I was personally surprised at how large the numbers were that SXM lost with the loss of Disney.

Disney had a pretty big presence. If you have looked at the number of ships in port the past 2 weeks or so, many days there have been none or just one ship in port. High season fell off very quick and dramatic.

I was checking the cruise schedules & they show Disney arriving in St. Maarten in June,July,August,Sept, Oct several times a month & 4 in November also December. This looks promising for the total number of cruisers to St. Maarten in 2016.

Both Disney and Norwegian still have occasional visits to St. Maarten, however, a significant number of ports of call have switched to Tortola. Both of them have no where near the number of visits to St. Maarten they used to.

It would be so sad if St. Martin had to turn into a Mickey Mouse Show, to survive. What would they do to Orient Beach ?

Compared to the St. Maarten/St. Martin of old and what Orient Beach used to be like, that has already happened IMHO.
