  1. about 12-15 dollars each way total for up to 4 passengers and there is a taxi stand near by so it is not a problem to return to the port area
  2. Enjoy your visit. Have you rented your vehicle yet? The Thrifty outlet is very close to the pier.
  3. It is almost impossible to do on your own if the cruise line that you may be on has an agreement with the zip line operator.
  4. I have not done the St Maarten cat but the St Kitts-Nevis catamaran many times during my visits to St Kitts/Nevis as a non-cruiser.
  5. St Kitts has a zipline that usually can't be booked unless you book the excursion through the ship. St Kitts also has a catamaran excursion to Nevis with adult beverages included..a
  6. Take a taxi to the Marriott from the port and go to the desk and tell them you want a day pass. Cheaper than from the "Resort for the Day" online option.
  7. Most of the tour/taxis operators have large vans that can carry about 12 passengers comfortably. Taxi fares are regulated but tours are negotiable. A taxi fare that would be regulated is a taxi taking you from one point to another point with no stops in between, an example from the port to the fort with a return to the port. A tour would be from the port to the fort with a stop at Caribelle Batik, a short tour of Basseterre and stopping at one of the beaches.
  8. I have visited St Kitts often but it has been as a stay over visitor not as a cruiser. The train started about 10 plus years ago after the sugar industry closed down. All of the rolling stock (engines & passenger coaches where built new for this excursion). As a stay over guest it can be hard to do some of the excursions as they are booked up by the cruise lines. The train, zip line and the catamaran trips are sold out quite often.
  9. You may want to contact the operator of the train about securing a reservation. The train has agreements with most cruise lines and if there are many of those cruise ships in port the same day as you are in port it may be booked up. try this to contact them: http://www.stkittsscenicrailway.com/contact-us.html, when are you scheduled to be in Basseterre?
  10. St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The Federation’s Second Cruise Pier is on track to be completed by next week, the minister responsible for Ports, Ian Liburd has confirmed to WINN FM. However he has indicated that a formal opening ceremony is likely to come later in either October or November. The minister spoke to WINN FM about the status of the new pier on Wednesday (September 18). The new pier was expected to cost 48 million US dollars. However cost overruns of US$7 million dollars are likely to see that figure rise further. That matter is currently the subject of arbitration.
  11. If you are on the Koningsdam and arriving in St Kitts on November 20th, there is only one other ship in port. The port load is only 5284 passengers that day. I would not be concerned about tendering to pier.
  12. The pier in St Kitts at Port Zante, will take two large cruise ships and the new additional pier, if completed, will also take two large ships and the deep water harbor( the commercial harbor) will take 1 ship if available.
  13. There are 3 reputable dive shops in St Kitts. Pro Divers at the marina at Port Zante Dive St Kitts at Bird Rock Hotel Kenneth's Dive Center on the Bay Road
