Default Grand Turk

We are scheduled on our cruise in October. We are suppose to go to Grand Turk. Well I heard that they received alot of damage from the huricane and may not be opened for cruise ships for weeks maybe even months. I know that we will either get an extra sea day or another port, but the questions I have is if we already booked our excursions, How will we go about booking them at another port? Will Princess let us know ahead of time if we are going to another port? And does anyone have any guesses where we will be diverted to?

I found a really good site with news from Grand Turk. If they are showing live news, you can go to "on Demand" and they have a lot of footage of the Hurricane damage. They have been reporting that the cruise port will hopefully be open in a month. They said RCCL and Carnival cruise lines will pay to have it all repaired and help others around the island with the rebuilding.

I don't know about your refund of your excursion tickets, but if you look at the Princess Passage Contract under Section 7 & 8 it will explain why they can change ports of call without notice.

Good Luck.

I had planned to spend our day in Grand Turk at Margaritaville- sniff.

Perhaps Princess will select another port or just take us back to Princess Cays.

I know they can change the ports, thats why I said another port or sea day, what I was asking is if anyone had an idea of which port they may change it to.
