Grand Cayman is one of the busiest--and largest--ports of call in the Caribbean. Cruisers looking for variety in their port itinerary will be pleased with what this island has to offer; after all, Grand Cayman is renowned for its long stretches of shoreline, diving and snorkeling spots and decadent food (ahem, homemade rum cake). Those looking to splurge on handmade (and tax-free) items should head to South Church Street, while history buffs can hang out in the 18th century at the Pedro St. James Historic Site. If relaxing on the beach is more your style, grab a cocktail and take a walk down Seven Mile Beach (which is actually about 5 miles) or Public Beach for a quieter retreat. It's also the place where life underwater is just as colorful as what awaits on land; hang out with some friendly stingrays (really, they're not bad) or catch a glimpse of the island's famous black coral during a dive.

Pack some sunscreen (since it's almost always sunny here) and get ready to explore the Big Apple of the Caribbean.
