We just recently completed a cruise in the Caribbean. After departing from Puerto Rico, our first port of call was the US Virgin Islands. The US Virgin Islands consists of three main islands St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix along with countless smaller islands.
The US Virgin Islands is the home to many celebrities including Kelsey Grammer, Oprah Winfrey and others. The main island of St. Thomas is known for its duty free shopping and of course beaches.
I did not spend much time on St. Thomas but instead went to St. John. Its beautiful scenic harbour, many beaches and hilly terrain make it an ideal escape. It is the smallest of the three main islands and was once noted for its sugar plantation but now relies mainly on tourism.
