Day 3 – Cayman Island
At 8:30 o’clock in the morning the "Majesty of the Seas" reached the shores of Grand Cayman: the small Capital of George Town was the destination of our travel. There, organized excursions to pirate caves were offered as well as snorkeling with stingrays, horse riding, Rum tasting and jet skiing. Alternatively, you could just have some fun on the beach. For leaving the ship, each passenger had to check out with his Sea Pass.
We were told to be back at 5:30 pm as those who were not back in time would remain on Cayman Island. After a short look around we decided to rent a Bus.
Our guided tour started with a disappointing ride through George Town´. After that we visited Hell, a special Lava formation, It is funny to write a postcard from here, but not exactly what we had come here for. Also, we didn't want to go straight to the beach. But the landscape was not that impressive and we were damned to take a few more stops, for example at a Dolphin Cove, a Rum Cake Point and a place which was announced to us by the driver as “a special landmark” - wow, cool, a turtle farm were you have to pay a 20$ fee to enter. For us it was just another rather touristy spot and not what we had intended to see... Nevertheless we were on the way to the beach and although the ride didn't quite meet our expectations it showed us why you should visit Cayman Island. It’s not because of the Turtle Farms or unseen Pirate Caves. It’s because of the lovely beaches and the beautiful diving areas. Don't
misunderstood, the trip over the Island itself was maybe worth the $20, but merely and simple not exactly the expected exploration of the Island. Also shopping turned out to be a bitter disappointment. Typical tourist junk and other trash were offered in the shops, with silver, rum, leather, or folk instruments being some rare exceptions. So, we headed straight to the beach, which turned out as a great idea. The beaches on Cayman Island are so beautiful. So we had some buckets of beer at the beach and relaxed for a few hours before we had to return.
