Default Turks and Caicos cruise port closed due to virus outbreak

Caribbean News Now!: Travel News
I read another article that said it's not only Carnival but all ships.

I would rather go anywhere than chance getting sick. I'm looking forward to that port as we have never been.

Ok--who will be the first to file a suit and who all are they going to sue--the Gov. of the Turks and Caicos, the cruise lines, or both?
Surely someone must be held responsible. Call in Congress to investigate.

Will people be disappointed, yes...everyone needs a little disappointment in life!

Seriously how upset can one get, as I said I would rather miss a port than chance getting sick.

Your right Ron I'm sure some folks will be making a stink about it.

Aerogirl...your spot on and look at life as an adventure...if we were on the ship right now and they changed ports I would be excited to go someplace we have not been....heck our next cruise goes to the same ports as our last, I wanted a different itinerary, but the kids' spring breaks force us into the same...but hey, stull a relaxing fun time for 7 days!!!

Can't sweat the small stuff and don't pet the sweaty stuff

It's just an old saying I thought I'd share!

This is a unique situation. Hopefully they have found the source.

Shame to lose business just because someone doesn't know hygiene.

I think this statement has run it's course..."A bad day on a cruise is always better than a good day at work."
