Seabourn Quest guests were entranced recently when Tony Mendez, the ex-CIA operative whose exploits inspired the film “Argo,” sailed as a part of the Seabourn Conversations enrichment and entertainment program. Just a few days prior to embarking on Quest, Mr. Mendez received an award from the United States President Barack Obama at the White House. Cruise Director Handré Potgieter reports that Mr. Mendez and his wife Jonna (also an ex-CIA operative) held the Grand Salon audience rapt with their insider’s tales of the hidden world of espionage and subterfuge. Quest guests also enjoyed a spirited Q & A session with the couple.
