Review SummaryA member of the crew became ill and we had to divert our course and did not get to go to Nassau. They did not/would not compensate us (not even a discount on pictures) for the loss of this port. They were unapologetic, when I went to guest services they were rude rude rude. We had specific requests of a refrigerator in our cabin because of medication, they failed to initially meet this request and did not offer any suggestions or alternate accomodations. We went to the serenity deck on our third day of the cruise, they asked us to get out of the hot tub so they could clean it (after it had been open for over 1 hour). The Grand Turks was an epic fail. The island is nothing great, it is a must miss, don't get your hopes up about this being anything more than a party stop at Margaritaville. The last day we went to the lido deck to finally get some sun, we were greeted with the crew painting and doing maintenance (all which could have been done prior to leaving or while we were all at port). All in all this is not a cruise I would recommend. Save your money and take a different cruise out of a different port. I am an experienced cruiser and this was easily the worst experience. Additionally, when we went to the free drink get together our waiter at one point in time told us we could not get any more alcohol, I had to get a senior officer to tell him we could have more alcohol and then he said, oh ok.
