After 2 days at sea, we finally arrived at our first destination - the U.S. Island of St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands.

View of St. Thomas as the ship was heading into port.

Approaching the docks. Looks like the Carnival ship 'Valor' got there ahead of us.

Some of the residences, as seen from the ship's aft..
 Apparently, 'non-natives' can't own the land they build their homes on, they can only rent it.  I wonder what they'd do with those multi million $ homes if the lease was revoked?

That's the Captain keeping watch as the Harbour Pilot docks the ship.

Another view from the outdoor cafe at the back of the ship.

Although St. Thomas is part of the U.S., this is one of the first things we saw as we left the ship to go into town.

We didn't take any pictures in town as we'd been there so many times before, but here's one taken on the tram coming back.
