Apple Co-Founder Joins Australian Seabourn Cruise

July 9, 2014 Cruise Deals No Comments Email Email

Australians will have the chance to cruise with one of the founders of Apple when Steve Wozniak joins Seabourn Odyssey’s Christmas cruise from Sydney to Auckland in December as a guest speaker.

The 16-day itinerary departing Sydney on December 21, 2014, is priced from $8999* per person including a complimentary upgrade to a veranda suite.

During the voyage, the co-founder (with the late Steve Jobs) of Apple Computer Inc. will share insights from his life as part of the cruise line’s onboard enrichment and special guest entertainment program Seabourn Conversations.

Wozniak designed the hardware, circuit board designs and operating system for the Apple I personal computer and was awarded the National Medal of Technology, the highest honour bestowed on America’s leading innovators, by President Reagan in 1985. He was inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame in 2000, and in 2006, released his New York Times-bestselling autobiography, iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon: How I invented the Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple and Had Fun Doing It.

“The art of conversation is a key element onboard our ships, and nowhere will the chatter be more ardent than on Seabourn Odyssey when Steve Wozniak starts the dialogue,” Seabourn Senior Vice President, Marketing and Sales John Delaney said.

The 32,000-tonne Seabourn Odyssey will head down under for a summer of cruising from December 21, 2014, to February 23, 2015 with the US$300 million ship scheduled to make 18 calls to Australian ports.

Seabourn’s intimate, award-winning ships offer key elements that set Seabourn apart: spacious, thoughtfully appointed suites, many with verandas; superb dining in a choice of venues; open bars throughout the ship; fine wines poured at lunch and dinner; award-winning personalised service and a relaxed, sociable atmosphere that makes guests feel right at home on board.

Seabourn’s ships circle the globe throughout the year, sailing to the world’s most desirable destinations at their peak seasons including marquee cities and lesser-known yachting harbours and hideaways that few travellers ever see. All-inclusive fares offer tremendous value for one of the world’s finest travel experiences.

*All fares are in Australian dollars, for new bookings only, per guest, double occupancy, and subject to availability.
