Excursion vs Resort Day Pass in St. Kitts

My family & I are going to be in St. Kitt's during one of our stops on our Dec cruise & we decided this would be the port we would do an excursion. We are trying to decide between doing the St. Kitt's Highlights/Brimstone Hill Fortress Tour or a day pass to Marriott Resort. Our other 3 ports will have lots of beach/swimming time & this would give us the opportunity to do something else besides different. I've heard great stuff about the Brimstone Fortress & from the research I've done, the view from there is amazing. Our kids are 8 & 14, they do enjoy seeing things like that & I think would like it alot. On the other hand, the resort is half the cost, has 3 pools & beach access too.

Has anyone done either of these things that could offer some suggestions?

We've not done either, but I'll be interested in the answers and your opinion when you return as we'll be going ti St. Kitts in January.

I love St Kitts....beautiful lush island...we rented a car and went everywhere...so much to see and one place is more beautiful than the next

Only you know what your children and you would enjoy more. We wouldpick more beach and swimming time especially in December when there's a lot of snow at home.

It is really up to you and your family but the Fortress tour sounds good for families. You all my be sunburned by then anyway.

Curious what people say to this...and what you decide. I am thinking about the some things! or a resort for the day in St Lucia and fortress or volcano in St Kitts.

The only thing I’ll add, is if you want to bring home a great rum, for very little $$, grab a bottle of Cavalier. It’s made in Antigua, but can be bought in St. Kitts. Get the dark, not the light. Depending on your travel home, buy a couple of bottles.
