Cruise ship schedule question

Is there a website that would list the schedule for cruise ships that dock in St Martin...or does it change routinely? The only reason I ask is that I have a family vacation scheduled to St. Martin for this summer and would prefer to plan certain events dependent upon the influx of 1-2 day visitors.

any help would be appreciated!

Great question and good answers. Today 28th looks like a full house. 7 ships. We were told that the island goes into gridlock when 6 or 7 ships are in port. I had a hard time believing they had enough buses on the island to handle everyone, but I guess they do.

Certain spots will be busy - where the excursions go. I wouldn't go to Orient today for anything! The cruise transport is fairly efficient and there's no real gridlock except near the port as the crowds come and go.

Its a pretty good distance, maybe a mile or less (?) and not really walkable. There is a water taxi that will take you right to the boardwalk though.

I wouldn't recommend it. Just take the water taxi for a few bucks.

About a 15 minute walk, hundreds do it every day. No reason not to walk if that's what you want to do.
