Cayman/Jamaica excursions!
I swear I'm gonna drive ALL of you nuts with my questions before I i finally depart for my cruise! We're taking the 5 day to grand cayman and jamaica, so wondering what jet ski rentals are running these days, or if they're even available at these ports of call...any other excursion advice is appreciated!

margaritaville in jamaica and stingray city is a must in cayman. I didnt see any jetski rentals on either island, I am sure they are around just didnt see any.

What do you do in margaritaville? I'm also looking for something to do in Ocho Rios and Grand Caymen...Any other suggestions would help also...

Margaritaville is a bar, w/souvenirs. You want to be sure to do Dunn's River Falls. It is really a sun thing to do. Be sure to take water shoes, or old tennis shoes to wear. They do have them to rent, but I'd rather wear my old shoes, then throw them away after.

Grand Cayman--I second stingray city. You can get it cheaper to book on your own, we just got it when we went to port in Grand Caymen. You can book on line with several private companies, check the boards for the names.

Have a Great Cruise!

In Ocho Rios you want to book with Peat Taylor. It is the most amazing tour and the best and safest. You get the falls plus an island tour with all kinds of places for the same price the ship charges for just the falls. He will also take you back to the ship so you can have a free lunch then continue to tour you. I booked this for hubby and self and mentioned it on the cruisecritic board. It ended up that we totaled 18 plus 3 people who also booked with Peat. I can not speak highly enough about this tour.

In GC we did the stingray tour with Soto cruises and really enjoyed ourselves. The mix up the 3 stops so that you are not in the same spot as the million other cruise passengers that booked with the cruise line. The teach you how to play with the stingrays and held one so my daughter could kiss it (yuck).
