Police, Customs and Environmental Health officials will meet the ship on arrival.  The Turks & Caicos Islands’ Chief Medical Officer has provided COVID-19 health guidance to the ship, and the ship has its own medical team which has been monitoring the ship’s personnel on a regular basis.

Some crew members will be able to disembark. They will not be leaving the Cruise Centre property, except to utilize the nearby beach area adjacent the pier.

The Cruise Centre facilities are closed and will not be available to the ship’s company. To ensure there is absolutely no risk, we ask that members of the public do not interact with the ship’s company.
