Grand Turk has some really big sanitation issues these days resulting in the cruise terminal being closed and all cruise ships not calling on Grand Turk with lots of itinerary changes - if you are interested into this topic, see this Norovirus article about illness (virus) outbreaks on cruise ships reported by CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and what ships will not visit Grand Turk as previously scheduled.

You're right. Carnival was the first line to make a connection between a significant increase in gastrointestinal cases after stops at Grand Turk by several of their ships. They've canceled stops for the past three weeks, I believe. Extensive testing has not located a source. Last I heard, they were considering scheduling stops but haven't yet.
