Default Jeep Excursions on St Martin vs Jeep Rental?????

My husband and I are going on the Glory on September 18 to Eastern Carribbean and I have a major question with regards to the excursions on St Martin.

We have always rented a jeep in most ports, because we enjoy the freedom of being in our own veicle and charting our own course. But having never been to St Martin, we are a little hesitant about doing that but still want to have some freedom. I noticed that there are 2 jeep excusions offered by Carnival. One is the 4x4, the other the Pingauzer.

Has anyone ever tried them and what was your experience? If not, what other excursions did you try? Or has anyone ever rented a jeep on the island and headed off on their own?

Last summer my husband and I did the Glory Eastern...We rented a jeep on St. Martin from Unity Car Rental ( we did it online...) it was about $60 for the day including gas and insurance. They met us at the pier with the jeep and a map. We had a glorious day. We drove counter-clockwise around the island. We stopped at Dawn Beach and Orient Beach...We had lunch in Grand Case and shopped in Marigot and Phillipsburg...We were able to dropped the jeep off when we were ready to get back onboard at the pier. It couldn't have been any easier.... I would highly rec.

It's a beautiful island and easy to navigate!

Have spent many days on St Maarten on land vacations and driving is real simple. Like Snow White said, you can go all the way around the island easily. I would definitely go with renting as opposed to an excursion.
