GOOD HOPE, Trelawny — Veteran reggae band Third World delivered an impressive performance at the second staging of the Azamara Club Cruises’ Azamazing Evenings, at Chukka in Good Hope, last Friday evening.
The reggae ambassadors picked up where they left off in January, when they thrilled the cruise passengers who embarked from the vessel, which at that time was making its maiden call in Jamaica at the Falmouth Port.
The event forms part of the entertainment package which the cruise line delivers to their passengers on each call.
On Friday, the passengers cheered and danced as the reggae band “honoured” Bob Marley with songs such as the vintage Stir It Up, as well as a musical rendition of Redemption Song, featuring Stephen ‘Cat’ Coore on his cello.
The cruise passengers, many of whom abandoned their seats for most of the performance, also enjoyed Reggae Ambassador, Try Jah Love, Now that We Found Love, among other Third World classics.
Curtains came down with fireworks that lit up the evening skies.
Director of Azamara Club Cruises, Heike Berdos, expressed how impressed she and her guests were with the group’s performance.
“It was wonderful. I think the guests really enjoyed doing something special. We couldn’t have gotten a better group for the event than this one,” Berdos gushed.
Marc Melville, director of sales and development at Chukka Caribbean Adventures, noted his company’s versatility in pulling off programmes to satisfy the demands of the cruise passengers.
“As usual we are happy to partner with Azamara and it’s just another way to show the depth of product that we can provide; the versatility and the variety of programmes that we can provide. So we don’t just do tours with thousands of people per month, but we also have specialty events like this, catering to any need that the cruise lines have.
“Because they have a diverse clientele, different budgets, different spending patterns, different demographics… what Chukka has been able to do is to identify what it is that they want and put a programme together that suits them,” Melville argued.
