We will be on the Carnival Triumph on 8/4/01 traveling
to the Eastern Carribean. Can anyone give us information
on St. Croix, St. Thomas, and San Juan. We are interested
in Beaches (nice ones), shopping (prices), excursions (prices)
, and transportation costs. I am traveling with my wife and
4-year old daughter, so I would like to know the places to avoid.
George, we have been to St. Thomas, and we will be there in June. From St. Thomas, we took the ferry to St.John to Trunk Bay to a pretty beach. There were showers and dressing rooms there. The shopping in St. Thomas is good, but I can't give you specifics on prices. There are many stores. We stayed at the Condado in San Juan, and that is where we will spend one night this time. We haven't taken a child, so I have no experience there. Enjoy!
