St. Thomas is one of the beautiful Virgin Islands you can visit on select Disney Fantasy 7-night Eastern Caribbean itineraries. Once largely occupied by Dutch-owned sugar cane plantations and pirates of the Caribbean, the island is now a haven for water recreation, shopping and sunbathing. During your week of fun on the recently enhanced Disney Fantasy, you’re sure to have a blast exploring St. Thomas and other nearby islands. Here are a few of my suggestions for family-friendly fun:


Doubloon Turtle Cove Sail and Snorkel – On this snorkeling excursion, you’ll feel like a pirate in the Caribbean! Set sail on a doubloon pirate schooner, anchoring at the deserted Turtle Cove off the coast of Buck Island to snorkel among fantastic coral formations, incredible tropical fish. You may even spot sea turtles on this unforgettable Caribbean adventure.

Abi Beach Full Day Escape – The Virgin Islands offer some of the beast beaches in the Caribbean, and multiple Port Adventures whisk you off to pristine white sand and turquoise blue waters. This tranquil escape takes you to a former 18th-century plantation where you can swim, play and soak up the sun at the beautiful Abi Beach. The full-day adventure includes lunch while you overlook glassy waters and distant islands.

Tree Limin’ Extreme Zipline Adventure – Limin’ is local slang for “hanging out,” and on this adventure, you’ll be hanging out in the trees as you soar high over a lush rainforest canopy atop St. Peter Mountain. You’ll cross two sky bridges and six ziplines, including the one-of-a-kind “yo-yo” zipline that lets you travel forward and backward — the only experience of its kind in the Caribbean!

Up next, I’ll give you suggestions for Port Adventures on a 7-night Disney Fantasy cruise to the Western Caribbean. Remember, when the ship’s in port, venture ashore.
