Caribbean cruise holidays are set to become even more fantastic with the news that another island could soon be added to Caribbean cruise routes.
Grand Cayman, the largest of the Cayman Islands, is to get a cruise berth, meaning that the island could soon be a new port for cruise liners and passengers to experience.
"Berthing facilities will take Cayman from the yesteryear of cruising and will allow us to provide a safer, standardised and enjoyable experience to those who call on our shores," tourism minister Charles Clifford said.
"When you have berthing facilities disembarkation and embarkation are simplified and shortened."
A number of cruise lines already sail the Caribbean and could benefit form the new berthing facilities in the future.
Royal Caribbean sails both the eastern and western Caribbean, whereas Costa Cruises' Pearls of the Caribbean cruise sails to the likes of the Dominican Republic, St Lucia and Antigua.
