top chef all stars family challenge Sail on the 'Top Chef' cruise with Spike Medelsohn, Tom Colicchio and moreIn one of the most logical TV tie-ins ever, “Top Chef” is setting sail! Bravo has announced an official “Top Chef” cruise featuring judges Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons and former cheftestants like Spike Mendelsohn, Angelo Sosa and Jennifer Carroll, who will travel from Miami to Mexico in April 2013.

We all know the best (and worst) part of a cruise is the non-stop gourmet food, so to take such awesome chefs on board for cooking demos, Quickfire challenges, “Top Chef” menus and more “TC”-related events, according to, makes total sense.

You can buy tickets starting Aug. 16 ranging in price from $699 to $5,999 (that’s what a penthouse suite with veranda will set you back). So far, Mendelsohn, Sosa, Carroll, Hubert Keller, Tim Love, Tiffany Derry, Chris Hanmer, Michael Isabella, Hosea Rosenberg and Casey Thopmpson have all signed on, but the cruise’s website promises many more to come.
