Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Our first stop on our Honeymoon cruise was to Grand Cayman.  I was mostly excited for this day because I would get to swim with dolphins!  This is the only day that the weather didn't cooperate and instead of tendering into Georgetown, we had to  go to the other side of the island and dock in Spots Bay because the winds in Georgetown made tendering unsafe.  

Unfortunately, this meant that instead of a 10 minute drive to our excursion, we had a 40 minute drive, and unfortunately there was nothing in Spots Bay so we couldn't do any wandering.  We just did our excursion and went right back on the ship and took a nap.  Most of the photos I am sharing with you today (because the excursion will be it's own post) are from while we were waiting for the bus to take us back to the ship.  Most of these were taken out back of the dolphin excursion place.  Some were taken at Spots Bay before we got on the tender boat. 

Fortunately, we knew that our next cruise would be stopping in Georgetown, so we'd have the chance to explore.  Also, we did get to see more of the island this way.  I have a thing against taking photos of peoples homes and living conditions, so you wont see photos from the drive.  The Caymans are known for having lots of money but the locals still live in poverty for the most part, unfortunately.

All of the previous photos are from behind the dolphin place and all of the following are from Spots Bay.  The last ones are the view from our balcony. 

This is a Bucket List item:
