Cruise tourism industry is in jeopardy

With a blunt assessment of the state of Cayman’s cruise tourism industry, Premier, Honourable McKeeva Bush, says cruise lines are warning they will bypass Cayman if berthing facilities are not built in the next two years.

Mr. Bush says the point was hammered home at a recent meeting of the Florida Caribbean Cruise Association.

In a statement released last night, the Premier says from the tone of the discussions it was clearly evident that the cruise executives were giving a final chance and were once again warning that the Cayman Islands cruise tourism industry is in jeopardy.

Government expects to have an agreement in place next month to pave the way for work to begin on the George Town waterfront.
