Deaf Freedom Cruise--Grand Cayman
On Wednesday, October 31, we pulled into Grand Cayman on the other side of the island. Our original stop was supposed to be near the shopping center, but due to high winds and rough seas, we embarked on the other side.
The line to get off the ship went all the way up to the fifth floor of the ship. Rather than waiting in line, we jumped into the pool and did some more boogie boarding. I discovered a hammock in the solarium and took a much needed nap. In the afternoon, we decided to grab a boat ride to the island and do some swimming at the beach. The line going back to the boat was much quicker:
One of the fun games in the evening was the show "Accept or Accept Not" based on "Deal or No Deal." Each contestant competed for an upgrade to the owner's suite on the boat and various other prizes. In the photo below, Peter Artinian from Sound and Fury is shown trying to decide which case to open:
Every evening, the fifth (not fourth, as Fookem noted) floor of the Promanade deck was filled with people:
The two most popular spots on that floor were the coffee shop and the pizza restaurant. Both places offered sandwiches, coffee, cookies and pizzas at no cost. A few of my friends were able to stay up until four in the morning. I couldn't keep my eyes open past two a.m. on my best night!
