Caribbean Cruise:   Oct 21 – 28, 2018   |   Roundtrip Ft. Lauderdale   |   ms Nieuw Amsterdam

Dear Submariners, family and friends,

2018 brings a unique opportunity to combine the 55th annual USSVI National Convention with a fabulous Caribbean cruise! We'll sail on Holland America Line's beautiful ms Nieuw Amsterdam, round trip out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida!

It's been 10 long years since we sailed to Alaska in 2007. 1,800 Submariners, their families and friends had a wonderful cruise convention and it's high time we did this again! We will be able to conduct all normal convention activities on board ship, which include meetings, a vendor room, hospitality rooms, the Tolling of the Boats ceremony and boat reunions. There are many other special events planned as well. You'll enjoy Broadway style entertainment, a Las Vegas style casino, a full service spa and many other wonderful opportunities for relaxation and fun.

You'll enjoy liberty in some of the Caribbean's most beautiful ports including Holland America's award winning private island, Half Moon Cay! There is something new and wonderful awaiting you in every port of call and you'll be able to relax and enjoy the ride as AAA Travel and Holland America Cruise Line make sure that you experience smooth sailing! What a great way to take a break from everyday life while enjoying 5-star service and the company of your shipmates, family and friends!

This trip will sell out fast, so book early! We have had a list of Submariners interested in booking this trip even before it was organized, and quite a few that have already signed up. Bring a friend, your spouse or your family, all are welcome to join us and with so many wonderful activities, there is something for everyone on this trip of a lifetime! Don't miss the boat. Join your shipmates onboard for the 2018 USSVI National Convention!

Best wishes,

The USSVI National Board of Directors and
