There were a lot of uncleaned tables. Maybe the staff to people ratio was too small.

Not much to do outside of Skyride. It was shaky and scary but I did it. Bushwacker drink was yummy and the views are worth it

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

I made perfume at Tijon! Great experience. Catch the bus downtown if you're alone. Otherwise taxi fare is a ripoff.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

It rained all day even though we were in port until 8:30pm. The guides lied about the reason the caves bus driver was late. It ruined the whole excursion. The caves were nice but it felt rushed.
