As the millions of people affected by Hurricane Sandy continue to recover from the storm, the Southern Cross Club in Little Cayman said it was offering “empathy and big savings” for those who may want to take a Caribbean break from 8 to 22 December. With proof of residency in one of the most affected states New York, New Jersey or Connecticut, travellers can buy one package at the club and receive a second package for free, with a minimum stay required, said Peter Hillenbrand, owner of the resort.
“Hurricanes are part of life in the Caribbean so we can relate,” he said. “We are offering people dealing with the stress of recovery a calm, quiet place to relax, away from the problems left by the storm. The weather in December is fantastic here and our shoulder season is the perfect time to offer deals like this.”
