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

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

Again, no shore excursions we opted to walk around a bit by ourselves. Very little to see, although we found it interesting to experience a not-so-touristy section of town once we walked a few blocks from the ship.

We hired our own private taxi via a Cruise Critic Board recommendation. We e mailed and set it up with Rose and Jims Taxi.Jim had a great Toyota van that was perfect for our group.For $30 per person we saw the Batik Factory, Brimstone Hill Fortress, and the volcanic beaches on the Atlantic side of the island. Breath taking scenery and lush island vistas. A photo op a minute. Read Less

At this stop we did a tour with Royston Island Tours. This trip was excellent! Royston met us when we got off the ship where we headed for his van and started the tour through the town and then out on the country side around the island. We stopped at a Batik shop to see a demonstration and then went to Fort Brimstone. After we drove to where Royston kept his 4X4 Jeep which he took up a mountain path where we got a great view of the island and the rain forest. We then got back in the van and toured the rest of the spots on the island and had lunch at one of the beaches. After lunch we went snorkeling for a while and then headed back to the ship. The tour covered pretty much the entire island..it is pretty much a custom tour with Royston taking you wherever you want to go so it is a great way to see the island at your own pace. I highly recommend the Royston tour for this stop. Read Less

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.
