Welcome to the St Thomas Cruise Port on the Paradise Islands website. The island of St Thomas, together with nearby Puerto Rico, is one of the most popular cruise ship destinations in the Caribbean with some 1.5 million annual visitors arriving at the port.

St Thomas Cruise Port

 

Most larger ships will be docking at the Havensight Pier on the opposite side of Long Bay from the main town of Charlotte Amalie, Saint Thomas. Unfortunately, the old town is a fair walk or a short taxi ride away. The Pier can accommodate three of the largest ships at one time and it can get quite busy with passengers being processed for excursions on almost an industrial scale. Around the Havensight Pier are two duty free shopping areas and a new marina.

The authorities have made the port area as pleasant as they can, but like a number of Caribbean Islands; once you have seen one duty free mall you have seen them all! The Editor's top tip excursion is the very lovely Trunk Bay on the neighbouring island of St John.

Walking to the main down town shopping area of Charlotte Amalie will take between 30 minutes and 45 minutes; however in hot weather there is no shade and the road is busy. There is a pavement (side walk) all the way. At the end of the dock look out for the cut through via the duty free village and alongside the marina. It's easy to miss the short cut and you don't want to be walking along the busy Long Bay Road (zoom in to the interactive map below to see your route around Long Bay).

Paradise Point (adjacent to the cruise port) offers an excellent view over the port, long bay and the old town of Charlotte Amalie. The Skyride cable car takes about 5 minutes each way.
