    We are looking to get off in Grand Cayman and have the ceremony and small reception at the Grand Old House.
    As for the liscence, do any of you know if both bride and groom have to go pick it up? I have read that it takes 2 hours to process?
    Any info and details are appreciated.
    Thanks

      I'm not sure about the requirements. Grand Cayman looks like a gorgeous spot for a wedding! That's the port we visit the day after our wedding in Jamaica. Just an FYI and you've probably already looked into this...Grand Cayman is one of the most missed stops due to weather. I'm sure you'll be fine but I wanted to throw that out there for you.

        I know for the weather
        BUT we are looking at April which has little disturbance at all.
        Thanks for the tip !

        OOO, I've been to Grand Cayman via cruise... it's awesome! You have chosen a gorgeous place for a wedding! What cruise line are you taking?
        As for the requirements, there was someone on our boat who got married there, and yes... they both had to do the paperwork.

          What did you do in Grand Cayman? We are on Freedom of the Seas and that stop is the day after our wedding. Any recommendations?

            We are going to Grand Cayman the day after our wedding also. Then we go to Cozumel. I can't wait. I hope the weather is good since it is so close to Ike. We sail in 8 days!

              Sting Ray Snorkeling. They take you out to a sand bar on the north side of grand caymen where sting rays gather. They are very friendly and will eat right out of your hand. And don't worry these stingrays are small and have never hurt anyone. We have such great pictures from there.

                Make it easy on yourself and do the legal stuff back home. Then you won't be rushing all over. Time in port goes so quickly and you need to make sure you are back on the boat on time.

                When we went to Grand Cayman (Twice on a cruises actually) we went snorkeling and to the sting ray city. my BIGGEST recommendation is NOT booking with the ship. It's ridiculous! They pull up in a boat of about 200 people! You are lucky if you get a picture with a sting ray. We booked through shoretrips.com both times and you are in a boat with 20 people maximum. it's awesome. Everyone gets to fed them, hold them, kiss them... and they actually have time to teach you about the animals. I loved it. It's also within walking distance to the bus that will take you to the boat (from the port that is)

                  We are looking at Carnival, as my aunt works for them.
                  I was trying to avoid the legal part here...not sure what to do now.
