November 4, 2009 (Miami) â€“ The Yachts of Seabourn has been honored with two 2009 Cruise Critic Editorsâ€™ Picks Awards by the discerning staff of Cruise Critic.com, a critically acclaimed interactive community of avid and first-time cruisers. Seabourn brought home â€œBest New Luxury Shipâ€ for the newly launched Seabourn Odyssey, as well as â€œBest Luxury Diningâ€ for the entire four-vessel fleet from Cruise Critic, which can be found online at www.CruiseCritic.com.
The 2009 Cruise Critic Editorsâ€™ Picks Awards are only the latest in a growing list of honors earned by the ultra-luxury Seabourn fleet. For instance, The Yachts of Seabourn was recently hailed as the â€œWorldâ€™s Bestâ€ Small Ship Cruise Line 2009 by readers of Travel + Leisure, while last year it was named â€œBest Small Ship Cruise Lineâ€ by the readers of CondÃ© Nast Traveler. The line was also recognized as the â€œBest Small Ship Cruise Lineâ€ for the second consecutive year by the luxury travel advisors of the Virtuoso travel network in its 2009 Best of the Best Awards.
â€œWeâ€™re honored to receive a pair of Editorsâ€™ Picks Awards from the knowledgeable Cruise Critic editors,â€ said Pamela Conover, President and CEO of The Yachts of Seabourn. â€œThe launch of Seabourn Odyssey has been more positive than we could have imagined in the most challenging season for the cruise industry in years, and the recognition for our dining experience is an honor for our entire culinary staff, as well as for Chef Charlie Palmer, whose creations continue to delight our guests.â€
