In Grand Cayman you are required to ride a tender boat to and from the ship. This is the case no matter what cruise line you visit with. Its only about a 15-minute ride and the water is crystal clear so enjoy and look at the fish in the water.
The port itself doesn’t have much other than jewelry and diamond shops. A few shirt places but in general very little. There will be plenty of taxis at the tender docking if you want to go somewhere else.
This island has a lot to offer but the best place to visit is the Turtle Farm. Whether you take an excursion or a taxi and go on your own, you will not regret it.
This port is also excellent for any type of water activity. From scuba diving, beaches, or snorkeling. We find it has some of the clearest water in all the Caribbean.
This port you will visit quite often if you cruise a lot in the Western Caribbean. However, we have never found it get old as the water is so clear and there are plenty of water sports.
