Christiansted, St. Croix Cruise Port

With a population between 2,500 and 3,000 people, Christiansted is the largest town in the U.S. Virgin Islands’ St. Croix. The town is heavily rooted in the past since it contains the Christiansted National Historic Site. This fort, first constructed in 1738, has been restored to commemorate urban colonial development on the Virgin Islands. There are six historic buildings set up within the site, including Fort Christiansvaern, the Church of Our Lord Sabaoth Steeple Building, the Danish West India and Guinea Company Warehouse, the Scale House, Customs House, and the Government House. The town has preserved the many Danish-style buildings originally constructed by slaves hundreds of years ago. Despite their atrocious beginnings, the buildings are strong stone structures, decorated in vibrant pastel colors and red-tiled roofs. There are a number of scuba shops in town which promote the myriad of water activities that tourists can engage in along the town’s beautiful coastal beaches.
