Will be sailing on the Summit to St Lucia, St Kitts, Antigua and St Croix. We are thinking about taking the Train in St Kitts but have seen mixed reviews. Has anyone done this? What about hiting a private car for the day? Any other recommendations?

Hi vacationplanner and welcome to cruise-chat! We have taken the train ride twice and have loved it both times. When we were there in December, we had friends with us who had never been to St. Kitts. We recommended that the four of us do the train ride since we enjoyed it so much.

They were just as pleased with it as we were. The fun thing about the trip is that you don't just sit on the train and look out. They serve free rum punch, pina coladas, non-alcoholic drinks, and cookies. There are singers who come to each car and sing a few fun songs.

The narrative is easy to hear and understand. The cars are open on top, or you can go below to a nice sitting area that is air conditioned.

There are restrooms on each car.

I will try to place some pictures on this thread so that you can see the train. It is fun and well worth the money!

Here are a few pictures. One of the highlights of the tour is the children who come out to wave. I only sent a one, but there were many. Even the ones in a school yard stopped playing to wave at us!

I've been to St. Kitts twice but didn't do the rail. I've heard good reports, but if you get a bad weather day it supposedly ruins the ride. There really isn't much to do there - we kayacked the ocean from the side nearest Nevis which was fun, and also hiked the volcano which was tough going but spectacular. Also, the drivers on this island, residential and commercial, lead the world in nuts. I really feared for my life on the ride to and from the volcano.
