The Grand Turk Cruise Center features a purpose-built, two-berth cruise ship pier. There are no restrictions on length. and the depth alongside is 33 feet / 10 meters (MLW).

Unless you SCUBA there doesn't seem to be a whole lot to do here.
But this looks like my kind of hangout on Grand Turks -> The Local Village Bar and Restaurant

menu -> http://www.menugem.com/businesses/local ... restaurant

The currency used in the island is the US dollar and their spoken language is English.
Daylight savings time is observes and they are in the Eastern Time Zone.

In Turks and Caicos, they drive on the LEFT side of the road.

Public nudity is illegal all throughout the island.

which port was it that we had to tender in because the pier already had a ship but when we returned our ship was at the pier? maybe once at Roatan?

We tendered to the Private Island (Cayo Levantado, D.R.) on JC5...same year as Grand Turk.

I believe you are correct on Roatan, first year there we tendered in because another ship was still at the Pier, then piered out if memory serves me correctly

Hey Bill,
I believe we did have to tender at T&C on jamcruise 5. I remember you having to strongly negotiate with the ship's personel just to get us on the early tender off the boat. I also thought Margaritaville was right by where the tender drop off was. It had to be JC 3, 4 or 5 for the tender.
