You can enjoy this port without leaving the gates.

Do know that Cayman is probably one of the safest ports to visit in the Caribbean. It's my favorite. Clean and safe. You must tender off the boat, the only set back.

go to the little museum in town, easy to miss, but has great information on the 3 Cayman Island. Well worth the time. Then go shopping . Avoid the Margaretaville restaurant as it is very very very loud. Other restaurants are better, unless you like loud. Great roof top pool you can slide into.

We took a 5-min tender ride into port from our cruise ship to see the Georgetown area. The port is clean and easy to get through, and has good security. This is a friendly island and area, and one of our favorites. In fact we are considering a future trip here to stay 1-2 weeks so we can really enjoy... More

We were on a RCCL cruise that tendered at Georgetown. The tendering process is non-problematic, by the way. The shops in the immediate vicinity of the tendering drop-off point are quite nice and varied. The shop owners / staff were very nice and not 'pushy' in any way. If you don't feel like walking around the town much, would definitely... More

Visited George Town as part of an RC cruise. Beautiful island, but main focus is on shopping. There is more to do here than just shop though. Take one of the island tours that they offer outside the port, or the bus station a stones throw from the port. The beaches especially are gorgeous. Keep an eye out for the... More

Everyhing about this port appears new; clean, new building, security galore and friendly helpful staff (but not too pushy)

Great shops and restaurants, very nice people and lots to see and do. The water is beautiful and I would recommend trying the conch fritters at a local bar on the water

As capital cities go Georgetown is disappointing. It seems to have lost its way and sacrificed its history in favour of commerce. There are some lovely small streets where once the odd pirate may have strayed hut the whole set up is geared around the visiting cruise ships which personally I find rather sad as the remaining tourists like myself...

Some people do not want to adventure into town to do shopping and they decide to just hang around here, the place has shops, bars and restrooms adequately located around to not need to go outside of the place, recommended only if you cannot walk and discover the 12 streets for shopping that the place has.

We were also tendered here as well as delayed getting onto the Island, again because of the poor weather conditions. We ended... More
