  1. We went to Rainbow Cafe in August and enjoyed it very much. Keep an eye out regarding the unrest on the French side. Looks like it should be ok until mid March at least. Hopefully when the talks restart things will go better. If you just want lunch on the French side the Tropicana at the Marina Royale is a good choice. I also think Orient Beach and the village their is recovering nicely.
  2. Nice of them to make a reservation for you for the day that your cruise finally made it to St. Maarten. They didn’t leave you hanging with nothing to do.
  3. For the items that you are looking for I would go go the Marigot Market. Wed and Sat are the best days for crafters and artists. You can take a cab there and back there and the walking is minimal.
  4. On the way back from town I would suggest Chesterfields at Doc Maarten for dinner. We have been going there for years. Good mix of locals, Vacationers and boaters. You are less than a 10 minute walk to the ship from there.
  5. Little Bay, Mullet Bay Beach Or Simpson Bay beach on Dutchside Orient, Pinel Island or Anse Marcel on French side There are others but they are not great for cruisers as difficult to get to and limited facilities
  6. You are lucky to be travelling with a ten yr old so I suggest that you make their day and take them to Maho. If you want relaxing beach time go to Simpson Bay or Mullet in the morning and Maho in the afternoon.
  7. Will you on a cruise or land trip? If a cruise what are your in port hours?
  8. We just got off the Gem and bought the dining package for all 13 nights. To us it’s money well spent. It’s not just about the food it’s about having nicer ambience and better service and booking your restaurants and times prior to the cruise just makes things easier when on board.
  9. Any update on bring extension cords on board? I always seem to sleep on the wrong side of the bed and have difficulties plugging in my small fan beside me. I plan on bringing one this time but if they are getting confiscated then I will leave it at home and ask for one when I see my room steward.
  10. What impact does cruising have on global warming? I hope to hear that it only contributes a very little bit.
