We enjoyed the island. Not a lot to do off the port, excursions are expensive for this island. We took a taxi to the sandcastle resort. $6 round trip and $10 admission includes all amenity such as pool showers and beach chairs. Very quiet and everyone was really nice. Highly recommended this excursion for the price!

This island is still suffering greatly from the devastating effects of the hurricanes last year. The town of Frederiksted is small and after a walk around we took a shared taxi (with other passengers from the cruise) to Christiensted. This was a little prettier and we were able to have a lovely lunch at a restaurant on the boardwalk, watching passers by, boats and fish in the water alongside. After lunch we browsed and shopped for souvenirs before getting the shared taxi back to the ship. I hope this place will recover soon from the damage sustained and hope our visit (the ship's passengers) helps with that.

There’s wonderful snorkeling not far from the dock without taking an excursion. I saw many fish including a scorpionfish!! The water is warm & very calm.
The port is rough. Still recovering from storm damage. Like most in the carribean. However the people are great. Bypass the beach near the port and get a taxi to rainbow beach if you arnt doing an excursion. 3$ per person, 1 way. Beach is free. There is a bar resturant there that you can get chairs, umbrellas, and anything else. Great time. Dont let the port get you down. The island is beautiful and has a lot to offer! One of the best waters! Clear and gorgeous. Might want water socks for the large rocks
