    Looking at the Western Caribbean on the Fantasy. Are the port times listed pretty accurate? 11:30 seems late to get off the ship at Grand Cayman. Is 11:30 the time passengers can START to get off the ship, and how long is that process.

    Ahoy Sarah!
    The port times you see are always subject to change, but for the most part they are accurate.  Although 11:30am may seem late, it is still plenty of time to venture ashore to see this beautiful island.  It also gives you the opportunity to sleep in that morning or enjoy some of the activities on the ship before disembarking. It doesn't take long to get Guests off the ship, but in Grand Cayman the process works a bit differently.  To protect their coral reefs, there is not a pier large enough to dock cruise ships so they must drop their anchors in the ocean and use a tender service over to the island.  Many of the tenders are two stories so many Guests can hop onboard for the 10 minute ride over.  Once the ship has been cleared, you will be able to head ashore which is usually within the 30 minutes of arrival, but an announcement will be made for your convenience.
    I hope this helps, Sarah.  Please keep me posted if you think of anything else!
    Have a magical day!
