Day 10 Caribbean Vacation Xmas 2009

This morning at 8am, our cruise ship arrived in the port of Basseterre St Kitts. We don’t have any shore excursions planned for today, but we will go ashore and walk around and buy some souvenirs .

We went up to deck 11 forward to watch the ship sail into port and get tied up to the pier.

We enjoyed a late breakfast in the Palm Springs Cafe and then we walked along the pier into town. All the stores and shops are near the pier so it was easy to walk around and explore this town.

There is an interesting clock tower in the centre of town.
