St. Maarten is absolutely stunning! We went on a jetski tour, if you like a crazy, rough adventure with no rules, this is definitely for you! It was about 3 hours, we took stops and saw some amazing views. Then we went through these INSANE waves for about 45 minutes, we couldn't even see there was salt water in our eyes and we were just flying through the air. If you like adventure, this is for you!!!
I took a bus tour. There is still much destruction from Hurricane Maria. But they are doing their best to get back up and running. I have had very enjoyable experiences on St. Maarten in the past—especially the airport beach. I wish them a speedy recovery.

Thoroughly enjoyed this port, people nice and friendly. Did not do an excursion but shopped till we dropped and got some very good bargains. Second time here, hope to come back again soon.
Was awesome taking the tour to our beach. However, did not like our beach at all. Wish I could remember what the beach was called. However they did have some beautiful beaches. They still have A LOT of destruction there. It was so sad to see. I made sure I bought things from the locals.

Excellent port! There is a ferry not too far from the ship that takes you and brings you back for $7pp, that takes you to a part of the island that has beaches, stores, casinos, and a few other attractions for a small fee. They offer you beach chairs with a bucket of six beers of your choice for $20. The restaurants are good nearby, and the scenery is breathtaking!!
This was my favorite port, everything was so beautiful - even though there is still plenty of destruction from the hurricane. The people were so pleasant and wanted to make sure you were having a good visit. We had a private tour (just 5 of us) with our very own guide, Deuce, who was incredible and extremely knowledgeable about both sides of the island. He took us to Scooby's, a Bar and Creole Restaurant on the French side. The food was delicious. We also managed to spend about 90 minutes frolicking in the Caribbean Sea before heading back to the dock. Could not get over how blue the water was here!

We found a new go to place in Philipsburg right on the boardwalk called “The Lazy Lizard”. The view is phenomenal, but that’s not the best thing. The food is very good, a true taste of the Caribbean. The service is great. This is a true family owned restaurant where you can hang out on dry land for a while, enjoy a few drinks and good food while taking a break from being on ship.
