After spending our morning on an ecotour at Cas Cay, and our afternoon navigating to a vegetarian cafe in Charlotte Amalie, we were back aboard the cruise ship. With iced coffee beverages in hand, we found the perfect spot on one of the upper open decks of the Caribbean Princess. Finally, for the first time on this vacation, we had planned our time effectively in order to glance over the railing as we sailed away. St. Thomas is such a gorgeous island in the US Virgin Islands that it couldn’t help but offer beautiful views. The scenes became more and more stunning as we sailed away from the island. The highly populated areas dwindled, revealing vibrant green mountainsides. I partially envied those who were still riding on the pirate ships or smaller sailboats, though I was eager to find out what the evening aboard the cruise ship would bring. Plus, we were headed to the Turks and Caicos the next day, a place where I’d never been before. We were able to see several other isolated plots of land as we drifted across the sea. In one of those occasions where pictures speak louder than words, let us show you 24 stunning photos of St Thomas from the ocean.
The entire day made me fall in love with the island even more, and this scenery was a fitting farewell. I’m sure I’ll see you again, St. Thomas.
