After speaking to a couple of people I know who work at CCL corporate offices. Although the peir issue is still up in the air. The main reason behind Carnival talking about pulling out of Grand Caymans is the Tender company. They were due to recive per their contract a 25 cent/person increase , but are demanding a dollar/person increase. Carnival is basiclly tellling them they can accept what per the contract they are due. And once the contract expires talk about farther increases or they can get nothing at all. Most likly out might see 2 or 3 ships skip GC. The tender company then sees Carnival is serrious and backs down and everything returns to normal.
