Default Shopping/Sightseeing..the Eastern Caribbean

My last cruise I went to the Western Caribbean and concentrated on snorkling and swimming at the ports of call. This time I want to do more sightseeing and shopping (VISA is going to love me..lol). The ports of call are St. Thomas, St. Croix and San Juan. Can you tell me the "must do" things for sightseeing? What are the best items to shop for in these ports? Thanks!

hi...i just came back from st thomas and san juan,and i can tell you our visa will be smokin......all the newest designs in jewelry and watches, are waiting for you in both ports...buy your perfume though in st thomas,in san juan,i saw no perfume shops...check out you fave perfume prices at home,but realize any new perfumes out in the usa,will take a while to get to the islands..you will save around 20% over prices at home.i saw to die for black and white diamond designs,also,pave designs wih colored stones such as ruby and saphire were a new trend...tablecloths and liquor will also boost your credit card limit..have a good time shopping

I have submitted a review of my cruise on Celebrity’s Century (reviewing both the ship and the ports of San Juan, St. Thomas, St. Maarten, and Nassau). I cruised in May 2001 and my review (and other reviews) can be found at any of the following websites. If you have any trouble (or if my recent review has not been posted at the website that you try), I can email my review to you directly if you like.









(only brief reviews available)
