Does anyone know how to find out where the Carnival Grand Cayman parasail excursion takes place? Or drops you off? I've booked an off-ship jetskiing trip and need to let that vendor know where to pick us up. Any ideas on how to track this down?

Bring your cell phone, when you meet up with the ship booked excursion, ask them where you will be going and then call your jetskiing operator. OR, you can assume the parasailing operator will bring you back to the dock area.

I doubt that Carnival is going to let you talk to their tour operators directly. They don't want you booking around them.

Notify your cell phone company before you go that you will be in GC and to "enable" you phone to make calls there. You can also inquire as to the rate. Verizon has converage there and it was very reasonably priced.

If the vendor knows you're on a cruise ship, he will more than likely meet you at the tender dock. If you've arranged this privately, make sure of these arrangements BEFORE you leave. If you've made them on-line and they are not responding to your emails or phone calls, I'd be looking for another vendor.

I assumed that since cruisinwithjen has Parasailing,jetskiing and Stingray City tours planned, that they were trying to arrang the private tour guide to pick them up at the end of the parasailing excursion to save time. (although, things might get confused and it may be best to just arrange them to pick you up at the tender docks.)

But if you are just trying to find out where to meet up, then Penny is correct and the tender docks is the meeting place for all tours.
