Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Nov. 25, 2015: Grand Turk Island

cruise 4 - 1One of the great advantages of taking a cruise is the opportunity to see so many ports-of-call. On a recent Carnival Fantasy Cruise, I was able to tour Grand Turk Island and visit some of its historic attractions.


We first stopped at the 1852 Grand Turk Lighthouse.  At 60 feet tall, the lighthouse overlooks North Creek and was built to alert seafarers of the shallow reef.













 Other stops included St. Mary's Anglican Pro-Cathedral Church built in 1899 and the Turks & Caicos National Museum, housed in an 1800’s home on Front Street.

There are many ways to enjoy time at the ports-of-call and having these choices allows passengers the opportunity to shape their experiences to fit their interests. My interest? History!
