Ruby Princess 2013: Day 6 – Grand Turks

Grand Turks

We didn’t arrive at Grand Turks until later in the afternoon. We spent the morning at an outlet sale and another art auction. Since we had time we also went to the dining room for a fancy meal. I had calamari, gazpacho, lamb and a cherry trifle for dessert.

When we arrived at Grand Turks around 1. I totally get why people can spend a week here just relaxing.

My sister wanted to go shopping so her and mom stayed in the tourist area while me and dad went exploring. We took a 5 minute taxi to Governor’s Beach. It was far more quiet than the area by the boat docks. Though it was around 29 degrees on the island, it was the perfect temperature when you immersed yourself in water.

We spent some time looking for fancy rocks and sea shells as well as looking at moss and coral reef.

When it was time to head back to the ship, we were starving. For dinner I had the shrimp cocktail, a interesting goat cheese souffle, a gingery orange sorbet (before the main to cleanse the pallet), seared sea scallops and a trio of apple crumble, chocolate mousse and raspberry tart thing for dessert.

After dinner entertainment included comedy from Miguel Washington in the Princess Theater and a new intimate performance from David Cats in one of the lounges.

Then we fell asleep watching the movie Premium Rush on the top deck of the ship.
