    Is there shopping at the port in St Thomas where our ship the Fantasy docks?

    Ahoy, Merilyn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and congratulations on your upcoming cruise on the gorgeous Disney Fantasy! My crew is also looking forward to a sailing on this beauty, and we are about to burst with excitement about getting back onboard this vessel. I'm sure you are in the same boat as us as you count down the days until your upcoming Eastern Caribbean sailing! In fact, the last time we sailed on the Disney Fantasy, we visited St.Thomas so I'm happy to share our experiences from this port of call.

    The ship docked at the West India Company Dock otherwise known as Havensight. We disembarked and browsed the shops that were located right next to the pier at the Havensight Mall. We found a variety of merchandise available for sale including jewelry, electronics and plenty of perfume and liquor! There were also plenty of souvenir and gift shops because I remember picking up a few t-shirts, Christmas ornaments and magnets. I also remember seeing a few dining options like Señor Frog's if you get hungry while ashore.

    After we finished our shopping, we headed to Paradise Point to take in the most spectacular views of St. Thomas and our beautiful cruise ship from 700 ft. above the port. It was absolutely breathtaking, and we were lucky enough to be there on a picture perfect weather day, which made our photos turn out beautifully. Tickets can actually be bought in advance through Disney Cruise Line Port Adventures either online (Skyride to Paradise Point) or once you are aboard at the Port Adventure Desk on Deck 5. The great thing about this outing is you can walk over at your leisure because It's just across the street from the Havensight Mall I mentioned above. 

    Thank you for cruising by, Merilyn!
