108 Martinique Cruise Reviews

Old French port and it was dismal. Euros required. Merchants were out to scam you. Euros and US$ were treated as equal - not so.

We played golf on the Robert Trent Jones designed course. It was in very poor condition (reflected in cheap green fee) which was a shame as its a great design. There were no taxis available to do your own thing and we got a lift there in ... Read More

Just walked around and took in the town. Went to a cafe for coffee and sat on their balcony and hoped that we would not fall through it. Went to a restaurant for lunch and the food was just okay.

We loved looking at the fort. There is a fabulous arts centre, but it is closed on weekends....which is when MSC visits.

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

We walked ashore and went to the shops at the end of the pier. Saw some nice stuff but when we made a purchase learned that everything is sold in Euros. As a result we were overcharged for paying in US dollars. Credit cards are not used because of damage to the system caused by the storms. There were shuttles available to the beaches that looked interesting. We went downtown and over to the fort for sightseeing. Nice place. Read Less

We negotiated with a local taxi driver for a two hour tour of the island; however, his English skills were very limited and he did not seem to have a great knowledge of the island, so the "tour" was somewhat limited. ... Read More

We were last here in 2002 so were eager to see what had changed in 16 years. Martinique is a French overseas territory, so French is the primary language spoken as well as local dialects, and the euro is the standard currency. Unfortunately, we were docked at the Tourelles Cruise Terminal, a good 20-25-minute walk from the town centre. It was a very hot and sunny day and I can tell you it was exhausting to walk this distance (in retrospect, we should have taken a taxi back to the ship). We only planned to do some souvenir shopping for our granddaughter and walked down several streets in the downtown area. Merchants were polite but not willing to negotiate, even trying to do so with my fluent French. In one shop, there was obviously signage that was misleading, both for the deal offered as well as the price (it was in euros, not US dollars). We stopped in the La Savane public park for a drink and snack (and to get out of the sunlight!) before returning to the ship. Read Less
