Default can't get into Grand Cayman????

We are going in Jan. western Carib. on RC. I keep reading that because of weather or something related the tender can't get to this island or that one.

Well my kids have HIGH hopes of swimming with the stingrays, is there any where else on this itinerary that has them if the tender can't get into Grand Cayman?????

Where else are you going? There's a shark/ray alley snorkel trip in Belize.........I don't think that there's anything like Grand Cayman on another island though.

There are a few other places around the Caribbean that advertise sting ray excursions but there is nothing like the Grand Cayman stingrays. There is never a guarantee on any cruise ship about ports of call - Mother Nature IS in charge. Just like snow skiing and Fourth of July picnics the weather will dominate and there's nothing the cruise lines can do about it. Prepare for the worst - hope for the best.

relax, more often than not you will be able to get into Grand Caymen. Don't stress over the weather. I have learned not to even bother checking on the weather at my destination. Why worry and fret if the forecast is for showers or whatever, there is totally nothing that you can do about it.

I have been to Grand Caymen numerous times. I have only missed GC once and that was becasue of IVan and it was shut down for many months because of that.
