Highlighting the fact that they do not advertise with The Montserrat Reporter, the report states as follows: “Following months of promotions on Radio Montserrat (ZJB), ZDK Radio in Antigua and social media posts, 130 persons registered for the day trip.  87 of those registered took to the seas, via MV Jaden Sun, alongside Marketing Officer in the Tourism Division, Cherise Aymer and a Nurse Nadine Sweeney from the Glendon Hospital.

While in Guadeloupe, there was a plaque exchange between a representative of the Mayor of Pointe a Pitre, Cherise Aymer and Captain Elvis Gooding of MV Jaden Sun.  As part of the activities, some persons had pre-arranged tours to the Botanical Gardens, Rum Factory and Waterfall, Rainforest, the Zoo and Chocolate factory. Meanwhile, others chose to explore Pointe a Pitre city on their own, where they took in the sites, cultural performances and retail therapy.

Based on feedback survey forms completed by the passengers on board the ferry 63% of the responders expressed that they had a good experience on the Jaden Sun and the service provided by the crew.  All passengers that completed the survey commented that they would participate in another day excursion organised by the Access Division.  Although the majority of persons are requesting a follow-up overnight trip in the near future to Basse-Terre, Guadeloupe, there is also a huge demand for visits to St. Maarten or Martinique.

The journey took approximately four (4) hours each way.

The Access Division expresses heartfelt gratitude to the authorities in Pointe a Pitre, Montserrat Border controls, the Ministry of Health, Captain and crew of MV Jaden Sun and all of our valued customers who made this day trip possible.”

In an observation and following up on TMR’s earlier questions and suggestion we wonder how many readers of TMR both online and in print did not know of the trip to Guadeloupe. Meanwhile among other queries, how come with the huge St. Kitts/Nevis support of festivals in Montserrat, no reciprocity is offered when St. Kitts/Nevis are having their festivals for residents in Montserrat and Antigua to take a trip to celebrate with the neighbors across the waters.
