Cruise line and TV network to host food-themed cruise
Wednesday 16 June 2010
Celebrity Cruises has teamed up with the Food Network to offer passengers and viewers the chance to experience the "Food Network at Sea."
The concept, which is similar to the Jillian Michaels Ultimate Wellness Cruise planned by Norwegian Cruise Line later this year, will see chefs from the US-based Food Network take to the seas aboard the Celebrity Solstice on a cruise for culinary enthusiasts.
The ship will sail on a seven-night cruise of the Eastern Caribbean on August 22, with star chefs Cat Cora of Iron Chef and Aaron Sanchez of Chefs vs. City on board to conduct live demonstrations and a “battle of the chefs” event.
Guests will also enjoy a Food Network VIP lounge and screening room, a "dine-around" experience to sample favorite Food Network recipes, a red carpet reception and Caribbean cocktails at the Celebrity Solstice’s Lawn Club.
The cruise will leave Fort Lauderdale, Florida and will call at San Juan, St. Thomas and St. Maarten.
Celebrity Cruises is already a favorite with foodie fans; its most recent liner, the Celebrity Eclipse, had Australian celebrity chef Benjamin Christie on board for its maiden voyage.
Other well-known culinary names due to take to the seas with Celebrity’s ships around the world in 2010 include Adam Byatt, Daisy Martinez, Zach Bell and Carmen Gonzalez.
In May, the Norwegian Cruise Line announced that it had signed up TV star Jillian Michaels to host a cruise in October, inviting guests to enjoy "four days of healthy cuisine, heart-pounding exercise, and live entertainment."
The "ultimate wellness cruise" is expected to feature group workouts (simulcast to all cabins), team sports and workouts for all the family.
