The Yachts Of Seabourn Receives Three Readers’ Choice Awards From Porthole Cruise Magazine

Newspapers

MIAMI, November 20, 2009—-The Yachts of Seabourn has again been honored by readers of Porthole Cruise Magazine, winning three categories in the magazine’s 11th Annual Porthole Readers’ Choice Awards. The ultra luxury cruise line was recognized as the ”Best Luxury Line,” and for having the “Best Small Ship (Seabourn Legend),” and “Best Accommodations.” Porthole’s readers also honored Seabourn last year for Best Accommodations.

The Readers’ Choice Awards were based on a survey about cruise lines and their onboard amenities, services and itineraries. Several thousand readers responded to the survey by completing mail-in ballots or visiting Porthole’s website at www.porthole.com. The list of winners is currently available online and also appears in the magazine’s November/December 2009 issue.

“We are proud to receive these distinctions from Porthole’s savvy readers,” said Pamela Conover, president and CEO of The Yachts of Seabourn. “Taken together, these honors speak volumes about our entire staff – both at sea and ashore – and their consistent ability to provide a top-quality, personalized travel experience to our guests aboard the Seabourn yachts.”

“The Yachts of Seabourn is first-class all the way,” said Bill Panoff, publisher and editor-in-chief of Porthole Cruise Magazine, the leading consumer cruise magazine. “Our experienced readers clearly recognize this, honoring the line’s ships, accommodations, and overall sense of luxury.”

The 2009 Readers’ Choice Awards are the latest accolades bestowed upon the company’s four intimate cruising vessels. The Yachts of Seabourn has consistently received top honors from a number of well-respected and discerning travel publications and experts, including Travel + Leisure, Condé Nast Traveler, Cruise Critic and the Virtuoso Travel Network.
