Those cruising to Grand Cayman and looking for something different to do may find the new Cayman Motor Museum of interest. The new museum has cars and bikes, featuring 80 automobiles dating back more than a century. They have Ferraris, Rolls Royce, and even the Batmobile from the 1960s TV series. Check it out here
We are not snorkeling or diving people and we've done enough Stingray City tours to last us, so all that leaves is a long beach, turtle farm, and tourist trap post office/souvenir shop with a rock formation behind it. Oh, I forgot the butterfly farm. Just isn't interesting anymore, but I am a car enthusiast so next time around I'll go ashore for the exhibit. At least that way they'll be getting some of my tourist dollars.
Another issue is tendering. I weigh the the hassle of tendering against having a nice quiet ship to relax on during the stop. A dock makes it easier to decide to go ashore and at least wander around. The Cayman government continues to use a Byzantine approach to dock construction. The present project still is wallowing in bureaucracy.
You are so right! I asked him how he wanted to celebrate his 70th birthday and cruising was his first choice. I didn't give him any other options! Leaving from New Orleans will be new for us and we are looking forward to it.
