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

We were really excited about our cruise to Grand Cayman but when we got off the ship, we found it to be dingy with very little to do except shop. Not what we expected at all.

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...
