[QUOTE=hillfamily4;1070248]Appreciate all the advice. If we don’t do an excursion, does anyone have any insight on what is available within walking distance of the port?[/QUOTE]
Not much. You can walk to the skyride to Paradise Point, but except for the view you will pay ridiculous prices for drinks and gifts up top if you wish to purchase. My kids were 6 and 4 when we were there in October. We didn’t do an excursion. It might be where we docked, but you would have to take a taxi into town. It’s known as a place for shopping. I would suggest the snorkeling in St. Thomas and doing nothing in Castaway Cay. Castaway Cay looks as if there is plenty to do there without doing an excursion.
Either way have a great trip! I just got off from a week cruise with only my hubby and I am dying to go back!
