ARC brings to Saint Lucia in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure and the op­por­tu­nity for much needed for­eign in­vest­ment as well as on-is­land rev­enue gen­er­at­ing ini­tia­tives which greatly ben­e­fit the lo­cal pop­u­lace. We rec­og­nize the im­por­tance of the sus­tain­abil­ity of tourism prod­ucts such as ARC which con­trib­ute to Saint Lucia's econ­omy and so we at Dig­i­cel are more than happy to part­ner with the Saint Lucia Tourist Board in this and any ven­ture that de­liv­ers pos­i­tive re­turns and eco­nomic stim­u­la­tion for Saint Lucia. We also look for­ward to pro­vid­ing the nec­es­sary telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion ser­vices to the cruis­ers and en­sur­ing they are able to stay con­nected and in touch with fam­ily and friends back home with the ex­tra­or­di­nary ex­pe­ri­ence of af­ford­able world class ser­vice and care on Dig­i­cel's is­land-wide 4G net­work.”

Dig­i­cel wishes all the yachters a safe and joy­ous voy­age as they make their way across the At­lantic to the beau­ti­ful is­land of Saint Lucia.
