FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To further its commitment to "Delivering an Accessible World," Special Needs Group (SNG) has upgraded its Web portal to feature an unparalleled, comprehensive one-stop cruise line accessibility content resource. It is the most robust content resource detailing accessibility features available in the cruise industry.

Along with its partners at Norwegian Cruise Line, the company recently launched its ship accessibility portal at, which features in-depth accessibility information about all ships in the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet. Throughout the second and third quarters of 2013, SNG will continue to add ships/cruise lines to the portal until all ships with accessible features utilized by the North American market have been included.

SNG President and CEO Andrew Garnett said, "Part of our corporate responsibility includes educating travel professionals, as well as the traveling public, how the freedom of travel is more readily available now than ever before," continued Garnett. "We have made great progress, but our mission is far from complete. We believe that by creating and providing access to relevant content, most of which is informational as opposed to commercially driven, we will accelerate this goal."

In addition, earlier in 2013, SNG introduced three collateral assets – Ship Accessibility Checklist™, Mobility Scooter/Power Chair Etiquette™, and Scooter/Power Chair Do's and Don'ts™ – to better assist professional travel agents to serve Americans with disabilities and special needs. Each of the resources can be found in the Travel Agent section of the company's website at
