Disney Cruise – Grand Cayman
It all started with a mouse!
Since 1928 when Walt Disney created the world’s famous mouse, kids and kids at heart have expected nothing but THE very best from Disney!
Disney has four cruise ships and each has a godmother. (Well, of course they do, right?) Disney Fantasy, which travels to the Eastern and Western Caribbean, is looked after by godmother Mariah Carey. She christened the ship in 2012 with the blessing, “May God bless this ship and all who sail on it.”
The Disney Fantasy visits Grand Cayman!
Grand Cayman is named after the crocodile (caiman in Carib),
What to do when you visit?
See the sea turtles, of course!
Cayman Island Turtle farm is home to 16,000 green sea turtle at any given time. The turtles were once naturally plentiful, so much so that pirate and private ships often came here just to get fresh meat for their crews, but now are helped along by this farm.
At the farm you can:
*Pet and hold the sea turtles!
*Watch Smiley, the 9 ft crocodile, perform.
*View sharks and loggerhead turtles.
*Visit the aviary – get in with the birds.
*SWIM and snorkel with the turtles.
*Eat (grownups can taste the island’s own beer!)
*Visit Butterfly Central to see the Great Southern White butterfly.
Soak up the sun at Seven Mile Beach
One of the most famous beaches in the world is Seven Mile Beach ….which is only 5 1/2 – 6 miles long thanks to the erosion of Hurricane Ivan.
Pick a spot to roast in the sun and relax, or try your hand at parasailing or snorkeling.
Get wet at Stingray City
Wade in and pet the stingrays here on a sandbar.
***I have to admit this sounded really awesome until I googled…injuries….uh, no thank you.
Here you can actually go to Hell.
I think there are just 2 things here…the black limestone formations….
and the gift shop.
You can mail a letter to receive a postmark from Hell. A conversation piece, for sure!
