Here is a list of the Caribbean cruise ports, and their status as of yesterday.
Of course, these are only the ports Foo-Foos can get into, and leaves out some IWJ stops. Very, very sad for the islands that will have to get along without tourist dollars for quite some time. And for those who love to visit them.

That's most likely because the big foo-foos don't have ports there. Those who put these lists together forget to include the best (ports and ships) Rolling Eyes

I have read that there are 120 ships scheduled to go in to Tortola in November to keep the tourism business going. Not sure how..

I can't imagine they'll find much but debris. Certainly nothing for tourists right now, at least in the area where the cruise ships can actually dock. Maybe it's just a stop to leave off supplies, and as a show of support.
