I would love a Southern Caribbean out of Port Canaveral (and itineraries available when the kids are out of school). We sailed on the Carnival Dream a couple of years ago - it is a beautiful ship, not as flashy as some of the other Carnival ships.

I would love to visit Grand Turk. Why dont more cruise ships go there? It seems only Carnival and Princess do unless I am missing it on the other lines? I have priced out to stay at the Beaches in Turks and Caicos and it definitely isnt cheap when including airfare for our family. It would be great if Disney could stop there.

I tried to post from my phone and it didn't seem to go through.
The all-inclusive is what makes it expensive.
This is where we stayed, and it was so quiet and private....but only a few minutes drive to the big beach, if we wanted to leave our private one.

We had the entire top floor, another family had the bottom floor, and we never even knew they were there the whole time. And it has a pool. too!

We visited Grand Turk on RCCL Freedom OTS out of Port Canaveral. Saw sea turtles. Beach at the dock was rocky, though, needed water shoes.

I completely agree that DCL needs some new itineraries. St Thomas, Nassau and St Maartin get boring very quickly...
DH and I have no intentions of cruising DCL again after our cruise in 2 weeks, and it is solely because the itineraries are boring. I'm pretty sure that isn't what they want from people who cruise once or twice a year with young children.

I like to snorkel and Grand Turk had great snorkeling areas. We were there on a Princess Cruise 3 years ago.

Carnival built the port that is currently used. Here's an article about it:

We love CC and would be thrilled with more double dips on the Dream!

Love those itineraries! And out of PC, too! No need to fly for us!

I've said I really don't want to cruise Carnival, but some of our close friends have cruised on Carnival Dream several time and thet love it. We are already cruising on Princess in April mostly because of the stop in Grand Turk. I'd much rather be on a Disney ship, but I really do care where the ship I'm on is going, and I really like those Carnival itineraries.

As the OP mentioned, I sure hope that Disney is listening!
