My German born watch repairman lived in St. Croix, USVI for years until he grew tired of the violence, drugs and craziness. Lucky for me he moved to Florida. It got so bad there that not only cruise passengers were being robbed but also cruise employees.
That is why few cruise ships visit St Croix.
