Nice Dock

We came into this dock prior to our visit to the island. Good facilities. A few duty free shops, bars and eateries.

I am not quite sure but I believe the cruise ships dock outside of the best visitor site. I did walk around the few shops near the boat but there really isn't much to see unless you take an excursion ( my LW did! ) I had been I'll prior to leaving home for the San Juan departure so cancelled...

This is where the cruise ships come in to port and is also the location of Havensight Mall. Home to more than 150 duty free or boutique stores, the mall also provides numerous visitor services. Post office, drug store, bank, dentist, visitor information center, etc. Can get very crowded if there are several ships in port. Dock can hold up... More

We enjoy the free live jazz concert (every other third Tuesday) at the West Indian Dock while staying on St. Thomas. The performers are excellent. The food trucks along side the concert area sell good food and drink. A nice night out listening to jazz and watching the cruise ships leaving the dock.

If you have a rental car there are plenty of places to park but Crown Bay has limited parking, where largest cruise ships dock. Lots of little shops and good places to eat. Also just a short walk to the tram for a bird's eye view of the area. Price compare and try to bargain for prices. Best to know... More

This is the largest cruise terminal area on the island. Immediately off the docks is the Havensight Shopping mall along with ranks of cabs and tour guides. Just a few blocks away is the cable car station that you can use to go to Paradise Point which overlooks the harbor area.

Either coming into the harbor by cruise ship, or travelling by car, the WI Dock is filled with lovely shops selling all sorts of stuff... souveniers, jewelry, etc. Also good for "comparison shopping" if you also go to Main Street in downtown, Charlotte Amalie

While there is another cruise ship dock, Crown Bay, chances are that if you arrive in St Thomas by cruise ship, you will arrive here. While the facilities are quite nice with shopping at Havensight Mall and the excellent views provided by the Paradise Point Tramway, you will probably want to explore the US Virgin Islands beyond the dock area....

I may be biased, but just so everyone knows, St. Thomas is the most beautiful island in the Caribbean. I have traveled to many different islands, and the beauty of sailing into St. Thomas' harbor surpasses the beauty of sailing into any other harbor. Also, Magen's Bay is a wonderful beach where families and couples can relax in absolute splendor.... More
