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.

Grand Cayman is one of those ports you're lucky to stop at even when the sun is shining!!

The islands are surrounded by very shallow reefs and that's why so often when it is windy or just "not the greatest" weather the ships cannot go near the island.

Per Carnival at 12:30p Central time on 9/17/04 that there are already ships going into Grand Cayman now and they expect it to return all ships with Carnival within the next few weeks.

I was also thanked for coming straight to the horses mouth...hehe.

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??
