Grand Turk Cruise Center to Re-open in Early October

September 12, 2008 By: David Eisen


The Grand Turk Cruise Center, which is operated by Carnival Corp., will resume its cruise schedule October 8 after sustaining no damage from Hurricane Ike to its ship pier according to a completed engineering study. The facility's restaurant and retail complex did incur minimal damage.

"We believe we can complete repairs to the cruise center within a 30-day period and bring cruise ships back to Grand Turk," said Giora Israel, Carnival’s vice president of strategic planning and port development. "We will be investing millions of dollars in the coming months to help Grand Turk quickly re-build its cruise-focused tourism. Bringing tourists back to the island as quickly as possible will play a major role in driving the island’s overall recovery."

The Grand Turk Cruise Center was built to withstand the blows of a Category 5 Hurricane. It opened in 2006 at a cost of $60 million.
