New improvements made to enhance the cruise holiday experience in the Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands Ministry of Tourism recently announced that quick and interim improvements will be made to boost the cruise experience offered to cruising visitors to the Cayman Islands. Simple yet important measures will be taken to make cruising holidays in the Cayman Islands more pleasurable and unforgettable.

New improvements made to enhance the cruise holiday experience in the Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands Ministry of Tourism has announced that enhancing cruise visitors´ experience once they arrive on land in George Town is now a top priority. They stated that some quick and temporary improvements would be made to make guests feel more comfortable during their cruising holidays in the Cayman Islands.

By checking the numbers and analysing the full schedule of cruise visitor arrivals for 2013, the Ministry came to the conclusion that January would be a busy time in the year. They calculated seven ships with around 18,000 cruise passengers, would be at port 16th January, which only reinforced the idea of trying to make the visitors time on the cruise ship more pleasurable.

Improving the berthing facilities is among the tasks the Ministry has set itself out to accomplish in order to achieve their goal. The cruise berthing project will now follow a procurement process that will be in line with the global best practice. The Ministry wishes for the outcome to result in a strong reestablishment and ultimately seeks to get the berthing facility online.

Another fairly simple, but highly important enhancement is water distribution. The private sector will pair up with the Tourism Ministry to provide water circulation at different points along the Harbour Drive on the George Town waterfront. This perk will make sure cruise holidays to the Cayman Islands are better experienced by holidaymakers, creating long-lasting memories for passengers, who will often have to wait in long queues before being conducted back to ship.

Following the line of improvement, the Port Authority of the Cayman Islands has examined the Royal Watler Cruise Terminal and found various physical upgrades. In this moment, The Port Authority is trying to replace the tents that are now worn with new and better shading, and is also acquiring benches to be the substitute of the concrete blocks.

This experience-enhancing project transcends these simple upgrades. The Ministry of Tourism wishes to continue identifying other possible improvements, so that current cruise ships may be as popular as some of the best Cayman Islands hotels and resorts.
In order to keep this discussion going, the Ministry met with the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association on 17th and 18th January.
Cline Glidden, Tourism Minister, declared that his ministry will continue working to boost the cruise visitor experience until there is a proper cruise berthing facility in place.
