  • We walked around the port area and enjoyed food and shopping. We then walked into town and it was wonderful. Shops and restaurants of all kinds and friendly people. We never felt unsafe for a moment. ...  more »
  • In George Town there is no port or a dock for large ships. When you arrive with a cruise ship a steamship takes passengers into town. Curious to see iguanas, roosters and other animals freely. Many souvenir shops and typical restaurants in the commercial area, with a convenient wi-fi is available for an hour or so.

  • 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.  more »

  • Cruise port was extremely crowded with 4 ships unloading. Trying to find your shore excursion was a little challenging as there are so many people. Shopping is OK once you leave the port and head across the street. Of course you have to take a tender from your ship to get here and it's not a quick process. As long as you are patient, you will finally arrive. Port could be much larger to handle the amount of people there.
  • Laid back and friendly. It's a little piece of paradise.
  • George Town Cruise Port is easy to dock at and port authority representatives are very courteous and helpful. It can get very busy when cruise ships drop anchor and start their tender services. Very easy to walk into town or catch a taxi service to go further onto the island.
  • Enjoyed visiting this place. Small, casual, and overall very pleasant
  • I really enjoyed visiting this place. The people were friendly and clean city.
