St Maarten has for decades been a popular port of call for the cruise industry. The Dr Wathey Pier, on a walking distance from Philipsburg, is a strategic hub for cruise vessels in the middle of the Caribbean.

The combination of the capital of one of the most vibrant destinations of the Caribbean and a lively port brought it amongst others the awards of Best Cruise port of the northeastern Caribbean (CruiseCritic, 2016) and various times that of Best Shopping Port of the Caribbean (most recently 2020; Porthole Magazine).

The port is managed by St Maarten’s Harbor Group of companies. If you want information on what to do on St Maarten, please look at our suggested itineraries.
