The world is indeed watching and blogging about destination developments, Port St. Maarten Management said: “We have to use this opportunity to make St. Maarten and its people go viral in a positive manner and this is a positive development to showcase our readiness, we are SXMStrong.”
Rotary Club St. Maarten is calling all Service Clubs, Volunteers, Merchants, Philipsburg Workers, Organizations, and basically anyone interested in seeing a better St. Maarten to unite and help get our Island back to the premier cruise destination of the Caribbean.
Port St. Maarten staff will be assisting club volunteers on November 4. “We are a resilient nation and we know what is at stake. Port St. Maarten has been working since 2014 in re-inventing cruise tourism for the country. This cannot be done alone as everybody has a role to play.
“Our country was devastated by Hurricane Irma on September 6. In order to get the country back on track where cruise tourism is concerned, a united effort is required with all hands on deck.
“We have about seven weeks to get things ready and put into place for the first cruise ship visitors. The ball is in our court. Let’s get out on November 4 and make a difference in our community by getting our country ready for the return of the cruise ships in December,” Port St. Maarten Management said on Monday.
