Ship tip

Be patient when getting off the ship. It is a slow, busy process. Also, be early for shows you really want to see. Seats fill up fast for the better shows.

liked this port a lot. Caught a water taxi and went to a beach that was a 10 minute ride from the port. Two chairs and umbrella was $20. Water taxi was $7 pp.

Did our own excursion in St Johns. Visited a beach for a few hours. It was clean, prices were ok.

Castries, St. Lucia

3 out of 5
St Lucia was ok. Also did our own excursion here. Cab driver tried to charge us more that we were originally told. Drink prices at the beach were high compared to other port stops.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

5 out of 5
Liked St Kitts a lot. No excursion. Decided to just walk around and enjoy the day. Very clean. Shop prices very fair. Locals very nice and helpful. Spent most of our money here shopping.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
A little chaotic due to the coronavirus issue. If it was not for that issue, it was a typical disembarkation process. You learn to be patient.
