This Caribbean island isn’t overrun with tourists

GUSTAVIA, St. Barts – This French island in the Caribbean 110 miles east of Puerto Rico isn’t just a playground for celebrities.

It also has emerged as a travel destination where the not-so-rich-and-famous can experience a little taste of French joie de vivre without crossing the Atlantic.

I recently spent a day in St. Barts as part of a 12-day cruise – billed as the “Charismatic Caribbean” – on the 670-passenger Oceania Sirena, one of six ships in the Oceania fleet. The Florida-based cruise line is known for its small to midsize ships and high-end cuisine.
