Carnival is not docking in Grand Cayman due to recent storms. They may replace with another port.They are working on rebuilding and hope to be docking by Oct.Any questions contact carnival @888-carnival.
With the extensive damages I wonder if it will be opened in a few weeks. (I have read on that web page that the place where we tendered...(church street) was all gone. So they even have to rebuild the dock where passengers are let off.
I do believe since Cayman gets money from tourist dollars this is a port that wont be setting empty for a long period.
Hmm, thats strange-
How do ships go there if the dock is missing? And what is there to do there if things are destroyed?
This is direct off a page from Grand Cayman/
Grand Cayman was heavily hit by Hurricane Ivan, our Island's damage was extensive. Power lines are 75% damaged, phone lines about the same, 50 to 60% of all buildings have been damaged, 30% of buildings have been totally destroyed, out office looks like a bomb went off inside, most vessels are damaged (2 can be found in front of our office, and no, we are not on the water) few cars survived, luckily no deaths have been reported.
It has only been 4 days, but to the many people whom have stayed behind it feels as 20 years have passed. Your cruise liner will not be visiting Grand Cayman any time soon (more on that later) the Port is closed, all inbound flights (tourism) have been cancelled, evacuation flights are currently operated by Embassies & Cayman Airways, only Cargo flights are allowed to enter Grand Cayman.
Our Cayman Staff is o.k., Jarred and Sherry are shell shocked. Jarred is dreaming of cold beer, Sherry is offering free excursions for all in trade for a shower . Our Cayman Office, which is also our Billing Office will be down for sometime being another reasons for this Post. We are currently working with our bank in order to be able to issue the refunds as soon as possible.
Now I am wondering if you say the ships are going there---are they just docked outside with no people going in there??
