Default StThomas - "Ultimate Island Experience" excursion

Has anyone taken this 6 hour excursion in St Thomas? The description says:

Note: This excursion ends downtown. Guests are responsible for the return transportation to the ship.

My question is, are taxis readily available and how far (or how many minute of a drive)is it from "downtown" back to the ship? I don't want to miss the ship!

Thanks!

There are more taxis than Diamond Internationals.....

Seriously though, there are dozens of taxis available at any given time all along the main shopping area downtown. You will have no trouble finding one even on days when there are 4-5 ships in. Usually $4 pp and about a 10 min ride whether you are docked at Havensight or Crown Bay.

Michelle,
I'm about 95% sure we'll be taking this excursion on my next cruise (Sept/Oct). Although we're on RCI the "name" and "lenth" of the excursion are the same so I'm sure it is the same. We just haven't decided for sure what shorex to book.

I'll let you know how it goes - (I think you're going in '09 and I won't be too late with the info???)
