We are going on a western in a few weeks and I was curious as to the condition of Grand Cayman and Jamacia? Has anyone been lately?

Tom, Grand Cayman is coming back but there is still lots of devastation. We toured the southern part of the island and it reamins pretty much as it did the day after the hurricane. Many of the properties on 7-mile beach remain closed as well.

Jamaica is fine.

Tom, we walked for miles and came across SeaGrape Beach on 7-Mile Beach and it was great! I would recommend it if you want a relaxing day at the beach in Grand Cayman.

Tom,
We went to Grand Cayman in late Jan/early Feb., and saw the impact of the hurricanes enroute to Stingray City. You primarily saw large areas of dead plants/trees. Since we have nothing to compare with, the ports shopping area was in "working order", but we don't know how it was before the hurricane.

In Jamaica, we did not see any signs of the hurricane in the shopping area, or en route to Dunns River Falls.

Hope you have a great cruise!

Thanks for your input. We don't need to go to Grand Cayman to see hurricane damage. Hurricane Charley hit here and a little more north on Aug 13 04. We still have plenty of devastation. I was hoping that Grand Cayman didn't get it to bad as it was so pretty there. Our own Sanibel Island was very badly dammaged, and the terrain is a lot the same. Thanks again.

Man, it sure was a nasty year wasn't it? I was in Orlando (certainly not as bad as the coast) for Charley. Coming from Minnesota, it was an adventure to say the least. I think I'll take a good old blizzard anyday!

We will be in Grand Cayman next week on Triumph. I know we will enjoy ourselves. Might as well go onshore, spend a few bucks to keep their economy going so they can rebuild!

Recently visited Grenada & was heartbroken to see the devastation there. Compared to that Cayman seems great.

Cayman was really leveled. With a max elevation of about 70 feet, there was nowhere to hide from Ivan.

I would skip the beach and head to Capt Marvins for Stingray City. It was GREAT! Some damage to the reef but the fish were still there.
