Default st. martin vs st. croix?

We are trying to decide between cruises. one has st martin the other has st croix. Is there much difference between the 2? We will be bringing small children so will probably end up at the beach. On the 2 cruises we are comparing (both disney) the St Croix on is $700 more then the other. Any input would be great...thanks!

It's been a while since I have seen StCroix on an itinerary, nice to see that option again.

To my mind, there is much more to do in St Maarten..There is a smallish town on S.C.. The woman I work with had a home there before a hurricane blew it away, and she mentioned the the town has shrunk over the years.. A very laid back port, with great beaches for, but.....

St Maarten has 2 cultures to investigate, and is a much more vibrant island... and has wonderful beaches as well..But since you really just want to beach it, why pay more..St. M, can do it fabulously for all of you, while paying less.

Have fun.

Trip, with her book & tea!
