Im taking my mom on her first cruise for her bday in december, were sailing the Imagination.. Can anybody recommend some cool shore excursions. I dive but my mother doesnt. My biggest concern is getting back to the ship in time.......i know paranoid but ive heard some horror stories. Also i would like to dive and get in some shopping in grand cayman but i dont know if there is enough time, we are only there from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Any help with either destination would be awesome.....thanx in advance......
CG: There are really TWO areas where the Stingrays gather. One is at the original Stingray City, 12-20 foot dive. The other is the Sandbar, where most of the snorkel tour boats go. A snorkeler can also enjoy Stingray City as the depth is shallow enough.
Do a search for dive ops in GC. Don Foster's is a BIG one. But there are smaller, more flexible ones as well.
If none of the times work out for your dive through the dive ops, go with the ship's excursion. That way you won't have to worry about getting back to the ship on time.
