Seabourn, Conde Nast Traveler to Create ‘Conde Nast Traveler’s Seabourn Insider Tips’

Exclusive Port Information from the World’s Most Influential Travel Magazine

MIAMI, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ — Ultra luxury cruise pioneer Seabourn Cruise Line will team up with Conde Nast Traveler to provide the line’s guests with exclusive, up-to-date information about what’s new, what’s hot and what’s hip in various ports of call, gathered from the pages of the magazine. The innovative complimentary service will be introduced in April 2006, when the line’s three all-suite ships begin their European cruising season.

Dubbed “Conde Nast Traveler’s Seabourn Insider Tips,” the service will provide expert information from the world’s most influential travel magazine, highlighting recommended attractions, suggested lunch spots, popular bars, unique experiences, shopping tips and more, produced in the form of easy-to- carry flyers. The Seabourn Insider Tips service is designed to augment the menu of exclusive shore excursions offered by the line in every port of call, and to offer reliable intelligence for guests who wish to customize their own port activities through the ships’ onboard concierge services.

“Seabourn’s guests are sophisticated travelers, who utilize a lot of resources when they visit a destination,” said Deborah L. Natansohn, Seabourn’s president. “This intelligence from Conde Nast Traveler’s experts will give them unique insights that can help guide them to enriching and fun experiences they might otherwise miss.”

The initial editions of Conde Nast Traveler’s Seabourn Insider Tips will include information about 28 European ports of call, focusing on ports that the line visits often and where the ships’ itineraries provide extended stays. Among the first ports featured will be Barcelona, Spain; Istanbul, Turkey; The French Riviera; Capri, Rome, Venice, Italy; the Greek Isles of Mykonos, Santorini and Corfu; Stockholm, Sweden; Oslo, Norway; St. Petersburg, Russia and Copenhagen, Denmark. The program will eventually be expanded to include ports in other sailing regions.

Conde Nast Traveler’s Seabourn Insider Tips is the latest in a series of enhancements and upgrades to Seabourn’s Signature Delights: a myriad of thoughtful touches and pampering plusses that have earned the line a spot on every annual edition of Conde Nast Traveler’s prestigious Gold List. Recent additions include Vintage Seabourn, a premium wines pre-purchase package; Seabourn to a Tea, an upgraded menu of rare estate teas, unique blends and herbal tisanes being served on board; Seabourn’s Personal Shopper service providing luxury cars and specialized shopping guides in various ports worldwide; WorldPhone global cell and satellite telephone rental services, and Seabourn’s innovative Personal Valet luggage shipping service.
