Default No ideas yet but...

we'll be there then too. Which line are you on? I have done some prelim investigating and see that there's an "at your leisure" hop on/hop off island tour which sounds like it could be good. Otherwise not sure what we're doing yet. I'll keep looking back here though and crashing the thread to see what you find out

in june we were on the Fantasy and stopped at Grand Turk. we did not know that Carnival had built a cruise center there. we booked a tram excursion that took us to the beach about half a mile away but we did not know we could have taken a cab for alot less or just stay at the cruise center. they had a Margaritville, that we found was free! there was a beach, a pool with a DJ, and a restaurant if you did not want to go back to the ship to eat. there were also a few shops.

I know that I am a little late, but here is my review.

My dh & bil did the 'Ultimate Snorkeling', while myself
and sil laid out at the beach and did a little shopping.
The guys loved there first time at snorkeling.
My dh seen a barracuda! He thought it was great.
They tried to get some good photos, but it just didn't pan out.
After they returned, we head to Margaritaville!
Now they can make a margartia! We had a
feeeeeeew drinks and sat by/in the pool. Watched
alot of funny people! Would love to go here again.

Diving, snorkeling and getting taken to the cleaners at Margaritaville. Learn to dive before you go as this is a very hot diving spot.
