It depends on what you want to do. If you are going to St. Maarten, or Aruba, you can rent a car and do the islands yourself. If you leave the island to go on a dive or snorkel, you might want to go with a ships excursion. The ship will not sail without you if it is booked with the ship.

By Meghan Line

Meghan Line's blog

I am often asked about my own personal thoughts on paying the Gratuities/tips on board the cruise ships. To be honest whenever I have been on holiday and received excellent service in a hotel or a restaurant I always leave a tip. I have had times that we have declined to leave a tip as we felt the service was not what we had expected.Cruise ship staff work exceptionally hard on board to ensure all guests receive a high standard of service and in return appreciate any gratuities which reward ...
