The Yachts of Seabourn is delivering a special gift for guests sailing on Seabourn Sojourn’s 2010 holiday cruise. Multiple Emmy award-winning television and film director Terry Hughes will appear as a special guest during the “Christmas & New Year’s Sojourn” voyage departing Dec. 20, 2010, from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to Los Angeles.
During the 16-day cruise, Hughes will share hilarious highlights from his experiences on some of television’s longest-running and most popular comedy shows.
After an award-studded career producing and directing British television and stage comedies in the U.K., Hughes moved to Los Angeles in 1980. He soon became one of the premier producers and directors of many hit television comedy programs, including The Golden Girls, where he garnered six Emmy nominations and two wins, as well as 3rd Rock from the Sun, and episodes of 8 Simple Rules, Friends, Blossom and That 70s Show.
In addition to comedy, Hughes has also directed many television musicals, such as Sweeney Todd, for which he received another Emmy, Sunday in the Park with George, Barnum, and Mrs. Santa Claus. He also directed several feature films, including The Butcher’s Wife and Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl.
Seabourn Sojourn’s holiday cruise includes a transit through the Panama Canal, and visits Cartagena, Colombia; Caldera, Costa Rica; Puerto Chiapas, Huatulco, and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; and San Diego, Calif.
