Thousands of cruisers visiting St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands are being told by their cruise operators to stay clear of the downtown area due to a water shortage that's been going on for more than six weeks.

St. Thomas is the most developed of the Virgin Islands. Stay here if you want to shop, see historic sights, play golf, or dine out a lot. The more luxurious resorts are on the island’s eastern end. St. John is mostly national park, and as the least developed of the three islands is good if you want a small-island feel and easy access to great hiking. That said, most of the villas aren’t right on the beach. St. Croix has everything from simple inns to luxury resorts, including some places that specialize in diving on the north coast. That said, none of its beaches rivals those on St. Thomas or St. John.
If you're going to a Caribbean Island, the chances are good that you're looking for a way to take a break from daily life. To unplug, as it were, and reset. Fortunately, there's an easy way to achieve this most worthy goal: an all-inclusive resort, where you won't need to think about a thing once you arrive. And if you're looking for a touch of luxury? Well, the Caribbean's got that too. From James Bond hideouts to family-friendly retreats, these luxury properties are worth every penny.
