The only reason we took this cruise was the itinerary  which included Turks Island.  Before sailing from Baltimore  they announced the ship would not be going to Turks Island because of the threat of a hurricane.  Actually on Sunday it was a Tropical Storm over Turks which moved toward the Bahamas our new destination by Monday.  By Wednesday when we were supposed to arrive at Turks it had passed over the Bahamas and was headed for Bermuda. We were unhappy with the ports of Cape Canaveral and Nassau the last time we took this cruise and very disappointed by this switch.

We have taken about forty cruises in our lifetime and have taken only Cruises which do not involve flying due to health lately.
