Yes...when you exit off the ship, turn to your left and follow the pathway that takes you to a shopping area with a bunch of different stores...everything from sunglasses and liquor to Gucci & Prada

Yes the shopping area is quite close to the ship. It is safe.

We loved the shopping in St. Thomas. Have fun!!

Absolutely - clean, lovely area, plenty of shops, friendly people, nice selection. You should also go downtown to the market. Again great area and fun shopping. A nice (long) walk along the shore, or plenty of transportation available both ways.

Easy, fun. Rates second only to Old Town in San Juan for port shopping IMHO.
