Cruise ships in STT
Does anyone know where the Cruise ships usually doc in St Thomas?
Are you looking at a map or do you want to know what area or do you want to know the name of the dock?
Do you know the cruise line? There are 2 harbors, Havensight and Crown Bay and contracts are in place for each cruise line.
Holland America and Princess dock exclusively at Crown Bay; all other lines dock at Havensight. On occasions when there are more than 5 ships in port, ships will anchor in Charlotte Amalie harbor.
Hope this helps!
The WICO ship schedule shows where the ships are docking. The May schedule is up now:
Thanks for the info! I am going to be there for a week in July, and I wanted to try to stay away from the places where there will be a lot of people from the cruise ships!
I suggest taking trips to St. John and going to any beach other than Trunk Bay (where they send all the cruise ship passengers). On St. Thomas, Magens and Coki are popular among cruise ship passengers. On St. John, my favs are Cinnamon Bay and Maho Bay. On St. Thomas, my favs are Coki (even with a lot of people) and Lindquist. Have fun!
Hi Teresa, is Lindquist now accessible from the road? We've never visited the beach but have friends that have been there a few years back and loved it. We heard it was now only accessible from the water....
Not sure Bill. The government just bought it so hopefully it is open. It was so trashed behind the tree line (diapers hanging from palm trees - it was baaaaad), but if you could make it to the water's edge....it is beautiful. The sand is the softest and the West side of the beach was usually cleaner and nicer. We went to that beach right up until they locked it up tight.
STT Resident might know as I am not on island. Still, if it is locked up, it was always better from the water anyway.
I really don't think you have much to be concerned about. Stay where you like.
The cruise ship arrivals in July are much lighter than "in season." In fact, there might even be a day or two where you won't have any cruise ships in port at all. IMHO it doesn't feel very crowded here when there is only one or two ships in port (which is the type of traffic you will see on many days in the summer). Also, most ships leave the harbor at around 5:00 or 6:00 P.M. anyhow.
JMHO for what it's worth 🙂
Some good news I think. 🙂
