If you are a photographer, this is a great port to simply exit the ship and stroll the local town. There’s a great harbor area, small shopping district near the ship and then the main city is literally one block away from the pier. Lots of great buildings, people, colors and textures for photographers to simply stroll. I spent about two hours wandering and taking photos. Be sure not to miss the inside of the church. You’ll know which one, it’s the really tall one you can see as you walk towards the city. Read Less

We stopped here unexpectedly as a passenger needed medical attention, only available here. A lovely island, it feels very Mediterranean, spent the day wondering around town.

It rained almost all day. We got there late because we stopped to help a sailboat in distress and some of the vendors at the pier were irritated because they had set up for us in the morning and we didn't come until noon. We had wanted to go to the beach but instead we toured the fort and had the best ice cream of my life. It cleared up a little in the afternoon and we let the kids play on the little beach in front of the fort. I was nervous about this island because my french isn't very good but I tried. Everyone that suffered through it smiled and told me they spoke English. The vendors on the pier had some beautiful handmade goods and everywhere we went took US dollars. I wish we could have checked out the beach..... Read Less

terrible.. did not get the feel that they enjoy having non-french visitors. traffic was worse than LA at rush hour. I will not take a cruise in the future that has this island on the itinerary

Anse Mitan is not very touristy which is good. Anse Mitan's beach lacked shade, there was not much else in port.

Beautiful island. Not much English spoken. Taxi up into the hills. Every fruit seen. Orchids growing on trees. Houseplants here growing wild there. Bring euros

Martinique: After trying to get a price from a cab to get an island tour and said $450 we just walked away as the gap was way way off from what we were going to pay. We decided to pay $8 to ride the ferry to the beach. My boy and I apparently were the only one’s who enjoyed it because we were combing the beach for sea glass. Read Less

Berth was further from main downtown area than with an cruise earlier this year with P&O. I suspect MSC use this cruise terminal as it is much better laid out to disembark and embark the mainly French speaking cruisers who leave and join the cruise here. Very long day in port. It was a 15-20 min walk into town which has good shopping, cafe's and bars. Just like a typical French city in fact. Good idea to bring euros with you as well as dollars for the other islands.

We took the Water Taxi over to the Anse L’ane beach. The ship docked at the dock outside of the main city, so it is about a 15 minute walk to the other pier where the Water Taxi was. Water Taxi Fee was 5 dollars each way. We got off at the first stop, which was less crowded and less commercialized then the beach at the second stop. This beach had some great snorkelling. Read Less

We were not impressed with Martinique. We thought we would just do some shopping since we were only there a short time but we didn't feel that the island was tourist friendly.

I did not like the port area in Martinique at all. It did not have an island feel to it. We didn't find anything to do so we walked around for about an hour and went back on the ship

Lovely quiet beach, bit remote from the capital, no chance of an excursion there as the stay wasn't long enough.

We tried to hire a driver to take us around the city but NO ONE would help us because there was only 2 of us. There is nowhere to go here and nothing to see. The only things they provide is taking you to another island for a beach day we didn't want to do that. We were off ship for an hour and went right back on people were rude. I would never go back to this place again. Seemed most people on ship had the same experience because the ships pools were packed by noon. Read Less
