Visting Grand Cayman by Cruise Ship

Grand Cayman limits the number of cruise ships in port at any one time to three or four, with a maximum capacity of 6,000 passengers. This limit ensures that visitors have a good experience while on the island and never feel overcrowded in George Town.

If you visit by cruise ship, you'll arrive by tender in George Town at either the north or south terminal, located just steps apart. These terminals are located in the heart of George Town, just a stroll from duty-free shopping and plenty of dining options. The clean waterfront brims with shops featuring fine jewelry, black coral, artwork, leather goods, and other goodies.

Cruise visitors arriving for the day will find plenty of drivers just steps from the cruise terminals. These "guides" offer trips to Seven Mile Beach as well as island tours. You'll find plenty of organized tours (typically to the Turtle Farm, Hell, and Seven Mile Beach).

To experience the island without the rush of a crowd, consider hiring a driver by the hour. If you'd rather spend your time on the beach, take a taxi directly to Seven Mile Beach, located about three miles from town. A steady flow of taxis from the hotels to town insures that you'll have no difficulty returning to the ship before departure time.
