It was REALLY annoying that we didn't dock at the main port, but instead at a cargo port. NCL then charged $10 per person to get you to the main port. Kinda ridiculous that it wasnt complimentary! We got an excursion at the main port. $20 for a day trip to a beach club that included transportation and some site seeing. Our guide and driver was soo nice he really made our time there very pleasant! Taught us a lot about the island too. Read Less

Best port for duty free shopping so that was our priority. We still had some time so we hired a taxi to take us to Cockleshell Beach.

We just shopped but we loved shopping in the port shops here. They were very nice and we loved the atmosphere. The souvenier type merchandise seemed to be nicest at this stop in general.

Wonderful way to see the island, guide passed along basic history. We were treated to drinks and a sugar cane treat. We also expierenced singing by a group of talented young ladies. There is a tradition for the locals to wave to the tourist on the train and they do so with smiles and vigor. Read Less

We took a Taxi ($16 each way) to S Friars Bay beach (3 miles away) which they left us off at Carambola Beach Club. It was a resort type place with chairs, a bar and restaurant etc. It was a nice place. We paid $30.00 to rent two chairs and an umbrella. I believe it’s $3.00 pp if you use their facilities and don’t rent anything. (They take Credit cards.) The taxi driver sets up a time to pick you back up. He was there exactly when we asked him to be. Had two drinks ($24.00). We spent a little more than we planned but I like the facility and how nice and clean it was. Beach was beautiful as well. Walked around some shops in port and I felt they were overpriced. Shop keepers also hover over you. Big turn off for me. Read Less

If you go, look for Greg's taxi service, he took us out to the beach made scenic stops along the way and did not want paid until he brought us back to the ship. The island is beautiful. Read Less

Again, we hopped a cab on our own to the Shipwreck Bar. This place is a black sand beach that has monkeys hanging around. The food and drinks were great and were very inexpensive.

We hopped off the ship and immediately joined a tour by Beulah (she’s on Trip Advisor and is worth every penny) for very cheap since they were trying to fill the remaining seats. She gave a wonderful history of the island and was funny while doing it. Soda and beer was available for $1. Air conditioned buses took us around to various sites on the island and then to the beach. The total time was around 6 hours but we took the option to return to the ship with some other folks instead of staying at the beach so our tour was around 4 hours and a bargain for what we paid!

St. Kits is definitely worth seeing. I would suggest taking a tour (offered by multiple people once you get off the ship). The tour of the island is really interesting and informative. You can ask for a tour that ends at the beach and the driver will return to pick you up. I would also suggest seeing the museum in town (just past the iron gate). It is small but provides a lot of information about the islands history. We went to Friar's Beach. IT is a bit of an expense so be aware of the cost ahead of time. It was $16 dollars one way to get there. The 2 chairs and umbrella were $30.00 but it was a nice facility. If you are interested in saving some money- you can walk LEFT and you will find a beach bar called "shipwreck' that also has chairs available. The beach is quieter the further in this direction you walk. It was a wonderful relaxing and spectacularly gorgeous beach! Read Less

St Kitts, m y absolute favorite island. We left the cruise port and walked down to a local taxi stand. We negotiated 30.00 total for a drop-off and pick up with a driver named Mate. He took us to Carambola Beach Club about 20 min away. The drive was stunning. It’s 20 dollars for 2 chairs and an umbrella. They offer massages on the beach for 45 dollars. The customer service is top notch here. Bartenders are super friendly. Beach is gorgeous. Drinks and food are a bit pricey, but worth it. Read Less

Renting a scooter is the best way to see the island. There is one road that goes around the island and you can make multiple stops along the way. We visited Romney Manor, Black Rocks, and Reggae beach where we ate at the bar there.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Carombola Beach Club. We rented two chairs and some jet skis which were a lot of fun. Watch out for the little yellow crabs at the beach! We made a new friend!

We traveled via taxi and paid $80 for two to travel to Brimstone Hill Fortress and South East Peninsula (the viewing point where the Caribbean and Atlantic meet). We met others that paid much less - however, we insisted on being the only two in the taxi...so can understand the amounts. Our driver was Chefdon and he was absolutely fabulous. He not only took us to the requested placed but drove us around town as well as pointed out others places and introduced us to people that live there. My excitement for this trip - was sitting in the Immaculate Conception Church while children were in services. It was my highlight - as I went to the school of the same name when a young child in Jamaica and received my confirmation at the church of the same name in Washington, DC. There is a service fee of $10 per person to enter Brimstone Fortress. We had already been informed that the drive may charge extra if we went beyond 45 minutes at the fortress. We felt 45 minutes was more than enough time. If you decide to visit - there is a $1 fee to use the bathroom (not included in the entry fee) and we noticed that several of the rooms in the fort are under renovation. There is a place to purchase drinks and food - did not note the costs - as well as a picnic area. The area to view the point where the Atlantic and Caribbean meet is absolutely beautiful. There are vendors there (clothing, souvenirs, and food/drink).....they only take cash and the prices are reasonable. The viewing area is absolutely breathtaking. We quickly walked in and out of the stores near the pier - nothing really stood out for us. Read Less
