Cruise berthing concept drawings are not final designs

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands (15 May, 2019) In response to various images posted online the Ministry of Tourism has issued the following statement.

The images being circulated are examples of concept drawings which are necessary at various junctures throughout the evolution of the project for illustrative and discussion purposes. The images in circulation are not for construction (one of the images clearly states this,) and they have not been approved as the final design of the cruise berthing piers.

The release of these images represent yet another attempt to mislead the public and derail the cruise berthing project. Consequently, the public is encouraged to refer to the recent media release issued by the Ministry of Tourism on 8 May 2019 in which the Deputy Premier confirmed that “neither the Major Project Office nor the Cayman Islands Government have entered into any deal with any company bidding to design, build, finance and maintain the piers.”

The Ministry would like to take this opportunity to once again remind the public that accurate information and all of the latest news regarding the cruise berthing facility project can be accessed by visiting www.supportourtourism.com and updates are posted daily on Facebook.
