Caribbean Cruise — Cayman Islands

Some “recently discovered” pictures from the Grand Cayman portion of the cruise.

The one important part was the wedding. We met the new parents-in-law, from Duluth, GA, on the front deck on the first night out. The wife had an accent that I could recognize, though her husband’s accent proved that he “wasn’t from ’round heyah.”

Their son would be getting married when we arrived in Grand Cayman. Never thought we’d hear about the wedding again, but we saw the bride and her maid-of-honor. Can you imagine carting all of that fur-fru and finery to another country to get married? Wait a minute! Seems like our DAUGHTER and SON-IN-LAW did that 17+ years ago!! In Jamaica! More power to all of those brave enough to attempt the high seas AND carry all of your finery with you to do that!!

Heading out to swim with the sting rays, at appropriately named “Sting Ray City.”
Many different “excursion boats” at the time gather at “Sting Ray City.” You just have to remember which one you came on so you get back to the right place!

There’s a Margaritaville in every port!
We couldn’t dock at the shore, because the bay was too shallow. All shore visits at Cayman started with a “water taxi.”

NEXT TIME we go back to the Cayman’s, we want to take a TOUR of the island (Grand Cayman). Getting to play with stingrays and dolphins was phenomenal, but we spent so much time on the buses and boats getting to and from Dolphin Cove and Stingray City that we didn’t get to see/do anything else! Not EVEN to visit Margaritaville!!
