Grand Cayman
Snorkeling Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
First snorkelling stop wasn't so good and the guides said that, second stop was better more to see with coral and fish and sea current not as strong better for kids.

Stingray Swim Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Buy your own under water camera as they charge a fortune for there own cd,over crowded when we arrived.

Little boring and you can walk them yourself in approx 15 mins, again pesters by the staff there to get my daughters hair braided and to buy t-shirts.

Was ok, tough going for kids or older people, you need to be reasonably fit to walk them. Pestered at the end and followed by the tour guide to the bus to receive a tip.

Atlantis Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
No need to book excursion through cruise ship unless you want to visit the water park. Got a taxi ourselves and explored through the hotel and onto cabbage beach.

Beach Break Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Grabbed a taxi for $5 each to cabbage beach much nicer and quieter away from paradise beach, easy walk to explore Atlantis and take pictures yourself,

Booked excursion with carnival to do countryside tour,interesting with the sugar cane but rushed when visiting a local house,you sign a disclaimer stating you will not give the locals money or food/candy etc. Had security follow us the whole day which felt a little worrying. But best to be safe!

My favourite port out of them all. Get the local trolley bus for free and hop on and off when you want. Went to both castle and fort for $5, walked through the town felt very safe, everyone welcoming, great tour of the castle and fort, walked back through the local shops visited the cathedral then a local bar with snacks, best excursion day and all done independently for $10 for two adults and two children.

Took a local taxi to historic downtown $4 each. Make sure you say if you want the main/new downtown, not a lot at the old historic downtown approx 8 local shops but not pushed to buy anything shop at your leisure small bar and snack places. Then walked along the beach to Pilary beach away from governor beach And the crowds. Very quiet here with snorkelling and beach bar and restaurant but little expensive. Beautiful white sand and clear water.

Taxi back to the port was $8 each but was little too far to walk, once you start walking it's hard to stop a taxi as you will find they fill up at the beach before heading back to the pier.
