Life in Philipsburg, the tiny capital of Sint Maarten, is scheduled by the visiting cruise ships. They usuallly arrive early in the morning and before noon the Front Street tax free shops and bars of the beachside boardwalk are bustling with visitors. Ships leave around sunset and the town is silent again.

The ship on the right is Celebrity Solstice, build for Celebrity Cruises by Meyer Werft in Germany and launched in 2008.
The ship on the left is MS Freedom of the Seas, build by STX Europe shipyards in Turku, Finland for Royal Caribbean cruise line. She was the biggest passenger ship ever built, measured by the gross tonnage, until 2009. That time she was surpassed by the MS Oasis of the Seas also built in Turku by the same shipyard for the same cruise line.
