We had taken the St. Kitts Scenic Railway before (and enjoyed it tremendously) so we opted for a trip to Caribelle Batik at Romney Manor followed by a tour of the Brimstone Hill fortress, both through Carnival. Romney Manor, located in the small town of Sandy Point, is beautiful and very well preserved, surrounded by lush tropical gardens. The Brimstone Hill fortress is a must-see for anyone who likes history. It also offers spectacular views of the Caribbean coast of St. Kitts and the neighboring islands of Saba and St. Eustatius (Statia.) Read Less

Our cruise stop was Basseterre, St. Kitts. We decided to take a taxis, which we got outside the port gate, to the South Friars beach for $20 for 4 people. This is a secluded beach offering a bar & food place to eat & relax & rented beach chairs & cover if you desired. This was a nice place to relax & enjoy the nice reef to snorkel just off the beach that we spent most of our time seeing all the fish & coral formations. The bar overlooked the calm bay waters which my brother & wife enjoyed. Read Less

We took an early morning excursion on St. Kitts booked through Royal Caribbean: Sky Safari Zip Lining. It was one of the first excursion we booked because we knew we wanted to zip line at some point during the trip. Upon disembarking on the ship, we joined up with our group inside the port terminal. After we were all there, they split us into groups for the taxi ride to the Sky Safari place. It was about 20 minutes, and the taxi driver was informative along the way giving a mini tour. Upon arriving at the Sky Safari location, we suited up for our first training zip line. It was short, and low to the ground. Next, we headed up the mountain for the real zip lines. There were four more lines, and all were a little different and fun! The guides were very professional. You can take your still and video camera on the zip line for some great pictures. After the 4 lines were over, we took at short walk to the botanical garden and a gift shop. It appears to be just part of their "package" but not really necessary. Upon arriving back in the town, we headed to the Immigration Office inside the port terminal to get our passports stamped since this was the first foreign port. We then walked through the town for shopping. There were some neat stores with lots of variety including an outdoor market. While not as many shops as St. Thomas, it definitely had a variety of nice stores with good tourist items. Read Less

We liked St Kitts - good shopping right by the pier (but get used to Diamond and gem shops - you are going to see a lot of them on every island - and if the Celebrity Today 'newspaper' is going to recommend a shop on an island, its going to sell jewellery! We did the Zip-line safari which was great fun for all ages - not too strenuous. Some people moaned that there were only four lines and that there were more on other islands (then go to another island!) Overall this was good fun and was about half an hour from the ship, so you got to see some of the villages and scenery as well Read Less

We had no shore excursion planned. We just walked off the ship and got a taxi and headed off to a beach. I can't remember the name of the beach but it was at one end of the island and appeared to be in an area that was being developed. Our taxi driver arranged to come back at an appointed time to pick us up. The beach was pretty windy, as was most of the island that we saw. There were a couple of restaurants and places to rent chairs. It wasn't my favorite beach area but I think maybe we just didn't choose well. Our taxi drive, who was very, very nice picked us up at our appointed time and on the way back to the ship took us on a little drive through a residential are on a hilltop. It was very pretty and we (even our kids) enjoyed it. The people on St. Kitts were very nice and I think that we would someday go back there. Read Less

We rented a car and drove around the island. Alternatively, you could book excursions to take you to the sights, but expect to be crowded onto small vans. The rental car was expensive but for three persons, it came out to be the same price as booking one shore excursion while getting to see the entire island. We visited the botanical garden and the fortress which are must sees. We took the road all the way South to the Nevis ferry. You pass over a mountain for excellent views of most of the island.

In St. Kitts we did not have a tour planned. We got off the ship and walked around town for a little while. Then we went back to the port and made a deal with a taxi to take us around the island. The island is beautiful and our taxi driver was very knowledgeable of his home land. The water in St. Kitts is the prettiest we saw the whole cruise. After touring the island we went back to the port entrance and found an internet cafe that was only $2.00 for 20 minutes. So we bought 40 minutes and checked in at home. We did not make it up the mountain to the Brimstone fortress but will do that next time we are there. Read Less

Went with Rose & Jim's taxi to see St. Kitts. We had Rose a nice english lady who had married a local and lived on the island for 26+ years. Learned alot and have some great pictures especially from around the Batik factory. I enjoyed this tour but not quite as enjoyable (hard to follow Cosal I'm afraid) We did end with Cockleshell beach, crowded and not really my thing. Two couples and I asked to be taken back early to the ship and Rose was great in doing so and coming back for the 4 who had wanted to stay at the beach. Definitely would recomend Rose & Jim although I will pick another tour operator next time just for a different perspective on the island. Again drought here but still green and lovely. Great photo ops at Brimstone fortress/coastline and Batik factory grounds. Read Less

St Kitts has a nice shopping arcade as soon as you get off the ship. Natives are friendly. We took a taxi with friends to Cockleshell Beach on Southern End of island and cabbies were very friendly and gave us a lot of information about the island. Beach was beautiful with very clear water. The ride to the beach was an experience itself winding around mountains and cliffs with wild monkeys along the way. Read Less

Lovely island. The train ride is wonderful; I had taken it before and the train broke down so we didn't finish the last half of the ride. I got to see the second half this time. Many beautiful beaches you wouldn't see any other way most likely. Locals are wonderful people, a group came on the train and sang cool songs and the trip was narrated with facts and interesting things about the island. Alllll aboard!   Read Less

Did the ship excursion on the Caribbean Railway and Brimstone Hill. The railway was fun - open air train, great views. A running commentary of what you are seeing. Lots of poverty, waving kids. We saw a lot of animals including the wild monkeys. There are accapella singers and they serve you drinks and a sweet coconut cookie. It lasts about 2 1/2 hours. Suggest you use the restroom midway through the ride because the line toward the end of the ride is really long. Brimstone Hill is interesting especially if you pay for the $5 audio guide. They didn't really give us enough time there, though. Overall, it was a decent trip but it's very expensive. We spent about an hour in the port area drinking and shopping. Read Less

In St. Kitts, we took a horseback riding tour up into the rain forest and visited some abandoned sugar mills. The ride to the stable was short if a little bumpy (six adults in the back of a Toyota pick up truck) but the ride was very long--two and a half hours (we did a similar ride on Roatan a few years back, that had an hour ride to the stables, an hour on horseback, and an hour back). The horses seemed healthy, the tack was okay, and the guides were knowledgeable. The view was spectacular and we saw lots of interesting trees, monkeys, birds, etc. We arranged this tour independently of the ship using Shoretrips.com Upon our return we wandered the shop in the port area. Beware of the guys with the monkeys...they'll take a picture with your own camera of your with their monkeys and then try to charge you $20. We paid $5; but the pictures are great! The vendors in St. Kitts are really nice, not at all aggressive, but they'll still bargain to a slight degree. Read Less

We had a great tour, but it was hard to see so much trash and rusting machinery around some houses. The island is incredibly beautiful when you leave "civilization".
