I live in Grand Cayman and according to our port authority. your ship comes in on 2/14 at 7:00a.m. and departs at 2:00p.m.

Hope this information helps. If you need anything else just e-mail me.

Donna posted my review from last month. Grand Cayman was not our favorite place as you can tell by the review. I have also read a couple of other messages that indicated the shop people there were very rude. I would suggest you take the tour of the area and the swim with the sting rays. The tour goes to Hell and also the turtle farm then drops you off at the boat dock for the trip to the sand bar to swim with the sting rays. Picks you up and returns you to the pier to return to the ship.
If you decide to shop there, be ready to pay high prices and deal with rude people.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Overall the trip was great, we just did not enjoy Grand Cayman.

HI, I WAS ON THIS SAME ITINERERY IN 2000. I GUESS I SAW A DIFFERENT GRAND CAYMAN. WE ENJOYED THE ISLAND A LOT. THE PEOPLE WERE VERY NICE TO US.

WAS ON THE CELEBRATION LAST TIME. JUST GO HAVE A GREAT TIME. CRUISING IS A FANTASTIC VACATION......... HAPPY CRUISING!!!!

oh burtie!

I am so sorry you didnt enjoy graand cayman ...we were there in october for 10 days and loved it ...I am looking forward to saying hello to some of the people I met there..

we didnt like the hard rock cafe but loved the other resturants we were in...

I did the stingray tour when we were there and it isnt for me, I was very fearful and I know how silly that is and sounds...it must be some kind of phobia for me..

I hope to walk 7mb and pick up somethings that I wish I had bought when there before ..

thanks for your trip report, I found it so helpful and will file one when return :-))

here is a pick taken from paradise cafe which is right across from the hard rock ...

thanks burtie

Jol
