Christmas cruise port info

Recommended Posts

We are looking into taking the HAL Christmas cruise on the Nieuw Statendam.  It stops at Grand Turk on Christmas Day. Will anything in port be open?  The day after we’ll be in San Juan—will there be any closures that day?  Thanks.

I would expect most things to be open in Grand Turk, especially in the cruise center.

Grand Turk is a port that was developed by Carnival Corporation to make money.

 

Everything on the island was refurbish by Carnival to provide tourist excursions  and to profit share with the Turks and Caicos government and the local businesses that bought into the immediate pier area.

 

I don't think Carnival Corp will let Christmas stand in the way of squeezing every penny out of the passengers.

I was on this year's Christmas cruise on NA and we were in Grand Turk on Christmas day. Most of the cruise center shops were open but a handful were closed. The weather wasn't great (on/off rain and wind) and there were still a ton of people in the pool in the port area. It wasn't very festive though, I can't recall seeing decorations or feeling like it was Christmas day.
