Among those ships heading back to Grand Cayman in this first week of November? Princess' Coral Princess and Carnival's Inspiration, Conquest and Imagination along with Norwegian Spirit, Holland America's Oosterdam, Radisson Seven Seas Navigator, and Celebrity Summit.
Some -- but not all -- attractions will be open in time for cruise calls. These include Pirate's Caves, Stingray City, and the village of Hell. Restaurants, for the most part, have generally reopened. Island tours and horseback rides are ready to go. Most dive operators are back in business.
On the other hand, some attractions may not immediately be reopened, including the Butterfly Farm, most golf courses and some shops. Those passengers on ships returning to Grand Cayman in the first few weeks of November should be prepared for flexibility in their plans.
