Grand Cayman's hospitality at first didn't thrill me, we had a fairly rude excursion organizer but she passed us off to another woman and she was much better. Grand Cayman is beautiful, we did a jeep excursion had another couple in the jeep with us. We spent some time at a local hotel before jeeping (this must have been a 2* or less hotel, bathroom was awful, but as expected) beach was o.k., food (provided with excursion) was just o.k. Our jeep tour guide was much better and very helpful (left hand automatic jeeps, left side of road drive) Our jeep was a little run down and kept breaking down on us when we stopped, the tour guide did get it started, but a bit of a nuisance. We visited a rum store and Hell (this was an eery place) and this took most of the day on the island. We were on time to return to the ship, but there was a huge line-up for the tender, so there is no rush from the Carnival planned excursions, don't panic on the timing because if planned through carnival the ship will not leave without you and you will likely have to wait a long time to get back to the ship anyway.
