    Do you need to have a reservation in order to get on the next available ferry when you arrive? We are concerned as to which ferry we will be able to make. our plane arrives at 1:45 and we had planned to rent a car at the St. Thomas airport and take the ferry barge but are concerned we might miss the one we had a reservation on and then have to wait two hours….
