Grand Cayman is one of my favorite ports - Great Snorkeling and Sting Ray alley is so much fun.

"Hell" on Grand Cayman is a tourist trap -- forget it.

yes we did the Hell , Turtle farm and Rum Factory
was great and alot of run-----found many souveniers and bought the Rum cakes to take home for everbody on my list ---samples were available and they were wonderful. We loved Cozumel and Grand Caymen
we did the Jeep ride at Cozumel for our 1st excursion and will always remember that one--the BEST excursion we ever had

We were on Inspiration in August of 08 and did the same Itinerary. Grand Caymen is a beatiful island but a lil pricey. The stingray tours are a lot of fun and 7 mile beach is beautiful. Make sure you try the Tortuga rum cakes (there awesome). Cozumel is really nice too but when we were there it was 110 degrees. We did the beach break excursion and it was a bit overpriced. You might want to find a tour guide when you get on shore there usually a bit cheaper. As far as Inspiration she is a gorgeous ship and there is a lot to do. The only negative about her is the size of the pool, its rather small but alll in all shes amazing. Bon voyage and have a great time.
