CUL DE SAC: “It was an absolute pleasure to dine at your establishment … We were amazed with the food preparations and the immense flavors produced by your chef. Thanks again for showing us around this evening and sharing a little history with us. It is always fascinating to see and learn new things every day.” This was a review shared about Emilio’s restaurant from a family who cruised aboard the first sailing out of St. Maarten since the coronavirus pandemic struck the world.
The Curtis Family was the first to board the momentous Celebrity Cruise’s ship Millennium. “We were thrilled and moved by the emotion and joy that it brought to us and the crew on board. Sailing around the Caribbean, we were shocked to see the devastation that Covid-19 has brought to some business. We were also amazed at how happy the locals were at the possibility of tourism returning,” the family shared.
“We will be returning to the island very soon … The raw emotion experienced on our cruise was something like we have ever experienced before, and we will always be grateful for the opportunity and experience,” the family wrote to restaurateur Norman Wathey.
