Philipsburg, St. Maarten 3

Philipsburg, St. Maarten 3

In Philipsburg you will find a long beautiful beach lined with many restaurants, bars and hotels.  Water taxis take tourists from the cruise ships to the beach and with 4 cruise ships in port, they were very busy.  For your information, for a reasonable cost $7 you can use the water taxis as often as you wish.  After several hours of exploring the area, my wife and I returned to the ship.  Then after a short break, I went back into the city to make more photos.

I included the photos of the cruise ships to compare the size of two of Royal Caribbean's ships.  The Liberty of the Seas (on the left) is much larger than the Vision of the Seas (on the right). I think the Liberty can carry around 6500 passengers and crew and the Vision can carry around 3200.   If you are interested, you can find out what each ship has to offer by clicking the name of the ships above.
