Radisson Seven Seas refutes reports of ship sale

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Radisson Seven Seas Cruises president Mark Conroy is crying foul after news reports claiming expedition cruise specialist Society Expeditions purchased Radisson's 180-passenger Song of Flower appeared in the U.S. and Europe.

Without identifying the publication or source of the reports, Conroy said in a statement he was "shocked" to learn of "false information contained in a news release issued late last month by Society Expeditions in the U.S. and Europe."

Conroy said Radisson was negotiating to sell the ship to Society after company officials approached Radisson following an accident that severely damaged another Society ship last month.

But by jumping the gun, "Society Expeditions has already damaged and impaired very important Radisson Seven Seas relationships in the special interest and affinity group market we both serve," said Conroy.

He said Radisson has broken off negotiations with Society.
