We arrived at our first port, St. Martin or St. Maarten, depending on which side of the island you are on, about 8 AM the third day out. It is hard to realize just how big cruise ships are until you walk between two of them at a dock. And, these are now mid-size to small ships. There are ships being launched that will hold more than four times the number of passengers. The new Oasis of the Sea is so large that all the ports are constructing new, larger docks to handle it. Can you imagine 6,200 people pouring off one ship in a small island town?
