Seabourn’s ‘Chefs’ Circle’ Cruises for 2005 Announced

Award-Winning Chefs Gathered From the Four Corners of North America

MIAMI, March 28 /PRNewswire/ — Chef/restaurateur Charlie Palmer and Seabourn Cruise Line have gathered some of the finest practitioners of the culinary arts in North America for the third annual “Chefs’ Circle” series of cruises. The quartet of cuisiniers participating this year command kitchens located almost literally on the four corners of the continent.

Representing the burgeoning Pacific Northwest food scene is Rob Feenie, whose Relais Gourmands flagship Lumiere in Vancouver is unanimously cited on both sides of the border as one of Canada’s finest restaurants. Chef Feenie will join Seabourn Spirit on a seven-day cruise departing Rome on August 28, visiting Capri and Taormina, Italy; Katakolon (Olympia), Itea (Delphi), Corinth Canal and Navplion (Mycenae), Greece.

One of the paragons of South Florida’s red-hot culinary revolution, Robbin Haas has had a talented hand in many of the area’s hottest properties including Baleen and Raku. His latest Latin-inspired eatery is Chispa, Spanish for “spark.” Chef Haas sails on Seabourn Legend on August 28, from Rome to Monte Carlo via Porto Cervo, Sardinia; La Goulette, Tunisia; Palermo, Sorrento, Giannutri Island, Italy; and Nice, France.

Mary Sue Milliken, with her partner Susan Feniger, has provided great food and good fun at their Border Grills in Santa Monica and Las Vegas and the Pan- Latin Ciudad, in Los Angeles. They are also the Food Network’s popular “Too Hot Tamales.” Chef Milliken will join Seabourn Legend on October 2, from Monte Carlo to Barcelona with visits to Le Lavandou and Cannes, France; Menorca, Mallorca and Valencia, Spain.

Anne Desjardins created a charming small hotel and restaurant called L’Eau a la Bouche in the Laurentian village of Ste-Adele, Quebec. Her talent has earned it a coveted membership in Relais Gourmands. Chef Desjardins will join Seabourn Spirit on a November 25 cruise round trip from Singapore to Bangkok and Ko Kood, Thailand; Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; Kuantan and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Each of these guest chefs will give cooking demonstrations and tastings on board, and signature dishes from their repertoires will be served on a special dinner one night in the ship’s open-seating Restaurant. With Early Booking Savings of up to 30 percent, fares for these Chefs’ Circle cruises start from $4,287 per person, based on double occupancy of a 277-square foot ocean-view suite.

Guests on any of these Chefs’ Circle cruises will enjoy an array of thoughtful enhancements to shipboard and shoreside services called Signature Delights that add luxury and value for guests aboard the three 208-guest Yachts of Seabourn: Seabourn Pride, Spirit and Legend. Signature Delights include complimentary service of spirits and wines including French champagne throughout every cruise, gourmet cuisine created by celebrity chef Charlie Palmer, indulgent Pure Pampering therapeutic bathing selections from Molton Brown and an Exclusively Seabourn complimentary shoreside experience on every cruise.

Seabourn has been honored on every Conde Nast Traveler Gold List and placed at the top of the luxury cruise category by readers of such prestigious magazines as Departures, published exclusively for American Express Platinum and Centurion Card members; the United Kingdom newspaper The Telegraph and the annual Travel Star survey of Swiss travel agencies.
