Pirates have captured popular culture and have appeared in everything from movies to news reports. While real pirates are not the friendliest group to be around, the pirates found at the Grand Cayman Islands during Pirates Week are a different breed. From November 11 to 21, pirates entertain visitors with fireworks, food, drinks and more. The Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort takes part in the festivities and offers the Pirates Week Package. The special Marriott Grand Cayman package is perfect for every amateur pirate and includes one bottle of rum, two rum cakes, a pirate gift and deluxe accommodations. This deal is available online at the Marriott Grand Cayman Resort’s website.
Pirate Week celebrates the swashbuckling heritage of the Cayman Islands. Three cornered hats, parrots, rum bottles, raspy voices and eye patches fill the island during Pirates Week activities. Dance parties stomp out the rhythm of Caribbean drums into the early hours of the morning. The highlight of the week is a pirate invasion. Two old fashioned pirate ships bristling with buccaneers appear in George Town Harbor. The pirates storm the beach and delight thousands of onlookers as they recreate what a pirate invasion would have looked like. Every year brings a special twist to the invasion, and this year promises to be no different. The Pirates Week website details a full list of events.
Guests should not let Pirates Week sneak up on them. Those guests who plan their own Grand Cayman Island invasion by November 5 can take advantage of the Pirates Week Package at the Grand Cayman Marriott Resort. Aside from great pirate-themed gifts, the Pirates Week Package offers a low nightly rate of $205/night. To reserve this rate online visit http://www.marriott.com/GCMGC
