Took a private tour with Mandoo. Theme was "spices", saw an operating spice processing plant as well as a general tour around the Island. Excellent and informative.

Would probably get a 5 if the weather had been good. In fact, it was rotten-so much so that it was close to being a day at sea! Ship tendered and transferred us ashore by lifeboat. Due to delay in getting ashore, was glad I hadn't pre-booked anything. Grabbed a local taxi for island tour--was great, very informative, drove towards Grand Etang, nice scenic drive and showed us all the natural produce that grows here while giving us a talk of history of island.Went to Annadale Falls. Stopped at rum bar, showed us how nutmeg is produced etc etc. and had a look at herb and spice garden. Went to Grand Anse bay -beautiful beach but weather still poor. Not much time for a quick look around St. George's which was a shame. But seems to have the spices, rainforest, a more-populated capital, and great beaches so well worth a visit. Wouldhave be great if the sun shone. Read Less

My friend went scuba diving here, arranged independently with a dive shop located at the Flamboyant Hotel. They invited both of us to use the hotel's facilities for the day, which we did. Very comfortable facility and lovely beach at the southern end of Grand Anse Bay; also a good lunch in their outdoor cafe. Read Less

Lovely island with a nice ambiance. took the water taxi from the port over to Grand Anse Beach and the Spice Market...spice market on the beach is a disappointment but the beach was divine....lovely water and beach. Took a taxi tour and had a nice time...the town is loaded with history..neat tunnel through the middle of town...lots of spices to be had in the port area, but back home, I found the cinnamon to be "old" or less flavorful than what we buy in the store.

We did the Spice and Waterfall excursion. Very Boring!!! When we got back to the port we ran into two ladies from our dinning room table and stopped to talk to them. Then some port security officer came over to us and was VERY rude and told us to keep moving. I asked him if there was a problem with us standing there talking? He just looked irritated and told us to get moving. I then walked up to him and asked if I should go get the Ship Security officer, he just said "sorry, sorry" and walked away. Read Less

We found the vendors to be quite aggressive here and it is quite a poor country. Nice scenic harbour though, and good viewpoints at Fort George & Fort Frederick.

Sorry - Grenada out of order - went there after Barbados. Very pretty island - nice people. Went diving/snorkeling with Scubatech - healthy reefs, good variety of fish. Our only gripe with Grenada was a silly security procedure going back to the cruise ship - a long line for security screening. Seemed like a make work government project with no real point. Passengers get screened getting back on the ship - why did we have to do this twice? Guess it was to attract people away from the line and into the stores in the terminal. Still, it mostly irritated people. Read Less

Grenada was our favorite among all of the ports. We met a friend who is in Medical School there and she introduced us to the Aquarium Restaruant -- about 20 minutes from the port area via taxi. We had a deicious freshly grilled seafood lunch at a waterside table with a spectacular view. We also enjoyed the taxi ride from the port, with a licensed and very well versed driver who educated us on the island and its development and the obstacles that they have overcome with invasions, hurricanes and vast unemployment. Grenadaians had a pride that we did not find in the other islands. Read Less

We left the ship and walked right out of the duty free shopping area into the town. We walked around on our own, to the market, the carenage (harbor area), up and down streets, for a couple of hours. I highly recommend going to the spice market-the vendors were friendly and the spices are excellent and an authentic purchase. The harbor area is very pretty, and it feels perferctly safe to walk around on your own. We took a water taxi to Grand Anse beach $8 for a return trip, and there are always boats to take you back. The sand is white and soft, the water is warm and still. The beach is crowded with umbrellas and beach chairs-not a quiet secluded beach but great for swimming, and easy access. It also has the Grand Anse Spice Market right on the beach- it was quiet and not as much atmosphere as the market in town, but same basic products. We loved our few hours in Grenada. Read Less

Chose to do Grenada on my own since every other port had an excursion planned. I chose to use a water taxi (cheaper than regular taxi) to go to Grand Anse Beach. The water taxis are a set price but in hindsight I would have rather paid more for a regular taxi and got to and returned from my destination on my own schedule. Their system is bizarre and frustrating. On the way back from Grand Anse there were two empty boats at the dock. About 12 of us got onto one boat and waited nearly 30 minutes, being told that our taxi needed to be full being sailing. In the meantime, as people walked down the dock, the attendants were sending them to the second empty boat instead of filling ours. As their boat filled to capacity, some of our passengers begged to get their tickets back and boarded the second boat instead, which worked. The second boat then sailed before ours. What???? I'm easy-going, but the attendants were very rude to anyone who asked about their "system" or asked when we would be leaving. So I missed seeing the fort even though I had left the beach with plenty of time to spare. Grand Anse Beach is a very nice beach, with bar service and chair attendants everywhere. The chairs are $15 to rent, with an extra $2 for a padded cushion. You can also just plop yourself down on the beach. Shaded areas are also available, as are restrooms, a restaurant, and bar. The water was great. Some vendors do wander up and down the beach, offering hair braiding, etc. I was disappointed in this port overall, but mostly for the way it ended on the water taxi. I chose a nice beach however. Read Less

We did not book a trip with the cruise ship and decided to do our own thing. On entering the "terminal" we were approached by one of the various taxi drivers and was offer a tour for US$20 each but would need to have a party of 8 to do this. The taxi driver found the remaining people very quickly and we soon set off with "Cutty" on a tour of Grenada. We saw the general sights and Cutty was very knowledgeable on plant life and would frequently stop to pick us some fruit or leaves and explain what they were used for. The trip took around 5 hours and we were back on ship for 2pm although we could have stayed in the port town if we had wished. The island was particularly crowded as there were 4 large cruise ships in port on the same day. Read Less

I think the name of the beach was CockleShell, The beach itself was dirty. Next to the swimming area was a surfing section, so there were a lot of guys hanging around. The snorkeling was superb right off the beach. The water got a little choppy and visibility went down, but we still thought it was well worth our time. Other than that, we saw little of the island Read Less

Our first time here, and really not anything much different than other ports, just souvenir shops and the inevitable Diamonds International stores that the ships push at every port.

We took a water taxi to Grand Anse Beach. First, we walked to the local pharmacy to pick up some additional sunscreen and aloe. Then we walked back to the beach. There were many venders on the beach and they were all very aggresive. The beach itself was just ok. We rented two chairs and umbrella for $15. Altough, it was disheartening to see local dogs walking around the beach, clearly not being taken care. Many dogs, all skin and bones. Overall, the locals were not very friendly. Read Less

i'm actually going to give this island better than the usual zero rating this time because we went to an all inclusive hotel, Rex Grenadian, and the views were quite beautiful, but i hate this island. i have been there many times and there is nothing to this place. the beaches are not nice and the vendors never take no for an answer. the people are rude as well. went to a hotel to avoid the vendors and we did, but this would be the place to cut and make it a sea day. or better yet take me to margarita island.

Port 6; St Georges, Grenada; A new port area built other side of the old town and port. You can visit the castle, very small, or wander the old town area. once again many taxis and trips available. Caught a water Taxi to the beach which is across from the harbor, nice beach area. It cost $4 per person but if you walk up the slope from the beach it is only a dollar per person back to the ship on the small local buses, same as in reverse from ship to beach, takes about 10 - 15 minutes.

We took an island tour with Reyno, an intelligent local who loves his island and wants to see it thrive, both economically and environmentally. His tour was very informative and educational. We stopped at Veronica's Vision, a local venue for promoting/selling the spices of the island. We also visited an operating spice plantation, and were given a great view of various spices and how they grow and are processed. The drive around the island was beautiful. It was a worthwhile tour, well worth the money and time. Read Less
