NBC Universal and Celebrity Cruises have just unveiled a brand-new partnership, kicking off with a taping of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” shot on Celebrity Beyond on October 25th in Cape Liberty, NJ. Celebrity Beyond is the third ship from the brand’s Edge Series.
In a first-of-its-kind taping for the show, Andy Cohen and all five captains from Bravo’s successful “Below Deck” franchise – including Captain Lee Rosbach, Captain Sandy Yawn, Captain Glenn Shepard, Captain Jason Chambers, and Captain Kerry Titheradge – boarded the ship for an evening full of cocktails, games, and celebrating. The episode aired on Tuesday, November 1 at 10 pm Eastern, following the series premiere of “Below Deck Adventure”on Bravo and is now available for streaming on Peacock. In addition to the Below Deck captains, Celebrity Beyond’s Captain Kate McCue made an appearance and hosted a nautical inspired game during the episode:
“It’s such an exciting opportunity to partner with Celebrity Cruises and shoot a very special episode of the show on its new ‘Celebrity Beyond’ ship,” said Andy Cohen, Host and Executive Producer, Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. “I mean, I cannot think of a more iconic way to celebrate and bring to life the spirit of our very own, Bravo’s Below Deck – than by channeling my inner Captain at sea!”
“The partnership opportunity with NBC Universal and Bravo was meant to be from the start. We both wanted to do something that hadn’t been done on a cruise ship before, so using our newest ship, Celebrity Beyond, as the backdrop, filming Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on our ship was the perfect opportunity,” said Celebrity Cruises’ Chief Marketing Officer Michael Scheiner. “Leveraging the fanfare of the show along with our own content to use in advertising across NBC Universal really gives us a great opportunity to market our brand.”
