Seabourn Spirit Again Tops Conde Nast Traveler Poll

Yacht-Like Ship Earns Perfect Scores for Itineraries, Service, Value

MIAMI, Jan. 24
The intimate, all-suite Seabourn Spirit is once again the
highest-rated cruise ship in the world in the 2005 Conde Nast Traveler
Readers' Poll. The ultra luxury ship was awarded the same title in the
2003 poll. Spirit's overall score of 97.7 was bolstered by perfect
scores of 100 in the categories of "Itineraries" and "Crew/Service."
In addition, the magazine's readers rated the ship's value as
"Excellent."

Spirit's identical sisters, Seabourn Pride and Seabourn Legend, shared
the spotlight with admirable scores in their own rights. Pride earned
a perfect 100 for "Crew/Service" and Legend took the top spot in the
small ship category for "Food/Dining," barely edging ahead of
second-place Spirit by two-tenths of a point.

"We are very proud of the recognition our ships' staffs have earned
from the readers of Conde Nast Traveler," said Deborah L. Natansohn,
Seabourn's president. "We concentrate on the guests' experience, and
on delivering service, style and value," she continued. "That's
clearly what Conde Nast Traveler's readers appreciate."

The latest win is added to a list of honors the ultra luxury line has
received in the past months. Seabourn was the highest-rated cruise
line in a recent Luxury Poll of readers of Departures, a travel
magazine published exclusively for American Express Platinum and
Centurion cardmembers. The line also scored overseas, taking top
honors from the readers of the U.K. newspaper The Telegraph and the
Swiss Travel Star Gold award, based on a survey of Swiss travel
agencies. In addition, Seabourn earned the coveted Five Star Diamond
Award from the American Institute of Hospitality Sciences for the
eleventh consecutive year.

The three ships, carrying just 208 guests each, perennially occupy the
upper ranks of ratings in guidebooks, newspapers, magazines and other
publications.

No, Tom I haven't. Certainly wish I had the opportunity in the future. They are on my wish list of ships yet to experience.
