Grand Turk Margaritaville Suffers Minimal Damage from Ike

September 20th, 2008

The Margaritaville on Grand Turk in the Turks & Caicos, which opened in 2006, only suffered minimal damage from Hurricane Ike, according to the Caribbean Net News:

According to a Carnival press release, an engineering survey confirmed that no damage was sustained to the cruise ship pier, which can accommodate up to two ships at one time, while minimal damage occurred to the facility’s retail and restaurant complex.

“We believe we can complete repairs to the cruise centre within a 30-day period and bring cruise ships back to Grand Turk,” said Giora Israel, Carnival’s vice president of strategic planning and port development. “We will be able to provide many of the wonderful, beach, snorkeling and water sports experiences that Grand Turk is famous for, along with the oversized pool and food and shopping opportunities at the cruise center, including the extremely popular Margaritaville restaurant.”
