Your stop at Grand Turk may well be cancelled.
There has been spread of Noro like virus at Grand Turk and there has been some cancellation of ships scheduled stops there.

You may wish to 'try' and confirm.

Enjoy Eurodam.
We've sailed her five cruises and enjoyed that ship far more than we ever expected.

We'd happily sail her again.

Great...we are looking forward to it. I sent an email to Holland America with a reply from the "Presidents Office" that it could take weeks to reply....cruise leaves Saturday and was just curious what the change in plan would be...surely they now by now.

You "MAY" have a longer stay in San Juan
or you may have a relaxing day at sea.

I thought that this issue might have been cleared up by now..Instead of waiting till you come back, to get that email, try contacting your travel agency. They may have someone recently back forn their crusie that may have current info.

where we now have a family SCUBA snorkeling day planned. We definitely will take a quick lessons. One thing you will notice is that Celebrity has tweaked and improved each iteration of the Solstice-class ships, so the Solstice was improved upon when the Equinox was launched and the Silhouette has some features that are not found on either of those two ships.

I called Vacations To Go...they had not heard of the issue...upon checking with Holland America they were told there has been no change to the itinerary...we shall see.

We did not stop in Grand Turk and had an extra sea day. I am told sewer water had leaked into the fresh water at Margaritaville.
