Has anyone ever taken the cruise ship full day snorkel tour that goes to Christmas Cove and Honeymoon beach? It shows they use the sailboat called BONES. Just wondering how crowded this could get - there are 5 cruise ships in port that day we are in St. Thomas this month!

Haven't done that one. Almost all of the sail/snorkel excursions we've booked in St. Thomas have had no more than 40 people on board. Of course, this depends on the size of the ship. Some could hold many more. 5 ships in port isn't too bad, they're used to more there. There's some great snorkeling there, so it sounds like this excursion would be right up my alley. If you decide to do this, please let us know how it was when you return. Best wishes!

Thanks Penny3333. Wanted to do Trunk Bay on our own but being first time cruisers figured it would be best to do a ship's tour.
Have appreciated the information you have provided on this chat site

If you have alot of time in St Thomas, then go to Trunk Bay on your own. Its easy, get a taxi to Red Hook then catch the ferry. When you get to St John, get another open air taxi and take it to Trunk Bay. It will save you alot of money and time. Carnival always goes later than you can get there yourself and they dont spend half as much time on the beach as you can if you do it yourself. We have done it 3 times with no problems....have fun, its georgeous!!!!

I'm with the last poster. We grabbed a cab with several other people coming off the ship "on their own" as well--it is worth it to have the leisure there. Most cruise ship tours are only at the beach about 1-1/2 hours after you deduct transportation, and that is simply not enough time in paradise.
