The Grand Cayman Islands became a children's paradise last week when two Royal Caribbean International
ships called into port at the same time.
According to the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism, over 9,000 passengers disembarked at the same time over a third of which were children.
Many of the young passengers had been enjoying Nickelodeon-themed cruise onboard Royal Caribbean International'sFreedom of the Seas
Those disembarking at Grand Cayman were met with an exceptionally warm welcome, as locals pulled out all the stops and put on music and cultural displays, as well as a children's treasure hunt.
Trina Christian, Executive Director of the Cayman Islands Tourism Association (CITA) commented: "CITA looks forward to future endeavours of this nature that align with our cruise sector goals and our general Association objective to provide more opportunity for converting cruise passengers are into return overnight visitors."
Cruise passengers arriving on the Cayman Islands will find no shortage of attractions and activities to keep them occupied, with highlights including Rum Point beach, Grand Cayman Botanic Park and the Cayman Islands National Museum.
