Regent cruises arranged for us to go down in a little submarine to see the reef. It was by Atlantis Submarines and was very well run. We went out to the sub in a comfy boat and the swop of those arriving with those departing was very smoothly done. The sub was easy to enter and you sat in two... More

We had a wonderful time in Grand Cayman! The people were very friendly and no one was pushy about trying to sell us anything. It is such a cute place. I cannot wait to go back for another visit!

The stores were pretty dumpy and the shoreline had a sewage smell to it. The water was not as clear as I had hoped it would be. And the prices for things were higher than we thought they would be as well.

On the day we stopped here on our cruise there were 4 other ships in port and needless to say made for an interesting visit to the town. The town can be walked around in 30 to 45 minutes despite the crowded sidewalks and one can see everything. What there is to see is a lot of overpriced jewelry stores,... More

The capital of the caymans has little going for it. There's very little of its history on show and plenty of average shops selling kitsch tat to the cruise ship tourists. That said, it has a certain relaxed charm in the evening once the cruise ships have left

The classic tourist trap. Nothing to see or do, just a bunch of crappy shops selling very crappy and pricey souvenirs. Avoid this place.

Crazy when cruise ships dock. Thousands of people. Many jewellry stores & souvenir shops. Restarants on water have nice view. Lots of drivers trying to sell their tours. Interesting to see fisherman clean & sell their fresh catch.

We stopped there on a cruise as many others point out it is lots of places selling the same stuff. What really struck me (I was on a cruise and we stopped at 4 different ports) all the ports seem to have the same "Exclusive shops" trying to get your money. Some interesting things though like the people selling and... More

As some of the other reviewers have mentioned - this place is not cheap!! Very expensive. After about 15-30 minutes there really not much more to see, other than more stores. There's alot of merchants trying to get you to spend all of your money and cab drivers wanting to take you on tours. We decided to just walk around... More

GC is not a cheap island so some prices were high but with some searching you can find bargains, we went on a Sat when there were no cruise ships in port so many places were closed, but lots to see and search through
