Our gang is thinking of cruising on the Caribbean Princess next April and we like to go out on our balconies and watch our fellow passengers get back on the ship. My question is which side to book, port or starboard, to see people getting in the port of St. Martin?
We were on Caribean Princess last April on Port side and got a good view of passengers getting on and off. Also tendering. IN Port we were often alongside a Carnival or RC and that was interesting also.
Yes, I agree with the above post. We could see people boarding from the port side.
There was a view that no one expected. We saw late passengers retrieved from the dock and being escorted by the Harbor Pilot to board the ship. Everyone on their balconies clapped as the two ladies climbed the ladder into the ship.
You can hang out on your balcony and wave good bye. We waved to people on the dock and people on the Glory parked next to us.
We sailed in April also. St. Thomas - starboard side faced town. St. Maarten, port was alongside the peer that serviced 4 ships at once so there was some good people watching. Princess Cays was tender port side faced the beach most of the day.
