"On St. Kitts took the railroad tour. Save your money. You get a tour of slums and then go on a train that goes 5 mph. You get to see miles of sugarcane and trash. Major rip off. Fell asleep. No one on the train liked it. I am going to ask Princess to send me my money back (I'm sure they won't)."

See Frank's review below Golden 7/4 for the complete story.

I knew people who took this tour and loved it. So, I guess it really matters about your preferences.

We talked to some people in March, and they did not care for the train either. BUT.......
Instead we call or e-mail either Randy or Tinney, taxi drivers, to pick us up at the pier and sight see the island. As long or as short as you want.
Tinney charged us $80-$100 for 4 hours and he took us where we wanted to go. From one end to the other. Lots of places that aren't on the regular tours. We passed on the fort the last time also. You have to see the new Marriot Resort on the south end too.
If you need e-mail address, e-mail me direct.

rjsmom, I'm not sure what else the board can do for you.

Several people have posted positive reviews, some no-so-positive.
I'd hate to think you may decide to do this excursion, and end up being disappointed, then 'blaming' the advice you got here.

My suggestion would be talk to the people cruising with you and see what they want to do as a group. St. Kitts offers some wonderful scenery and Princess offers a variety of excursions from which to choose, as well as private tours you could consider. Some quite active, others more relaxed in pace.

Last time I was there, we picked up a cab at the pier, had a private tour of the island for about an hour, then hit the beach. Our cabbie picked us up at the agreed upon time, and we were back in plenty of time to meet the ship. A brilliant day.

Have a look at the mobility of your group, you haven't mentioned if anyone is mobility challenged, and the excursions offered, then make a decision as a group - I think it will be the best for all concerned.
Remember, you can always cancel a pre-reserved excursion up to 24 hours before without penalty.

Good luck, enjoy the trip!

I know it's too late for your question, but we took this tour off of the Maasdam last month and it was fantastic. Yes, the train goes slow, but I wouldn't call the towns it passes "slums." You get to glimpse beautiful scenery, learn a lot of history of St. Kitts. I would opt to take this tour!!
