The Accessibility Advocate – October 2016

October 21, 2016


From the President’s Corner!


I hope everyone is doing well and settled back in the routine of kids back in school.  My son and I are getting there.  On another note, we just had a scare with Hurricane Matthew, but were fortunate to be spared any serious damage.  We hope that those who were hit fared well.

As we can continue to evolve, SNG is always expanding our areas which we are able to service.  Special Needs Group has recently added the port of Mobile, Alabama.  Beginning in November, Mobile will be the homeport of the Carnival Fantasy.  The vessel will feature sailings to Mexico.

Please check our website periodically for updates and any special promotions.

Thank you again for your ongoing support as we continue to work in achieving our mission of Delivering an Accessible World®.


Keep Smilin’,

The Joy on the Beach (J.o.B.) Wheelchair features innovative, air filled balloon wheels that make it easy to roll the on the beach sand (or even snow); the beach wheelchair can also be lowered into a pool or rolled into the ocean.  A companion will need to push the chair as it cannot be self-propelled.

Spotlight:  South Florida

The Port of Miami and Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale service cruise ships sailing out of south Florida.  The seven cruise terminals that service passengers sailing out of Miami are among the most modern in the world.  The Port of Miami terminals are designed to move passengers from land to sea as efficiently as possible.


We are pleased to serve the PortMiami and Port Everglades out of “home office” in Dania Beach.
