Hi everyone, We are arriving on the Carnival Valor on Monday, June 30th. We'd like to spend the day in St John. Please tell me if our plan will work.
Ships docks 7am. Plan to be off the ship as close to 7 as possible. (Will this work?). The itinerary says we are there 7-5. Can we really get off at 7? If so, take taxi to Red Hook and then 8am ferry to St John. Take taxi to Trunk Bay for awhile and then taxi to Leinster/Waterlemon.
Plan to take 3pm ferry back to St Thomas. Must be back on ship at 4:30. I thought the 4pm ferry would be cutting it too close.
So my questions are:
Can we realistically make the 8 am ferry?
What time do you need to be back at Red Hook to catch the 3pm back? 2:45?
I realize the cruise offers a tour and that if there is some delay the ship will not wait. However, the cruise tour does not go where we want, when we want.
Thanks for helping me make the best of our day here!
