Grand Cayman

Our first stop during our Carnival cruise was to Grand Cayman – the largest island of the Cayman Islands located in the Caribbean. This is where we picked to do an excursion! I decided on swimming with the stingrays and couldn’t have been more excited about it.


After a morning cup of coffee on our seaside balcony, we set off to take a ferry to the island! We then got on a bus where we had the funniest bus driver. We learned a lot about the island and got a little mini tour, and then got dropped off at our sail boat and then made our way towards Stingray City!




The sail over was so peaceful and relaxing, we had such a fun time. We also had the sweetest people on our boat ride too which made it even better. Once we got there I jumped right in and started swimming with the Rays. It was an absolute BLAST. I wanted to keep swimming all day. I was a little bit nervous at first, but I truly felt so safe. I didn’t realize how loving and friendly stingrays are!




After we spent a decent time in the water, we headed back to the main center to head back to the ship. Had to get some fresh coconut from The Coconut Man before I left though! It was such a solid day. Couldn’t have had a better excursion.
