How far from the ship (Galaxy) to the Vendors Plaza in St THomas? In Barbados....How far from the Terminal Shopping area is the Pelican Craft Center?
In Aruba.....How far from the ship (walking distance(?)) is Seaport Village Mall and Crystal Casino and would you recommend it?
Rick and Deb
In St. Thomas next to the Pier you have a lot, a lot of shops, but if you want to go to the center of St. Thomas for only 2.50 each you can take a cab from the ship and they leave you there. In Barbados I recommend you to take a cab if you want to go outside the port. In Aruba you are in the center of the city. From the ship yo can see the hotels and keep walking all you want even to one of the beaches.
Have a nice trip
Any other question just write to me. My Galaxy trip will be the 14 cruise and I've visited all those places on cruises before.
Rick, you will dock at Havensight Mall but I am not familar with a "Vendors Plaza" anymore in St. Thomas. There used to be a make shift bazaaron the way into Charlotte Amalie, but that is gone now. In Barbados, the Terminal Building is home to beautiful shops, post office, convenience stores, etc. It is right at the end of the docks. When you go outside the building, you will find some "vendors" there too. In Aruba, again, just walk through the terminal building to the end of the street. Cross over the main street and turn right. Seaport Mall and the Crystal Casino are about a 5 minute walk. There is also another section of the Crystal Casino on the waterfront across from the Sonesta and near the Marina and theaters. In Aruba, be sure to say hello to Kennie at Kay's.
