes the judges raved about on the series at “Top Chef Night” in the main restaurant.

The Celebrity Reflection® is a newer ship with an expanded deck, additional staterooms, more seating in the main and specialty restaurants, more sun lounge chairs on the pool deck, and more seats in the theatre. There is the new Lawn Club Grill celebrating outdoor grilling and The Alcoves offering cabana-style relaxation. Passengers can take a painting class with a Master Artist from the ArtCenter South Florida in The Art Studio, before or after a spa experience in the Canyon Ranch SpaClub®.

Bravo’s Emmy® and James Beard Award-winning “Top Chef” will return for season 13 this fall. For more details about Top Chef at Sea, visit
