Divers Discover Something Disturbing Underwater off Grand Cayman

“This is a very unfortunate situation” Martinez said

“We will work closely with Grand Cayman authorities to ensure this does not happen again,” Global Corporate Communications Director Cynthia Martinez said in an official statement. “Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. understands the importance of protecting the marine environment and sustaining the well-being of the places we visit.  Protecting the health and welfare of our oceans is always foremost in our minds.”

Scott Slaybaugh, the Cayman Islands’ Department of Environment deputy director explains: “Both the ship’s captain and harbour pilot followed established guidelines, so this is not a case of negligence or error on their parts. We do intend to follow up to see if damage may be mitigated and to review the operational procedures for any alterations that may prevent future incidents.”
