ST. MAARTEN STATUS:
(Viking has not cancelled St. M as a port stop for our cruise leaving NYC 10/14)

Just received the following information by email from a person who LIVES on St. Maarten and has a downtown business in vicinity of cruise port.
"....I honestly do not think your ship will be here on 10/27. It has been announced that there wlll be the first cruise ship coming on 11/11.
Downtown and the boardwalk are a mess. They don't even have full electricity there yet, so businesses cannot even clean up yet.
I am sure they will have to substitute the SXM port of call. Have a nice cruise though and we will be up and running soon, I hope...."

I am quite interested in the status at Antigua & St. Kitts, as those are stops for our cruise. Also I am quite interested in the previous info about San Juan, because this Viking cruise is supposed to disembark us at SJ 10/27.....so far no change in disembarkation port....
