Will be nice to finally see Odyssey! Had 3 cruises cancelled on her including her maiden over Easter last year!

When I booked Thanksgiving week on Liberty, I knew the Grand Cayman on the itinerary wasn’t happening, I wonder what they will do with that day?

We have Liberty booked over New Year’s.  We have not planned excursions, yet, as we had a feeling things might get moved around.

I just booked a cruise on Friday for January 23, 2022. The first port is Grand Cayman. I’ll be watching for itinerary changes. We can just float around for all I care. As long as I’m on a cruise, I’m happy.

I literally just booked a September cruise with a stop at Grand Cayman, and popped into this forum to start researching the port.  I guess I'll have to wait and see what Carnival decides to do instead.

I booked a 10 night cruise that stops in Grand Cayman on 12/17/21. I migrated over here because it's the ONLY stop that I had no idea what to do. Guess I shouldn't have paid it off.

I am hoping that they reinstate visiting to Grand Cayman even just one week earlier.  I am booked on the Pride for the 23rd of Jan, 2022.  I have only had a port stop once in Grand Cayman.  We had a great day.  I am hoping for a repeat. If everyone would just get vaccinated, I think we could make it happen. Just my opinion.

Don’t hold your breath.  Their vac rates are practically at a standstill.

 

Your best bet is to watch articles in either Cayman Compass or Cayman News Service (both online newspapers findable via Google) to see if they start on any of the earlier steps on time.  My guess is that their opening will be delayed if anything, and there’s very little chance of an early opening.

Does this mean that cruises may stop at Grand Cayman starting 10/14/21?

No.  Without reading the CC article but following the Cayman media, I can say that the earlier Grand Cayman opening dates only apply to tourists arriving by air whose vaccination status can be securely verified electronically.

 

The government has been pretty clear that cruise visitors won’t be returning until late January 2022.

When I booked I wasn’t sure if we were able to stop there or not, will be on Liberty beginning of January and wondering the same thing…where are we going instead?

And, to further update this thread, Cayman discovered some community Covid spread this week, so they’re planning to backtrack on the reopening to stayover visitors (arriving by air) and stay closed to tourism until January.  That will likely mean cruise visits are delayed even longer.

 

If you book a cruise listing Grand Cayman as a stop for a sailing anytime between January and IMO April 2022, you should plan that your port stop will be likely switched to some other island.  Before January, it’s definitely going to be switched.

I am on the Celebrity Edge Thanksgiving Cruise.  I've been reading about Grand Cayman not accepting cruises until 2022.  I have called Celebrity twice and they have said it's still on the itenirary.  I'm not sure why they would continue to say this when clearly they are not permitted to go there.  I've heard about Costa Maya as a replacement for other cruises, but Costa Maya is already one of our stops.  If anyone has any clue what Celebrity may do, thanks for that info.

It's still on our 11/27 Sky Princess as well.  I figure they'll replace it on 11/26 or maybe not until we're on board.
