1 day in St Croix

Our cruise also goes to St. Thomas, St.Croix, Antigua, St. Lucia and Martinique. I am trying to figure out what to focus on at each place . We definitely want to snorkel and do the beach and possibly zip line and kayak. I just don't know the islands to know which place is best for each activity. Which one should we plan to snorkel and which would be best as a beach day? Or is there something exciting that is a can't miss like a rainforest tour our volcano?

We are a family of 4 traveling on Royal Caribbean Jewel of the Seas. The kids ages are 12 and 13.

Any advice and suggestions are appreciated.

St. Croix is a great, natural place. I really enjoy the rainforest, so would lean towards that. Sweeney's Island Safari is one tour that will take you through the rainforest and to Mt. Pellier Domino Club to visit the (non-alcoholic) beer drinking pigs among other places.

The cruise ship docks at the pier in Fredriksted. Beaches there are good for snorkeling and swimming. If you look at the tab under top questions about snorkeling, you should find plenty of information about that topic and where to go.

The botanical garden, St. George Village BG, is very nice and also fairly close to the cruise pier. It's built in sugar ruins, some restored, so you have those to examine plus the excellent garden, butterflies, hummingbirds, and lizards throughout. Look inside the old ruins to see Jamaican fruit bats roosting.

No zip lines on St. Croix.

Go through the Things to Do tab at the top of this page for more information. There are some good tours, Tan Tan and Gecko, that you might be interested in doing as well.

Have fun!

Your kids would love Tan Tan Tours and the ATV/Jetskis through Geckos island adventures. They are not cheap, however, so another option would be a beach day at Rhythms about a mile or so north of the pier.

Definitely check out the ports of call forums on cruisecritic.com. You will be able to get lots of info about all of the islands in one place.
