IS LAST EVENT EVER ALLOWED IN THE SITE

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL., April 6, 2005 - On the eve of April 3, 2005 in Luxor, Egypt, World Cruise guests on the Seven Seas Voyager® were not only treated to an ultra-exclusive private dinner inside the pillars of the ancient temple of Luxor, but had the honor of being among the very last visitors ever to be part of such an event, as the area inside the site is now not available for private functions.

Full cruise guests of Radisson Seven Seas’® 108-night global circumnavigation enjoyed lavish food and drink while eminent guest of honor Dr. Zahi Hawas, secretary general of The Supreme Council of Antiquities & director of excavations at Giza, made a speech discussing the significance of this last event allowed within the temple, as well as the highlights of his recent desert findings and latest work on the mummy of Tutankhamen.

Previously, only functions hosted by the government were permitted within the magnificent courtyard of pillars, but an exception was made for the Seven Seas Voyager World Cruisers. Normally - and from now on - events can only take place on the side of the temple or in the front courtyard.

Guests were escorted down the avenue of Sphinx, dramatically lit and guarded by flaming torches carried by costumed bearers. After enjoying cocktails adjacent to the illuminated temple, all entered the magnificent colonnade where tables dressed in white and gold linen were adorned by flickering candles, and the gloriously lit pillars formed a dramatic backdrop on three sides. Turbaned waiters in traditional Egyptian dress served a four-course dinner as music from a classical quartet filled the night air.

The once-in-a-lifetime excursion was topped off with an overnight in a deluxe Luxor hotel and sightseeing on the west bank of the storied Nile River the following day.

This “Dinner Among the Pillars of Luxor” is one of four exclusive complimentary shoreside events for full Radisson Seven Seas World Cruise guests. Seven additional events are included for all segment guests.
