George Town, Grand Cayman

RCI_SHX_Antigua07Welcome to George Town! Located on Grand Cayman, just north west of Jamaica, Georgetown is the capital of the Cayman Islands and is truly remarkable. Known for its incredible white sand, clean turquoise water, duty free shopping and some of the best diving and snorkeling in the Caribbean…we promise…You will LOVE this port of call!

Our ship will drop anchor off the coast of George Town on the west side of Grand Cayman. From there your adventure for the day is just a short 10-15 minute tender away. And speaking of adventures…there is so much to do here!

As you arrive from the tender, you will notice an abundance of taxis. So…whether you decide to do a planned shore excursion or prefer to explore on your own, the choice is yours. Interested in snorkeling or scuba diving? Some of the best diving in the Caribbean can be done on Grand Cayman. The underwater world among the reef that surrounds the island is breathtaking and unforgettable. If you are one that prefers dry land, you can bike ride the West Bay Loop or Visit Queen Elizabeth Park. You can even take a trip to Hell and live to tell about it! Again, whatever you choose to do…Grand Cayman will not disappoint.

Cozumel, Mexico

 

RCI_Cozumel, Mexico15055_CZM_1464If you enjoy white sand beaches and clear Caribbean water then Cozumel is the port for you! Although only 28 miles long and 10 miles wide, Cozumel is Mexico’s largest island.  Located off the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, Cozumel is rated as one of the top 2 diving destinations in the world for its incredible coral reefs and soft, white sand. This popularity is credited to Jacque Cousteau, when he brought attention to the island in a series of documentaries he made in the 60s.

The question you will have to ask yourself when planning your day in Cozumel is not, “What is there to do?” But instead, “How will we do it all?” If you are active and looking for some fun, Cozumel offers unbelievable Snorkeling, Diving, Sailing, Fishing, Kayaking, Horseback Riding and much more.

Perhaps you’d like to take the day and experience the most exciting and largest Eco-Park in Latin America, Xcaret. Filled with botanical gardens, a monkey park, restored Mayan ruins, museums, awesome beaches, natural pools and even underground rivers…you won’t be disappointed spending the day at Xcaret.

Ever wondered about Mayan culture? Visiting the Maya archeological site of San Gervasio, which once was the place of worship for the goddess Ixchel, the deity of fertility, medicine and weaving. Take a guided tour through the ruins, through the lush jungle and spot an iguana or two, while learning the details of this beautiful site

Cozumel is home to many locally owned and fantastic restaurants and shops filled with warmth and rich traditions.  Whether lying on the beach, learning about the magic of the ancient Maya or taking part in an adventure of a lifetime, you will be swept away with what Cozumel has to offer!
