yeah I heard that story too, but that would be cool if it was a nice island instead of an industral port. Baby Doll is the nickname my husband has for me...awwwww isn't that just to cute..I like yours too. We are flying out of California so a long haul. Our date is March 2. I am into checking hotels right now and the Sheraton would be nice, but a whooping $280.00 a night! I am leaning towards the Hotel Milano in old town. Not far from the port and although not a fancy dancy Hotel it is owned by a local family and I like that. 2 nights there in high season is $210.00 for a small room to $350.00 for a nice room up front. But this is for 2 days. One review said it was a little noisy but ear plugs thrown in the suitcase will fix that, most reviews was positive. Beings they only book 2 rooms at high season on the weekends it is ok cause we need one day for jet lag anyway and be rested for the cruise. First port St Thomas and I want to be rested and not just dragin my butt off the ship. My vacation planner at Carnival knows I am not excited about spending all this money to get there to miss out on the two best ports. But we will see. Have you been to these islands before? We haven't. Maybe if you have you could give us some pointers.
