Sint Maarten Overcrowding

When will these cruiselines and ports learn that we, the passengers, do not care for overcrowded ports of call. Nassau is one of my least favorite cruise ports because of the 5 or 6 ships always there. Now Sint Maarten is hosting 6 ships at once!  We have enjoyed this port in the past but looks like it’s days are numbered for us.

@FJB Six is a great amount of ships at once. I would imagine the port has prepared accordingly so that guests still get their usual experience at Sint Maarten. When you visit, how many ships are usually present at the same instance? On a positive note, the area is certainly starting to recover from its past economic loss.

I think we’ve been there with as many as 5 ships in port, but no mega Oasis class ships among the 5.

@FJB I agree. Nassau is not my favorite port of call. I appreciate the port's honestly, and hopefully this awareness instills a change. Nassau has the capability to truly impress its guests as a very conveniently located beach destination. I think Nassau could improve and recover to meet guest expectations again.

@FJBI agree Sint Maarten is a great spot. Tell me more about Maho beach! I haven't explored there yet.

It’s the beach at the end of the runway. You are blown into the water when planes take off and you can practically touch the planes as they fly over the beach when landing.
