I thought the ship was okay it needed a few mor chioces of stores and the items that were for sale weren't anything exceptional.the library was tucked away and we did'nt know it existed until we were there for half the cruise.

we have also been here but the first time was at the sandals resort all we did was shop, when your visiting this many islands you can't do an excursion at every place or you'll be broke before you leave home.

we hired a driver an he took us on a tour he was very informative, but theres not a whole lot to do here since they are just starting to promote tourism, but i am going back next yearso maybe he will have more to see by then.

this island is noted for there pearls and boy what bargains the next time we go back i'm buying aqlot of them for gift giving. the beach right at where the shopping market was, was absolutley beautiful it offer lounge chairs with cabanas over them it was nice however i don't recommend going to the downtown area as it's about 45-60 minutes away and if your not watching the time you will be left behind if your not back on board when the ship sails.

I've been to st marrten before i liked it .

Pros: I liked the personel treatment we received by our cabin stewart and especially the bar staff Jona in the pool area and in the dining room

Cons: the thing i liked least os that the cabins could of been larger and the bathroom extremely small
