Seabourn Cruise Line To Add Insider Tips

Seabourn Cruise Line will team up with Conde Nast Traveler to provide the line's guests with exclusive information about what's new, what's hot and what's hip in various ports of call. The free service will begin in April 2006, when the line's three all-suite ships begin their European cruising season. Dubbed "Conde Nast Traveler's Seabourn Insider Tips," the service will provide expert information, highlight recommended attractions, and suggest lunch spots, popular bars, unique experiences, shopping tips and more, produced in the form of easy-to-carry flyers. The Seabourn Insider Tips service is designed to augment the menu of Seabourn's shore excursions and to offer reliable intelligence for guests who wish to customize their own port activities. The initial edition of Insider Tips will include information about 28 European ports of call, focusing on ports that the line visits often and places where the ships' itineraries provide extended stays. Among the first ports featured will be Barcelona, Spain; Istanbul, Turkey; The French Riviera; Capri, Rome, Venice, Italy; the Greek Isles of Mykonos, Santorini and Corfu; Stockholm, Sweden; Oslo, Norway; St. Petersburg, Russia; and Copenhagen, Denmark. The program will eventually be expanded to include ports in other sailing regions.
