Default Inspiration---Time of Last Tender from Grand Cayman

We will be in Grand Cayman on April 14th on the Inspiration. We are scheduled to be in Grand Cayman until 2 p.m. Does anyone know what time the last tender departs from Grand Cayman?

I do not know the exact time but based on what usually happens for a 2:00 departure they will tell everyone to be back aboard by 1:30. That would put the last tender aprox 1:15. As you exit the ship in the morning there will be a sign either on ship or on the pier (or both) telling you the time of last tender.

Grand Cayman is falling apart as a cruise destination - it was getting too crowded, and veryone has already been there. They have no docks and the tendering was either expensive (if you use trhe islands tenders) or slow if you (meaning the cruise ship) use their own tender/life boats.

Last week, because of high winds, people who got on the island couldn't get off tenders back on the ship. They are were on tenders for hours in some cases. Eventually everyone was bussed to the other side of the island.

I'll be there in February and I do hope all goes well. There are five ships in port that day, which includes two of RCI's monsters (Navigator and Freedom).

A pier would be nice, even if it was built where it wasn't harming the environment. I love Grand Cayman, I've been there twice and in February it will be the third, and it won't be the last!!!!!

We plan to book a Sting Ray/Island tour and hope to have a little time to shop before the last tender. We will definately check times on board to make sure we don't miss the last tender.

I was wondering this as well because I have nightmares about missing the last tender. How is the weather in February in Grand Caymen normally. I have never been and my last cruise to the Bahamas was freezing.
