Anyone heard anything about Grand Turk, Jack and family and friends??
Port is closed.
My heart goes out to all affected by Maria.
I hope they are safe.

On a certain social media site, Jack's Shack reported all they got was heavy wind & rain from Maria. All are safe. Hoping to be back up & running soon.

Flights into /out of Grand Turk were all cancelled yesterday, but those scheduled for today were still listed as active. From what I have heard, the damage was minimal, and they expected the island to be back into full operation within a few days.

The western eyewall passed over GT. So they missed the be ad Eastern eyewall. Not to say things weren't bad, just not as bad as be StJohn and Puerto Rico. Hoping all comes back over time and beaches weren't washed be away.

We're supposed to be there on Oct. 16th along with another ship. Hoping we will still be able to go and help their economy.

I'm not seeing anything. None of the enews sites I know for GT have posted any news even about Irma's aftermath. Jack's isn't listing any new on the main website, but on FB last Friday someone posted that there's no internet but that Janet had said everyone was okay. I think they all headed back stateside and haven't been back to the island yet. Port's webcam appears stuck from back at the end of August.

Just got the email from Carnival today. Our Oct 14th sailing (as well as the Oct 28th sailing) will not be going to Grand Turk as originally planned, but to Freeport Bahamas instead.
I am sad to be missing Grand Turk, but thats just a reason to cruise again in the future- I'll make it there someday!
