Some cruise stop questions


I´m planning a cruise for next August with Royal Caribbean.

We´ll have a 1 day stop at Charlotte Amalie – What can we do in a day??

Is the pier far from city center? What distance?

We like sightseeing and cultural visits and if possible end the day with a swim on the sea..

Do we need a guide?

Is it better to rent a car?

What should we really not miss?

Do I have to exchange money or are USD or Euros acceptable?

Suggestions pls

You could do a tour with someone like Godfrey http://godfreytoursvi.com/ - I hear he's good. Or you could get a taxi to take you around. Another option is to take a ferry to St. John. It will be less crowded over there and the beaches are spectacular. Taxi's are readily available when you get off the ferry.

First of all we are in the US and US dollars is all we use! Like you were told before, taxis are readily available from the pier, those guys will usually try to get you on a tour.e town area is not too far away. Most of the tours include a visit to the regular sites as well as some shopping time and beach time. I would encourage you to try to get a personal taxi to customize the tour for you.
