Default *XANTERRA buys SEABOURN cruise ships*

Steamboating colleagues:
Anounced on February 19th that XANTERRA PARKS & RESORTS [Remember them?] have purchased three luxury yachts from SEABOURN CRUISES, doubling XANTERRA'S 'Windstar fleet.' The two year process will end in 2014 with full ownership. SEABOURN is a unit of the now troubled CARNIVAL CORP. as was WINDSTAR until 2007. The three acquired top dollar, lower passenger capacity luxury ships are the first not to have sails. No dollar amount was disclosed. XANTERRA also acquired the Grand Canyon-area Grand Hotel and Vermont Bicycling and Walking Vacations. These plans also include offerings in North america, Europe, Central America and Asia. "...further diversifying our leisure travel holding," said XANTERRA CEO Andrew Todd.

Other business news in the realm indicates Congress--and other European countries--calling for full investigation of the late CARNIVAL indicent off Mexico. Back-up systems in propulsion, electricity, water etc. to be considered. No word on any out-fall for passenger vessels on U.S. rivers, lakes. Not 'pure steamboats'...but. Well, what do I know?
