    Hi,doing an excursion for 2 hours at Grand Cayman after the excursion we will have about 3.5 hours to hang out before we need to board. Are there restaurants and or any shops that we can walk to? We want to be close by so we can tender and not miss ship.

    Hi Stacey!

    Your Disney Cruise Line vacation is fast approaching and I know you must be so excited for all the fun that awaits you in the Caribbean!  Not only do you have a wonderful itinerary scheduled, but you also get to experience a Very Merrytime Cruise which is one of my favorite times to sail!  But, who am I really kidding?!?!  Anytime is a great time to be on a Disney Cruise!!

    Doesn’t it feel great to have everything decided and planned for your days at port?  Now you get to just show up and enjoy your time!  And once you get onboard, you can peruse the schedule on the Navigator app and plan your time onboard…I can guarantee there will be so much to do – you may even have a hard time fitting it all in!  But you’ll definitely have fun trying to!

    I have found that most ports of call have plenty of shopping and food nearby for travelers!  It is a great place to pick up some souvenirs or local cuisine before heading back to the ship and I do not think you will have any trouble finding things to keep you busy nearby!  But, one thing you may want to consider is heading back to the ship after your excursion!  That is one of my most favorite times to be onboard because its not quite as crowded since most Guests are out on their own adventures!  We use this as a chance to hit the AquaDuck when there are relatively short lines or check out the port day special at Senses Spa!  Or perhaps you just want to relax by the pool and enjoy the view from the pool deck!  Just something to consider once your excursion comes to an end.

    Wishing you a FANTASTic vacation at sea!  Say hi to Captain Mickey for me!

    Happy Sailing!
