GREAT BAY – St. Maarten has been named ‘Best Caribbean Shopping Experience’ by the Editor-in-Chief of Porthole Cruise Magazine. The award is determined based on those in the cruise and travel industry that have “gone above and beyond in terms of service, quality, and excellence”.
“We are honored to be chosen as the Best Caribbean Shopping Experience by Porthole Cruise Magazine. We truly offer something for everyone in terms of shopping trinkets and treasures and it is nice to be recognized for that by a leading publication in the cruise industry. Whether travelers come for our beaches and spas or our cuisine and nightlife, one thing is certain – they never return home empty handed,” interim Director of Tourism for the St. Maarten Tourist Bureau May-Ling Chun said.

St. Maarten Harbour Group of Companies Chief Executive Officer Mark Mingo welcomed the award. He commended merchants for offering a range of merchandise to tempt all shoppers.
“The destination must continue to exceed the expectation of visitors. After all, a great experience shared will attract more visitors and tourism dollars,” Mingo said.
