Welcome to Cruise-Chat! Yes, the roads in St. John can be quite treacherous, so unless you are very experienced at driving a scooter on narrow, windy and steep terrain, pass and take the local open air bussses. They run almost continuously, are quite inexpensive and an easy way to get to Trunk Bay or any of the beaches on the island. Most of the shopping is located within walking distance of the Ferry Terminal so transportation is not needed. Have fun - but be safe!
