Default SHORE EXCURSION ADVISE NEEDED FOR 10/22 CARNIVAL CRUISE!!

I need some advise on Shore Excursions for St. Maarten, St. Lucia, and St. Kitts. We are leaving next Monday, 10/22. Any suggestions?? We are thinking about some type of party boat excursion if anyone knows of any. There is also the St. Maarten Party Bus called the Marcarena Choo Choo thru Carnival that we are thinking about. Also, how difficult are the biking adventures and horseback riding adventures...are they worth it? There is a train ride on St. Kitts we are thinking about too. Is it worth it to skip excursions and just walk around and enjoy the scenery? PLEASE HELP MAKE THIS TRIP AWESOME! 8)

The mountain train ride in St. Kitts is pretty good-it is unique in the Caribbean. In St. Martin try to visit both sides of the island especially the French side. As for St. Lucia it is a scenic island-I would try an island wide excursion to see as much as possible.

I just saw St.Lucia for the first time and is was soooo beautiful. We found another couple that wanted to tour the island. We walked past all the taxi's hawking right outside the cruise ship dock. Once you get past that- outside we found a taxi with a van that took us sightseeing the entire day for only $75.00 for ALL of us! That's less than $20.00 pp so you'll have plenty $$$'s for buying souvenirs and tips. Make sure you check out the steaming volcanos too. There's also a nice botannical garden. Have fun.

The best excursion we have ever done at St Martin has to be the "Rhino Rider" boats. You have your own two person power boat and go with a guide. He gives you a great tour of the French and the Dutch side of the island. We snorkled and stopped at a beach for a bit. Capt Tom was our guide- hands down the best excursion we've been on ever!!

We took our honeymoon in St Lucia. We hiked through a rainforest. It was just 2 couples and a guide. We swam in a waterfall after the hike. We had an amazing time!
