We have been to Grand Cayman many times. Simply.....beautiful. If you haven't tried swimming with the Stingrays....."Just Do It!" It's exhilerating! We didn't do any of the excursions on Grand Cayman this time, but did go to the "7 Mile Beach" which was beautiful. Took a bus there for $2.50. The really cool thing about buses there, is that there is really no bus stops per se. There are bus shelters were you can stand to keep out of the sun. However, if you see a bus, all you need to do is wave and they will stop for you no matter where you are. Same thing for getting off...just tell the bus driver where you want to get off and he'll (she'll) let you off there Try that in New York!

At Grand Cayman, we just decided to spend the entire time at 7 Mile Beach and we were glad we did! It was beautiful! Kids stayed in the water the entire time! The sand and water were just so pretty and clear and the weather was great! We rented jet skis and had fun on those. It was a very relaxing day after doing an excursion the day before.

We love Grand Cayman and have been there before. Stingray city is a must if you haven't been, go! 7-mile beach is close by ($4 cab fare) and beautiful. You can't go wrong with any of the excursions, but the island is easily explored on your own. We love this place!

Easiest port I've been to for walking around and self-guiding about, except maybe Nassau, Bar Harbor, Cozumel and the Inside Passage towns in Alaska. George Town seemed like a lot of Florida beach towns I've visited except for the driving on wrong side of street part. We did the "Atlantis Submarine Adventure" shore excursion that Princess offered ($99.95 for 90 minutes) and loved it. I always do shore excursions offered by the ship--love the "we will wait for you, just in case" promise they have. The Atlantis people were very organized and professional. I was a little nervous about the entry ladder down into the submarine, but it was not difficult like I thought it might be. The sub itself was cool (temperature) with roomy seats, individual large portholes which came with a laminated color sheet hanging by each window to help you identify all the fish and creatures you might see on your journey. Handy hint: be the last in line to climb aboard the sub and you will get to sit right up front by the captain/pilot where you can see everything through his HUGE window at the front of the sub and all his controls, too. Plus had a little extra room there. Surprised it was not stuffy or claustrophobic at all. Reef was beautiful at 100 feet deep and the ride went too quickly. Saw lots of reef life, schools of fish and a sea turtle who came swimming toward us and then disappeared under our side of the sub. Even though it was a bit pricey, I would do it again. Hey, where else can you ride in a real submarine, dive a 100 feet and "be up close and personal" with such beautiful marine life? Well, maybe Disneyland, but that's not real! This excursion was definitely one you could arrange yourself in George Town. Atlantis' location is only a 5-8 minute walk from the pier where the ship's tender drops you off when you arrive. Not much danger of missing the ship doing that. The main drag in George Town is loaded with jewelry stores, souvenir shops and eating places. Try a "spicy beef patty" from a local vendor--a beef mixture in a fried empanada/turnover crust. They are apparently "big" in the Caribbean and delicious! There is a Hard Rock Cafe right along that main drag that makes a mean virgin Mohito. Sure was refreshing after walking around in the heat and humidity! Learned that the Cayman Islands were named after the "caiman" that abounded there when the islands were first discovered. They are smaller than a crocodile or alligator, can live in salt or fresh water and are the most aggressive of the three. They are good eating, so they disappeared almost completely after the islands became more inhabited!

Grand Cayman was absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. I would definitely love to go back and do an Excursion or two. Would definitely recommend getting off the boat and exploring this beautiful place.

My absolute favorite port! I wasn't sure how I'd like Grand Cayman but I've now sailed there twice and I'd go back again and again! The beach is wonderful and I still can't believe I swam with stingrays!
