Did not like this port. We called here as we had a medical emergency on our ship. If you do anything hear plan a tour or something. Walking I'd not advise.
We loved this island. The tour of the rum distillery, north beach, ruins, and rain forest was unmissable. Beautiful waterfalls.

Watch out for thieves - we have only visited twice on on both occasions we have seen a gentleman have a neck chai stolen by moped rider

If I never go back here it would be too soon. People were not friendly at all. Not accommodating to tourists.

Loved this port most. Everything was closed New Year’s Day so we just wandered the pretty streets and talked to people. I did not have any trouble talking to folks so I am not sure what the other reviews are suggesting. Prices weren’t worse here than anywhere else. Take in the city. Take your time. Enjoy the atmosphere. Be polite and respectful and you will get it back double.
Loved it. Did a tour. Beautiful island.

We visited Martinique and walked around the city at the port, however we did not do an excursion. It was difficult to communicate with people as pretty much everyone speaks French. Seemed like a lot of people on the ship went out and came back sooner than normal. Not a bad experience but not great either. This port replaced St. Maarten, which is one of my favorite ports. Hopefully St. Maarten will be added back to the itinerary in the future.

Paid $7 (Rtn) to take the ferry to L'anse deL'ane, and snorkelled at Coco resort (Cost $20 if you want a chair and umbrella, but free to put your stuff on the sand and swim) then walked down the street to another larger beach. Attempted to buy water with US$ but was refused. Although I speak French, the shopkeeper was adamant that she would only take Euro's as Martinique is part of the French Antilles. She did direct me other shops that take US$ but I declined to backtrack, and instead went back to the ship for Iced tea, lemonade with my wings and a Coney Island dog at O'Sheehan's pub.

We planned on staying on the ship based on the reviews. We ended up exploring a bit. Beautiful island! I would not stay on the ship! We wish we went to the beach, next time. A lot of the shops do accept us currency or euros. Getting off the ship most everyone I ran into spoke English. Not at bad as people say.
