Caribbean Islands Adventure 2022 – Part 2: St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands

January 14, 2022

The seas were calm and the overnight sailing was smooth from Puerto Rico to the Virgin Islands. We started the day on our veranda watching the ship dock in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, USVI.

A scenic bus ride on the narrow, winding roads of St. Thomas to where the catamaran was docked, sailing through the turquoise waters along the coast of St. Thomas, a rainbow over St. Thomas (shown in the header above), sailing through Pillsbury Sound where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean on our way to St. John, a dinghy ride to Honeymoon Beach in the Virgin Islands National Park in St. John, swimming in the Caribbean, walking on a white sandy beach, and just chilling on the beach. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Beautiful day for a sail

We returned to our ship in time for lunch and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon. Our beautiful day ended after another glorious sunset and another delicious dinner.

  1. Wow what a beautiful and warm place to explore and photograph. I would love to exchange the near constant drizzle and dreary winter weather for something more colourful and sunnier ☺️ thanks for sharing and have a good day ☺️ Aiva

    1. Suzanne, I hope things will continue to improve and open up even more. We had a lot of credits from a cancellation which made the experience even better. I hope you get to go somewhere you are dreaming about!

  2. I always think it’s funny when we are on a cruise. Spending days on the water, so then we choose excursions that put us in a small boat, again on the water. >grin< We had a deep-sea fishing excursion planned for one of our excursions last month. We'll have to save it for next time.
