Any Tortola word?

I think the first Tortola cruise went out last Saturday. I know they'll be back tomorrow, but just wondering whether we have heard anything from anyone on board? I can;t wait to see what dinner line up is, shows, etc!

Is it okay to mention Passporter here? According to their newsletter, they're on the Tortola trip right now. They have also posted some daily pictures. Hopefully they will do a very prompt trip report!!!

I know the website is www.passporter.com but I can't find the pictures. I'll keep looking because I'm interested in seeing the Tortola pics. If I find it I'll post back.

And they link to the Dis board so I would imagine its okay to post their name here.

Just back from our first DCL cruise and DCL's first cruise to Tortola. Our family of four was unanimous that Tortola was our favorite stop. We are beach people so we went to Brewers Bay to snorkel & play in the surf. It was gorgeous and had nice snorkeling. At the most there were 8 families on the beach. There were lounge chairs to rent for $5 and plenty of shade under the palm trees.

We had a great driver with a nice new van that even had seatbelts. When i find his card i will post his name. It was $7 p/p each way. We told him when we wanted to be picked back up and he actually showed up an hour ahead of time and told us to take our time. We finished up and then had a drink with the locals at the little outdoor bar/restaurant. All of the locals were very friendly. No one ever harrassed us to buy anything. On the drive back he stopped to let us take pictures - beautiful views. The drive over the island of course is harrowing. Some people we met didn't like Tortola because of the drive but i didn't think it was any worse than St. Thomas or St. John.

To go shopping you can either pay $4 for a cab or walk it. We walked it with our 2 kids, no problem, but there is a lot of traffic and you have to cross a street, but drivers do stop for you. Don't miss the spice shop, Sunny Caribbee.

I'll answer any questions anyone has.

Tracy
