“Attorneys at Law” the sign said. I thought It was another jewellery store in the shopping mall but I was wrong. It was a very impressive office, but this is Grand Cayman. Packed with 554 Banks plus Trust Companies, Insurance Companies and all sorts of financial institutions. I decided to leave the lawyers to their own devices.
This is a smart place and very much geared up to the cruise industry as well as being a tax haven. We knew that other cruise ships would be in port and as we sailed into George Town, Grand Cayman, the Ruby Princess and Brilliance of the Seas were already at anchor.
We anchored and the tenders were made ready. It was a beautiful day and passengers were quickly making their way ashore when yet another cruise ship appeared, the Disney Fantasia. So four ships were at anchor, all fairly close to the shore.
You can walk around the town in an hour. Apart from a small chuch and small museum, both overlooking the water, the rest of the waterfront at ground level consists of jewellery outlets and touristy stores. It is great fun and when 4 ships are in port there is plenty of bustle.
Prices for watches and gold and silver all appear to be really competitive with 25% savings on UK prices.
