Default St. Marten (again) Looking for something different to do

Will be sailing on Royal Princess, TG Week. Will be in St. Marten TG day. Have been to St. Marten 7 previous times. We've ferried to Anguilla and St. Bart's before and this time would like to go to Saba. Is there a ferry that runs back and forth to Saba while the Royal Princes is in port? If not, what is there to do for travelers who have been to Orient Beach, have taken island tours, have spent time on the French side, have visited the zoo, have experienced the America's Cup Yacht race, and have shopped and shopped and shopped (I think Diamond's International is going to dedicate a store to us). Thanks in advance for a reply.

I'm not sure if there is a ferry to Saba, but from what I have seen about this island on tv...getting there is difficult,and then getting to the town is tricky. There are some delightful shops, where the host of the show had some batik shirts made....Beautiful, but, a lot of effort.

Trip, with her book & tea!

You can try Maho (Sunset) Beach and watch the planes come and go
