Thank you everyone for the positive feedback. The trip would never have happened without DDF, so this is the least I can do to give back.
Sounds beautiful! Nice pics but i get the feeling they don't do justice
You bet. It could also be the lousy camera.
Great TR! I just got back from an 8 day trip to St. John and I can relate to your experiences. We actually almost stayed in the villa you stayed in. I contacted the owner however in the end I didn't want to stay in Coral Bay. In retrospect I wouldn't have cared and I really enjoyed the day I spent in Coral Bay.m We stayed in the Westin villa for the first few nights and when it was no longer avail we switched to a house in Fish Bay - right up the road from the Westin. I also loved Salt Pond and enjoyed the snorkeling.

Sorry to hear about the sea urchin - those guys did look really nasty!

Did you make it to any of the north shore beaches? Funny story at Brown Bay I am happy I didn't try it! We also did Budget they really are the best option and they let you take the car over to STJ.
We unfortunately weren't in STJ long enough to get to the north shore beaches, which I regret, since there's supposed to be amazing snorkeling spots there.
In retrospect, I would have stayed the entire time in STJ, and gone over to STT for 1 day. There are so many beautiful area in STJ, each one unique in its own way, that 3 days just isn't enough. STT is nice, but nothing compared to STJ, IMHO.

We were going to, but from my research online it seemed like it's become an active Reform congregation, so we decided to skip it.

Thanks for the TR. We spent one day in STT on a cruise and thought it was very serene and beautiful.

While i wouldn't really consider it a port, Labadee, Haiti (Royal Caribbeans private port)was really nice for us.

Been there too when we cruised on the Allure of the Seas last summer. We did not like it very much.

Not for lack of trying, though.
