Grand Cayman Cruise Ship Excursion Information
Cruise Ship passengers arrive to Grand Cayman
daily, for some passengers it is for the first time, for many it is their returning
visit to our shores.
Cayman Islands are by far the most anticipated stop for cruise
ship passengers, because of the peaceful surrounding, beautiful
beaches, no street
site vendors, beggars or crime. You will be able to fully
enjoy our beaches, excursions and Duty Free Shops in Grand
The biggest complaint heard from cruise ship
passengers is " We never spend enough time in Grand Cayman!"
Cruise Ships are only in the Cayman Islands for a short 6 hours,
they then depart to either Jamaica or Cozumel continuing their
cruise fun to other Tropical locations. If you are
arriving by Cruise Ship here are some hints and info to make
your shore excursions less expensive.

As we all know, shore excursions
can be booked directly from the Cruise Ship. That is, if
you have money to burn!
Ships charge a huge commission for booking Island Tours,
Submarine excursions, Glass Bottom Boats, Snorkeling Trips and
so on. You can save a bundle of cash (better spent on
shopping) if you book your excursions directly with the
companies offering the services here on the Island.
All excursion companies here in
Grand Cayman are fully licensed and insured according to
Government policies and regulations, this will assure whatever
trip you book yourself will be of the utmost standard. In
fact, all the excursions you can book through our Website will
be offered to you by your Cruise Director for a much higher price!
Why book earlier
After booking a cruise all Cruise
Ship passengers know the itinerary, this makes it easy for one
to know when they will be in port. Because of the
sometimes-limited availability, visitors should book the most
popular excursions early to guarantee seating.
