Caribbean Island To Cruisers: Dress Right Or We'll Send You Packing

A warning to vacationers planning a cruise to Grenada: Be careful how you dress for the visit or you just might be kicked off the island.

That's the word from the Jamaica Gleaner, which reports police in Grenada recently ordered a group of cruisers back to their ship because of the way they were dressed.

The news outlet doesn't say from which ship the vacationers were visiting or what, specifically, they were wearing, but it says the move was part of a larger campaign targeting youth who show their underwear in public by wearing their pants below their waistlines.

The Gleaner quotes Grenada's new police commissioner, James Clarkson, griping about people who "forgot at this point where their waist in their body is. They think their waist is by their knees . . . it's not just a question of legality, it's a question of morality."

The New York police force veteran has vowed to crack down on sloppy dressing on the island, among other things, the Gleaner says.
