Absolutely loved St. Maarten/St. Martin. We took a private all day tour, for only $40 each, and really enjoyed seeing both sides of the whole island. Orient Beach and Mako Beach are both marvelous. Great lunch our guide got us into with short time. Lots of fun. My favorite port.
Nice ride around the island to Greathouse & Blackbeard's Castle. Too expensive for what it was and it was marketed to people not able to walk the stairs down from the Castle. It also left you more than a mile from the ship without making that clear beforehand.
