Grand Cayman is still at tender port. When seas are rough, it makes tendering too uncomfortable or too dangerous so ships cancel their call and sail right on by. Sometimes there is an alternative. When conditions permit, the tenders can land at Spotts Dock on the south side of the island.
Thousands of cruise passengers have been diverted there since Wednesday this week, and the forecast is that the conditions will continue through the weekend.
Details appeared in the January 5 edition of Cruise News Daily.
