 Accidental Cruiser in the West Indies

Northbound St. Croix, USVI  

St. Croix

St. Croix lies all by itself to the south of the other US possesions and across an often choppy channel. It boasts a fuel facility and refinery but is largely not on the cruise ship itinerary in the same way St. Thomas is. It also boasts some of the worst race relations in the Caribbean and has a somewhat tense air about it.. We had a great time on our visit exploring the old Danish colonial buildings and had fun passages both to and from St. John.
