The turtle Farm. It's really just a small store unless our tour guide didn't show us the right place. Took all of 15 minutes of our time I think. They offer more selection than the cruise ship store.

You can also get them in downtown Georgetown. If you want to go out there, you can see the turtle farm and visit Hell either on the way there or back. They are all on that end of the Island, past Seven Mile Beach.

The "factory" by the turtle farm is larger and had a wider selection to taste. The shop near the tenders offers the same selection of cakes, but is smaller and had fewer out to sample.

The cakes are also available on the ship (a more limited selection of "packages") and they are available on line as well.

So the "factory" does not really involve a tour showing the making of the actual rum? Or is it really just another store selling rum and rum cakes? Is there tasting of the different rums, or just the rum cakes?

There were samples of cakes (my favorites were the Original and Pineapple but they were all good) and rums/rum mixtures (maybe 6-8?) to try.

Due to rough seas, all the snorkel and scuba excursions for the 4 ships in port were cancelled, so we were actually on a tour instead of in the water! The location was pretty busy so getting a cab back to the docks should be a piece of cake. LOL.

Have a great cruise!
