Holland America Line’s Global Fresh Fish Program will be in the spotlight next week as the award-winning Bravo series Top Chef airs from onboard Eurodam in the Caribbean.

The episode, scheduled to air June 12, will feature a special appearance by Holland America Line’s fresh fish ambassador, chef Masaharu Morimoto.

The collaboration is part of Holland America’s partnership with the show’s 21st season and represents the first time Top Chef has filmed the series finale in the Caribbean on a cruise ship.

The June 12 episode will air at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo and will be available to stream the next day on Peacock.

The high seas episode unites Holland America Line’s Global Fresh Fish Program with the show’s penultimate elimination challenge.

While aboard Eurodam, the final four contestants will receive a surprise visit from Morimoto before preparing an eight-course fish tasting menu for the judges and a table of experts.

The winner of the penultimate elimination challenge will receive a $10,000 cash prize, as well as a 10-day cruise from Holland America Line.

“We are highly focused on providing our guests with exceptional culinary experiences, and teaming up with Bravo’s Top Chef is an incredible opportunity to not only bring attention to our Global Fresh Fish Program, but to give a glimpse into cruising,” said Gus Antorcha, president of Holland America Line. “It was exciting to bring Chef Morimoto on Eurodam to prepare a meal for the cheftestants and showcase some of his dishes we serve on board.”

During his visit, Morimoto will prepare a meal for the contestants, including the Halibut XO—a dish he created especially for Holland America Line that is available fleetwide on the dining room menu.

“For two decades, Bravo’s Top Chef has united fans over a love for food, travel and culture,” said Jamie Cutburth, executive vice-president of creative partnerships, advertising and partnerships at NBCUniversal. “And throughout the show’s iconic legacy, we’ve been collaborating with brands to elevate each season of the award-winning culinary competition. This incredible collaboration with Holland America Line will deliver a unique opportunity for fans to see the final four cheftestants get a taste of vacation and fresh fish as they make their journey to see who earns the title of Top Chef.”

Holland America Line guests who want a full Morimoto experience can dine at Morimoto By Sea, the chef’s namesake specialty restaurant aboard Nieuw Amsterdam, or one of the pop-up experiences on the remainder of the fleet.

The menu includes an array of artfully presented dishes and beverages created by Morimoto in a multi-course dinner experience that celebrates the fresh fish program.
