Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

You won't be disappointed with the staff. They all seem very happy and willing to help despite the long hours they all work. The ship is very clean. The food is all delicious. We had the dining package. All the food was very good. Le Bistro was our least favorite and it is touted as the best. To each his own. The food in La Cucina  is just OK.  Pizza on board needs some work, we are NY/NJ pizza lovers. No other pizza comes close. Pizza on board is not pizza.  We stayed in a mini suite on the 11th floor. It should be a discounted room, as it was very noisey due to waste plumbing. If you are staying in room 11020 take ear plugs. Tortola is not really ready for cruise ships. No real shopping for the shoppers and not enough time to go to the beach and enjoy it. Maybe in 5-10 years. Enjoy the Gem.

Very noisy early in the morning and late at night. Take ear plugs. Under waste plumbing sounds like a toilet flushing every 10-20 seconds. We called the staff and they said we are the only people that have complained about the noise. I can only say maybe other travelers are not in the room at those times.


Ha Ha Don't eat the pizza
