Default Gordon Ramsey should do Hells Kitchen from ships in the cruise fleet

I think it would really be a neat TV show to have Gordon Ramsey doing his new series on ships from each cruise line. First all he would add excitment to the cruise. As he screamed foul words at the chefs and randomlly tasted food and threw it on the deck if he didn't like it. He might even want to do these special cooking classes for cruisemates and really let them know when they messed up. Second, it would be great entertainment - I love to watch him going through his rants and ravings even though they are put on. Third, it may lead to improved menus as he adds his brilliance to the cuisine offered on the ship's menus. Finally, it would help him to put out a new series that will grab the attention of the TV audience. It would also help the cruise industry get positive exposure.

Default Hells Kitchen and Asti Night on Cruise Ships

In addition to Gordon Ramsey on ships of the cruise fleet There should be an Astis' night on each ship.

Asti - one of New York's most beloved and treasured restaurants where waiters broke into arias. Astis has gone the way of other New York in stitutions as Lüchow's and Mama Leone's.


Every night, the restaurant resounded with the sounds of Italian opera and song. On the ships now they make an attempt to do this by having the servers and chefs do the traditional "O Sole Mio" procession
On Astis night, the servers would have a chance to showcase there talents by doing a medley from "Carmen," during which one of the waiters, wearing a cow's head, cavorts while another sings "The Toreador Song. Audience particiipation is encouraged as cruisemates dress in monks' hoods and parade among the tables to the strains of Verdi's "Il Trovatore."

Astis night could be a lot of fun and combined with Gordon Ramsey running around singing an aria while he threw food at the chefs it would be hilarious

Default Paper mache plaster of paris cows head not real cow head

Cows head is made of plastic or paper mache and plaster. Although now that you bring it up this might be an item that Gordon could use in his Kitchen.

I have hosted two Cruisemate culinary cruises with Matt Sigal, from the 4th season of Hell 's Kitchen. The demo 's were great! Now Chef Ramsey, might make some want to jump overboard! Lol

I can testify it was an amazing time!

Good point, at least the people who tried the cooking demo's were not getting yelled at!

Didn't they do one of these chef shows on a princess ship last year. The established chef had to make a menu and feed everyone the same day, or something like that.
