Not everyone is bailing on Paula Deen these days: Alice Travel, the organizers of Paula Deen Cruises, tells Eater "Due to the amazing response we've had in the past years from Paula's fans, we are actually planning 2 Paula Deen Cruises for 2014." That means that, instead of dropping her like a hot Smithfield ham, Alice Travel is actually ordering up more Paula Deen. To quote a spokesperson, "If Paula goes, we go with her and from what we are hearing, so are her fans."

Previous Paula Deen Cruises have been held on Celebrity Cruise ships. A spokesperson for the cruise line told Eater: "Celebrity has never had a partnership or any formal association with Paula Deen. She has sailed with the brand a couple of times, but as host of group cruises, and each time, the groups were booked through a specific travel agency, not through Celebrity." Below, Alice Travel's full statement:

Due to the amazing response we've had in the past years from Paula's fans, we are actually planning 2 Paula Deen Cruises for 2014.

In the 5 years that I have been working with Paula and her staff it has been an amazing journey. I listen to so many people telling Paula their stories of how she inspired them when they were going through bad times. I had the same experience, so I understand.

If Paula goes, we go with her and from what we are hearing, so are her fans.

Kindest Regards,

Phyllis Loverdi
Vice President
