Trunk Bay on St. John Island was phenomenal. The water is crystal clear, the sand is powdery white and the views are breathtaking.

St. John's tour with Annaberg Ruins - felt too short and MSC didn't state the starting time on their website pre-cruise, which made planning the rest of the day difficult since this was a half day tour. Definitely could use more time at Annaberg, and maybe 1 to 2 hours at one of the amazing beaches on St. John. Read Less

The weather wasn’t awesome for snorkeling but it was still nice. The excursion staff once we were on it, was great. On the way to the tour, I felt a bit like herded cattle.

We went to Trunk's Bay on St. John's for snorkeling. It was beautiful. Nice to get away. Not too many people. No facilities, so bring snacks.

We did a private tour with David. Our ship got in late but David tracks this and was there when we got off. He showed up around the island, gave us history, took us to all the main attractions, did some shopping, suggested somewhere for snacks and then took us to the beach and then back to the ship on a different route so we could see the other side of the island. As David says, you can't go to an island, sit on a beach all day and think you know anything about the island. David was great and is highly recommended. Read Less

We traveled by boat to St. John. The crew was funny and knowledgable. We took a tour of the national park by taxi (open air). The driver stopped at several spots to allow time for picture-taking and to explain the history of the island, which was fascinating. He also pointed out several native plants and told us how the native Islanders use them. Read Less

This was a morning tour of the island, picking us up near the ship and giving us the choice of drop off in town or by the ship. We seemed to do a lot in the short time and it was enjoyable.

The tour was our first time on St John and the ferry ride over and back was relaxing and informative hearing about the hurricanes that hit both islands. On St John we chatted with a local gal about what they had to do to evacuate after the storm and how so many people lost everything they own and the places they worked after living there for years. So sad but sailing there helps the economy. Read Less

We enjoyed our trip to St John. It takes the ferry 30 to 45 minutes to get there from St Thomas. The tour itself would be improved by more time at fewer stops I believe. The tour guide was great; he added to the experience.

This excursion extended the number of islands we visited. Except for too much commentary by the boat crew, we enjoyed seeing the island and would return for a longer visit.

We had a nice boat ride over to the island then a ride around seeing all the beaches, etc. It was so sad to see the devastation and how little had been done since the hurricane. Beautiful island.
