I am a first time cruiser and in October I will be going to these ports including Puerto Rico. (One of my best friends is going with and she is a native Puerto Rican so I don't need to know for there.) I noticed that St. Maarten has a Dutch part and a French part. Do they still speak English or a variation of? Thank you.
St Thomas is a US possession so the official language is Engllish but you probably won't recognize the type of English being spoken, very St. Thomian. As a native St. Thomian when I took by husband there shortly after we were married to meet my family he couldn't understand a word anyone was saying.
