Late afternoon arrival suggestions


Recommended Posts

We’ll be on Royal Caribbean’s oasis next summer. We arrive to st Thomas at 330pm and we are there until 1030pm. Any suggestions on excursions? We have two families, nine in total, ages 5 to 44. Thanks in advance.

The sun sets early, usually around 6 so you won’t have much daylight time to see things. There will be safari busses where you disembark that can take you on a brief tour. The shops in town usually close around 6 but some will stay open later if there are ships in port.

Royal Caribbean you are porting at Crown Bay, I would catch a safari van to downtown Charlotte Amalie, sightsee and do some shopping, that late in the afternoon I wouldn't spend the time or $$$ on going to a beach. 

Walking downtown lots of fun back in the day it was always a big party, it is when I'm there anyway. Go have fun.

Another idea is to go to a beach- Lindbergh or Honeymoon on Water Island are the closest- and then get a ride to Havensight. Take the skyride to Paradise Point have some drinks and enjoy the sunset and view.

I would take a taxi to gorgeous sapphire Beach and sit at the new bar, have some great food and cocktails and take a dip in the water there. They are open until 8pm on weekdays..later on weekends with music . Kids can play on the beach and also there is an area for families to sit

Hello!! You don't happen to have any idea what the taxi fare roughly is from Havensight to Sapphire Beach roundtrip do you? New Bar? That's great!!

I was at Sapphire about 10 years ago not much there but the beach and water were great. Did Secret Harbour last time on STT, headed to either Sapphire or  back to Trunk this time. Thank you for any info you could provide. Todd

If you enjoy sailing, one of the nice things about  having your ship stay later in the evening is the ability to do a sunset cruise.  It is such a relaxing way to spend a couple of hours.
