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.  

Be sure to look below for pictures from our 10 Year Anniversary celebration.

 

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.

Keep Smilin',

 

Andrew J. Garnett, CATA
President/CEO

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.
