JetBlue has added four-hour direct flights to one of our favorite Caribbean destinations, Grand Cayman Island (pictured above). Saturday flights began on Nov. 17, leaving Logan at 10:10 a.m. and departing from Grand Cayman on Saturdays at 3:30 p.m. This is one of the first steps in JetBlue's considerable expansion of direct flights from Boston, and comes just in time for the Caribbean holiday season. One of the best things about Saturday-only flights is that you have to stay a week--none of those skimpy 3-day ''vacations.'' To save 25 percent for stays through January 14, take advantage of a joint Jet Blue promotion at the freshly renovated Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort & Spa, one of the island's top hotels. To get the discount, book directly online or call 866-716-8108 and mention the JETSET promotion for rates from $199 per night.
