    4 adults doing cruise , nov 2 to eastern Caribbean. port are Tortuga and St thomas. we are not planning on doing any excursions, ut want to get off the ship. Is there anything to do within right at the port such as shops?

    Ahoy Linda!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I am glad you sailed back with a great question about the exciting ports the Disney Fantasy will take you to this fall.  My family loves to plan out our port days as it is a great way to pass the time as your countdown continues to shrink!

    You will find in both Tortola and St. Thomas that there are shops and eateries within walking distance of the port for you to enjoy.  It is also easy to find a taxi in both of these ports if you want to take a quick ride over to a local beach or to the main shopping centers on the island.

    In Tortola, you can also catch a ferry to some of the other local islands in this chain.  Be sure to carefully review the ferry schedule to ensure you are back before the all aboard time.  In St. Thomas, there is a lot of activity around the port.  One of our favorite things to do in St. Thomas is take the tram to the top of the hill right across from the port.  You can easily walk here, and the views from the top of the hill are beautiful.  There is also a small restaurant and shops at the top for you to enjoy a bite to eat while you have the opportunity to take some great pictures of the Disney Fantasy and the island.

    Stop by the Port Adventures desk onboard before you debark in each location.  They can offer suggestions and available Port Adventures as well in the event you decide to take a guided tour.

    Enjoy making magical memories, Linda!  Bon voyage!  Angie
