PROVIDENCIALES, Turks & Caicos Islands (AP) — The tourist board in the Turks & Caicos Islands says the cruise terminal on Grand Turk has temporarily closed.
Cruise lines have cancelled port calls to Grand Turk after passengers reported experiencing gastrointestinal illnesses there during recent visits.
In a Tuesday statement, the British territory's tourist board makes no mention of why or when the nearly 18-acre Grand Turk Cruise Center closed. But Board Director Ralph Higgs says all relevant local authorities and stakeholders are trying to address the problem and they hope to reopen the terminal quickly.
The general manager of the Grand Turk Cruise Center declined comment, referring all calls to Carnival Corp., which opened the terminal in 2006.
A Carnival spokesman said he was preparing to issue a statement later.
