We are going to St. Thomas, San Juan, St. Maarten, Tortola, and Nassau in December (Jewel of the Sea). I was wondering where the best shopping is, and what do you like to shop for.

St. Thomas is the best shopping port if you are looking at jewelry.

I thought the shopping was best on St. Martin(Maarten). St. Thomas was a close second. I didn't think the shopping was too good on Nassau. I have yet to go to San Juan (I will go there next month on my next cruise). I have never been to Tortola as well.

St. Thomas and St. Maarten are the best places for shopping. Nassau is a fun place. My suggestion is to take a cab to the Atlantis, tour that and then go to the public beach adjacent to the Atlantis. Tortola is a beautiful island. There is a lovely beach in the Northwest corner of the island. We did 2 catamaran sail/snorkels that went over by Norman's Island that were great. There are plenty of cabs there, so we grabbed one and he took us around the island. He charged is $30 for a 3 hour tour. My recommendations in San Juan are the Bacardi Factory tour for some yummy samples and/or a tour of Old San Juan. Best wishes and have a wonderful cruise!

Thanks for all your help. This is our 5th cruise, but first time to these ports. We are taking our 4 adult children and their spouses. We aren't able to get all of us together very often so this should be fun. I know the most important thing for all the girls will be the shopping!
