Default Southern Cross

Hey all, I've always wanted to see the Southern Cross and am wondering if this will be possible arround St Thomas, San Maarten in November? Also, where will be a good spot to view the stars (really dark area) on the ship? Thanks,

Depending on time of year, you can see Southern Cross from Caribbean. Just check a star chart. Also, around time of new moon it will be easier to find.

Definitely can see plenty of stars from the ship. I recommend bringing along a star chart or ask one of the ship's officers to help you identify the stars.
