PHILIPSBURG – September 17 is allocated as International Coastal Cleanup Day, and Carnival Cruise Line’s vessel, Carnival Fascination, gave back to the St. Maarten community via a beach cleanup.
Fourteen crew members of the Carnival Fascination volunteered their free time on the island to assist in cleaning Great Bay Beach from the Walter Plantz Square to the Great Bay Hotel parking lot on the internationally recognized day for coastal cleanups.
The energized crew decided to enjoy a nice walk back to the ship alongside the Great Bay Beach after the cleanup.
Port Agent for Carnival Cruises, S.E.L. Maduro and Sons, applauded the effort made by its Principal.
“It is great to see that an internationally renowned company like Carnival Cruise Line doesn’t take our island for granted, but gives it the respect that it deserves,” General Manager of S.E.L. Maduro and Sons Sjaoel Richardson stated.
