One of the stops on our honeymoon cruise is St. Thomas. I have heard good things about the port and with so many things to do, I have no idea what may be something fun to do while at port. For those of you bees who have been to St. Thomas on a cruise, what did you do and would you recommend it? Just looking for ideas. Thanks!

We’ve been twice on a cruise. THe first time, we went to St John and snorkeled and that was awesome. The second time, we stopped at a sushi bar and had an amazing sushi dinner, and took the tram up to the top, then got a guided tour back down to the port.
If you like sushi, I forgot the name of the place, but it was by the port and has husky toolboxes wtih white leather seats as booths, and a boat at the bar that delivered your food

i have been thinking about going to St. John. I have been thinking about going to a beach and what better beach than honeymoon beach? But I am confused, because it seems like there is a honeymoon beach on both St. John and Water Island. I am going to pass on snorkeling at this stop because we are going to do that when at Grand Turk.

I’ve been on a Carnival cruise and we went to Magean’s Bay beach. (I think I spelled it wrong.) It’s a nice beach,mountains around it and food nearby.

I’ve mostly been to St. Thomas to get to St. John because St. John is absolutely amazing! It’s a more rural quaint version of St. Thomas, definitely worth the ferry ride over to it. The only issue is timing but seriously, you won’t regret going to St. John if you can make it back in time to the cruise. I almost have the island memorized so if you need some help and you decide to go, feel free to PM me. I can also send you some absolutely gorgeous pictures from my last trip there.
St. Thomas is nice if you must stay there, but it’s just too touristy and populated for my tastes. I know the one time I had to stay at St. Thomas because I was cruising with other people, I can barely remember it because all I was thinking about was St. John. I remember a cute little church that they have, getting cell phone service, and looking in all the touristy shops.

Go onto cruisecritic.com and look up what there is to do there. Ive heard Magen’s Bay beach is one of the most beautiful in the world. I’ve also heard good things about Sapphire Beach and Water Island’s Honeymoon Beach. Other people suggest taking the ferry to St John and going to Trunk Bay Beach.

@PitBulLover:I love cruisecritic! I got so much information there for my last cruise. I have looked on it for this cruise, but wanted to post it here as well to see what people here thought. I think I have my top choices narrowed down to Sapphire Beach, Honeymoon Beach and Trunk Bay. I read you are going on an Eastern caribbean cruise in December, what are your stops?
I know Magen’s Bay is considered one of the top 10 beaches, but the day we are in St. Thomas, there will be 3 other ships there and I have a feeling it will be really crowded. That’s why I kind of wanted to stay away.
