We got what we wanted! by lmccorn18

Perfect weather never hurts! The My Time Dining was a little confusing - we were told different things on different nights - like what time our reservation was, what table we had. But it all worked out. Though we had no kids with us, the kids water park is great for them and the Flow Ryder and adult water slide is impressive. Also fun was the men's Belly Flop contest, lol!

$6 blackjack on the afternoon in you are in Labadee. Tables open at 3pm. The casino was dead. At Labadee lunch is from 11:30am to 1:30pm, go early. Food runs out, fellow passengers get a little irritated, and the workers deal with this everyday, so they are indifferent

Don't need to book a tour in San Juan just go to the "White" tram/trolley stop outside the pier for a free ride to Old San Juan and tour the forts, that will take all day, they are massive and for 5 bucks well worth it. US cell phone work and it's usually included in you plan.

Book a day at Palm Court Plantation & restaurant for $11 and swim there all day. There is a nice restaurant & it overlooks the water (you can see the cruise ship from there). I would definitely hang out there on my next visit to St. Kitts. Another cruiser said food was good. A paradise to relax.
