Verdant Isle shares port plans

Members of the Verdant Isle group behind the proposed $200 million cruise port project shared some of the details of the plan during a whirlwind series of meetings in Grand Cayman this week.

Led by Royal Caribbean CEO Michael Bayley, the delegation which included executives from Carnival Cruise Lines and other partners in the consortium, met with tour operators, taxi drivers and government as well as the Protect our Future youth group, among others.

Verdant Isle members shared some preliminary designs of the new port during their visit and promised more detailed drawings would be released within the next few days. The group said they would release as much information as possible in advance of the people-initiated referendum, expected to take place late this year or early in 2020.
