  1. Plastic straws use in industrialized nations such as the US or UK are not, I repeat NOT, a problem. Just another green scam for the gullible to rally around. Plastic straws are a convenience, while paper straws are all but useless. If you don't want to use plastic straws then don't, but do not try and dictate to responsible adults how to live their lives. Plastic straws are a feel good non-issue for the crowd which believes the world will end in 12 years due to global warming (already discredited and changed to "climate change". The actual truth is that 95% of the plastic in the oceans are the result of 10 rivers located in Asia and Africa. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4970214/95-plastic-oceans-comes-just-TEN-rivers.html
  2. Thanks for the info. I've already booked with Vaughn Francis of Tropical Adventures, who has a "Grenada in a Nutmeg Shell Tour" that hits all the spots I'm interested in. Vaugh has great reviews on Trip Adviser, but I was only able to book him on his website: www.tagrenada.com or tadventure@hotmail.com
  3. It's entertaining to see some americans terrified of crime in the Caribbean. I grew up on the outskirts of Detroit, and now live in a northern michigan tourist town where there is some crime on a regular basis. The gullible and unawares can be victimized regardless of where they go. Basically people need to be cautious wherever they go, and one is far, far more likely to suffer a accident (physical) as opposed to violent crime. By the way, having worked for the state of michigan in a maximum security prison and as a children & adult protective services investigator I know crime...its everywhere.
  4. My wife and I are interested in seeing The River Antoine Rum Distillery, Grand Etang Lake, the Gouyave Nutmeg station and Diamond Chocolate Factory. It seems the tours we've researched to go there do not run on weekends. We will be in Grenada on a saturday in January 2020. Will the businesses be open if we hired a taxi to take us there?
  5. I understand the 75% alcohol rum available in Grenada isn't allowed in luggage on flights. Can it somehow be shipped back to the US? Thanks in advance for any info.
  6. My wife and I are looking at booking a guaranteed balcony for a January 2020 southern caribbean cruise out of San Juan Puerto Rico (Norwegian Epic). We have never booked a guaranteed balcony before, and it says it may be partially or fully obstructed. How often do people actually receive a fully or partially obstructed balcony.? Is it a large percentage of the time, or more rare? Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
