Day 5: The Disney Cruise-Grand Cayman

On our 5th day, we were tendered to Grand Cayman. I worried about this, thinking it would be like getting in a rowboat, gritting my teeth, and white-knuckling it until we reached land. Nah!!!!! You just walk onto this little boat, and go a very short distance to shore.

The drivers/pilots/boat-steerers (or whatever they're called) are so casual about the routine trip that this one even steered with his feet, most of the time:

Grand Cayman is populated by chickens. They tend to roam wherever they feel like. It kind of cracked me up!

A cruise tends to be a FOOD experience! Any time you want, you can order room service, already included in the cost. I'm really fond of the Mickey ice cream bars and cheese trays. The fruit trays go well with this. . .

. . . and tortilla soup with a chicken salad makes a great lunch. The Key West beer was carried on from our first port.

Tomorrow, a little about our excursion in Grand Cayman. . . (unless I do the Bonnie book review. . . . )

Ahhh, nothing like a little sea, a little sun, a little food to get the evening started! Thanks for sharing your cruise!! What's Bonnie been reading now?

Ok, I'm going to tell a little secret about Disney cruise food. We had heard that their chocolate chip cookies were TO.DIE.FOR. So, the night before disembarkation we order 2 dozen of them to take to WDW with us. When the server delivered them to our room my son lied and told him that he and a bunch of his friends were having a "last night party" that evening.

Oh and BTW, they were YUMMY!

Being able to have any food at any time would be really bad for me! I'd probably gain 50 pounds. :)

Wow, that water and sun look so good right now! And that cheese tray looks like just what I need right now. :)

We visited the Cayman's a few years ago and loved it. Did you go to Hell? How about the awesome rum cake factory?

Show me anything that doesn't go with a Mickey ice cream!

Mickey ice cream is the quintessential certification of any Disney trip.

Cool! We leave Saturday for the same cruise, really excited!

Between the pictures of the island and the food I'm sold. Actually we also went to the Cayman's on a cruise several years ago. It was great and would be fun to go again sometime.
