What a great fort. You really get a sense of what it was like defending the gateway to the Caribbean islands. Lots of interesting exhibits in the rooms of the fort. The history is tumultuous and intriguing. We were surprised that we spent several hours...More

We had a rental car and did a tour of the island. We made a stop at Brimstone and it was totally worth. The views are spectacular! The kids had a great time exploring the different rooms and checking out the cannons. Worth a trip.

I would either take an excursion or get off the ship and at the end of the pier get a tour or taxi. The sit is far end of island and way up a hill, mountain, so give yourself enough time to get back to the ship. I would... More
