Sorry that I got a little behind with my cruise posts... we had lots of Christmas celebrating to do and then I came down with the flu bug! YUCK! Now, where was I... oh yes... our third port of call was St. Maarten!
The night we were cruising to this destination our ship spotted a vessel in distressed and decided to turn around to help. When they reached the boat again they noticed two people bailing water. Our cruise ship released their rescue boats and got the two people off the boat 5 minutes before it sunk into the sea! Crazy huh! We were very thankful that we happened to be passing by at the right time to help them. The people who were rescued departed our cruise ship when we got to St. Maarten safe and sound.
Anyways, St. Maarten was beautiful, sunny and warm! We enjoyed the area and the people very much! Here are a some of the pictures we took during our time at this port.
For this port we did a 4 hour long tour of the island on a boat and on a bus. It was very educational and very beautiful.
Lovely St. Maarten!
Our tour guide told us that people sail from all over the world to stop here! The boats anchored here where out of this world!
We really enjoyed our time here and I wouldn't mind going back to visit again!
However, just being on our ship was pretty amazing too. My next post will be about our time spent on the ship!
More to come soon!
