Grand Turk Itinerary Changes
Grand Turk, which sustained significant damage from Hurricane Ike and has been closed ever since, is on track to reopen, as announced, on October 8. That means that itineraries for cruise ships slated to call at the island before then will be altered. Keeping it simple, only Carnival ships had planned to visit Grand Turk prior to October 8. Changes, announced today, are as follows:

Carnival Miracle: The September 14, September 22, September 30 and October 8 cruises out of New York will call in Tortola instead of Grand Turk.

Heads up for October cruise travelers: Although the port of Grand Turk will reopen on October 8, the Carnival Miracle sailing departing on that date will still call in Tortola. The reason for this change is to avoid confusion and keep all of Carnival Miracle's itineraries the same, as the October 8 departure is Carnival Miracle's last Caribbean sailing of the season from New York.

Carnival Liberty: The September 20 cruise out of Miami was scheduled to call in Grand Turk on September 25. Instead, the September 24 call in San Juan will be extended, allowing more time in port, and the following day will be an extra sea day. Passengers on this sailing will receive a $20 per person onboard credit.

Those are the only cruises scheduled to call before the port reopens on October 8. Carnival Destiny is scheduled to call in Grand Turk on October 8 as planned.

We'll keep you posted.
