prior to going to st Kitts, I thought I wouldn't like it. there wasn't much that appealed to me in terms of tours. we decided to take a taxi to the beach and hope for the best, worst case scenario go back to the ship early. boy was I wrong! !! took a taxi to south friars beach, I believe we paid $8/pp. our driver stopped along the way for us to take pictures and explained about the island. rented 2 chairs and umbrella at Carambola for $22. it was gorgeous! nice beach and beautiful scenery. some limited snorkeling right off the beach near the pier as well. the bar in the resort was a bit slow as it got busier toward lunch, but that's a minor issue. so glad i was wrong about st. kitts, and I can't wait to go back!!

We took a water taxi to Frugate Beach for the day. It was a nice, peaceful, relaxing day. Not much traffic on this beautiful beach. The food at the beach bar was very good.

This would be a green happy face if not for one thing. Although in general the people were beautiful and the place was gorgeous, be warned-you will see monkeys that are trained to take pictures with people and for the most part they are very well taken care of, but I did see one handler that was mentally unstable and he was physically abusing the poor little baby monkey he kept tied up, making her scream and try helplessly to get away from him, which utterly broke my heart. If you see him, DO NOT pay him!! He is known by the locals as "Chazzy," a large, heavy set black man who steals tips left on tables by using the monkey and also tries to con tourists by taking pictures before he tells them the price-and he charges double what everyone else does. The other monkey handlers were super cool and very kind to their monkeys, I just had to make this review in hopes that it might possibly help prevent more monkeys from being abused. Thank you for your attention.

Shipwreck Bar & Grill - a must. Beautiful view, free chairs, yummy food & drinks (reasonably priced) ... and MONKEYS!!! Be sure to have your taxi stop at the top of the hill to capture the most breathtaking photo of the Atlantic Ocean meeting the Caribbean.

Do the catamaran excursion! Everything about this is amazing from the boat, the staff, the lunch at the beach, the beach! It was by far our best experience of the cruise.

Beware of the crazy monkey people. We got ripped off. Charged us $20 bucks, didn't even ask if we wanted to hold the monkey, just shoved it in our face and then used our camera to take the picture and charged us.
