Carnival Vista Cruise - Day 5


We are in the Cayman Islands! The ship arrived at Grand Cayman bright and early at 7am, but we didn’t get off the boat until 9ish. The cruise ship couldn’t pull up right to the dock, so we had a taxi boat pull up right next to the ship and take us all to the shore. These boats held at least 75-100 people and was so fun to ride on!


We arrived at a dock with even more photographers ready to take our picture with the

cruise ship in the background off in the distance, and a sign that said “Grand Cayman” on it. The pictures looked so great! Once we passed through the gate, we arrived at several shops with all sorts of Grand Cayman merchandise and looked around for a bit until we went into town.


We skipped breakfast on the boat to eat something on land, and I was so glad we did!

We went to a little restaurant right in town, and I had the jerk chicken sandwich with a frozen

latte! It tasted amazing! The restaurant was right next to the water, and we got to watch the

water while feeling the breeze. It was so cloudy due to all the weather in the gulf, but it still felt great to be outside.



Right after we finished brunch, we started walking back to the dock since we had a quick

turnaround to be back on the boat by 1:15 pm. We were going back a little early, so when we ran into some people we knew from the cruise, we stopped with them for a bit to go to a bar. The actual bar had a clear opening on the top with sand and seashells inside. It was so pretty to look at! We all got some frozen fruity drinks, cheered our cups, then after some laughs and chit-chat, we started heading back to the ship.


When we got back to the area where you check back into the ship, the line was wrapped

around the entire building. We got back in line around 12:30 pm , and we finally made it to a taxi boat around 1:00 pm! We were getting pretty worried, but the Carnival crew assured everyone that they would get every person in line on the boat. We made it back on the ship right at 1:15 pm and headed towards the trivia games.


We made it to the Ocean Plaza just in time for the beginning of "Big Band Theory Trivia"My family used to watch this show together all the time, so we thought we had this in the bag! We did not. Out of 20, we maybe got 6 correct each. Those questions were so specific, and we couldn’t remember any of them! Right after that, "Guess That Song: 70’s and 80’s Trivia" came on, and we just had to stay! As my cousin would say, my momma raised me right because I got 14 out the 20 right! They played about 5 seconds of each song and asked us to guess. When they came back to say all the correct answers, we all sang out each and every song the whole way through! Lastly, "Mean Girls Trivia" came next, and we stayed for it yet again. We did even worse than the "Big Bang Theory Trivia!" Those questions were just so specific, like “What did Damion say to Caty as he was driving away?”I had no idea, but apparently a bunch of other people did. The girl directly next to
