Review for Celebrity Edge to Caribbean - Eastern

There is a rich side ( Philipsburg) and a poorer, borderline side ( Margot area and associated villages). Hostile port agents, long waits to get off for a ship excursion. A bus drivearound showed a bit of each, some pretty views you may or not see depending on where you sit on a bus, a lot of rundown homes and junk in yards. Pullouts had trash and broken glass, so wear closed shoes. Would be ...

Took a ship tour to Beach and Lunch. Beach was nice and the lunch was good. Beverage service available on the beach and a chair and umbrella ($5) were offered. ...

Still recovering from hurricane and Covid has made people desperate. I went to Orient beach on ship excursion. I didn’t like being masked. People were desperate and pushy because they needed to eat. Hope as ships return this will change ...

We took a bus from Back Street to Maho Beach for $2 USD. It was around a 25 minute drive and dropped us off right at the beach. The area still seems to have a bit of a ways to bounce back after hurricane damage, but watching planes land right over our head was an unforgettable experience. I'd love to return and stay a few nights. ...

Went on a catamaran out to go snorkeling and to spend time on Mullet Bay Beach. Was a great time. For the snorkeling, the guys on the boat threw out some food to the fish, so we got some great pics. There was a Huey helicopter we could dive down and look at, as well as cannons. On the way back, Rum Punch cured what ailed us. ...

We planned the local bus to Maho Beach to watch the planes. I read the taxi was $10 each way/per person. That adds up with 4 people. $2 each way/per person sounds much better. We walked to town/Philipsburg (P-BURG on the bus signs) to catch the bus. As we read, all the stops were on a street within the block on Back St and behind the Courthouse. The buses are Toyota vans. When you want to get off, ...

Very pretty port. Great Bay Beach was a bit disappointing based on what I had read before the cruise that this was suppose to be an excellent beach. Glad I didn't spend money to do an "excursion" to this. Was easily seen from the shopping district. We did take the water tax from the pier over to the district. ...
