I have the late seating and wonder if this is the best option. I have 2 kids ages 5 & 7, who are used to eating early. But the res agent told me the kids usually want to spend the evening in the kids club anyway. And if we have early seating, the kids may not be able to stay up for the show (incidentally, is there a show every night?) What do the kids do in the club late at night if we choose to dine along - say from 8-10? Also- can anyone recommend a shore excursion for St. Maarten and St. John - I was planning to do the trunk bay excursion but read that the beach is very crowded. Would love to do some snorkeling and just laying on the beach, away from the crowds. What about renting our own car - anyone done that?
