Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos Islands

This was our first trip to Grand Turk.  Carnival developed this spot several years ago and created a beach.  The beach
was nice but the reef has died in front of the beach. They give you free chairs and clamshells to provide shade.  We saw
octupus and photographed one changing color before it dove into its hole. Next time we will snorkle on the other side of the
cruise pier, where we saw large parrot fish looking from the pier, while getting back onboard.  Water clarity is excellent here.

We spoke to a woman on the Seven Seas Mariner, who said that the high price of her cruise was not worth it compared to ours,
because it includes all-you-can drink alcohol, and if you don't drink much, it is a rip-off.  Regent is a luxury line vs 
Oceania, which is the top-rated premium line.

Good beach right at the ship.  Good views too
