Grand Cayman closing 60 days to cruise ships

Recommended Posts

There are a lot of ports closing for longer than the 30 days.  I think that it will be inevitable that the general cancellations by cruise lines will be extended beyond the 30 days.

I was going to ask you what your opinion is on that.  Now I know😇

Where did you read this?  Could you post a link of the article?

Every port in Canada closed to July 1

Port of Seattle closed to July 1 

Grand Cayman 60 days 

 

I'm sure more will follow.

 

The part about the cruise line cancelling more sailings beyond the 30 days is my own personal feeling based on Port closures and how events are currently unfolding.

Where did you read that Grand Cayman was closing for 60 days?  I tried googling it, but did not find it.  I also went on the Grand Cayman cruise board, and did  not see anything there either.

I agree.  I hope I'm wrong, but I feel like it's going to be longer than 30 days.

Ask the person that started this thread.  I took it from them. Regardless.  GC is a minor player in the grand scheme of things.

Absolutely.  Look at China, they are now reporting next to nothing for new cases and I bet it’s still over a month or more (optimistic) before cruises resume there.

but due to the Jones' Act, I thought they had to make port on atleast one other non-US location before being permitted back to the US to disembark.  Guess there could be a lot of sea days with a day in either Labadee or Coco Cay.

No that was the first step.  Yesterday they closed until July 1 

 

edit..sorry I was going by what I saw posted here, maybe it’s not true as I did a quick search and couldn’t find anything

In April you cannot  be guaranteed a port. Thats the thing. Baltic states, New Zealand and Scandinavia are closing their ports till like summer or smth. Latvia has just closed its border today, New has done the same yesterday. I would say the only viable paths at the moment are the ones located in the Caribbean and towards Russia lol. The most untouched regions at the moment. Or you can just stay at home

I read the article too but it doesn't sound like Port of Seattle has decided to close till 7/01.

It sounds like Seattle is not officially closing, but will basically have no cruise ships because Canada is closing.

Whether or not Seattle closes its port, if the Canadian ports close it makes round trip Alaska sailing illegal under the PVSA as they cannot stop at a foreign  port.  That is unless a waiver to the PVSA is granted.

I got that but that is for the cruise lines to decide and not officials at Port of Seattle.

Not for the cruise lines either as it would be a violation of the PVSA
