Of all the Islands St. Bart’s is our favorite. Great restaurants,trendy shops,very nice people. It is definently expensive but worth it. Will need some patience with the tendering but heck your on vacation.

We had to tender in but the Seas were very rough. The captain decided to go ahead with tendering even though the seas were bad. Many people were sick, 2 of the tenders crashed into the ship and broke various parts off the tenders. The captain should have never attempted tendering, for safety sake!
