Subject: Re: Driving in the Caribbean
Hi Ziners, My Royal Caribbean cruise the first week of December will have two ports of call where I was considering renting a small car for the day. These are Phillipsburg St Maarten and St Thomas. The prices are very reasonable vs. the shore excursions offered by the cruiseline, but I admit to being a little worried about trying this. First off, are the drivers maniacs on either of these islands, are the roads treacherous, and of course is it safe for two women to venture out everywhere on these islands. I know I sound like a whusss (sp.?) but I was much braver in my 20's!!!! Also, I guess if it is in fact safe in all aspects, what are the must-sees? Thanks so much. Helen Ottawa, Canada
