Grand Turk Cruise Center Bests Expectations

The new Grand Turk Cruise Center, which opened in February last year, finished its inaugural season with 136 cruise ship calls totaling 295,000 passengers, far exceeding expectations. December was a record month with more than 48 cruise ship calls and 46,000 passengers. Twenty of the calls were made by Carnival brands. Michael Reimers, the port's GM, noted that not a single call was missed due to inclement weather—an important consideration for cruise lines when assembling Caribbean itineraries.
