Grand Turk
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Our first port we got off and looked around the shops and general port center, but it was crowded and we were looking for a more relaxed area, so we went to Jack's Shack. What a gem! We loved the food, local beers, and spent the entire time relaxing at the bar and chatting up the part owner/bartender Janet, about life on the island (we were dreaming about retirement there, lol).

BEAUTIFUL! We had booked a Private Cabana... BEST $250 EVER SPENT!! Not only are the first ones off the boat to get to the private island, but we got our private hut (#11), snorkel equipment, floats, snacks, and drinks. After taking in the awesomeness that was our cabana, we decided to do some snorkeling before the tenders started offloading the rest of the boat. What an amazing experience, my wife and I found a stingray right off of the beach and we spent like 20 minutes just swimming around with it! When it was time to leave, the line was ridiculously long, so we took a seat at the bar and watched the line get down to the end and hopped on the last tender back to the boat.

Was forgettable. We just got off and walked around the straw market (every store had the same cheap souvenirs and nothing really neat) and then went to Señor Frogs. If it wasn't the last port one the cruise we may have had a lot of fun their, but we were just tired of drinking at that point, and only got a conch salad (tastes like chewy salsa) and left.
