    CARIBBEAN TOURISM ORGANIZATION

    Proclamation

    Whereas

    The Caribbean Tourism Organization established in 1989 creates and manages the partnerships necessary to
    increase the accessibility to and within the Caribbean that results in sustainable economic and social benefits
    for our people.

    Whereas

    The Caribbean Tourism Organization comprises the Ministers, Commissioners and Directors of Tourism of
    each of the 31 member countries, including English, French, Spanish and Dutch-speaking countries and
    territories, as well as private sector non-government members. These include the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism
    Association, companies, organizations and persons providing products and services to the Caribbean tourism
    industry.

    Whereas

    The SMV Freewinds has operated in and around the Caribbean, visiting 45 ports of call throughout the region
    since 1988, bringing hundreds of thousands of visitors to our shores to join the ship and enjoy the beauty of our islands.

    Whereas

    The SMV Freewinds is the longest running passenger vessel to have sailed the Caribbean, having supported
    the region economically, educationally and culturally; and through its social programs, endeavored to
    improve the standard of life and wellbeing of the Caribbean people.

    Whereas

    The SMV Freewinds has assisted in the training and instructing of over 3,000 professionals in the Maritime
    community, Fire Departments, Police Departments, Defense and Coast Guard Forces.

    Whereas

    The SMV Freewinds has hosted aboard over 200,000 people from the Caribbean for concerts, tours and
    fund raising activities, offering to the Caribbean nationals the chance to experience what the SMV Freewinds is
    and why it has become such a permanent and vital component of our Caribbean community.

    Whereas

    Over 10,000 students have been given a chance, through their schools, to visit the ship and learn about the
    cruise and maritime industry and create or increase their awareness in the Caribbean of this product and its
    objectives.

    Whereas

    Many of the Officers and crew of the SMV Freewinds have sailed aboard her for a majority of these 25
    years and have taken an active role in the betterment of the countries they have touched.

    Whereas

    The Caribbean Tourism Organization recognises these efforts and would like to commend and congratulate
    the SMV Freewinds Captain, Officers and Crew for a quarter century of safe sailing and over 3,000
    calls to our Caribbean ports.

    Now, Therefore

    In recognition of 25 years of consistent support and work economically, educationally, culturally and through
    its social programs to improve the standard of life and well-being of the Caribbean people and to acknowledge
    this exemplary partnership, The Caribbean Tourism Organization hereby proclaims June 6th 2013 as
    "Freewinds Day" and wishes all who work and sail on her, continued success.

    In Witness Whereof I hereby set my hand this Second Day of October, 2012

    Somewhere, both on WWP and OCMB, there is a very long list of all known people who were on board the Freewinds. List was sorted alphabetically.

    Appreciate if some kind anon can find this list and post a link here; I tried, but can't find it. Very relevant to this thread.

    The thread was originally posted on Enturb around 2008, when the asbestos cleanup got lots of media attention.

    Would love to take a tour of the freewinds after a big curry, go and use their toilet and not flush.
  22. Anonymous Member

    Of course he has, but give them enough dox and rum and they'll surely tell us how much that loyalty cost him.
  23. RightOn Member
