We drove our rent-a-car from our hotel on Seven Mile Beach. It took about 10 min. After check in, they took us to the Stingray City. The package(US$159) we choose comes with this trip... More

We debarked from Carnival Freedom on October 5, 2011, were tendered over by ferry, and easily found the guides for the Stingray City and Dolphin Encounter combined excursion through the cruise ship. That day, Carnival Inspiration and Ecstasy were also in port at Grand Cayman and our group was comprised of people from all three ships. A comfortable bus ride... More

We cruised on the Carnival Destiny to Grand Cayman and booked a combo excursion that included Dolphin Cove and Stingray City. The Dolphin Cove grounds are really nice - well-kept and professional. When you arrive in the parking lot, you will walk down a manicured path through lush vegetation to get to the building where you'll check in. There are... More

We ended up going to Stingray City then back to the dolphins. We were in a small group with one dolphin Sally who... More

Our excursion was a Carnival Cruise excursion - It included time at the Turtle Farm across the road. Swimming with the dolphins was a magnificent experience. Professional photographers took photos of every moment my husband & I spent with the dolphins - the whole set on disk was a bargain @ $100 (considering 1 print was $25). Don't bother bringing...
