Charlotte Amalie Cruise Port in St Thomas Eastern Caribbean
  • Cruise Passenger Terminals – Crown Bay and Havensight

    Large cruise liners can dock at two different locations.

    Located on the West Side of town is Crown Bay Center, located at Crown Point Marina. Most commonly ships dock at the West Indian Company Dock  (referred to as Havensight), which is the larger dock located East of the town centre. Both terminals however are located close to downtown Charlotte Amalie (5-10 minute taxi ride).

    When it’s very busy in town, some large ships remain at anchorage in the Charlotte Amalie harbor. All major cruise lines are docking in St Thomas, and it’s one of the busiest ports in the Caribbean. Many cruises depart from Miami fl. (Miami Beach) or Ft Lauderdale in Florida (see all hotels). St Thomas’s most famous beach ‘Magens Bay‘ can easily be reached by taxi.

    A luxury cruiseliner offering itineraries from the port is SeaDream Yacht Club.

  • Where to Stay ?

    As the island is just 32 square miles, all holiday accommodation is within reasonable reach of the ship terminal.

    There are taxis, public transport and hire cars that make it easy to get about the island and explore. Beach side rentals on the island, such as at Lindbergh Bay, may be a fine choice if you expect to spend a great deal of your time at the beach.

    If you’re a couple planning a romantic vacation, you may prefer to stay at a delightful bed and breakfast overlooking the city, or perhaps you would rather a secluded private villa.

    The city offers a choice of hotel inns that are within walking distance of lively bars, high-end boutiques, bustling markets and great restaurants.

    For a home from home experience with privacy, luxury villas in the less busy North-side area of the island offer exactly that.

    Whether you’re visiting the island as a family, couple or with a group of friends, all-inclusive resort hotels are ideal. Look out for the variety of facilities offered, which may include swimming pools, on-site restaurants, shuttle services and activities, such as golf.
