2019 ST THOMAS COSMOPOLITAN TOUR
Take a step on a global pathway, view the islands past and present with an interpretive guide. Composed of diverse people and elements from around the globe, St. Thomas is welcoming you ashore. From the moment you catch glimpse of this tiny palm fringed island, outlined with a brilliant azure Caribbean Sea, your mind will be captivated by the islands natural beauty.
Meeting your tour guide at the recognizable United States Postal Office building located just steps away from your ships concourse is where the two hours begin. Accompany your professional guide along the waters-edge walkway, interacting with the sea gulls and pelicans soliciting attention. The narrow streets of Charlotte Amalie will quickly transform you back into an era of rich history. Enthralled in royal Danish architecture, strikingly outlined in contrast with the blue Caribbean sky, you will make your way down the narrow “gades” (Danish term for “street” pronounced gah-dah). If so inclined (pun intended) accept the challenge of “99 Steps” (actually 103) leading you to one of five National Historic Landmarks in the islands, Blackbeard’s Castle. Take in a captivating view high above Charlotte Amalie Harbor before returning to your cruise line.
Once in the city you will find it difficult not to extend your stay with independent duty free shopping, lunch, art galleries, or just a little liquid sunshine. You may extend your Charlotte Amalie adventure independently or return with your guide on foot back to the cruise port. Either way your guide is well versed and would be happy to share their recommendations and local favorites.
