Question St. Croix

I hope to get more responses from this post than my last in this section which was ZERO!

Big rum & fans we are trying to figure out how far the Captain Morgan distillery is from the Cruzan Distillery??? And how far from dock?

While I'm at it has anybody done either of the tours?

Yes DW and I did the Cruzan Distillery excursion. It was the last stop on the excursion and the best stop. You get a tour of the distillery and they show you how the rum is made. You walk along the catwalk that runs through the plant between huge vats of the solution that eventually becomes rum. After the tour (about 30 min.) then you are given several tickets and released to the bar area. Rum punch and daiquiris are served and other rum drinks also. I opted for the rum punch that is premixed but just ask the bartender if they can "sweeten" it for you and they will give you a really nice extra shot. The rum flows freely on this tour. We were in the bar area for about an hour. Don't worry about running out of tickets the attendant will give you more or just pick them up off the tables. Most people returned to the bus with two drinks, one in each hand. Needless to say that was the best bus ride back to the ship. DW and I enjoyed this excursion. I don't recall how far these tours were from one another or the ship.
