Cruise ships sail on

A rainy George Town was deserted yesterday morning after five cruise ships that were scheduled to visit Grand Cayman sailed right on by the island because of bad weather.

Rain and rough conditions caused the ships scheduled, Rhapsody of the Seas, Carnival Conquest, Carnival Victory, Holiday Dream and Radiance of the Seas to make the decision to sail on.

The day had been scheduled to be a busy one for retailers, taxis, buses and tour operators with the potential for thousands of cruise passengers doing last minute Christmas shopping. Instead, it turned into an opportunity for locals and residents to have some comfort while browsing the stores.
