PHILIPSBURG:— The St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF) has joined soca lovers from around the world on the Uber Soca cruise to promote Carnival 2019 “Carnival 50” as well as destination St. Maarten.
Along with the St. Maarten Tourist Bureau (STB) and many other persons and partners from St. Maarten and French St. Maarten, the SCDF will seek to build long-standing relationships in the region that could lead to beneficial partnerships for the further growth of Carnival.
The very popular cruise not only attracts Soca music and Carnival lovers, but key power players in the industry. Festivals throughout the Caribbean have a presence on the cruise. SCDF not only have representatives present, but a Carnival video is being played on screens aboard the ship, there are signage and other material to leave an impression. The foundation members also took part is a presentation for St. Maarten and St. Maarten Carnival.
“Attending Uber Soca cruises is something we have always targeted. It’s a positive step that we can do so in collaboration with the STB since Carnival ties into what STB’s core objective is, and that is to promote and attract people to destination St. Maarten. We are also joined by many St. Maarteners, some who live on St. Maarten others who live elsewhere. We wave our flags proudly and of course we fete the way we fete. We plan on taking full advantage of every opportunity,” President of the SCDF Alston Lourens said.
Uber Soca Cruise is the largest Soca festival at sea, the 5-day, 4-Night cruise experience fuses the energy and excitement of Carnival with the feel of a luxury cruise to create an experience beyond music. It features non-stop Soca fetes and the best Soca entertainers in the world.
