Updated: Conover named SeaDream CEO

By Jerry Limone

PamelaConoverLuxury cruise veteran Pamela Conover was named CEO of SeaDream Yacht Club on Wednesday.

She replaces chairman and owner Atle Brynestad, who said the move frees him up to spend more time on SeaDream’s “long-term planning” and his other businesses.

Conover was the president and CEO of Seabourn Cruises, a line owned by Carnival Corp., a role she took on in 2006. She oversaw a period of expansion at Seabourn in which the cruise line doubled its fleet from three to six ships with the introduction of Seabourn's Odyssey-class vessels.

Conover stepped down as CEO of Seabourn in 2011, when the line moved its headquarters from Miami to Seattle, and became an adviser and "brand ambassador" to the line.

Conover has served in several executive positions at Carnival Corp. since joining that company in 1995, including president and COO of Cunard Line during its introduction of the Queen Mary 2.

Conover will be based in SeaDream’s Miami office.

SeaDream has two 56-stateroom yachts, the SeaDream I and II.

Editor's note: This report was updated Jan. 2 to clarify Conover's most recent position at Seabourn and to include her role at Cunard Line.
