News from Andy’s Desk!
Dear Travel Partners,
Hope everyone is adjusting to daylight savings time and have been able to convince the kiddos to wake up even though it is still dark outside! The additional hour of sunlight will be nice at the end of the day once we are well adjusted.
We are looking forward to seeing you at upcoming events this year, including CLIA Cruise360 being held April 18 – 24 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center. Please check the “On the Road Again” section within the newsletter for additional events in which SNG will be present. Our next Webinar is scheduled for April 12th at 3 PM. Register here.
As the winter season nears closing, we are preparing for the openings of the ports in Seattle and Vancouver in April. Also in April, SNG is pleased to once again be able to provide service in Vancouver, Washington for the American Steamboat Company and in Portland, Oregon for American Cruise Line.
We appreciate your partnership which has enabled SNG to accomplish many milestones over the last decade and we look forward to a bright future. Thank you for making it possible to achieve our motto of Delivering an Accessible World.

New for 2017: Silversea Silver Muse
Silversea’s Silver Muse will make its maiden voyage on April 10th when the boutique ship embarks on an eight day sailing round trip from Monte Carlo, Monaco. The cruise line’s newest flagship of the fleet combines sophisticated Italian design with Silversea’s world-renowned ultra-luxury. The boutique-sized Silver Muse enables the 596-guest vessel the ability to visit ports which large cruise ships do not have the ability of accessing.

Spotlight: Piraeus (Athens)
The Port of Piraeus is one of the largest in Europe and the main port in Athens, Greece with about 18.6 million passengers in 2014. The 2004 Olympics hosted in Athens provided major improvements to the city, including Piraeus, still reflected today.
