I will be going on a cruise in March 2003 to the Eastern Caribbean. We will be stopping in St. Thomas. We would like to head over to Trunk Bay for a few hours. We would also like to spend some time shopping and sightseeing in St. Thomas. Is this doable? Also, how long does the ferry service take if you head to St. John's on your own? Would it be better to go through the ship's shore excursions or on your own? Or, would there just not be enough time to fit all of this in? Thanks in advance for any comments.
