In St. Kitts we took the tour of Clay Plantation which was excellent. The animal refuge was clean and provided safe spacious rehabilitation for the animals. The rum punch was amazing and the fruit punch was fresh and quenched thirst. Part two was Frigate Bay Beach. It was the WORST beach ever. There were sharp jagged rocks in the water and many people had their shins torn up. There was only ONE changing room and it was filthy. If you can take a tour of just the plantation, I would recommend it, but avoid Frigate bay Beach. Read Less

Took a taxi tour vs the cruise offered tours. We negotiated the price with Sam the Man (find and use him). He took us around the island, near the Fort, into the Batik gardens and then to Frigate Bay on the far side of the island. St Kitts is trying to become like St Marteen and other islands nearby, but has a long way to go. The have the small village of shops at the end of the pier like most islands, but once you leave that you find yourself in downtwon St Kitts - crowded and not all that clean. Litter and trash on every corner. Compared to Frigate Bay which is very clean and well kept, it was disappointing. If you go there, head on over to Frigate Bay…beautiful and scenic. FYI..the railway tour is very $$ and they now charge $10US to get into the fort.. Read Less

We took the ferry ($20 each, round trip) to Nevis and rented a cab ($50 for two hours). Stops included two churches, a beach, and the pottery. It was nice to visit an island that has been undisturbed by Diamonds International and commercialization. The ferry is a short walk from the pier at St. Kitts. The ferry schedule only allowed us two hours on Nevis. Read Less

After talking to the Visitor's Bureau at the pier, we decided to take a taxi to Cockleshell Bay for $6.50/person each way. At the beach we rented lounges for $5/each and an umbrella for $10. The beach is pretty and overlooks Nevis. There are a couple of bars and restaurants on the beach, a bucket of 6 local beers is $15. There are restrooms and changing rooms with showers here. We chose Cockleshell because of the facilities, some of the beaches closer to the pier only have port-a-potty restrooms. The drive to and from the beach was neat, providing many picture taking opportunities. Read Less

South Friars was an enjoyable taxi ride to an upscale but not expensive beachside place. Very calm water, OK snorkeling. Get there early to score an umbrella. Nice people.

We booked with Miles from Nevis Yacht Charters and had a great day on a private sailing trip. We snorkeled in this great little cove with a ship wreck and Alvin, the first mate, jumped into the water and showed us some fish and a whole lobster family! While we are all experienced snorkelers, this would also be a great trip for beginner snorkelers as the conditions were really good. If you have a family or a small group and want to get away from the crowds for a day, this is the excursion for you! Read Less

Took a taxi for $20 pp around the island. The cab driver was awesome and gave us a great history lesson of the Island. I found the locals to be very pushy and became mad if you did not want to buy their stuff. Watch out for the locals who have the baby monkeys they will charge you to have a pic taken with them . I do not recommend doing this Read Less

All we did here was walk around the shopping area at the cruiseport. It was cute, usual tourist stuff, nothing special to buy. Note: this was the best place to buy duty free liquor that we saw, better than St Maartin!

We took a cab to Cockleshell Beach, which is on the farthest souther tip of St Kitts, overlooking Nevis. $7pp, each way. The roads were horrendous on the way. I've never felt so many potholes! The beach was OK. We ended up at the Reggae Beach Bar. Umbrellas and chairs were $5. Views were nice, the water was calm and crystal clear, but the beach was a little dirty and crowded. Food at the beach bar was tasty but pricey. Don't miss the conch chowder! Read Less

Then took a water taxi $10 each way to a place w/poor snorkeling, but had a good swim on a rough beach. Read Less

Two in our group took a beach excursion which they loved. Got a massage on the beach for $50, private cabana and a little tour of the island as they went to the beach. They loved it and want to go back sometime. Our other son, wanted to go to the fort, but they wanted $50 just for the cab ride, so he elected not to go and came back to the ship. We "old folks" just hung out at the ship, enjoyed the exercise room, whirlpool, and the peace and quiet. About 2pm we got off the ship to meet the rest of the group and visit the local shopping area. It was very clean and nice. Read Less

St Kitts is another British Island. If I could have made selections, there would have been only one British Island. Prices were comparable to Antigua and local arts and crafts were the best buys for my money. I

Just walked around in the town. Visited the little national museum, which was worthwhile, went into both the catholic and the Anglican churches, both in which choirs were practicing for Easter services. Interesting for me, as I sing in the church choir at home. Also went by the cricket stadium, but it was closed. Interesting just walking around the non-touristy streets. Read Less

I booked a 2 tank dive ($105) with Pro Divers on my own. www.prodiversstkitts.com I was met by Pro Divers right outside the Port Zante entrance and it was a very short walk to the dive boat. There were 3 other divers scheduled for the trip but they didn't show up and I ended up having the whole dive boat to myself. Captn Auston is my dive buddy. It's a 20 - 30 min ride to the 1st dive site - Ponds Bar. This is a wall / reef dive 60 - 70ft and there is a ton of coral, fish and critters to see. It's dives like this I wish I had a digital underwater camera. Bottom time is 55 mins and I loved every minute of it. Our next stop is Green Point, 60 - 70 ft with a bottom time of 55 mins. Just like the 1st dive there was a ton of coral, fish and critters. I saw the largest balloon puffer fish I have ever seen. Now I do know that things appear bigger than they really are while underwater but this thing was HUGE, it's big round eye balls were the size of golf balls. St Kitts is definitely on my list of places to visit again and stay awhile. I still had some time on my hands after a quick shower and change of clothes. Based on the recommendation from Margot from Pro Divers I hired a taxi and went to Brimstone Hill. As my luck would have it I ended up riding with none other than Capt Sunshine AKA Kenny (www.stkittscaptainsunshine.com). He gave me a great last min private taxi rate and let me know that I would only have time to do an express tour of Brimstone Hill. It's a 20 - 25 min ride from the ship to the Hill depending on traffic. Brimstone Hill is awesome and I'm glad I bit the bullet and spent the short amt of time I had. I will be going back and would love to have Kenny as my guide any day of the week. I can't wait to get back to St Kitts !! Lessons Learned - Go to St Kitt's on an airplane and stay awhile.   Read Less

We chose this particular cruise because of our desire to see St. Kitts and Nevis. We have been to most of the other islands in the area on other cruises and loved it! We were looking forward to our Catamaran cruise, but Oceania cancelled going to St. Kitts and Nevis. Although there was a medical emergency requiring a stop in the Turks & Caicos, the passengers all felt that it should have been handled differently---(e.g. give us an alternate destination, rather than a 5th day at sea, or have an on-board party, performance, or event to make up for it. Ora partial refund or free drink which, although not legally required, seems like the right thing to do. Read Less
