We booked an excursion through vacationstogo.com to spend the day at Coral World and swim with the sea turtles. The MSC website had very little excursions to offer, so we looked elsewhere. Coral World was not as exciting as we thought it would be, you can get through the 'mini sea world' in an hour. Swimming with the sea turtle was awesome though! Great experience! Afterwards, we walked to a nearby beach that was packed.... swam in the ocean for a bit, and caught a cab back to the cruise port. Read Less

St. Thomas was pretty, but not spectacular. In retrospect, maybe we should have ferried over to St. John. We chose the Coral World shore excursion which lasted about 5 hours including transportation. Part of it was a semi-submersible ride among a coral reef and we saw some pretty cool tropical fish. The kids especially liked the sawfishes. It also included access to the Underwater Enchantment and Ocean Park, where they touched starfish and sea cucumbers. It was fun. The guides were lackluster though and there were iguanas everywhere which was great (for the kids) or not great (for mom). I guess it depends on your perspective. Lol. A word of warning to the parents though about St. Thomas in general. The only means of transportation on the island besides boats is open-air, open-side trolley taxis. This means playing defense the entire ride as the drivers are driving like maniacs on bumpy windy roads and the family is sliding around on bench seating without seatbelts. THD and I were hanging on to all three of our babies for dear life. It was stressful. Read Less

We did the shark encounter which included admission to the park. The encounter was great (you do not get to touch the sharks), we spent a lot of time in the water with them. The photos they took were great and the flash drive a great deal with all the pics included. We also walked to Coki beach and snorkeled for a bit. But it was crowded. All in all a great half day on St Thomas. Read Less

In St Thomas, we took an RCI excursion to Coal World, mostly because it was accessible for my dad. The port itself was lovely and well maintained. There were plenty of shops to browse while we waited for the tour operator. The transportation was very good, an open air bus. Not terribly informative during the drive but that was fine with us too. Coral World is small, not a lot of food choice so if you have allergies or picky eaters bring something. It can easily be seen n the 2 hours allotted. Coki Beach is right next to Coral World. Nice beach and some in our party stayed to enjoy it rather than shop downtown. A word of warning though, don't wait for too long after Coral World closes to look for a taxi if you stay at e beach. Our friends got the very last one in an empty parking lot only a short while after closing. Read Less

This was an interesting day. Coral World is sort of an aquarium/ nature rehabilitation centre. It's quite run down and some exhibits are a bit sad looking. Overall though, we enjoyed the day here and they also have a lovely beach area.

The park has so much potential, but it is quite run-down. There are many aquariums and wildlife to view, but tanks are dirty, buildings are old and cracky. The semi-submarine was cool, but we could not see very much because the water was cloudy. Plus, we did not go out very far--just kept going in circles seeing the same things. I would rather have spent more time on the boat and gone out further rather than spend most of the time at the park.The park was not close to the ship either. It was a very scary 30 minute ride each way up and down steep mountains on very narrow roads. Read Less
