Turkey Week Cruise.... HELP!

Recommended Posts

HI all... looking for recommendations and how to do's please 🙂 We are traveling with 4 adults and 3 teenage kids! 

We are on the Magic the week of Thanksgiving and we will visit San Juan (Thanksgiving day), St Marteen, St Kitts and Grand Turks.

 

Heres what we would like to do: possible zip lining, eating at local spots, sight seeing, snorkeling and beach time, catamaran WITH liquor lol

 

San Juan &- 2:30pm Thinking  zip lining here, since its Thanksgiving most things will be closed. Should we rent a car? or take a taxi/ tour? stop at food places and drink the adult capri suns! lol (Sangria)

 

St Marteen  9-5:30 we would like to visit Maho beach for the airport... THEN ??

 

St Kitts???? 

 

Grand Turk 7-5:30 ... Thinking down time and just hand around the port area.

 

 

WE are open to all and any suggestions! Give me what ya got!!

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

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.

Would you suggest St Kitts cat over one in St Maarten?

No, St Maarten Cat not St. Kitts unless you plan on going over to Nevis.

St. Maarten Cat to Maho is awesome.

You get to go to the airport and get blown off the beach by a 747 jumbo jet on take off. Our CC roll call we all did it in 2012 we had a blast(literally).

You also get to wave at passengers and the pilots for that matter, on jet's coming in for a landing as they fly right over top of you, it's a really cool day.  Have fun Todd

Brimstone Hill fort is pretty cool if you like history and it has spectacular views of several other islands.  We got a taxi in town and took us up and back with some sightseeing along the way for $50.00.

Mary, you posted the same queries on other threads.  Might be good to tell people you’ve asked the same questions elsewhere.

St. Kitts--van tour with Royston. It's kind of a crazy ride, but unforgettable. Check out other reviews/descriptions of his tour here on the St. Kitts board. If he's available, you would be the only ones, since his van can do 6 to 9 people, so I would discuss what you'd like to see or how much time you'd like to spend where. He is great and enthusiastic, but will spend a lot of time driving around to show you things if you're not clear about what you want to do/see. In any event, definitely hit the highlights like Brimstone fortress and the rain forest area.
