Our WJ trip was in '03 or '04. The agent offered a 10% discount if we paid in advance. I asked what would happen to my money if they went bankrupt or something, Hah! he said - we've been in business since the 40s, we're stable. Couple of years later we decided to go again - they had gone kaput.
3/4 of the people on the cruise got sick, including the captain, and ME. Never been so sick, thankfully it started around 6:00AM, by 2:00 PM I was drinking Bloody Marys. It was a virus that had started in St Maarten. Captain said half the people on island had gotten it.

Cruzer, I think you are on island now? We get there next Saturday, staying in Orient Village.

We are on the island now at GCBC, move to Mary's Boon on Monday, and, sadly, leave Thursday.

Unfortunately, we had bought into the WJ timeshare program, and only used 2 of the 10 weeks before they went belly up. Still, we have fond memories of those cruises.

And, I don't think I ever got sick, except maybe once after too much Jack Iron rum.

My husband and I are 40 and 45 yrs old. We ended up in St. Maarten in 2007 when my mom gifted us her interval time share to use. We stayed at the pelican that year but found the La Vista Resort,bought a week there and have been returning every year since. St Marrten is a wonderful place I'll never give up visiting every year.

We are Canadian,,age 60 and 49,,,first trip to SXM was in 2005,,stayed at the Old C..in a one bedroom condo. REnted a car,,,travelled a bit....been trying to go every other year since....only missed one....loved the island and the fact that we are not all inclusive people,,,like to stay in a condo somewhere. Usually travel in January or February to get out of the cold for a week. One day would like to make our trip longer,,,but heck we have a lot on our bucket list!!

We're both in our mid 50s. We've been owners at Flamingo Beach since 1998. Our last time on the island was 2013 but we'll be back again for 2 weeks in June.
