Both Seabourn and Cunard have had quite the rides - revolving doors for CEOs and headquarters.

First Cunard was in New York, then in Cailifornia with Princess and now they are in Miami.

Seabourn has been part of Cunard, then independent, and now it looks it is going more under the Holland Umbrella - just like Windstar was.

Seabourn expanded VERY quickly and I knew it would take a smart CEO to manage this growth. I wounder what is prompting this change at Carnival Corp. that they feel the line will do better in Seattle rather than close to home in Miami.

They must feel the line will get more attention in Seattle than it will in Miani, but moving to Seattle is a big cultural change from Miami.
