Day 1: Philipsburg – Saint-Martin

Our first cruise day started in busy Philipsburg, where the Star Clipper was waiting for us to embark along the new pier, about a kilometre from the town center. We’ve already spent some time exploring Saint-Martin (read about it here) and Philipsburg was definitely the most touristic place on island. Looking at the large number of restaurants, pubs and duty-free shops it’s obvious this is a very much a place for sun-seeking tourists and bargain hunters. We didn’t mind all the hustle and bustle and enjoyed watching the crowds, but if you’re looking for a more relaxed atmosphere it may be a good idea to take a taxi to the beaches on the western side of the island.

It’s not very often that you get a chance to stand almost right on the edge of an active volcano as steam rising from deep inside the caldera swirls around you. Amazingly that’s something you can safely enjoy when you take a cruise to Nicaragua on the Star Flyer, one of three wind-powered tall ships operated by Star Clippers Cruises. There’s no denying that a sea cruise of any type is an exciting adventure, but Star Clippers specializes in unique opportunities, both on board and ashore.
