Our last port for this cruise was in Philipsburg.
This is the second time during a cruise that we have visited St. Maarten / St. Martin - probably won't be our last time either. These two countries (French and Dutch) are absolutely breath taking.
The first time we visited these countries we went on a tour with a private company. For this visit to the countries, we did the same thing - only with NCL this time.
