Originally found SXM on a cruise in 1999. Then booked SXM for our honeymoon in 2000. We've been going back to SXM and doing cruises ever since...probably over 60 cruises. Cruises are my favorite for nightlife. No driving, no cash needed, many different bars and dancing. When staying in SXM for 18 days this summer, we MAY go out 1 or 2 nights. Beach all day, dinner at villa, then bed....repeat.
