Why is my code not being accepted despite working fine?

Code seems to run fine and does what the exercise tells me to do but
Codeacademy says "Oops, try again. Did you remember to print out turn + 1 each turn?" No errors are encountered by the interpreter. I don't understand why it's not accepting my code.

This is what should be in the interpreter (and is):

Let's play Battleship!
O O O O O
O O O O O
O O O O O
O O O O O
O O O O O
1
3
('Turn', 1)
Guess Row: 3
Guess Col: 2
You missed my battleship!
('Turn', 2)
Guess Row: 3
Guess Col: 4
You missed my battleship!
('Turn', 3)
Guess Row: 1
Guess Col: 1
You missed my battleship!
('Turn', 4)
Guess Row: 3
Guess Col: 2
You guessed that one already.
O O O O O
O X O O O
O O O O O
O O X O X
O O O O O
None


from random import randint

board = []

for x in range(5):
    board.append(["O"] * 5)

def print_board(board):
    for row in board:
        print " ".join(row)

print "Let's play Battleship!"
print_board(board)

def random_row(board):
    return randint(0, len(board) - 1)

def random_col(board):
    return randint(0, len(board[0]) - 1)

ship_row = random_row(board)
ship_col = random_col(board)
print ship_row
print ship_col

# Everything from here on should go in your for loop!
# Be sure to indent four spaces!
turn = 0
for i in range(1,5):
    turn = turn + 1
    print("Turn", turn)
    guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
    guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))
    if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
        print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
    else:
        if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > 4) or (guess_col < 0
        or guess_col > 4):
            print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
        elif(board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X"):
            print "You guessed that one already."
        else:
            print "You missed my battleship!"
            board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
print_board(board)

It would make sense if the iterator variable is turn. It is in the range(0,5), so will start at 0

for turn in range(5):
    print turn + 1

Now it will print 1 for the first, 2 for the second, and so on. For simplicity, do not add any more text to that statement. Just use it in the stripped down form shown above.
