Been there before so we did our shopping near the pier rather than taking the water ferry downtown. FYI the ferry is a 7.00 per person round trip.

Walked around the island. Had booked an excursion but decided not to go. We were only given 4.5 hours on the island.

Love St. Maarten.. This was my 5th time being there. Because we had to be back on board by 1:30, didn't get to do much of anything.

I suggest that everyone stay away from the main beachfront experience. There were approximately 7000 cruise ship vacationers there at the time and the one oceanfront Beach was very very crowded

Took public transportation (vans which run about every 10 minutes) to Maho Beach for $2 per person each way. The vans have signs in the window showing where they are headed. Maho Beach is where the planes pass close to the beach as they land at airport. Was apprehensive about the van prior to the trip, but it was clean and easy to find. Most large planes land between 11:45-2:00. Read Less

Ship made an announcement about roads being closed around noon, and all aboard was around 1 PM or so...so we just walked around the port for less than an hour...

We highly recommend Parrotville which is in Belvedere about 10 to 15 minutes from the cruise port by taxi. A sweet local man owns and runs this small Aviary. You can feed the birds to your heart's content and they will land on you and some will even let you pet them and will give you kisses. The taxi stand is an easy walking distance from the cruise port and taxis are readily available to take you anywhere. There is also a nice Beach right inside Phillipsburg. Chair and umbrella rentals were $15 for two people. Phillipsburg is about a mile from the cruise port and has lots of small shops and kind locals. There are lots of places to eat and drink along the waterfront. Read Less

Best port of the trip. Small enough to see it all on foot. Great shops, excellent food options, beach right off the ferry to the island. Chair, and umbrella cost $20, find the local that does the jet ski's, great guy, ask him where ... Read More
Best port of the trip. Small enough to see it all on foot. Great shops, excellent food options, beach right off the ferry to the island. Chair, and umbrella cost $20, find the local that does the jet ski's, great guy, ask him where he likes to eat if you're into seafood. Read Less

Again, I visited this port a week before the devastating hurricane but there are still signs of the devastation. We didn't go to Orient Bay as usual as it is still not built up. We ferried over to town but the harassment on the beach for beach chairs were at an all time high. We finally went into a small restaurant called Caribbean Blend to get away for a drink, some WiFi and peace and quiet. After we finished we returned to the ship. Read Less
