Grand Cayman Cruise Port

One look at Grand Cayman Island and you can see why it’s among the most popular cruise ports in the Caribbean. Its pristine white sand beaches, picturesque ocean side villages, and plethora of sports and activities, Grand Cayman may well be the archetype of what all of those Caribbean cruise stereotypes are based off.

How to Get to Georgetown
Grand Cayman harbor has a tender wharf, and ships must remain at sea for the duration of their stop. Passengers must board smaller ships to shuttle them to the island and back. However, once on land you will find yourself immediately in the heart of Georgetown’s shopping area.

One Day on Grand Cayman
Despite being small, Grand Cayman is a bustling cruise hub that hosts almost two million visitors a year. Grand Cayman is especially known for its lush underwater ecosystems. Try the semi-submarine and fish feeding show or the Atlantis Submarine Excursion to take it all in from the safety of an Atlantis underwater vehicle. Or, get up close and personal with some rays in a one-tank dive during theStingray City Dive.

Visitors looking to keep their heads above water can wander through the beautiful Queen Elizabeth II botanical garden, or get their retail therapy on at the mall in Governor’s Square featuring designer and luxury goods.

Port Information
Many major cruise lines dock at Bridgeport, including Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Celebrity, and Norwegian. The Caymen Islands are a British territory, so the locals should all speak English fluently. The official currency is the Cayman Island Dollar, but American dollars are accepted almost everywhere. There are over 500 ATM’s around the island, so access to cash should never be far.
