George Town facing busy cruise ship week

| 29/12/2014

(CNS): Merchants in and around downtown George Town will be hoping to make the most of this week’s cruise ship calls as some 55,000 visitors are expected to arrive in the capital’s harbour.  Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will see the heaviest numbers, when more than 37,000 passengers will be aboard the 17 ships expected to call over those three days. While December arrival numbers are expected to give the cruise industry a boost as the year draws to a close, police are warning drivers that the harbour front will be heavily congested. The RCIPS said that uniformed officers will be on patrol between 8am and 4pm but motorists are being asked to seek alternate routes to avoid delays.

    Worth noting: 17 ships and 37,000 passengers with equal access and invitation to Cayman, without a national marine park dredged, without clouds of coral and sponge suffocating suspended particulate, and other permanent hydrological destructive phenomenon that are part of the unequal cruise pier scenarios.

    Is it not possible on those days when there are 5plus cruise ships in town to close down Harbour Drive for drive through traffice for a few hours? It is just a matter of time before some speeding idiot will take out a a group of walking tourists.
