While in St Maarten take the America's Cup race. It is great. It cost 179.00 for 2. I just got back yesterday on the Glory.
I went to Warter Island while at St Thomas and went on a bike ride/beach visit. Booked it through Water island adventures for 60.00. The shops in St Thomas close at 4:00pm ship time, so shop early. You will love St Maarten, the people are very nice. What ship will you be on?
I was at all those stops in October..... great cruise
I was very disappointed in San Juan, we did buy an excursion, but it was a late arrival, and didn't get to see much except for Old San Juan. Personally I felt that it was a dirty city. There were panhandlers everywhere. One lady dropped a cigarette, and about 4 drugged out locals went running for the butt. It was all kind of depressing to see.
St. Thomas was a beautiful island. We did the Black Bart's Castle tour. It was a good time! We then went into town and did some shopping. I loved it.
St. Maarten was my favorite. They were doing some work on the roads which made it a little hard to get around, but everyone was very friendly. My husband and I were disappointed with all the excursions we had gone on in the last two ports, so we didn't get one for St. Maarten. We just took a taxi ($3 per person) into town and did some awesome shopping!!
Good luck, I know you will have a great time, St. Thomas and St. Maarten are beautiful islands!
A bad cruise is still better than a good week at work!!!
