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.

We were very disappointed in the harbor area now, all the little shops are gone, no chance to dicker with the sales folks, prices are very high and a lot of the stores are closed

The harbor at Georgetown doesn't offer much. There are a few stands selling souvenirs but there are better places on the island to shop. I was only there for about an hour and didn't purchase much.

If you go, fine, if you don't that's fine too. There are a lot of souvenir shops, but that's really it.
