    St Kitts

    January 15, 2019 in Saint Kitts and Nevis ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Port town is Basseterre which is the capital. Nothing planned today so I will check out whats available from private operators.

    Lively port entrance with lots of air conditioned shops and an ok town based on carribean standards. Picked up a 2 1/2 hour island tour for $25US as opposed to $60 charged by the ship.

    We passed the park where slaves were sold to plantation owners and the saw the building where they were held. The park is now called independence park.

    Land once used for sugar cane is now being developed for houses, resorts and businesses.

    The island has a few universities for foreign students, a brewery and a soft drink factory.

    Re housing the government leases it to citizens and provided you make your payments in 30 years you will owe the land and house.

    Good tour, not alot of sandy beaches and the Atlantic side is pretty much all rock. The highlight was a 400 year old tree and the view towards the island of Nevis.

    Once back had a look at the shops but they all have the same crap from China and India and its all tacky/ugly. Keen to get back on the ship since I discovered they have better desserts for afternoon tea!

    St Kitts

    October 31, 2017 in Saint Kitts and Nevis ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Happy Halloween!!!

    Tonight will be a very busy night with all the Halloween shoots but for now I am relaxing out in port. Most of the team went to the beach but after being stuck on the ship for so long I didn’t want to just sit on the beach all day. I also didn’t want to pay for the taxi. So I met up with my friend Ashton (bar steward) and we did some exploring. Now we are relaxing in an Indian restaurant for a snack and some wifi.

    The Caribbean is definitely as hot as I remember and you would never know there was a hurricane based on this island. I’m sure we will see the affects soon enough though.

    Romney manor

    February 27, 2019 in Saint Kitts and Nevis ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Set in approximately 8 acres, these grounds have considerable history dating back to the 1600s. Romney Manor & Wingfield Estate have had only 5 family owners to-date. The first, Sam Jeffreson II, the great, great, great grandfather of Thomas Jefferson (3rd president of the U.S.A), who purchased the property in 1625.

    The modest house, once named the "red house" to reflect Jeffreson's Quaker roots, was renamed Romney Manor upon its mid 17th-century acquisition by the Earl of Romney. In 1834, contrary to the instruction of the British Parliament, Lord Romney declared his enslaved Africans free men, becoming the first estate in St. Kitts to do so.

    Most of the activity on the property, has been growing & distilling sugar cane. Over the years, its owners have witnessed the crushing of cane by animal, water, and steam power. This all changed in the 1920s as the cane processing became centralized in the nation's capital, Basseterre. The Wingfield Estate grew, harvested, and loaded sugar cane until the mid-2000s, that's 350 years!

    Romney Manor became a batik enterprise in the 1970s under the tutelage of its current owner. Wingfield Estate began its transition to the beautiful gardens and active archaeological site it is today in the 2000s, when the St. Kitts government discontinued all sugar cane operations on the island.

    Brimstone Hill Fortress NP

    February 27, 2019 in Saint Kitts and Nevis ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park is an outstanding, well-preserved example of 17th- and 18th-century military architecture in a Caribbean context. Designed by the British and built by African slave labour, the fortress is testimony to European colonial expansion, the African slave trade and the emergence of new societies in the Caribbean.Read more

    St. Kitts {Basseterre}

    December 15, 2018 in Saint Kitts and Nevis ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Bei strahlendem Sonnenschein und 28° angelegt. Wir haben heute morgen noch über das Shore Excursion Team die Rundfahrt mit der Zuckerrohrbahn gebucht. Mal schauen wie das wird.
    Eine gute Entscheidung wie sich heraus gestellt hat. Wenn nämlich ein Kreuzfahrtschiff im Hafen liegt verkauft die Eisenbahngesellschaft keine Tickets an Einzelreisende...
    Die Bahn wird auf Hin- und Rückfahrt von 2 verschiedenen Gruppen benutzt. Wir haben zuerst mit dem Bus die erste Hälfte der Insel erkundet, sind dann in den Zug gestiegen um die andere Seite der Insel anzuschauen. Seit vielen Jahren wird die Bahn nur noch touristisch genutzt und nicht mehr für den Zuckerrohrtransport.
    An Bord wurden Cocktails kostenlos verteilt, christliche Lieder gesungen und viele Informationen weiter gegeben.
    In jedem Fall ein sinnvolles Event.
    Nach einem kurzen Rundgang durch die Stadt wurde Assi die Armut und die Fremdartigkeit der Menschen zuviel und wir sind zurück an Bord.
