Public restroom facilities at the Tortola Pier Park are the best in the Caribbean, according to representatives from the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association.
“A lot of people judge where they are by the bathrooms … I’ve got to tell you (the BVI) — you’ve got the Rolls Royce of bathrooms right there in the Pier Park,” said Russell Daya, an executive director for the Disney Fantasy cruise ship.
“I’d even go as far as to say Bentley as well … You’ve knocked it out of the park for the number-one bathrooms in the Caribbean”.
Rolls Royce and Bentley are two of the top luxury motor vehicles on the planet.
Daya made the comparison while speaking this week at a media conference at The Moorings. The conference was about discussing the BVI’s readiness to accept major cruise lines back into the territory.
While concurring with Daya’s conclusion about the quality of local public bathrooms for visitors, another Disney Cruise Line representative said, overall, the Pier Park is also on par with facilities in first-world countries.
“Our guests are very satisfied with your port … It’s compared to one of the ones in Europe that have had one of the top ratings; and that is something you should be very proud of as an island, honestly.”
Disney has not decided when it will resume calls to the territory. It said the BVI has more preparations to make in order to accept large cruise ships. However, following their assessment this week, Disney said the territory’s current progress is ‘encouraging’.
In the meantime, representatives from the Norwegian Cruise Line said they are confident they will return to the territory by October.
