Grand Princess Ports of Call Planner

Western Caribbean Cruise, December 2007

It is very likely we won't step off the ship at all. But just in case we decide to see the sights ashore, here are some links to information about each port of call the Grand Princess will make.

I will add some more links as I find them so check back often.

Taj Mahal Shopping Plaza, Ocho Rios

First Port of Call -- Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Here are three links with info about what to do around the port area whilst dodging aggressive street vendors: Frommer's Ocho Rios Guide,, Ocho Rios Shopping Centres.

Local News -- The island's major daily newspapers are the Jamaica Gleaner and the Jamaica Observer. And there's a weekly tabloid, The Star.

From Kingston, the Gleaner's radio station, Power 106 FM, has news, talk and music of Jamaica.

Hell, Grand Cayman

Second Port -- Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
The Cayman Islands have the highest standard of living of all the Caribbean Islands. But there is also Hell. Some links, Cayman Islands Restaurant Guide, Grand Cayman Wiki, Maps of the Cayman Islands.

Local News -- For local and tourist news check out the national daily paper, Caymanian Compass, and Cayman Net News Online.

For online local radio there's Z-99 Radio Grand Cayman and you can listen here.

Third Port -- Cozumel, Mexico
Guide to Cozumel, Los Cinco Soles, Mexican Arts & Crafts Store.

There's not much to do except enjoy the beach and the BBQ. Shopping is limited to some local handicrafts.
