Cruises from St George's
St. George's is the capital of Grenada, British West Indies. The city surrounds a horseshoe-shaped harbour, and is an attractive colonial-era town with a distinctly Mediterranean feel that appears to spill down the hill side. When a ship arrives at the new docks, the town explodes into a frenzy of activity, market stalls open up on shore, restaurants and bars fill up, and street vendors as well as local guides come out in force.
Founded in the early 18th century by the French, St. George's still possesses something of the character of a French town, particularly in the red tile roofs and pastel colours of its traditional architecture.
