We have even thought about taking a weeks break from being on island and cruising for a week out of SXM and then returning to our timeshare for more weeks on island.



I'm not certain, but I don't believe SXM has a port authority at the dock. Are you allowed to board in mid cruise in SXM?

There is a cruise that starts in SXM and ends in SXM.

I never thought I'd like cruising then we took a Disney cruise with our son in 2013. We took our second in 2015 and have our third and fourth planned for January 2018.

Cruising is how we discovered St. Martin. We took a round the island trip with Soauliga Destinations and absolutely loved it.

We're visiting for 10 days in 1 week staying at Mt. Vernon. I booked a day sail to Prickly Pear Cay just off Anguilla with Soauliga Destinations. Other than that we'll be exploring and spending time on the beaches.

Windsurf and Zenith are both home ported in SXM, at least part of the year. There may be others.

never heard of either ship, are they boutique cruises? I know some of the smaller sailing vessel cruises like Windstar stop at different ports.

Windsurf is a Windstar ship. It's about 300 pax. Zenith is a former Celebrity ship, and they never changed the name of the ship. It's maybe 1200-1500 pax? Zenith is operated by Pullmanteur (sp??) Cruises, which caters mostly to European passengers.

nice, might check it out, We prefer more comfort in these years, we have no desire to go on a Windstar. After selling our boat, we are looking for creature comforts

Sorry, I think you are confusing WINDSTAR with WINDJAMMER. Windstar will definitely provide you with creature comforts..
