The port area serves its purpose efficiently. A constructed dock area where the tenders arrive is well kept and clean. There are officials that direct you to the appropriate area, and what is pleasing, is that only official tour guides and couriers are allowed within the port area. All others are curtailed by fencing outside.

This feels like every other "desperate" port of call for cruise ships! Locals pushing the HARD SELL for "authentic" local goods from China! It does have one of the better views of the cruise ships of the ports that we have visited. Paradise Restaurant, just down the road, has even better views of the ships and delish tourist food (yes...

We visited while there was a ship in port, however, the area was pretty deserted. Many restaurants and shopping places (a decent mix of high end, mid-range, and souvenir shops). We had lunch at the Creperie on the second floor of the mall area, and had excellent salads and crepes. Also found a helpful attendant(?) around the taxi stand that... More

Took a bus from the Ritz-Carlton to Georgetown. It is a busy area with shops and restaurants. I looked for a few things and could not really find what I wanted. The restaurants looked ok and some were quite nice. Our driver pointed some out to us. It's always good to find out where they eat in town. Lots of... More

What a fantastic way to be greeted! Friendly and helpful people everywhere to embark on just the right tours. Lots of small shops for purchasing small items to remember the island by. Clean and economical shopping. Would recommend.

We visited here as part of a RCCL cruise. Unfortunately Tripadvisor do not seem to let you review cruises for some reason so I've broken it down into ports of call. This port is used almos exclusively by cruise lines. If you want to go ashore be oreoared to wait a little for tenders. Once ashore it us chaos. There... More

This is a hustling and bustling place and is a great place to shop and meet other people. The only thing was that when I came here on the cruise(June 9) the first thing I almost immediately saw and heard were the people trying to sell you tours. I love grand Cayman, but I disliked it at the beginning due... More

We spent about half an hour in here while we waited to board our cruise. Everything about the port was great. Friendly locals, wifi, festivities, great food, and duty free shopping.
