  1. We loved Pirate's Cove and snorkeling was available for an extra fee. It was a great day.
  2. Try not to stress about the weather. As we set sail on Sat Oct 6 the captain announced that they were predicting bad weather for the entire week and we had perfect weather. You can never tell in the Caribbean!!! Have a wonderful cruise. We loved all of those islands, in particular Barbados and Pirate's Cove.
  3. Try Bonita Tours. We used them earlier this month for transportation to and from Ffryes Beach. Not sure if they offer tours.
  4. Liz Pereira Tours - you can find her on Facebook. We've used her twice and have been very happy with her services.
  5. We enjoyed our day at Pirate's Cove a few weeks ago. Comfortable chairs, beautiful beach, great bar area with picnic tables and hammocks, live caribbean music playing softly in the background, Best rum punch of the week, delicious food. We wouldn't hesitate to go back again. We opted for just transportation, beach chair and umbrella rental thru Glory Tours but there was an option to add the snorkeling beforehand and at the beach once we got there. A few of our group went on the 9 AM tour and loved it. It lasted about 90 minutes to 2 hours. They spoke very highly of it. Interestingly, we walked to Boatyard to get a drink at their bar, however they would not serve us because we were not spending the day there. I thought that was kind of strange because they place was not crowded at all. It was early in the day. We wanted to check out their restaurant and thought we might even eat there but their loss. This is one of my most favorite beach spots.....Hope this helps....
  6. On our Freedom cruise the week of Oct 6 our waiter told us at least five times to be sure we rated both him and the food high marks. It was so annoying.
  7. Yes in one part but if you moved ten feet to the left or right you were ok. The water was beautiful.
  8. Try Reggae Beach Bar and Liz Pereira Tours. She is awesome to work with and her specialty is groups. We've used her twice.
  9. We met a couple on our cruise last week that had done Carambola and did not have very good things to say about it. They said it was way too crowded. We went to Reggae Beach Bar and thoroughly enjoyed our day. However, the water sports company needs to update their floats and I have been told that they are in the process of doing so. The Coconut Shrimp and Fresh Fish Sandwiches were delicious at Reggae and their Pina Colada's are awesome. Enjoy your day in St Kitts
  10. you have to pay $1 every time you use the bathroom. It's worth it because they are very clean and well kept. We were there last week and although it is a small beach close to the airport the scenery was beautiful and we enjoyed a great lunch from one of the boardwalk restaurants. Ask for Sean or Jack. They were very helpful in getting us our chairs and umbrellas and arranging our authentic St. Lucian lunch which was delicious. $25 for a large plate enough to share.
  11. Back from Ffryes Beach. It is such a beautiful beach. We had arranged group transportation (for 12) thru Bonita Tours in advance. There was a bit of an issue with our return (driver double booked) but it all worked out. We were there early and got prime real estate as far as the beach chair location. The woman "renting" the chairs was a bit iffy on her pricing, changing it from $15 to $20 within minutes. There are alot of vendors that visit the beach and massages were offered for $1 a minute. Dennis restaurant did not disappoint with a very delicious burger and fries. Royal Caribbean had an excursion come to the beach and they took up the chairs closest to the resteraunt and they were very close together. We were very comfortably spaced a few yards away from them. The water was beautiful. The restrooms were clean and located behind the restaurant. It was a very pleasant day.
  12. We boarded at 11 and rooms were available at 1:30. We got lunch and toured the ship. It is our feeling you've paid for the day why not enjoy it on board. We wore our suits or carried them on in our carry on and got changed as soon as our rooms were ready to enjoy the pool.
  13. They also offered a swimming with turtles and shipwreck snorkeling tour a few times during the day. It was our favorite day of our 7 day 5 port cruise.
  14. OHHHH I am very interested in reading this. We are avid RC fans and just got off Freedom. Planning a Bermuda cruise next and thinking of trying NCL so I can't wait to hear your thoughts. Thanks for sharing.
