Effective March 14, 2012, pursuant to an order of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Conversion Order”), the Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings of Ambassadors International, Inc.

The Company has been advised that Charles A. Stanziale, Jr. has been appointed Chapter 7 Trustee.
