Georgetown is a destination for cruise ships, and there may be two to three anchored offshore on any day (except weekends). This means you will be sharing the shopping with a couple of thousand cruisers. The up side is that shopping for upmarket jewelry, watches, perfumes and cosmetics is extensive, but compare prices with what is available at home before... More

This is a busy cruise ship port. The shops are either souvenir junk shops or high end jewelry shops. It was crowded and there was a lot of traffic. It was not what I was expecting.

We didn't have an excursion booked for this call so we just walked around the port and town of Georgetown. The people were super friendly and there were a lot of shops to look around in. The town itself is very nice.

Lots of shops, local arts, restaurants, etc. We ended up there on an island day-tour during one of the cruise ships -- and you can definitely notice a difference downtown when they are there. Wow, the difference 4,000-5,000 people makes!! We enjoyed a nice meal of KFC (the only place that wasn't packed and then even it was) and shopped... More

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

This was a port of call on our cruise. I went with one daughter SNUBA diving and had a blast. She was 10 and her first time underwater. 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.
