Tickle your taste buds and engage your senses on this authentic local culinary and cultural encounter.
Take a panoramic drive through downtown George Town, passing the Bell Tower, Library, Legislative Assembly, Heroes Square and the Court House. As you travel, your guide tells you all about the way Cayman Islanders live today and about the fascinating history that has shaped this island nation.
You will visit the Cayman Craft Market to browse among fun and useful items made by local artisans who delight in showcasing their skill and creativity through the crafts they make. Most of them use materials that are native to the island -- shells, coconuts and stones.
Pirates and early settlers brought rum to the Cayman Islands, but the locals have willingly embraced it and made it their own. At the Cayman Spirits Company, the rum is aged under the Caribbean Sea. Take a guided tour inside the distillery where you will learn about the process from distilling to packaging. Sample three flavored rums, and purchase souvenirs if you wish.
At Made in Cayman you will learn how a rum distillery became a cake center and began producing the Caribbean's first commercially-viable rum cake of international renown. Taste the rum cake and the rums as well, with some free time to make purchases if you wish.
An authentic Caymanian restaurant welcomes you to an atmosphere of laid-back island living. Choose your lunch from a menu and learn from the chef or the server how some interesting local foods are prepared and cooked. A sweet plantain dessert follows.
Opt either to shop at Bayshore Mall or to return directly to the ship.
