This was an amazing cruise. Here are the notes I took while on the cruise. 

Cruise noted 

St Marten
Water taxi not needed
Cab can take you to sunset beach $10 per person 
Shopping cheaper downtown, but still a little more expensive than other destinations. 
Don't settle on the first store, check them all out and compare prices. 
Watch out for people trying to get cab money, only pay driver. 
Get to sunset beach early, jumbo jet arrives around 11am. 
Cannot bring iron
No free iron to use. Need to use their laundry service. We purchase the downy wrinkle free spray. Use that with a blow dryer. Took most of wrinkles out. 
Drinks are not free. Sodas are 3.25. Liquor depending on what you drink ran about $25 for 2 for us. Water down drinks. 
If you get cold easy, bring a jacket 

Casino. 30 min before the casino opens they have free lessons on the table. Helped us a lot. 

Reservations. Before you leave home go online and book dinner and show reservations. That way you can plan the rest of your day after that. If you don't you have to wait to see a show. 

There are cabanas you can rent. There are also covered seating you can rent, but you have to get them early. $35. Don't think it pays to pay for an excursions on this island.  
Beach club

Cabin / Stateroom Awesome. Loved it. Perfect for us.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs Did not use
Everything was great. Cats was not for us but the performers are awesome
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Water taxi nice but not needed. Must visit sunset beach.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Need more covering. Should have more umbrellas for the guess. They charge for beach covering but I guess you have to book in advance.
