St. Martin has, so far been my favorite port stop on a cruise by far.  I found it to be absolutely amazing!  I love the mountainous islands with lush, green vegetation, and St. Martin did not disappoint.  My family, along with some friends cruised to there in 2008.  We chose an excursion with Captain Alan with three snorkeling spots.  Tintamar Island was one of the stops along the way, and I have to say it is one of my all time favorites spots as of this posting.  We stopped at the island to do the volcanic mud mask.  Captain Alan took a bucket of sea water up to where he knew there was a good amount of volcanic ash and mixed the sea water to form a mud.  As you can see from the picture, we covered ourselves in it, hoping to bring back our youthful appearance, and sat on the beach to let it melt the years away as it dried.


As you can see from this after-shot, this volcanic mud can work miracles!  What do you think?

Okay, so not really.  But it did make our skin feel really soft and smooth.  I highly recommend a visit to St. Martin, and while your there look up Captain Alan and have him take you to Tintamar Island for your own volcanic mud mask.  You never know, it just might work a miracle for you.
