  1. Thank you all for your responses. I'm sailing on the Ruby Princess on a 13-day NZ cruise from Sydney.
  2. New to Princess; first cruise in February.🤔 What is "The Sanctuary?" I'm assuming its an adults-only area and there is an extra charge for admittance. Any details and recommendations would be appreciated.
  3. Excuse me for my lack of search skills, since I'm sure this questions has been answered previously. My wife and I are first time Princess cruisers, and we are on a February 2020 New Zealand cruise on the Ruby Princess. Can anyone tell me what the normal show times are? I'm looking to make reservations at the specialty restaurants, and I want to allow sufficient time prior to or after the evening show. Thank you in advance for your assistance or in directing me to an existing string.
  4. Departure from Queen Juliana Airport in Sint Maarten on Saturday during the high cruise season will definitely match the long lines and stress at any major US airport.
  5. We flew in on Thursday for a Saturday cruise departure. No problems arriving at Sint Maarten airport, were the Immigration (passport check) line was only a 15-20 minute wait. As AnnieO2019 stated, departure on Saturday was pure hell, but other travelers did say that it is much better on weekdays without the cruise ship traffic. Enjoy your cruise.
  6. Airport still has not been restored since hurricane. Overcrowded with verify limited seating and food/bar services. Jetways still out of service; busses to/from plane.
  7. By all means avoid a flight out of Sint Maarten. The airport for departures is a nightmare! We had a 14-day cruise out of Sint Maarten in February. Never again.
  8. Thank you all for your responses.
  9. My wife and I on the February 2 Odyssey cruise out of Sint Maarten. Does anyone have an update on airport arrival and departures issues since the terminal apparently reopened?
  10. Our cruise departs on Saturday, February 2, but we are flying into Sint Maarten on Thursday. Unfortunately, we fly out on Saturday, February 16, so I would appreciate any updates on how the reopening of terminal has improved the departure process. Also, does anyone have experience flying out on United Airlines? Thank you in advance for your feedback.
  11. Are Euros preferred on both French and Dutch sides of island or are USD readily accepted?
  12. We are sailing on the Odyssey out of Sint Maarten on February 2, 2019. Can anyone let me know who the CD is, and whether he/she will be on our cruise leaving on February 2? Thank you in Advance.
  13. raphael360: Thank you for the update; much appreciated. I would also appreciate any additional insights and recommendations that you may have on the Odyssey since this is our first Seabourn cruise. We sailed from Sint Maarten in 1998 on the SV Polynesia (Windjammer Cruises), so I'm sure things have definitely changed. Again, thank you.
