cargo ship to Germany

A customer insisted she could take a cargo ship to Germany from Newport Beach. The woman said over and over that her travel agent said it is possible, and that her grandmother made the trip (how long ago I wonder...). Just to amuse myself, I did a little research to convince her that sort of transportation isn't available in the modern day, but she wouldn't believe it.

And why Newport Beach of all places? We're not even close to Newport Beach... Hello, have you heard of airplanes? If the travel agent is so right, then why is she asking me? The line at the reference desk started to grow, and it was like pulling teeth to get the woman to leave.
