Came into port via a cruise...standard fare. Would recommend leaving the port and going into the town. I was most impressed with the cleanliness. Of all the areas is the Eastern and Western Caribbean I thought Georgetown stood out for this reason. I also felt very safe there and due to the many recognizable banks and grocery stores I almost...

One of my cruise stops was in Georgetown. There's not a lot to see at the port unless you love to look at banks, so find a guide to take you to Sting Ray City. You hop on a boat, and they take you about a mile out into the water where you will find hundreds of friendly sting rays.... More

I found this to be a nice port. Yes, as others have said this port has the typical shops you will find in other ports, but it is very clean and the employees are nice. The port is pretty small, but the Cayman Islands are a small island chain with approximately 60,000 residents so I did not expect much. I... More

Cayman Islands Jeeeeeeeeesh!. What to do here? I think about 1 hour will do it. Minute beaches and a shopping strip of about 1 KM. A few bars that jut out onto piers. A museum that was closed on a Monday, A church and the obligatory Margaritaville....that about does it. Not one for any ones bucket list unless of course... More

Like so many places they have the similar shops and services. Get beyond the port and walk around the town. That said the port area was clean and the personal was polite and courteous.

We saw all of the shops, bars and restaurants of the port area while visiting Georgetown from our hotel on Seven Mile Beach and wanted to check out all of the activity and do some shopping but found that since we were not visiting with a cruise, as a security precaution, the vast majority of the shops were off limits...

We arrived in Georgetown, Grand Cayman along with 5 other cruise ships - ours, the Oceania Riviera, being the smallest among them. So, something like 25,000 cruise passengers crowded the streets and shops. The crowd, of course, tainted our experience. Seeing all the Canadian branch banks here makes you think you might be in Canada. We stopped at a cafe... More

We drove through George Town and thought it was a quaint, pretty place. We went back one evening and it was closed. Really, at 5:00 p.m. almost everything was closed. We found a Burger King near the downtown area that stayed open until 6:00 p.m. I wish it had been closed too. I paid over $30 for two Whopper Juniors... More

Our ship docked at Georgetown Port & it was a very nice area. This city is very clean, upscale & friendly people. There are many places to eat & buy touristy gifts. We went to the beach & it is very easy to get transportation at the dock, cab, tours, and buses. Safe area (many banks & police)

There are so many things to do on Grand Cayman Island that unless you love shopping. several stores were closed and the prices are high,high,high. The cruise ships dock here so if you go when they are in town it will be wall to wall people.
