Booking Form Submissions and Confirmed Reservations sent to our Reservation Department contain vital information regarding your arrival into Port. Information sent to us by clients is checked for accuracy but cannot be guaranteed due to the sheer volume of daily requests, averaging over 100 requests daily it is difficult to guarantee that we will catch all form submittal mistakes. All Ships have differential arrival/departure times, with over 20 Ships visiting weekly it is imperative clients send us correct arrival information, we then do our job and match the correct excursion for your times in Port. Grand Cayman does not recognize daylight savings. As such, ships are usually one hour ahead of local time from March to November each year.

Injury, Loss of Personal Items and Tardiness
Discount Excursions Ltd will not be held responsible for injuries, death, loss of personal effects, or late arrival of the Purchaser to the pre-reserved excursion(s).
Most of our Excursions are somewhat physical, unfortunately life itself carries along a certain amount of risk (crossing the street, driving your car, shaving, etc) Our tours are no different. Some excursions will take you over water, in water, some will take you on a horse and some will have you drive your own car.
Loss of items is annoying so be sure to leave all of your precious valuables on the ship. We are not responsible for losses.
Rule of thumb:
All excursions are organized with enough time to reach your cruise terminal for departure. If allowing enough time is not a possibility due to your ship arrival/departure time we will not reserve your excursion, simple as that.
We understand on rare occasions tendering is a problem making everyone reserved on your excursion late, we are prepared for that, but do not sleep in and expect others to wait for you, that will not happen.
All directions for your specific meeting/times will be found in your e-mail confirmation which is received following a 20% Excursion Deposit Placement. Please make sure to read this information prior to your excursion date to assist you in planning your day in port. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Excursion Reservation Requests
Booking requests sent from Website users to Discount Excursions Ltd do not constitute a booked reservation. Following a booking request sent from user, Discount Excursions Ltd will e-mail a secure/encrypted availability report to the email provided by user and a link to a Secure Page in order to place a confirmed reservation (reservation deposit).Receipt of this 20% deposit confirms the reservation of the excursion.
The availability request is not a reservation, it is a method used in order to make clients aware that the excursion is available as well as to ensure clients do not attempt to reserve an already sold out excursion.
Availability is transmitted as current availability, Discount Excursions Ltd will not be held responsible if the requested excursion is no longer available by the time a Credit Card Deposit is received to secure the reservation. A valid major credit card will be needed to confirm any reservation on our reservation system.
When an availability check shows the excursion currently available please keep in mind that the excursion is available at the time of response, it does not mean in any way that the excursion is available two months later or at any other later date. All availability is current availability and does not reflect next month, next week, or later that day.
All reservations are conducted on a first come, first served basis. Once the excursion is full there is absolutely nothing we can do, so be sure to reserve it as soon as you can.
Deposits and Reservation Emails
Once a completed credit card booking form is received for the excursion, excursion deposits will be processed to reserve/guarantee places on the requested excursion. E-mail confirmations for the selected excursion will be sent to purchaser(s) by Discount Excursions Ltd within 2 business days.
Confirmation emails will state: Type of excursion reserved, clientâs invoice transaction number, directions to our Discount Excursions Ltd kiosk on the cruise port, excursion or relevant excursion information. A payment receipt will also be attached confirming deposit placed for the excursion, outstanding balance due on arrival and the clientâs name, email address and phone number.
