Default Need recommendations for my Honeymoon

We going to the following ports of call on the Grand Princess:

Grand Turk
San Juan
St Thomas
Bermuda West End

My wife to be isn't a fan of swimming in the ocean (fear of sharks). One thing we were thinking about is the helicopter tour in St Thomas, but it says it is only 25 mins and it is very expensive. Anyone know any less expensive options?

Thanks,
Ethan

While in St. Thomas, we took the ferry over to St. John's. We just did the tour there and it was awesome. St. John's is 2/3 national forest, so it isn't commercialized and you just get to enjoy the beauty of a tropical island.

I'll second ML's suggestion. You will really enjoy the beauty of St. Johns. Be sure to stop by and visit a beach...I love Trunk Bay, well worth the time and effort by going there, you'll love it.

You may want to visit El MOrro while in San Juan, its got quite a history and the view is amazing. You can even walk up there if you want or catch the free ferry that goes there. Plus you can walk around Old San Juan.
