In St. Thomas, you can take a ferry to St. John and a taxi to Trunk Bay. Trunk Bay is one of the top 10 beaches in the world. The water is warm, calm and crystal clear (as long as there isn't a storm around). They have fresh water showers, lockers, snorkel equipment rental, a couple of shops, and a self-guided snorkel tour about 50 yards from the shore. The beach is white sand, with shade available. Take a camera for some breath-taking pictures to/from Trunk Bay. The ferry is $6/pp and I think the cab fare was around $4.50/pp. There is an entrance fee to Trunk Bay and I think it was $2/pp. Do your shopping on St. Thomas, however, the prices are much better. Paradise Island in Nassau is great, there is a public beach next to the Atlantis that is free. The cab fare is inexpensive to get there, and Atlantis is awesome. The straw market is a fun place to visit as well. Have a great cruise!
