Leeward is contracted with RCI and X when they are in port- we were on the Royal Princess on our last visit to St Kitts- we prefer a full day excursion and preferably on water. We had been to St Kitts a number of times on cruises and our last time able to get over to Nevis and do an island tour through Thenford ( don't think he offers it anymore)

I first reached out to BlueWater and they couldn't get us back in time for a full day- Then I contacted Leeward- Karen responded quickly and said that they were available that day but there was a 12 person minimum- I put it out there on our roll call-we finally got the minimum a few days before our cruise

The day of the excursion ( Sunday) there were swells and didn't look like we could land at Nevis for lunch- so LIC offered to refund anyone who wanted to cancel or give us a half day ( @ half rate ) for a 3 hr snorkel.

I noticed a few kids along with parents to the side- we were going one way or the other. Turned out the kids/ parents were employees or friends/spouses.

Our 3 hour snorkel turned into a 5.5 hr lunch on the cat with a snorkel stop at Majors Bay for half price- grassy bottom- conch, a ray or 2- but great for swimming

Bottom line- whether through the ship or independent- you can't go wrong
