Meet your Barbados Carnival Ambassadors

Our team of Ambassadors will travel with you and we’ll be getting you ready for Ultimate Crop Over!

Esha and Tarik Davis

Co-Founders, Events by Ashé LLC

Say hello to Esha and Tarik Davis, the dynamic duo behind Events by Ashé LLC. Esha's got that Trini spirit coursing through her veins, sharing all the local secrets, from the tastiest eats to the must-see spots. Meanwhile, Carnival Connoisseur Tarik spills all the Trinidad & Tobago hacks he's gathered over the years. They're like your carnival compasses!

Our love story? Well, it all started amidst the vibrant beats of Trinidad Carnival in 2006. Yep, that's us in costume, meeting for the first time! 🎭❤️

Once we started swapping Carnival tales, we realized something crucial. There were so many kindred spirits like us, craving the Carnival buzz but feeling lost amidst the chaos of planning – tickets, costumes, safe stays? Sounds familiar?

And that’s how the magic began! Ultimate Trinidad Carnival burst onto the scene, followed by Ultimate Crop Over, Ultimate Spicemas and Ultimate St. Lucia Carnival. We're on a mission to sprinkle confidence and banish your worries, making your Carnival journey a drama-free delight.

When we say we’ve got you covered, we mean it! Forget the planning stress – all you need to do is book that flight, toss some beachwear in your suitcase, and show up at the airport. We’ll handle the rest, from A+ BBB ratings to being your safety superheroes.

Trust us, our team is not just about the party life (though we're quite the pros), we’re also beach-lounging, ‘liming’ aficionados. Think of our entire team as your Carnival guides who bring the fun and safety while leaving room for those sandy beach moments!

“My travel experience was absolutely wonderful! Esha and Grace were always making sure that the group was enjoying this memorable, life-changing journey. All anyone has to do is buy their plane ticket, pick their costume, pack their suitcase and get ready to have the Ultimate Summer Carnival Experience.”

Tracy

“Limerz Cruise followed by the beach party was my favourite memory of entire trip.  I liked the pace of the activities on this trip because it allowed for adequate rest time in between. I love my sleep!!!”

Frequently Asked Questions about Barbados Carnival

I’ll be traveling to Barbados alone because none of my friends or family want to go. Can you find a roommate for me?

Absolutely!  We’ve worked with several of our clients over the years to match them up with roommates.  Roommates during Crop Over time usually form lasting friendships.  Here’s how it works: when we get 2 people looking for a roommate, we’ll reach out to you both via email so you can connect.  You’ll then decide if you’d like to talk over the phone or even meet up if you’re in the same city!

With a roommate, you can take advantage of our double occupancy pricing.

You may also want to consider a single occupancy package if you’d prefer to room alone.  See the single supplement information above in the 5-night Premium Experience section for details – click here.

In regards to the costumes, which band are you associated with?

Firstly in our opinion, it’s not Crop Over without a costume!  🙂 Not only will you have more fun, you’ll also have the convenience and safety of being with our group.

Secondly, our costume provider of choice is Aura.  They’re an all-inclusive costume provider in Barbados.  As a part of the Aura experience, you’ll get a beautiful costume, lunch, full bar access, security, rest stations and stand-by emergency services (just in case you need it).

We’re confident that Aura will take care of you, provide you with a beautiful costume and show you a GREAT time!

Is there an opportunity to upgrade to a Frontline costume in your 5-night Premium Experience?

Yes!  If you’d like a larger costume than the Backline costume included in our 5-night Premium Experience, you can upgrade to a Frontline costume.  You can either buy the Ultimate Carnivalista Upgrade OR just purchase a Frontline upgrade on its own. 

We’ll let you know the exact upgrade costs in March 2025 when Aura launches their costumes on their website.

What parties (fêtes) are included in your 5-night Premium Experience and 2-night Upgrade?

Our Ultimate Crop Over fêtes have been selected so you get to experience one of the best things about Crop Over – partying on the beautiful Caribbean Sea!  The fêtes included in our packages are “tried, tested and true” so you’re guaranteed to have a great time.  See below for specifics:

5-night Premium Experience: Sun Aug 3 – Limerz Cruise (all-inclusive).  Includes access to the boat party and the after party on de beach.
2-night Upgrade: Thurs July 31 – Ruk-a-Tuk, which is a breakfast and bubbly boat party (not to be missed!)

Are flights included in your Barbados Carnival packages?

Your flight to Barbados is not included in our 5-night Premium Experience. To purchase your own flight, the airport code in Barbados is BGI.

  • Should your account not be in good standing (i.e. 1 missed payment or more), you are not eligible for refund payments of ANY amount.

Should there be a cancellation by the Barbadian government of Crop Over 2025, our intention is to offer you the following options:

  • If you’d like, you can also transfer your payments made towards your package to our Ultimate Trinidad Carnival Experience.  We’ll advise you of your new payment plan.
  • Provide you with a full refund, less any irrecoverable fees or costs incurred to date.
  • Please note: should your account not be in good standing (i.e. 1 missed payment or more), you are not eligible for refund payments of ANY amount.

We have also noted any further applicable terms and conditions.  They’re all contained within our registration form which you’ll see when you complete your registration.  

Are the prices listed per person, even if I’m sharing a room with someone?

Yes, the prices listed on our website are per person, single occupancy, double occupancy (2 people sharing a room) or triple occupancy (3 people sharing a room) in US dollars, unless otherwise indicated.
