Premier of Cayman Islands Says Cruises Will Not Return to the Island in 2021

Premier Alden McLaughlin says that it is unlikely that cruise ships will be returning to the Cayman Islands this year due to the ongoing pandemic.

Speaking during a press conference on Thursday, McLaughlin said that while he is optimistic that the territory’ vaccine programme could mean a resumption of some travel and tourism starting in March, he has ruled out cruise tourism for the time being.

“Cruise is not on our radar at all at this stage. We would have to be satisfied that the world was in a very different place in terms of safety-related to COVID-19 before we would even consider having the cruise ships come here. Honestly, I don’t see cruise tourism resuming on any sort of significant level before next year.”

“The cruise ship business is not really within our contemplation at this stage.”
