Top Chef at Sea, Iron Chef at Golden Foodies

Do It Here, Then Do It There…

Celebrity Cruises Top Chef at Sea
Celebrity Cruises Top Chef at Sea

If you love to cook or simply love good cuisine, then you may be addicted to some of the popular chef shows out there such as Top Chef and Iron Chef. Did you know that you can experience those first hand thanks to an upcoming event in SoCal and an itinerary with Celebrity Cruises?

Iron Chef at Golden Foodies

First Iron Chef. One of the famed chefs from that tv show is Simon Majumdar, who is known for his ambition to “Go Everywhere. Eat Everything.” He is also the author of three food books, the third one of which is coming out later this year. If you’re a fan of Simon Majumdar, then you’ll want to get yourself to the Golden Foodies, as he’ll be hosting this year’s ceremony.

The Golden Foodies are September 27 at the Fairmont in Newport Beach. For more information, click here.

Top Chef at Sea

After getting your fill of one Iron Chef, immerse yourself into the world of Top Chef. Bravo’s much-loved television show has partnered up with Celebrity Cruises for a Top Chef at Sea signature cruise this November in the Caribbean.

The 7-night cruise departs November 14 and includes fun-filled Top Chef activities onboard, such as Quickfire Challenges, “Dual” Cooking Demonstrations, Cheftestant meet and greets and Top Chef led shore excursions. For more information on this itinerary, click here.

Whether at home at the Golden Foodies or at sea with Top Chef — or both — get ready for some foodie fun!

 

Port of Call Spotlight: Barcelona

From boardwalks and beaches to tasty tapas and original architecture, Barcelona is often one of the Mediterranean ports of call that most excites people on a cruise. Here are the top things not to miss while in Barcelona.

The Buildings of Gaudi

Anton Gaudi was an architect in Barcelona who is famous for some of the city’s most iconic buildings. Though there are several Gaudi works across the city, the one you can’t miss is the Sagrada Familia, a cathedral that is still being built and is not like any cathedral you’ve seen before.

Walk Along Las Ramblas

Las Ramblas is the main boulevard in Barcelona and is flanked by shops and restaurants. Grab a glass of sangria or a tapas to get your energy back up after taking an amble down the iconic street.

Beautiful Beaches

Barcelona is home to some gorgeous beaches ideal for lying on and soaking up the sun or using as a jumping off point for swimming in the sea. The wide gray-checkered boardwalk also provides a relaxing way to experience the beach by walking down it and taking in all the sights and smells of coastal Barcelona.

Exploring Barcelona’s Markets

The markets of Barcelona are also exciting to check out and a fun place for those looking to do some shopping while in port. The Barcelona Markets Walking Tour shore excursion makes sure you have the chance to see the best ones that are open the day you’re in port and also takes you through some of the prettiest and alluring parts of Barcelona, like the winding roads of the Old Gothic Quarter.

Go Best When You Go to Europe

With Celebrity Cruises’ new Go Big, Go Better, Go Best pricing, you can choose how “all-inclusive” to make your cruise if staying in an oceanview or verandah stateroom or suite thanks to three different pricing tiers.

Each tier lets you pick  a certain number of perks. The perks are:

  • Classic Beverage Package for two for the duration of your cruise (includes alcoholic beverages)
  • Up to $150 per person Onboard Spending
  • Unlimited Internet for two
  • Prepaid Tips for two

Go Big lets you choose one of these perks.

Go Better lets you choose two.

And Go Best gives you all of them, plus an extra bonus. Let’s talk about Go Best pricing in a bit more detail.

Take this 10-night Mediterranean cruise that departs October 2 from Rome for example.

Go Big oceanview stateroom pricing starts at $1,999. Go Best is $450 more. Is it worth it?

Well, first off, lets look at Internet. Getting an international Internet package when in Europe usually isn’t cheap whether on land or at sea. The Free Unlimited Internet perk saves you from worrying where you’re going to find Wi-Fi. When you get back on the ship after a day exploring, upload all the photos of European wonders you took to Facebook (or check work email if you must) and don’t worry how much every minute is costing you. But you can think about how much you’re saving, which is $349 for a 10-night cruise.

After you upload those photos and check email you may find yourself in the mood for a pre-dinner drink…the find yourself wanting a glass of wine to enjoy with your meal (you are in Europe after all — enjoy that dolce vita life with a good glass or two of wine)…followed by an after dinner cocktail. On vacation, this scenario isn’t that out of the ordinary for most people and those drinks can add up fast. (Not to mention the drinks you have poolside on at sea days.) With Go Best pricing you don’t need to worry about how much you’re spending on alcohol. Plus, this is where that bonus perk comes to play. Instead of a Classic Beverage Package, you get a Premium Beverage Package, which means you now get access to top-shelf liquors, premium beers and wines up to $13 per glass. The Premium Beverage Package usually starts from  $65 per night or $650 during the course of a 10-night cruise.

That $450 extra you’re spending for Go Best pricing is starting to sound better and better isn’t it? But we’re not done yet.

With Go Best pricing, you also get shipboard credit. On the Mediterranean cruise from Rome you get the full $150. You can use that toward shore excursions (such as visiting Pompeii while in port in Naples or wine tasting in Santorini) or a spa treatment at the onboard CanyonRanch Spa Club, or use it toward a 5-star dining experience at one of Celebrity’s onboard specialty restaurant. On this European itinerary onboard the Celebrity Reflection ship, that means you have the opportunity to dine al fresco in the Lawn Club Grill or enjoy a unique presentation of culinary creations at Qsine — or try one of the many other restaurants onboard

Lastly, Go Best pricing includes daily tips. While your amount of spending for drinks, excursions, spa, and Internet is subject to change, there’s no getting around daily gratuity fees. On a 10-night Europe cruise in an oceanview stateroom, gratuity is $12.95 per day or $129.50 for the entire cruise.

Altogether, on your 10-night Mediterranean cruise, Go Best pricing perks can save you up to $1,278.50…minus the $450, of course (which  may now be looking like a REALLY good deal).

Ready to Go Best and book your cruise? Visit www.CelebrityCruises.com/SoCal or speak with your local travel agent. Be sure to also ask how booking a verandah stateroom or suite can enhance your cruise!
