fabio viviani  top chef all stars 320 'Top Chef' champions join line up for 'Top Chef: The Cruise'Ever want to set sail with some of the best chef-testants from Bravo’s “Top Chef”? We can’t say the idea has ever occurred to us, but it sounds like fun.

“Top Chef: The Cruise” is scheduled for April 11-15 and they’ve just added a quartet of major names to the guest list: “Top Chef All Stars” winner Richard Blais, “Top Chef Just Desserts” season one winner Yigit Pura, “Top Chef: Texas” winner Paul Qui, and “Fan Favorite” winner Fabio Viviani. They’ll join “Top Chef” hosts Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons, along with 11 more alums.

Among the highlights scheduled for the cruise: behind-the-scenes kitchen tours, the opportunity to participate in live Quickfire challenges, a Q&A session with the chef-lebrities and (what sounds like the standout to us) an evening dance party hosted by DJ and Top Chef Master Hubert Keller. Additional names include Jennifer Carroll and Spike Mendelsohn, who co-star with Blais and Viviani on Bravo’s upcoming series “Life After Top Chef.”

The cruise takes off April 11 from Miami and you can get a sneak peek on Bravo’s website.
