Patrons at Xaymaca's Cooler Cruise last year.

"Everyone is in high anticipation of what will ensue because the first one was E-P-I-C!," Director of Xaymaca International Kandi King told The Gleaner.

Jason Facey, a patron at the first staging of the Xaymaca International Cooler Cruise, posted a thorough review in a dedicated soca-themed group.

The introduction of his review reads:

"The music was on point, the crowd was high-energy. Kingston's night light profile is always gorgeous. The women were sinfully dressed with waistlines to match and I had the best bartender possible (myselfthe beauty of cooler parties). People were still rocking to the waves of the harbour long after they were firmly on shore."

Facey's primary discrepancy lay in the coolers taking up too much space.

"We are very excited, and share that excitement with our masqueraders and patrons who have been eagerly buying tickets all week. We just restocked all locations, so we're looking forward to a great turnout and an even better time," King added.

For those with a little soca fever, limited tickets for the Xaymaca International Cruise are available at Xaymaca Band House (Barbican Beach), Pita Grill, and through ticket ambassadors.

The Treasure Queen will set sail from the UDC Car Park, Ocean Boulevard (on the Kingston waterfront).
