When you disembark from your voyage, it’s not the end of your journey with SAS — it’s only the beginning! The voyage continues within each one of us and in each of our lives as we go out into the world as connected and engaged global citizens. From the moment you step off the gangway, you’re officially a lifetime member of the SAS Alumni Association.
