The Accessibility Advocate - March 2017
March 27, 2017
From the President's Corner!
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.
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 all of you who have 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.
I want to rent a Power Chair, what do I need to know?
Power chairs are a wonderful option for someone who is an at home user of a power chair with much practice on how to maneuver it. We do not rent power chairs to anyone who does not use one at home.
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. The cruise and ferry terminals were modernized with more efficient check in buildings, new entrance gates and wheelchair friendly terminals.
