St Thomas Crown Bay Cruises
The busiest of the three US Virgin Islands ' now marketed by the US as "your islands" ' St Thomas at first glance appears to be a shopper's paradise, but it is so much more. Whether you want to snorkel, scuba dive, hike, sail, or lay about on the beach (there are 44 individual beaches), this small island (about the size of Manhattan) can accommodate you.
The island brims with a colorful history that dates back hundreds of years that includes Indians, Pirates, European settlers, slave trading, and remnants of all of these chapters in the islands history can be seen today. In the mid-1600s, the Danes settled the island and placed a permanent mark on its style. Wonderful examples of Danish brick and stonework and architecture make St Thomas, particularly the capital city of Charlotte Amalie, a delight to visit.
St Thomas is designed to be a tourist's haven, not only for the overnight visitor, but also for the thousands who pass through the island regularly on the huge cruise ships.
