Seabourn Promotes Christopher Prelog to VP
Hotel Operations, Fleet Purchasing

SEATTLE, January 25, 2013
- Seattle-based ultra-luxury cruise line Seabourn has promoted Christopher Prelog to the role of vice president of hotel operations and fleet purchasing. He was previously director of hotel operations.

Prelog was educated in Austria, studying tourism and hospitality management in a five-year course of study. After graduating, he held several positions including restaurant manager and front office manager in Austrian hotels for another five years prior to joining Seabourn. He joined Seabourn in 1998 as an assistant maitre d'hotel. He was in training in 2003 to be an onboard hotel manager when the company invited him to move ashore as fleet hotel operations manager in the company's Miami headquarters. He was promoted to director of hotel operations in 2008.

Announcing the promotion, Seabourn executive vice president of fleet operations Dan Grausz noted, "Chris has firmly guided the Seabourn onboard product; under his guidance the Seabourn product has received the top rating for luxury vessels in Condé Nast Traveler four of the last five years and Travel + Leisure for the last four consecutive years."

Prelog made the transition from Miami to Seattle when the company moved its headquarters in 2011, and now lives in Snoqualmie, Wash., with his wife and two daughters.

Seabourn operates a fleet of six intimate, all-suite ships offering cruise vacations worldwide. The company is consistently ranked among the finest vacation experiences in the world.
