Default WHERE is ship docked?

I know where you can find out WHAT ships will be in port (cruisecal.com) - but is there a place to find out WHERE the ships are going to be docked????

In a nutshell: A friend is going to be on the Zuiderdam while we're in St. Thomas onboard the Norwegian Pearl. We want to meet up while in St. Thomas, but not sure where either ship docks.

If you don't know where I can find this information, can anyone suggest a place to meet up? We were going to meet at Hard Rock Cafe - but went online at Hard Rock and discovered there is no longer one in St. Thomas!!! (I know there WAS - we've eaten there and hubby has many shirts.)

Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

See http://www.ships.vi/, the Cruise Ships link at http://st-thomas.com/, or http://www.**********/general_usvi/cruiseship/.

Most ships dock at Havensight. If both your ships are docking there then you might want to meet at the information booth just outside the cruise dock main gate, see http://paradisepointtramway.com/map.html. http://www.virginislandsmap.com/stth...ght/index.html and http://havensightmall.com/ contain alternative maps. Or one of you can simply take a short walk to the boarding ramp of the other's ship and wait there.

If one of the ships docks in Crown Bay then you could meet in Charlotte Amalie. There is a small park, Emancipation Park, that has a bust of some personage with benches around it, see http://www.virginislandsmap.com/stth...arlotteamalie/ for a map.

WOW!! Thank you ever so much! The third link that you gave me was the charm! Have now discovered that we're at Havensight and the Zuiderdam is at Crown Bay. So looks like we'll be possibly meeting at that park.

Thanks again!

Just one note, Princess is using Crown Bay exclusively now for it's ships so a lot more ships are docking at Crown Bay than previously. Even if no other ships are in port, Princess uses Crown Bay, where it used to be that Havensight was the main dock and Crown Bay was simply for overflow.

On the Zuiderdam last year, we docked at Crown Bay. This year on Princess, we'll be docking at Crown Bay again. I think I'll need to do another cruise that goes to St. Thomas so I can see Havensite!

PS The Zuiderdam is a great ship! Wonderfully friendly crew!!

Before a cruise, I've been checking out the websites for the various ports we're going to. Some have a chart or calendar with the expected docking locations for each ship.
