Hi everyone. This will be my first time visiting St. Maarten. I'm taking my mother on her first cruise. She is disabled (can only walk short distances.) I have seen pictures and videos that show it's a pretty long way from the ship over to the area where you can catch a cab or visit the stores. I've seen somewhere that it's about 800 yards from the ship to this area and that's going to be too far for her to walk. Does the port offer any carts to transfer disabled/elderly to and from these areas? If they do, does it cost anything (or is it customary to tip them? If so, how much?)
Thanks for any info anyone can give.
