By: | Date:

St Thomas is well known in the cruising community for being one of the best ports for shopping. Some will say that it is the best considering the U.S. Residents duty-free allowance of $1,600 per person. But besides this allowance, it is also true that St. Thomas has a fantastic number of shops. The cruise ship passenger will find the largest concentration of shops in the historical center of Charlotte Amalie.

The Shops on the Two Cruise Docks

Next to the two cruise ship docks - Havensight and Crown Bay - you will also find some of the top names and brands. Next to the Havensight Dock, the cruise passenger will find high-end design shops along the wonderful promenade of the upscale Marina that is the Yacht Haven Grande.

Alleys and Passages

Although many top shops are in the Main Street of Charlotte Amalie - aka Dronningens Gade - don't feel intimidated to explore the alleys and passages between this street and the waterfront.
