Grand Turk... we enjoyed GT very much. The pier was not very long which was nice and we chose to go to the beach that was right there where the pier and the ship was docked. There was plenty of chairs and shade (important to us). It was a little rocky when entering the water, but the beach was clean. I suggest wearing water socks. We headed over to Margaritaville and had a wonderful time there. We were the only ship that day, so it wasn't too crowded. We found an empty table with no chairs (no big deal as we spent most of the time in the water..and DH used his walker which had a seat on it). It was a very fun and festive party atmosphere...like spring break..but for people of all ages. We would go there again.
Half Moon Cay (private island)...an absolute dream and tropical paradise!!! We loved it and didn't want to leave. We rented cabana 8..a perfect location half way down the beach. Long stretch of beach with white soft powdery sand and clear water...truly beautiful. Having the cabana was fantastic. It came stocked with water/soda/fruits/veggies/chips and dips. It had wicker furniture a misting fan, an AC, floatation mats, snorkel gear and a shower and a magnificent view! We cannot wait to go back some day.
