Hello gss.

Assuming your port is Grand Turk, take a look at the link for shore excursions. It is a developing port and they say that there will be more added. We will be there in November.

Enjoy your cruise and come back and let us know what you thought of the port and what you did. In the link, click on shore excursions to see what is available.

Grand Turk

I've been to Grand Turk once, we were the second ship to dock at the new port facility there. I did the helmet dive and had a lot of fun.

We were there the same time last year. It was pretty humid - we took a taxi into the town to do some exploring and it was too humid for us desert rats. There's not much there - a small museum which was $10pp - so we skipped it. The cab was $5 each to town and $5 each to get back to the pier. There's a Margarittaville bar & restaurant with a pool at the pier and some shops. There is a beach right at the pier, and another beach a few miles up the shore which is offered with an excursion. Tablemates did the bus tour and said it was interesting, but . . . the island is small, not yet developed and most things are geared to water activities. Margarittaville was packed with folks from the ship, the beach was quiet. If your wife isn't up to snorkeling or diving - the bus ride might be the ticket...

Is there any shelter available on the beach? I need an area or enclosure so my wife can rest in the shade from time to time

I had to get my pictures out - - - we took a shot from the ship looking back to the pier. It looks like there are some "clam shell" shelters on the beach, scattered among the loung chairs. There is shade at the pool at Margaritaville. Check with either the excursions desk or the front desk to see what the status of the shelters on the beach is... whether they are rented or just there for the choosin'.
gss - we met a lot of folks from the Carolinas, Georgia & Florida on our cruise - perfect location for being able to "hop a ship". Being landlocked on the west coast really limits our ability to sail as often as we would like. This was a really nice cruise -

After we get all our resrvation info I'll see if we can book a clamshell in advance. Both of us are looking forward to a great time

Gss That intinerary on the Zuiderdam is a fantastic one. I'm going to hopefully book this one soon. We really love Half Moon Cay, you're going to love it. They also have Clam Shells there for rent through HAL. Haven't been to Turks and Caicos yet.
