Sugar & Spice – Saga Sapphire Cruise

I don’t want to go home. I like my cabin (Saga has the only personalized radio station on board a ship, which is an added bonus). I like the eucalyptus flannels that give us a wonderfully cooling welcome back on board. And I really like my last trip, on the retro St Kitts Scenic Railway.

St Kitts Scenic Railway

Built almost a century ago to deliver sugar cane from the fields to the sugar mill in the capital city of Basseterre, this narrow-gauge railroad now provides a fascinating way to see the island. The lower deck is air-conditioned with lovely rattan furniture, but everyone gravitates to the upper level with its spacious open-air observation deck.

The train rolls across tall steel bridges spanning deep canyons (known locally as ghuts) and I marvel at the rainforests housing mischievous monkeys and birds so bright they take your breath away.

For anyone over 50 wanting to experience a good number of Caribbean islands in a short space of time, this cruise is a must-do.
