It's time to waterproof the shotski, because Andy Cohen is bringing his show on the water. 

On Tuesday, NBCUniversal and Celebrity Cruises announced that's the late night Bravo show, "Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen" will be taping a special episode on board the cruise line's Celebrity Beyond ship.

For the episode, captains from the network's hit franchise "Below Deck" including Captain Lee Rosbach, Captain Sandy Yawn, Captain Glenn Shepard, Captain Jason Chambers, and Captain Kerry Titheradge will be guests, according to the press release. The episode is set to air on Tuesday, immediately following the premiere of "Below Deck Adventure."

"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," Cohen shared in a statement. "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!" 

In addition to the famous television captains, Celebrity's own Captain, Kate McCue (who happens to be America's first female cruise ship captain) will participate in a nautical-inspired game with fellow Captains of "Below Deck" during the taping. Plus, McCue will play bartender for the Twitter After Show. 

"The partnership opportunity with NBCUniversal 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," Michael Scheiner, Celebrity Cruises' chief marketing officer, added. "Leveraging the fanfare of the show along with our own content to use in advertising across NBCUniversal really gives us a great opportunity to market our brand." 

Though you may not be able to hop aboard for the taping, you can still enjoy a cruise just like Cohen. Celebrity Beyond is slated for sailings across the Caribbean this fall and spring and heading to Italy and the Greek Islands in 2023. The only difference is, on your cruise, there will likely be far less made-for-TV drama.
