Re: Anyone done the Golden Eagle sailaway in St. Maarten?
This is one of my favorite excursions of all time. That said, if you're looking for snorkelling and food it might not be for you. You sail to an island (on the French side) and the bar is open all the way. They have beer, punch and soda. Once there you have an hour or so at the beach where they serve champagne. Some people have snorkeled there but said it wasn't all that great. I've never tried it; too busy floating while sipping bubbly. Does it get any better than that? On the way back they serve some snacks - little sandwiches and chips. Nothing to write home about, but I get enough great food on the ship and just head for the pizzeria when we get back.
