America's Cup yacht race

We will be cruising to St. Maarten in November and are curious regarding the America's cup. Has anyone from a cruise ship booked direct with the company? We have read some older reviews and it appears that cruise ship passengers are getting charged more than those staying on the island. From what I have read it looks like a great excursion. Is this also only 30 minutes long? Their website says to book through their ship or through your hotel.

We were staying in St Maarten and hooked up with my brother who was on cruise and did the Amercia Cup challenge. We went through their web site and paid substantially less then my brother did via the cruise line. The schedule for the boats is around the cruise ship schedule so no chance of you getting back late to your ship. The excursion dock is within walking distance of the cruise ship docks. Certainly more then 30 min long by the way. Plan on 2-3 hours. You're at the mercy of the wind as far as the race course. It's a good excursion and very participatory. Have fun!
