A true tropical paradise - lush, luxuriant and beautiful
When cruising with MSC Cruises aboard one of our beautiful ships to the Caribbean, your ship will probably stop off at the paradise island of Saint Kitt, also known as Saint Christopher Island, along the way.
Located in the Caribbean, St Kitts, together with the island of Nevis, constitute the nation of ‘Saint Kitts and Nevis’. The capital of the two-island nation, and also its largest port, is the city of Basseterre.
An ideal vacation destination that is both relaxing and stimulating, excursion packages with MSC Cruises include some of the best deals around.
St Kitts is a true tropical paradise - lush, luxuriant and beautiful. Although a well-known and popular holiday destination, islanders are keen to preserve the precious ecosystems of this little corner of paradise. So, although the island has been developed to the highest quality, it remains uncrowded and unspoiled.
The main port, Basseterre is modern and able to welcome large cruise ships. A ring road traverses the perimeter of the island; the interior of the island is too steep for inhabitation.
With beautiful unspoilt beaches, you can choose from a relaxing beach excursion and a dip in the warm seas, a panoramic diving tour or snorkelling for those looking for memorable maritime activity. Nature lovers will be enthralled with the wonderful rainforest walk, whilst the more adventurous can try a ‘sky safari’ zip line journey.
