we took a tour from the ship as we wanted to see both the Dutch and French parts of the island. The tour guide was very informative and we learned a lot. I tried to walk to the fort in the French part but learned I'm not as young as I thought I was
Since we had been to St Thomas before, we decided to just walk into town. The walk was longer than we remembered--and longer than people told us it was!--but it was a nice stroll along the bay. I thought the ship docked closer to town the last time we went, but I was younger then so maybe it just seemed closer. We wandered around a bit, had a drink, then took a cab back to the ship. Only $4 per person for the cab.
