For those of you who want 'the scoop' and are waffling whether to cruise on this type of ship - here's a summary:
1. Don't book if you're disabled, seriously. There's elevators, but they don't go everywhere, and ALL PORTS were TENDERED. The tender at times is a challenge to get into/out of. And a lot of the ports require walking, have hills, or focus on water sports.
Also, the captain did an incredible job in keeping that vessel stable in the swells that we had, but it's not a 130k ship, so of course there's more movement.
Most everything since the hurricane has been fixed up again.
Nice fort and old town, had done that before.
Pigeon Island w/BBQ very nice except for the drop-off at the beach. Many people had trouble getting in/out of the water.
Anse Mitan is not very touristy which is good.
Anse Mitan's beach lacked shade, there was not much else in port.
Beautiful, quaint, many French people! Nice for (an uphill) walk, small stores, and several restaurants. Loved it!
St.Barth's -nice for a walk and interesting, but all very expensive. (ie purse for 3500 Euro etc)
The large yachts become a norm when there's so many of them ;)
