This week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the historic and legendary The Buccaneer in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. The hotel, a member of Historic Hotels of America, is the longest running resort in the Caribbean. We’ll talk about everything from leggings and dress codes on airlines to the new ban on laptops in airplane cabins on flights coming from Middle East and Gulf countries. Carolyn Spencer Brown, Editor-in-Chief for Cruise Critic, will weigh in on Cuba cruising as well as other Caribbean destinations. Fire Chief Larry Johnson of the Virgin Islands Fire Service talks about his secret eats (funghi and fish anyone?) on St. Croix as well as other island specialties you won’t find on brochures. Most people don’t know the rich history of The Buccanneer (we’ll find out) or that St. Croix is home to three national parks. Zandy Hillis-Starr, Chief Resource Manager for the National Park Service on the island, has some real surprise discoveries. Lisa Kirkley Terry of The Nature Conservancy’s Coral Nursery and Restoration Program, talks about its work to repair and preserve the coral reefs of the Caribbean. Christine Negroni, author of “The Crash Detectives” gives her hypothesis on what may have been the probable cause of the disappearance of Malaysia Air Flight 370 three years after the tragedy. There’s all of this and more as the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from The Buccaneer in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands on April 1, 2017.
