Did Scenic Railway and Catamaran Trip back.
Did Scenic Railway and Catamaran Trip back. Boat well worth the extra £20 or so. Railway not as scenic as I expected and a bit rattly and wobbly (yes we know it's old). Boat trip back fantastic. Love the catamaran trips.

Crown Princess combined tour. Scenic train and catamaran coast cruise. Thoroughly enjoyed the cane train trip. Drinks supplied by hostesses and a commentary given. We sat upstairs in first carriage. Tour not as advertised in excursion guide. Unfortunately we did the catamaran coast cruise first. Not enough shade so ended up extremely dehydrated even though drinks (soft and alcoholic) were supplied. Read Less

The train takes you around the island through abandoned sugar cane plantations. You get a variety of views of the mountain in the center of the island and some nice views near the coasts. You will also go by dilapidated houses, junk yards and a quarry. While the tour guides are excited about the train bridges, they are of no real architectural beauty or consequence. Read Less
