Hello all. I have never heard of a "fish extender", but I am assuming it is a secret santa gift exchange? I have been to both St. Thomas and St. Croix before. In an old company, we had locations on both islands and I got to them every so often. Like everywhere else, there are some very nice parts and some not so nice parts to the islands. But.... the nice parts are very beautiful! If you like shopping, St. Thomas is the place to go. It is much nicer than the Bahamas. Our cruise in December had perfect weather and very calm seas. The Roy Suite was so "wonder"ful, that you almost never wanted to leave the room! We had a group of seven that was pretty tired out from a trip to WDW before, so we did not get to experience all we should have on the ship. I am looking forward to seven days with just the 3 of us, so we can experience as much as possible.
