This past year, we launched four “Top Chef”-themed signature sailings—with the final adventure setting sail November 15—and are gearing up for more adventures down the line.
In the meantime, we’re eagerly anticipating the premiere of the twelfth season of “Top Chef” on Bravo, which airs tonight, October 15th. For the first time, the show will be set in the historic port city of Boston and features a new recurring judge—former cheftestat Richard Blais—who will be offering his support (and critiques) to the new season’s competing chefs. Some other “firsts” for the long-running show include a competition on the field underneath the Green Monster, the first “Top Chef” food festival and the first fan appreciation challenge.
Fans should also keep their eyes peeled for classic Boston locales, including Fenway Park, Plimouth Plantation and The Bull and Finch Pub, a.k.a. the bar whose exterior shots stood in for the iconic “Cheers” bar. Many of these site are also available through Celebrity’s Scenic Boston City Tour shore excursion. The 2 hour, 30 minute tour includes stops at some of the city’s most important landmarks, such as the Old South Meetinghouse, where the Boston Tea Party was launched, and the Old Granary Burial Grounds, the cemetery where Sam Adams, John Hancock, and other forefathers were laid to rest.
