A lot of cruise ship ports are sort of sketchy. This is the exception. The tenders are incredibly efficient, the port is clean and you feel safe everywhere you go. I highly recommend Grand Cayman as a short stop.

Enjoyed our stop here; we were on a cruise and it was BEAUTIFUL. Love Grand Cayman - so much to see and do, the port was easy on/off with lots of vendors selling their wares.

We visited here while on a cruise and this is always our favorite port. The ships dock off shore and tender boats take you to shore (free). It does take a little time because of the slower lines but not really a big deal. Do...More

small town but nice to look round. Usual tourist shops and then usual small town shops that seemed not too overpriced. Overall just a nice small plane to see. The island itself is well worth visiting though with the island clean and beautiful.

Nice, clean area but can get VERY busy on cruise ship disembarkation times, with lots of queues for pre-booked on-board shore excursions, plus local companies offering their own excursions - must say they are cheaper than the cruise ship prices. We have been to Grand...More

Beautiful water, and lots of fun around the area. Music, food, fun, and easy access. We came off a cruise ship and it was a good day! Lots of fun and so pretty

Great place. Be aware of the sales tactics at most of the excursions Pushing their photo package. Other than that it’s beautiful, roads are nice and clean
