I rated this port just a 3 only because we don't even get off here or any other private island for that matter. We take advantage of the cruise ship while others are having their beach day!
Although we had rain when we arrived in St. Maarten, we were the only ship in port that day. Once the rain subsided it was a nice visit. We did a tour through an independent tour company that is highly recommended by Cruise Critic members. We loved the tour and would definitely recommend them and use them again on a future visit.
