Grand Caymen

On Grand Cayman book the shore excursion to Stingray City, a gathering spot for stingrays on a sandbar off the island. You will get the chance to feed, pet and swim with one of these huge sea animals. Not an experience it’s easy to forget!


You can generally visit the exact same sites regardless of whether your ship docks in Montego Bay or Ochos Rios, Jamaica (about 2 hours apart by road). Dunn’s River Falls, which you’ll want to actually climb, is Jamaica’s most popular cascading waterfall. For shopping, Montego Bay has duty-free stores right at the port.

Mayan ruins are a fixture of any trip to Mexico. From both Cozumel or Playa del Carmen, you can visit Tulum, site of the only Mayan city built on the coast. Cruisers also rave about the shore excursion to Xcaret, an ecological theme park which you could go swimming along with dolphins. If you land in Cozumel and wish to visit Playa del Carmen or vice versa, there’s a 45-minute ferry between the ports.
