St. Martin
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

This is really not a place I would ever want to visit again. We did go to kind of a funny kitschy beach where there were a lot of very ugly naked people. Maybe there is a better less crowded place to go....

We went into the rainforest for a hike. I would recommend this only because it is so unexpected and the guide, Lyn, is a complete nut case who is good for a laugh. They don't recommend it for kids but our 7 year old went and led the pack. Not strenuous at all. Not really exercise either as Lyn stops the trek to talk every 30 seconds.

What's not to love? Well maybe the traffic around the holidays. Otherwise it has it all in Caribbean terms: beautiful beaches, pretty houses, winding roads, spectacular vistas, and mouth-watering shops and restaurants. We could have stayed docked here for five days and I would have been fine with it!

It's very pretty but pretty limited. We preferred Saba as a remote place. So many tourists and not much to offer.The water is the thing, of course, and it is spectacularly beautiful and just the right temperature.

San Juan
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

We just loved old San Juan. We stayed at the Ritz on the day before the cruise and it is such a generic, rich-American resort so we were very happily pleased with our return hotel, El Convento, which is not luxurious at all but so pretty (an old restored convent) and right in the heart of spectacular old San Juan. It's a great place to walk around and soak in the architecture and the sea views. Also the food is very good. There is also the funkiest most attractive Ben and Jerry's franchise we have ever seen! Totally worth the stay and skip the Ritz (although do grab a meal at BLT which is in the Ritz- for the amazing potato skins and carrot cake, OMG!)
