Default Rainy days in port?

Having checked the weather forecast for our days in port next week, it looks like RAIN in each one We are scheduled for Grand Cayman, Cozumel, and Key West.
Does anyone have recommendations how to make the best of it? We are cruising with first time cruisers and want to make it as enjoyable as possible.

Don't worry about the weather. It changes very rapidly in the Caribbean. If it does rain, it might do so for about 20 minutes, and then the sun usually comes back out (unless it is at night!) You'll have more need for suntan lotion than an umbrella. Enjoy your trip.

exactly what Jerry stated, and its a very nice warm rain at that. Its actually kinda neat when you are snorkeling to look up thru the water and see the rain falling.

We saw rain in our forcast too. It couldn't have been more perfect! The "rain" ended up lasting 10 minutes in the morning. That day, we had to find a can of Solarcain for his really bad sunburn (didn't plan on suntan lotion!!!))
