(12 p.m. EST) -- For a third year, MasterChef fans can sail with their favorite stars for a week of culinary competition.

The hit TV series' official theme cruise will kick off November 12, 2017 on Holland America's Eurodam and feature a lineup of Season 7 and past winners. Shaun O'Neale (Season 7 winner), Brandi Mudd (Season 7 finalist), Claudia Sandoval (Season 6 winner) and Luca Manfe (Season 4 winner) will host a series of themed activities, including Mystery Box and cooking demos. The MasterChef stars also will recreate dishes from the show for passengers to try.

More activities, as well as opportunities to meet the stars, will be revealed in the near future.

Past MasterChef cruise activities have included Taste Test Trivia, which allowed fans to test their taste buds behind a blindfold and the Cupcake Tower Battle, which challenged passengers to build the ultimate cupcake tower in less than 30 minutes.

The cruise will sail roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale and visit Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Maarten and Holland America's private island, Half Moon Cay.
