Expedia.com and Trump World Magazine Launch Theme Cruise
Expedia.com and Trump World magazine, a
national bimonthly magazine capturing the Trump lifestyle, today announced
the launch of The Apprentice Legend Cruise, the first-ever themed cruise
based on “The Apprentice” reality show. Dara Khosrowshahi, chief executive officer of Expedia and Michael Jacobsen, editor-in-chief and publisher of Trump World magazine announced the news - along with popular season two Apprentice cast members, Stacie J, Jen C, and Raj - at a joint press
conference today at Trump World Bar in New York City.
“I’m thrilled that Expedia’s cruise business is expanding to include
themed cruises like The Apprentice Legend Cruise - it’s fresh, it’s fun,
and it allows us to really tap into the diverse interests of our 18
million customers,” said Dara Khosrowshahi, chief executive officer,
Expedia. “This is a unique travel experience that will appeal to Expedia
customers, Apprentice fans, Trump World readers and, basically, anyone
looking for a travel adventure.”
As producer and lead booking agent, Expedia has developed a custom
program, featuring special events, contests, and “networking”
opportunities during the eight-night tour of the Caribbean that is all
based on the premise of The Apprentice. Cruisers should expect to see
several Apprentice cast members aboard the Carnival Legend cruise ship—
renamed the Trump World Legend for The Apprentice Legend Cruise. The full
list of cast members will be announced in the coming months; however, Raj,
Stacie J., and Jen C from season two have confirmed that they will be on
board to mingle with guests and participate in activities.
“The Apprentice Legend Cruise - like Trump World magazine - gives
Apprentice fans the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with
cast members and get a taste of what the Trump life is all about,” said
Michael Jacobsen, editor-in-chief and publisher, Trump World magazine.
The Apprentice Legend Cruise is going to take passengers on an
unforgettable eight-night voyage through the Caribbean. Departing out of
New York City on September 26, 2005, the cruise will sail through the
Eastern Caribbean with stops in San Juan, Puerto Rico; St. Thomas, U.S.
Virgin Islands; and Tortola, British Virgin Islands before returning to
New York City on October 4, 2005.
