Grand Turk Island Arrives at 7:00am - Nov 12, 2017, Departs at 2:00pm - Nov 12, 2017

"No excursion necessary. Just walk off the boat and sit in the sun, snorkel, walk down to Jack's Shack, etc. " - Jonalan1
"Grand Turk is my favorite place to do nothing, we laid out on the beach under an umbrella eating a massive plate of nachos from Margaritaville, drinking 2 for $5 cups of rum punch and an order of jerk chicken from jack's shack. This was the perfect port for our last stop as all we wanted to do was just chill and unwind." - BOOGIEMAN
"This is my 3rd trip to Grand Turk and love it as a really nice beach right off the boat, (technically you could jump off the boat and you're in the swimming area-I don't recommend it). We like to get off the ship and go to Jimmy Buffets for a nice lunch. I usually get the calamari and a burger, with a very nice and strong pina colada. After that we secure a free chaise lounge chair and bask in the sun while taking periodic dips in the water, usually nice and warm where I dive in all the way. I don't care to take any excursion, but the pools at Jimmy Buffets are really nice and there are a few things to do there for a few hours. It's one of my favorite places, so it gets a 5-star." - dwoodgar49

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island) Arrives at 10:30am - Nov 13, 2017, Departs at 6:30pm - Nov 13, 2017

"our cruise went to freeport and princess cays, this port was my favourite!! it was so beautiful you can go in up to your neck and see your toes on the bottom, no waves to knock you around and kick up sand everywhere, we didn't even snorkel and we saw so many fish swimming by our feet...I even saw a dogface pufferfish!! I would book a cruise that goes to princess cays again because it was beautiful... the locals that work there were kinda rude if you ask me....I said hello to a few and they blankly stared at me (you would think they would be appreciative of tourist fueling their economy) the only time they were friendly was when I was spending money in the shops, but it didn't ruin my time, we truly loved it there and didn't want to leave the lunch was basic, backyard BBQ food with a touch of Bahamian cuisine mixed in. I would go back its a perfectly planned beach day. what's there not to like? " - MarButler89
"It is a beautiful island. White sand, the ocean is such a beautiful clear color. Free lunch was served which we really appreciated. We did the dune buggy excursion which was so much fun. Got a tour of the area, their first light house and church" - sneace
"Love love love this island keep this one maybe do away with Bahamas " - ruthnjim
