St. Croix Cruise Ship Schedule - Arrival Information

Welcome Cruise Ship Passengers!

Get ready for a day packed full of fun! St Croix in the US Virgin Islands is a traveler’s paradise and a wonderful port of call for cruise ships. You will enjoy the fact that you don’t have to battle large crowds to enjoy the St. Croix experience, as there is usually just one cruise ship in port at a time. Once you step from the ship onto land, a multitude of St. Croix activities will be found. Yes, St. Croix has something for everyone on a cruise ship visiting St. Croix!

Your cruise ship will dock at the recently renovated waterfront of Frederiksted, the smaller of the two main towns on the island. This quaint town provides a beautiful setting with many restored and un-restored, historical buildings, historic Fort Frederik, shops, restaurants, beautiful sandy beaches and much more. There will be many vendors on the waterfront selling island art, crafts, jewelry and of course T-shirts! From Frederiksted you can enjoy several island tours and close to town you can enjoy several beaches and beach bars. You may also want to take a taxi into historic downtown Christiansted, the former capitol of the US Virgin Islands. U.S. citizens visiting St. Croix can take advantage of the most generous duty free allowance in the Caribbean...$1,600 per person! Click here for more duty free shopping information.

Things To Do While Visiting St. Croix

There are many fun St. Croix tours to enjoy. Tour the Cruzan Rum factory and learn about the process of making this tasty drink and don’t forget the samples at the end of the tour (of course you must be at least 18 to drink!). A tour of the Whim Plantation is a great way to step back in time to see how sugar cane was processed. Get of glimpse of what life was like in the 1800s as you tour through the restored great house and old slave quarters. If eco-tourism is more to your liking, you can view beautiful St. Croix flora and fauna at the St. George Botanical Gardens while strolling by interesting plantation ruins or take in a hike through the rainforest.  You can explore the island by car, following the St. Croix Heritage Trail, a 72-mile driving tour that connects our Caribbean island's historic sites and attractions and includes many significant natural areas. 

A visit to St. Croix’s Historic Harbor town of Christiansted is also a highlight. One of the finest, intact examples of old Danish architecture, this town offers historical sites, forts, great duty free shopping, sumptuous restaurants, and more.

If you feel like some activity is in order, how about our land and water sports. A day on one of our three golf courses will challenge you while you take in the breathtaking scenery. There are numerous SCUBA diving companies that will take you to the world class dive sites around St. Croix. Jet ski tours and sailing tours are also a great way to spend the day. A sail to Buck Island and its underwater snorkeling trail on a catamaran is a must!  Sport fishing is another exciting activity, as the Caribbean waters are full of Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo and other delicious fish.

If relaxing is more your speed (or should we say lack of speed), you'll find numerous beautiful beaches where you can lay around, take in the sun and St. Croix's beauty. Cane Bay Beach is just one of the many locations on St. Croix that offers awesome swimming, diving, snorkeling, kayaking and horseback riding. You can also enjoy several waterfront beach bars while visiting Cane Bay.

These are just some of the fun activities on the island of St. Croix. So take a tour, go to the rainforest, jump in the water, or just lie around as you sip on your favorite concoction. Whatever you do, you will soon discover that one day on St. Croix is just not enough . In fact, we won’t be surprised if you decide soon after your visit that you’ll just have to come back again to experience more of the beautiful island of St Croix!
