St. Thomas has the Havensight mall next to the cruise ship pier. St. Martin has a shopping area at the cruise ship area also. St. John has limited shopping and you have to get there by ferry from St. Thomas.

I think the OP might mean St. Johns, Antigua, since they said S. Caribbean.

You will dock at all the ports, and they all have shopping right off the pier. In Antigua you will dock right at the town, so there is LOTS of shopping available there. St. Thomas and St. Maarten also have shopping right at the piers, but more shopping in the main towns is nearby. On St. Maarten, you can either walk or take the water taxi into Phillipsburg. On St. Thomas, people usually take a taxi to the main shopping area.

Have a great cruise!
