Thank you for your interest in The Yachts of Seabourn. We are a

and sales activities, as well as properly serving those guests before
they embark on our vessels, while they are in our care, and after

also involves protecting, transporting, accommodating, feeding,
and entertaining those guests, as well as providing opportunities       on a n in it ia t i ve ...to

the aim of managing our company for long-term sustainability.

    O U r E M Pl Oy EE S            Operating an ultra-luxury service organization requires a passion for
                                    excellence. Identifying, nurturing and rewarding that passion is a key part
                                    of Seabourn’s interaction with its employees. Aside from meeting the
                                    standard human resources needs, Seabourn works to ensure that all
                                    employees are familiar with, and share the company’s vision and mission.


    O U r GU E S T S                Seabourn enjoys an unusually strong bond with its guests. Guest
                                    satisfaction is measured systematically and regularly. The majority of
                                    our guests book their cruises through a professional travel agent. Thus
                                    the agency community is in many ways our first customer. Decisions about
                                    marketing initiatives, sales policies and even onboard product design
                                    must take into account not only the end user, but also the agents who
                                    interpret the value of our services to their clients. In recent years, we have
                                    constantly expanded the means by which we communicate with both
                                    agents and guests, including subscribed email messages, on our own
                                    website, and social media including a blog, Facebook, Twitter and other
                                    channels. Returning past guests constitute over half of our annual
                                    business, and nearly a third of them book their next Seabourn voyage
                                    while they are still on board. This provides us with permission to continue
                                    communications with them. Recent sponsored surveys of first-time guests
                                    revealed an exceptionally high satisfaction rate and a very high rate of
                                    referral. Interviewed guests reported that they told an average of 30
                                    people about their Seabourn cruise experience.


    CO r P O r AT E                 As an operating brand of Carnival Corporation & plc, the world’s largest
    Sh A r Eh O l d Er S            cruise company, Seabourn is responsible to the Corporation’s
                                    shareholders for its performance. Business decisions and policies are to
                                    some extent affected by this relationship, which is subject to certain
                                    regulations.
                                                                  SE ABOURN’ S SUS TAINABILIT Y REPORT          7




O U r SU PPl I Er S              Seabourn endeavors to maintain long-term relationships with suppliers
                                 as a means to ensure consistent delivery of the onboard experience. This
                                 often entails a certain learning curve as suppliers become familiar with
                                 the standards and procedures we require to operate in the ultra luxury
                                 segment. Thus it is in our interest to maintain established relationships so
                                 long as they deliver the required goods and services and remain
                                 competitively priced. Seabourn does enjoy substantial benefits with
                                 certain suppliers as a part of the larger Carnival Corporation structure.


NGOS                             Special interest groups exist which have a particular focus on a number of
                                 areas in which we operate. We understand that these groups have an
                                 interest in our activities and plans. We endeavor to satisfy that interest,
                                 not least by the creation and publication of this and subsequent reports
                                 on our achievements and progress toward sustainability.


r EGU l AT O ry b O d I E S      Seabourn is subject to regulation and monitoring by a number of local,
(I N T Er N AT I O N A l ,       national and international regulatory bodies. Seabourn’s standard
N AT I O N A l , S TAT E A N d   operating procedures are established to meet or exceed the guidelines
lOC Al)                          and requirements of these entities at all times on board. For instance, the
                                 standards utilized by the United States Public Health Service for food
                                 handling are maintained at all times even though our vessels operate
                                 mainly outside the United States and may only infrequently be inspected
                                 by that body.


l O C A l C O M MU N I T I E S   Inbound tourism creates manifold effects within a community. There are
Wh Er E WE O PEr AT E            positive economic effects from the employment of local businesses such
                                 as the port contractors, tour operators, retail and service providers. There
                                 are often benefits to the government in terms of taxes, fees and other
                                 levees. There are corresponding pressures on the community to provide
                                 security, manage traffic, and absorb increased activity that exceeds the
                                 norm. While the size of our vessels and the limited guest capacities have
                                 much less effect on a community than does a larger vessel in communities
                                 where larger vessels often call, we also visit ports where we are either the
                                 sole or one of the very few vessels calling in a year. Thus it is incumbent
                                 upon us to ensure that we communicate with the community stakeholders,
                                 are aware of and sensitive to their issues, and that we create and maintain
                                 a relationship of goodwill with them. It is our intention to operate in such
                                 a way that our visits to every community where we operate will create a
                                 net benefit to the community.

The Yachts of Seabourn is a pioneer of ultra-luxury cruising that has earned
unanimous accolades from cruising guidebooks, travel critics and traveler polls
since its launch in 1987. With three identical, all-suite vessels touring the globe
– and three new vessels on the way – Seabourn has earned a reputation for
extraordinary levels of personalized service, with nearly one staff member per
guest; sumptuous accommodations in spacious suites, many with balconies;
exceptional shoreside experiences in the world’s most desirable destinations
and award-winning cuisine served in open-seating restaurants.


Seabourn Cruise Line Ltd. is an operating line within the Carnival Corporation
& plc (NYSE and LSE: CCL; LSE: CLUk). Seabourn markets, sells, and operates
cruises calling at over 250 ports in 68 countries on six continents.


ThE flEE T
Carrying just 208 guests each, the three Yachts of Seabourn – Seabourn Pride,
Spirit and Legend – offer a wealth of onboard touches and luxuries to
assure smooth sailing whatever the destination. Guests can look forward                              Captain karlo buer

to spacious accommodations of 277 square feet or more, 40	percent with
balconies; complimentary wines and spirits throughout each cruise; innovative
Massage Moments on deck; festive Caviar in the Surf beach parties; designer
soaps, molton Brown toiletries and Pure Pampering therapeutic bath menu
– and all of the above with no tipping required or expected.


With the addition of Seabourn Odyssey, the line’s 450-guest new yacht launched
in June 2009, guests are able to enjoy the same exceptional levels of service that
distinguish the Seabourn brand with the added amenities and features made
possible by a larger vessel. Two additional new-builds of the same class are to
be added to the fleet. Seabourn Sojourn debuted in 2010 and Seabourn Quest
will join in 2011. All vessels are registered in the Bahamas.

       To its core, Seabourn is based on a culture of service. The anticipation, recognition
       and fulfillment of customers’ desires and expectations are the key tenets of the
       company’s mission and its modus operandi. Employees are recruited, trained,
       and managed to cultivate this service ethic. For a certain type of hospitality
       professional, one who possesses a passion for excellence, this provides a very
       challenging and satisfying work environment. Those who find this culture
       stimulating often remain with the company for extended periods. For example,
       see Chris Prelog’s story on page 26. Seabourn encourages employee retention
       by providing ongoing training, subsidized specialty education during
       off-contract periods, and leadership and advancement opportunities within
       the organization.
