 Coral World Ocean Park and Scenic Drive   [ST42]

Rating: 7

Take a guided tour to Coral World in St. Thomas, with a stop at Mountain Top along the way. Cruiser reviews are mostly positive: Coral World is a “wonderful adventure,” a bit like “Sea World” but “more science-oriented.” “Kids love it,” and “see all kinds of sea life” and “pet a shark.” The disappointments were the drive which was “not well narrated,” and the length of time at Coral World (“only an hour and a half”). Cruisers did enjoy Coral World, but many would “do it on their own” next time. An “Easy” version of tour is available (see page 290) at the same price for guests in wheelchairs or with walking difficulties. (On Your Own: See page 287)
