Kingstown cruises

Capital of the Grenadines, St Vincent is the ultimate Caribbean cruise location. Set in the centre of a triangle formed by the world famous islands of St Lucia, Grenada and Barbados, St Vincent has been influenced by these and other celebrated tiny gems like Bequia and Mustique for many years. Today, this island has it all. From beaches and bays untouched by tourism to the latest and most luxurious resorts, St Vincent embodies every travel brochure cliché: but you’ll see for yourself that it is truly breathtaking, idyllic, perfect and pristine. Around a quarter of the island’s 110,000 population live in Kingstown, the capital, on the south side.

Kingstown’s Cultural Heritage

Kingstown is a lively, mini metropolis and cultural melting pot of people, music, art and flavours. You’ll see why it is known as the City of Arches as soon as you arrive and begin to admire the well preserved 19th century architecture, including St Mary’s Cathedral of the Assumption. From the tip of the 4,000 feet high volcano, La Soufrière, right down to the gold, black and white sand shores, St Vincent is an exciting island of many faces. Get a sense of its swash-buckling past at Kingstown by visiting Fort Charlotte and other battlements used in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

Combining the true taste of St Vincent’s past and present, Kingston is just the place to learn how to mingle with the locals who call themselves Vincies. Spend even half a day here, and you’ll soon fall into the laid-back pace. Food is where imagination meets taste to awaken the senses. From fresh lobster and queen conch lambi to the more unusual local breadfruit delicacies, you can be sure you’ll be treated to some home-grown ingredients and the sweetest, tastiest spices.

Discover Kingstown

Creative cruise guests adore absorbing the sights and sounds of the market stalls between Upper and Lower Long Lane in Kingstown. The delicious smell of the street food makes you crave that taste of the Caribbean here in the heart of the Grenadines. Crowds of locals and explorers alike flow through the cobblestone alleys, narrow walkways and arches surrounded by steep hills. Fishmongers wheel their catch from the Bay Street wharf and friendly vendors invite you in to their boutiques to buy local and designer label items. Away from it all, take it easy St Vincent style in a hammock on your sandy beach of choice, sipping a rum cocktail or two.

Excursions

Please note: The shore excursions listed are typical for this port. The full programme of shore excursions available for your cruise will be displayed on Cruise Personaliser at least 12 weeks prior to departure.

  • Waterfall and Coast

    Capture the very best of St Vincent by both land and sea.

    Waterfall and Coast

    Whether you commence by bus or boat, you’ll enjoy a delightful 1½ hour journey to the leeward side of the island. The village of Wallilabou, will be a familiar site, as this was the setting for the film ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’.

    Dark View is home to an enchanting 75-foot-high waterfall. The Dark View Falls are a sight to behold as they cascade down a sheer rock face into a small pool. Take a quick dip in the rock pool and enjoy a natural massage from the waterfall.

    No tour of St Vincent would be complete without viewing the exit of the Bat Cave and looking out for its furry, winged inhabitants.

    Whilst enjoying the coastal cruise element of your tour, you’ll have the opportunity to relax in the sun or cool off with a swim or snorkel.

    During your tour a light buffet lunch will be served at either a beachfront restaurant or eco-lodge.
