Coral Princess Cruise, April 2007 -- Day 7

Sunday, Grand Cayman

The Flag of the Cayman IslandsThe Cayman Islands are very beautiful and we were almost tempted to take the tender ashore and explore Georgetown. The water is clear and there are lots of diving excursions. This was the only port on this cruise that the Coral Princess had to use tenders. Grand Cayman apparently has no dock facilities at all as we were the only ship there.

It is Formal Night again tonight. But we found if you eat in the Horizon Court buffet you still get the Beef Wellington sliced to order while dining in casual comfort.

There's a strong wind from the south and you could feel the sea a lot all evening. And through the night.

The tonight's entertainment was another production show in the Princess Theater. "Dance -- Music, Song & Dance from Around the World." As with last week's show, once again this was well done and it was a highly professional production. And the dancers had even more challenges from the rocking of the ship.

Flag detail with turtle and pineappleAt the top of this posting is the flag of the Cayman Islands. I like it especially because it has the Union Jack on it plus a picture of a turtle with a pineapple on its back.
