This port is pretty cool. It was the first place I set foot when I touched down in the Grand Cayman. There is so much to see and so many things to buy. There were bunches of stalls selling everything from jewellery to figurines, clothes to collectibles. If you are an avid souvenir hunter, this is your one-stop-shop in Georgetown.... More

We were staying on the island and went into George Town for a look around. What we saw was lots and lots of little touristy shops for every budget and lots of jewelry stores. There were not any cruise ships in that day, so it was easy to get around. There were lots of colorful buildings scattered about. We went... More

Did have an issue with the gopro and then the underwater camera. We did get one picture of the event. My wife and other daughter went to the turtle farm. it was... More

Very VERY expensive. Lunch consisted of a fish sandwich, fries, and fried fish and 2 cokes. The cost was just under $70. Really?? Bought a few shirts and got back on our ship. Not impressed.

Georgetown, Grand Cayman is what I would consider a typical touristy beach town. They only way you could tell you weren’t in Myrtle Beach, Pensacola, or Clearwater was because they drove on the other side of the road! Streets are crammed with bumper to bumper traffic, sidewalks are full of tourists, and there are more tourist shops than you could... More

We didn't spend much time here, we walked the strip for a little and bought souvenirs then went to MargaritaVille... which was just as expensive as everything else here was. Went back on the boat after an hour and had more fun there.

Cheap rum, great clothes and Canadian banks (for getting extra cash on the cruise). Very clean, very safe, although, we did see a young woman get her purse picked.
