That was the best vacation we ever had. The kid's club was open till 10 pm free of charge, and after that it was $5/hour per child. They were open till 2 am, so after dropping the kids at the kid's club we were going out every day. We haven't done that in a long time.
The entertainment was great: something new each night: from ice skating show to the production show Vegas style to different type of music in the bars.
The food was good, but nothing special and even though they had restaurants open 24 hours a day, I didn't put any weight on.
The worst thing was, that after going to bed at 1-2 am, it was very difucult to get up early enough to be able to get to the tours that they had. Luckily, we were able to get a taxi and get to the beach without any problems. Fortunately, the beaches were the only interesting things on the islands. There wasn't anything else to see, except St. Marten, that has somewhat unusual history.
Anyway, now we are thinking about going on a short cruise for a weekend, instead of going to Vegas, the place we used to go for a short out of town trip.
