Video News Release
Young as I may come off to others I personally feel that the opinions of the visitors is what really matters for this allegation. Whereas it is all being debated for the mobility of them. Clearly here you can see the concern that they too have for the beauty of our island & also the service they receive makes a mark on their memory from the different yet beautiful experience of tendering. It is more relaxing & special to be tendered to the island rather than tiredly walking in & out. I don't see why this should be prolonged, it's clear that cayman is already great & "improvements" are unnecessary. We are a Island , so small that we're not clearly shown on the map so why try to make our lil island so commercialized? People come here to escape that hostile living. Only debate we should be having now is bringing back caymanian culture to the tourist instead of all these crazy jewelry stores , bunch of restaurants that hardly serve local foods , lack of cultural scenery on the water front example thatch rope making , catfish boats & bands playing music dressed in old cayman attire. That's what tourism is about , showing who we are. I have so much to say but another time I guess or until someone contacts me. Don't just read , also take heed of what a 18 year old had to say.
Very interesting read.
I had never really thought about the impact of those large ship engines running constantly but that makes a lot of sense. We could be doing much more damage to our environment by not having a dock than if we were to have one and they cut back on having to keep the ships up all day. I'm guessing those tender boats are on the older side too and that is a lot of diesel burning all over the harbour.
Seven Mile is safe, We cut back on carbon emissions, take away anchor damage and accidents, the amount of coral is way less than they originally said and the turbidity plumes are 15 times less....This becomes an easier decision every day.
I see on another site that Carnival committed to $50 Million in funding so this project looks better for Cayman all the time.
After that article I am now a Cayman Weekly fan. CNS has turned into a gossip site simply expressing their biased opinion rather than balanced news. This article is so refreshing. Thank you.
This dock will be a financial disaster for the Cayman Islands.
I overheard the protest organizers talking and said they expected 2,500 people to come out and they were very discouraged with the low turnout. Does anyone know how many Caymanians were out there? I heard less than 75. And many if the Caymanians that did come out either owned the tender company or work for them or friends with them. So their motives are clear and have nothing to do with preserving the environment, rather they are trying to preserve something else green...
