Due to the fact that my brilliant husband left his pants to his suit at home we had to grab a taxi and find Kmart. Once his pants were purchased we took a taxi and went Jewelry shopping for me. We walked back to the ship and stopped at the Butterfly Farm which was just across from the pier. It was great to see and have the Butterfly's fly around and land on us. They also had an amazing bird show at the Butterfly Farm we really enjoyed and we had our picture taken with the Birds after the show.
You have to take a bus tour to get to the train. Between the bus and the train tour you get to see the entire island. Our bus driver was an awesome tour guide, very entertaining and very helpful, I do have some trouble walking and these people were amazingly helpful. The tour lasted approximately 3 1/2 hours. They did have to stop the train a few times due to electrical problems but, it was not a big deal. Once back to the pier we got MONKEYED!! Anyone who ever cruised to St Kitts would understand this term. We were approached by a gentleman with several monkeys with him and we just weren't quick enough to say NO, the monkeys were placed on us(heads,shoulders etc)and our picture was taken. The Monkeys were adorable and a couple of them had diapers on, they seemed to be well cared for and the man was polite again it was not a big deal just unexpected.
My husband did a snorkeling tour while I stayed on the ship. He said it was a good excursion but, I don't have any details. We did have dinner off the ship in port at Pinchos with another group of friends from Cruise Critic. The food and service were great, the view amazing, you eat on the Pier and we could see the ship all lit up from the restaurant it was an amazing site. The Sunset was breath taking. The restaurant was an easy Taxi ride away and the driver gave us his number to call him when we were finished.
This tour was arranged by Linda one of our cruise Critic friends, the tour was amazing and our guide Gigi was very informative. We saw the oldest Cemetery in the western hemisphere. An Historical Library/Museum, the Liquor Factory and the Oldest Synagogue in the Western Hemisphere. What a truly awesome site. We took the floating bridge to get back to the pier and you guessed it while we were crossing it started to float open to allow a boat to pass. We ran for the other side of the bridge thinking we would be stuck on the bridge for hours and miss the cruise ship. It opened for a small ship for just a few minutes which would explain why we were the only ones running.
