  1. This is a website I found for Royston, I hope that it works! http://www.roystontoursstkitts.com/
  2. Here is a contact information for the train: http://www.stkittsscenicrailway.com/contact-us.html The home page for the train lists the cruise lines that they deal with. www.stkittsscenicrailway.com
  3. Very good information Terry!
  4. There are many tour operators at the port offering their tours. Almost all offer tours to most of the places you have listed. Most will end at either the port or one of the beaches. I would guess that most cruisers will make their tour arrangements after they arrive because most of the operators are small operations and many do not have a social media or online presence. Find an operator that offers a tour that you are interested in, agree on a price & payment arrangement. The fort has a $10 entrance fee, some will include this and many do not. If they take you to one of the beaches arrange with your tour operator to pick you up for the return to the port area. NONE of the beaches are close enough to walk to.
  5. With the completion of the 2nd pier this fall, they will be able to accommodate two more very large ships. There are times when additional smaller ships are anchored offshore and the passengers are tendered in. The deep water harbor(commercial ships) will have a cruise ship once in awhile also.
  6. Palm Court is really not an inn but is a great place to unwind that is within walking distance from the pier. They do have a small cottage that they have available. It is listed on VRBO. There is not much for children to do there.
  7. You can walk from the cruise ship pier area to the ferry terminal in St Kitts, ferry cost is approx $11 US p/p each way, 45 min trip each way. Remember to pay the port security fee. Taxi from ferry dock in Nevis to Sunshine's about $8 p/p each way. Depending on when your ships docks will determine which ferry to take, probably 9:30 AM to Nevis and the 1 PM ferry back. Buy a 1 way ticket because the return maybe on a different ferry. They are independently operated.
  8. Passenger ferry from Basseterre, St Kitts to Charlestown, Nevis, then taxi to Sunshines -least cost Taxi to Cockelshell then water taxi from there to Oualie Beach on Nevis, taxi to Sunshines- most expensive
  9. It is nice to have the freedom to explore on your own. Here is a link to a map of St Kitts/Nevis: http://www.skyviews.com/st-kitts-and-nevis-map/, it has some ads but it is pretty decent. The rental agencies give you a map also.
  10. The car rental agencies handle the temp licenses so it is not a hassle to get one. Show them your current license from home and you are good to go. A taxi is going to be about $40/hr.or so. St Kitts is relatively small so expect about 3-4 hrs to do a full island tour. They do charge a $10 entrance fee for Brimstone Hill Fortress.
  11. temp license fee is $62.50 EC or about $24 US, for a one day visit I would as Terry suggests get a taxi for your visit. Let them do the driving
  12. The "water taxis" leave St Kitts from Cockleshell Beach near Reggae Beach Bar and arrive in Nevis at the new pier near Oualie Beach.It is about a 8-10 min ride. The regular ferries depart from Basseterre, St Kitts and arrive in Charlestown, Nevis. The water taxis have a bit rougher ride.
  13. You can always find a taxi at the taxi stand in the Circus in town if there are few at the port area.
  14. There should be time to see some more of the island. Timothy Hill is only about 15 min or less from the port area.
  15. The Symphony of the Seas is the only ship scheduled to be in St Kitts on your date.
