Today we were in the port of Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands from 7:00AM to 4:00PM.
We dropped anchor alongside our sister ship, the Coral princess.

I took a tour of the island.
Our first stop was in Hell.
Hell is a group of short, black, limestone formations roughly the size of half a soccer field.

MY DAILY EMAIL SENT ON JANUARY 12, 2015
Hello,

It has been a few days since my last note. We were back in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday and it was a day at sea yesterday sailing around Cuba. I spent the weekend sitting around the pool watching all the football games on the big screen.



We arrived here at Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands at 7:00 this morning. It is a tender port. Anchored beside us is the Coral Princess.



Today I've been to Hell and back.



That's a picture of Hell above. If you buy a postcard at the gift shop and send it from there it will be postmarked as coming from Hell. Somebody is getting rich showing off some ugly black rocks.

We also stopped at the rum factory and sampled rum and rum cakes. I needed a bigger sample of rum cake. I was getting hungry. I skipped breakfast since we got here so early.



Next stop was the blow holes along the ocean.



Next stop was at the sight of the Ten Sails shipwreck.



The last stop was at Rum Point.



We are about to raise the anchor and sail away. Tomorrow's port is Roatan, an island in Honduras.
