St. Kitts was a new stop for us. We arranged an island tour on our own with Royston Tours. We had a full day tour with Royston, and would do this again. I recommend booking some kind of a tour if you're a first-timer to St. Kitts, as the port shopping area is much smaller than what you might be accustomed to in other ports. It kind of reminded me of the port at Grand Turk, if that gives anyone a point of reference. Read Less

Was most disappointed that St. Kitts seems to be turning into another St. Thomas with the commercialism; however, shopping is excellent. We took the Scenic Rail Tour which was relaxing & included free drink (alcoholic) & local ... Read More

Again, gorgeous. These islands are so beautiful! No excursion here we just got a cab ($2.50 each way per person) and spent the day at the Marriott. Nice day. Tough casino though! Shopped by the pier which leads to downtown. Not as nice a ... Read More
Again, gorgeous. These islands are so beautiful! No excursion here we just got a cab ($2.50 each way per person) and spent the day at the Marriott. Nice day. Tough casino though! Shopped by the pier which leads to downtown. Not as nice a port town as in the other two ports. But they did have a lot of outdoor cooking going on and lots of drinks for sail in the market.

In St. Kitts, we took the Mr X's water taxi to Mr X's Shiggity Shack Beach on Frigate Bay-a ten minute ride for $10 USD round-trip. Not bad. This is a beautiful beach, but not upscale. The padding on the lounge chairs show their ... Read More
In St. Kitts, we took the Mr X's water taxi to Mr X's Shiggity Shack Beach on Frigate Bay-a ten minute ride for $10 USD round-trip. Not bad. This is a beautiful beach, but not upscale. The padding on the lounge chairs show their age a bit, but that's small potatoes compared to the breathtaking view out into Frigate Bay and the mean drinks served up by the bartender of the Shiggity Shack! The food looked pretty darn good too. The water is calm, but the bottom is a little rocky, but you can see clear to the bottom so there's no problem. We had a great day. Read Less

St. Kitts is late in making the transition for a sugarcane-based economy to a tourism-based economy, and in a way, that makes St. Kitts an interesting destination. While there are already a lot of resorts, there is an unspoiled quality to the island. We did a tour of a famous fort as well as Romney Manor which had an interesting batik studio as well as a lush tropical garden. After seeing the incredible scenery in Dominica, St. Lucia, and Antigua, St. Kitts is only "moderately amazing" as it's not lush or blessed with a stunning harbor, but there are sweeping views from the mountains of neighboring islands such as Nevis, Saba and Statia. Like Antigua, there were taxi touts pressuring cruise passengers to take tours with them, but they were less pushy here and when you said "thank you, I already have a tour," they seemed pleased enough with that to say "All right then, have a good time." While I enjoyed St. Kitts very much, I don't think I would pick a cruise specifically for this island the way I might to see St. Lucia or Dominica. Read Less
