The only way to travel is with a balcony.

Don't do the aerial tram. Too expensive for what you see and the tour.

Crowded, disorganized, dirtier city than the others.

The catamaran trip is so much fun with music the entire time and dancing on the way back. The crew was phenomenal and the lunch was great. Private beach was cool, and snorkeling was better than Barbados. Open bar always a BONUS.
Don't Miss: The catamaran Fan ta sea.

Went to Orient Bay beach on our own. NO tour. The taxi is about 6-7 dollars per person per way. The beach is beautiful but much more crowded and commercial than Magen's Bay on St. Thomas. Plus, you see boobies of all ages, shapes, and sizes, at the Orient Beach. Those French! :)

Ziplining was VERY cool. Lots of tourist shopping/markets on this island.

no tour... take the cab to Magen's BAY!!!! It's affordable and it's SOOOO BEAUTIFUL. They have a bar, bathroom, live music. The rum punches sneak up on you.
Don't Miss: Magen's Bay...you can do it without the tour and it's cheaper and you're in control

Pros: My balcony and the ports of call

Cons: It's difficult to meet people on board, unless they're at your table or on an excursion.
