Caribbean Vacation: St. Thomas to Cruz Bay, St. John

Cruz Bay is the primary access point to St. John in the Caribbean.

You're sure to island hop when staying at the Ritz Carlton Club St. Thomas. The hourly ferries make the neighboring islands easily accessble. If you prefer a more luxurious method of island hopping transportation, the Ritz Carlton Club provides the Lady Lynsey, a 53-foot catamaran. The Lady Lynsey is available for half or full days, and can serve cocktails, hors d'ouevres, and an elaborate buffet.

Primary access to St. John is through Cruz Bay Harbor. You will probably want to explore this city first while you're there, before moving on to Coral Bay. Cruz Bay is St. John's main town, and the busiest spot on the island. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes to choose from, as well as excellent shopping. 

Shopping areas in St. John include:

- Mongoose Junction: fine shopping
- Wharfside Village: beachfront shopping mall, custom jewelry, tropical clothing, fine art, gift shops, watersports
- Lumberyard Complex: used to be a lumberyard, now has shops, service establishments, and offices
- Downtown Shops: short walk from Mongood Junction
           - Ferry Dock shops
           - Raintree Court shops
           - Lemon Tree Mall shops
           - Center of Town shops
           - Outskirts of Town shops
