The two island groups consist of the USVI of St Thomas, St Croix and St John and a number of smaller atolls. The BVI consist of the main isles of Tortola, Gorda, Jost Van Dyke, Anegada and around 60 smaller atolls including the private resorts such as Guana, Necker and Peter; which are part of the Caribbean Leeward chain.
The BVI are among the most popular cruise and sailing destinations in the World attracting scores of private yachts which can explore the secrets of the BVI chain and still feel like there is enough space for everyone. Gems such as Norman (the inspiration for "Treasure Island"), Anegada, Cooper and Green Cay are waiting to be explored.
The USVI consist of three large islands of which the main one is St Thomas with it's capital Charlotte Amalie; together with St John and St Croix. The capital of Charlotte Amalie was named after a Danish Queen and is a busy town and one of the most popular cruise port destinations in the Caribbean. Gems such as Trunk Bay and Cruz Bay (the main port of Saint John) are popular shore excursions for visiting cruise ship passengers.
The majority of cruise ships departing from San Juan in Puerto Rico or Miami and operating in the Caribbean will call in at the St Thomas cruise port.
