I posted this on the HAL section, but it's not too active over there. A few questions about our pending Eurodam Cruise:
Our kids are too young to spend money on excrusions, they just want to make sandcastles on the beach ... so our excursions are pretty-much pre-determined.
For St. Thomas, I've been to both Trunk Bay and Magen's Bay before and I'm not sure which we'll go to. On our last cruise, we heard about a young boy (cruise passenger) being shot by a stray bullet from a gang war. I've yet to google and verify any details. If you have any info to share, please do. Is either beach in a particularly safer area? For Magen's Bay, we can do the Beach Getaway, which woudl run about $86.00. Would anyone recommend taking a taxi as opposed to the cruise excursion? There are four of us - 2 adults and 2 kids under 4. In Cozumel, earlier this year, we took a cab ride which was safe and cost effective. I'm just not sure about doing this on St. Thomas.
For Grand Turk - pretty much same question. I've never been before. Is a nice beach within a quick cab ride?
