Cruise ships are returning to the Cayman Islands in March 2022.

The government of the British Overseas Territory said it was projecting the first vessels to return to Cayman beginning March 21, pending Cabinet approval. 

It has been almost 2 years since the last cruise ship visited Grand Cayman before the onset of the COVID crisis

During the first phase of the cruise industry relaunch, liners will be limited to 40% of previous guest volumes which means a maximum of 75,000 during the period, the Ministry of Tourism said. 

The destination will require all crew and passengers to be fully vaccinated.

Cayman Tourism Minister Kenneth Bryan said the fact remained that while the pandemic persisted, all travel, whether by air or sea, presented a certain degree of risk.

“However, as we are seeing with stayover arrivals, our Island’s high vaccination rate, coupled with having the right safety protocols in place, is allowing our tourism industry to recover.”
