  1. First of all many thanks to those who have responded. Being from the UK hiring a car is not an issue for us as everyone drives on the "proper" side of the road for us 😁. Having hired a car the last time we were on the island we were looking to see if there were any alternates open to us but it seems clear using public transport is not viable and while the use of the ferry may be a nice way to travel across to Rum Point getting from the port to the ferry terminal and then getting back again seems a lot of faff for us so I think we will go with the hire car option again.
  2. We will be visiting Port Canaveral as our first port of call in February next year. Port times are shown as arriving 13.00 departing 21.00. We do not want to visit any beaches as we will have Caribbean beaches to visit later in the cruise and we do not want to visit any Disney resorts as they do not appeal to us and I understand they are to far away from port for us to get any real benefit if we were to go there. We would love to go to Kennedy Space Centre but again, given our arrival time of 13.00 we do not think that is practical as they close at 18.00 so at best we
  3. Many thanks to both of you for your information. I will check out the timetables, fares and amount of effort needed to use either of these options compared with using a hire car and will go from there. Cheers John
  4. My wife and I will be in Grand Cayman in February on our latest cruise. We have visited the island before which is when we discovered Rum Point. During our next visit we want to go back to spend time there before heading back to George Town and Seven Mile Beach for the rest of the day. During our last visit we hired a car to tour around and would be happy to do that again, especially as we are from the UK so it means driving on "the proper" side of the road 😉, however from reading other threads it seems we may have a couple of other options open to us now, public transport and a
  5. Many thanks for the response. Having read up a bit more since I posted my question I had come to the decision to get taxi's both ways if we decide to visit the beach resorts. One port down, several more to research. LOL.
  6. crewsweeper Can I ask why you say get the tram down to Mahahual but get a taxi back? Does the tram not do return trips? How much do you think a taxi will cost if we do take one back to port. I will be there in February and am starting now to look at trips while in port but was a bit confused by the tram/taxi comment. Thanks. John
  7. My wife and I will be visiting for a day next month as part of our cruise, we have never visited the island before. I am aware there is an Island Tram tour available near to the cruise port, has anyone used this tour company? We have a few questions we hope previous cruisers can answer for us. Where does the tour start from? Is it a hop on hop off type tour or are you on it from the start all the way to the end? How long does it last? How many stops are there, and where are the stops? How much does it cost? and finally;- Is the fare an all day ticket or
