Uber Soca Cruise has announced the highly anticipated return of its theme cruise at sea with three sailings in 2023, including a new Spring sailing in April, followed by back-to-back sailings in November 2023. The new sailings coincides with USC’s partnership announcement with the V.I. Dept. of Tourism, with the territory benefiting as a destination partner for the upcoming events.

We’ve been patiently waiting for the right time to return; a time when USC would be able to execute the experience safely, responsibly and in a way our passengers have come to know and love,” said Uber Soca Cruise CEO Nathaniel Turner. “We look forward to welcoming all of our USC Family on board in April and November 2023 for an epic experience beyond the music. We are very excited about our new partnership with the U.S. Virgin Islands and the USVI Division of Festivals. It has been a wonderful experience and we look forward to showcasing these beautiful islands.”

Tourism Commissioner Joseph Boschulte said the partnership was yet another way for D.O.T. to highlight the territory and attract visitors. “With the continued success of the U.S. Virgin Islands, a collaboration with Ubersoca Cruise is yet another effective partnership that allows the destination to strengthen its positioning in the tourism market,” he said. “Ubersoca Cruise’s brand is synonymous with a unique experience and likewise, the U.S. Virgin Islands offers visitors three reasons to fete – St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas – to provide an unforgettable backdrop for Carnival goers who are seeking an unforgettable cultural experience.”

According to the release, USC’s inaugural cruise from Puerto Rico will sail from April 9 – 14, 2023 and will visit the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Maarten, and St. Lucia. USC’s two Fall cruises will sail from Miami on November 15-20, and November 20 – 25, 2023 to Roatan (Honduras) and a surprise destination dubbed Destination X, that will be announced shortly.

Ubersoca Cruise last sailed in 2019 and was forced to postpone its 2020 cruise due to the global pandemic. After 2 years of uncertainty, USC has decided to return in a major way giving passengers 3 sailing options in 2023 along with all new destinations. USC’s new Spring sailing opens up a host of new possibilities and destinations in the Eastern Caribbean. USC also announced a new partnership with the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI), USC’s Official Destination Partner for 2023, 2024 and 2025.

Bookings for Ubersoca Cruise 2023 will open to the public on July 1, 2022.
