Port of Call St Thomas, US Virgin Islands

St Thomas, US Virgin Islands Carnival Valor and Destiny moored at Charlotte Amalie Harbor. St Thomas is a beautiful Caribbean island with a rich history. In the 18th century, it was a thriving pirate port, the hideout of swashbucklers like Blackbeard. Thankfully today it's a peaceful place, home to gorgeous beaches, sparkling Caribbean views, and verdant hilly landscapes. Most cruise ships dock at Havensight pier, about a 5 minute cab ride from central Charlotte Amalie, others dock further out (about a mile and a half west of town) at Crown Point Marina.
