Grand Cayman
Rum Cake Factory Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

You have to a take tender to the port from the ship. The tour was rushed with 15 minutes at each stop and the obligatory gift shop mention. We thought the excursion included a tour of the factory but it was just a rum and cake tasting. The tour did show the beautiful island with clean streets and sidewalks. We felt safe on the island.

Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

The excursions offered by Princess did not interest us. There were 5 cruise ships calling at Nassau which made for a very busy and bustling port. We did our own walking tour of the shopping area. The pirate museum looked interesting and the person playing the pirate outside of the building was a character but passed on the $12 entry fee. We lunched at Senior Frogs which was busy but did manage to be seated near the water. The staff were friendly. We did some shopping and if you mentioned your cruise ship, the placed(jewelry stores) we visited gave an additional 10% off.

Princess Cays
Port Rating: Not Rated

We have been to Princess Cays three times so we know what to expect. There is a short tender ride from the ship which can be rough on the way back to the ship as the wind picks up during the day.

Princess has this day down pat. Bringing the food and drinks ashore and setting everything up for the 3000 passengers plus crew. We have yet to pay for the 30 minute pleasure to rent a kayak or paddle boat. These should be free similar to that found at an all-inclusive resort.

City Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

The tour was part city and beach. We stopped near a haunted house near the beach for pictures, then onto a church with red shutters. Next was the salt flats which was vacant of the flamingos which are usually present. Next was the Governor's beach, which was beautiful and the water was warming than at Princess Cays. A beautiful island with the best prices form alcohol of all the places we visited.
