Many hurdles to face for cruise berthing facility

Opponents of government’s plan to build a cruise berthing facility in George Town told Cayman 27 there are  doubts the plan will even work.

Sunset House GM Keith Sahm, also active in the anti-port group Save Cayman, said new information has come to light that casts doubt on whether a pier reoriented into deeper water could even accommodate an Oasis-class cruise ship.

He said his dealings with the cruise lines have made it clear that government still has several hurdles to cross to make cruise berthing a reality.

“I mean, one of the things that they’ve always said is that there’s not going yo be any upland development, but both cruise lines we’ve spoken to directly from the Save Cayman group, is that they’re going to pay for it, they’re going to own that upland development,” said Mr. Sahm.

Mr. Sahm said that upland development means more money in the hands of the cruise lines, and less in the pockets of those who depend on cruise tourism for their livelihoods.
