  1. Extra Virgin, Pink Agave, and Razzle Dazzle have bar areas with seating and we've had mixed success with eating at the bar when the dining room was otherwise full.
  2. Booked last night and it was fine, went to look at shore excursions this morning and just crashed, tonight seems to be fine. I might start another thread, but is it me or is the ability to purchase shore excursions on the website new?
  3. Not sure if I'm allowed to say this out loud, but any chance you're part of the Signature Travel Network? They have negotiated early access for agents.
  4. Shake for Champagnes generally works, although delivery time can vary greatly. We've had quick 10 minute arrivals and close to an hour. If you qualify for a free bottle it will show up on your account for a day or two, make sure that it is actually removed before your cruise ends!
  5. That's the outside one, the one in the stairwell is different.
  6. I know for sure there are 2 gender neutral restrooms that are not single stall - at the very back of the Galley on 15 and by Sun Club Cafe on 16. The vast majority are gendered except for the non-gendered accessible single seaters.
  7. If you're concerned about demographics, this isn't the cruise line for you.
  8. Back in the day (Oct 2021), the ramen place was open late night, like you I wish they would bring it back. I think the burger bar is now the late night option.
  9. You can pay for same day return as well, I don't recall what the price was though.
  10. When we sailed forever ago (Oct 2021) with the OG crazy good MNVV (RIP) the limit was 4 per person. I'm not sure I realized that limit had changed or why anyone would reasonably need more than that - we weren't able to use the 8 we had in 2 years.
  11. What are they cutting back on? We have an upcoming sailing and would like to know in advance if there any changes from our voyages last year.
  12. It must be a different style of hammock to fit since it would already be tight on the current balconies and these balconies will be smaller.
  13. That guy is super annoying, ended up asking YouTube to not show me his videos anymore. There has always been speculation that VV will go public or sell so I don't think this would be earth shattering if true. Maybe something will be announced on the 1st that he knows about or maybe he's just hedging his bets in case they announce a sale this week?
  14. Afternoon Tea has come off our bar tab on previous voyages.
  15. Where did you see it is supported? Would like to be able to work on our next cruise and if they claim it works I want to hold them to it!
  16. My work VPN did not work (Cisco AnyConnect) and when I asked about it they said they don't support VPN. My personal VPN did work though (Tailscale). I suspect it is related to whether you can go over https vs more traditional methods like IPsec. When I did get connected it broke the app, which makes sense since it probably needs to talk to the ship instead of the internet while onboard.
  17. Razzle Dazzle books all dining when you are first boarding, after that book at the restaurant host stand or in app. Sailor services does not make dining reservations but they may message a restaurant for you. Brunch and breakfast are bookable prior to boarding now.
  18. This is in fact why they go to Turkey, to avoid taxes. When we sailed last year there were no taxes charged while in Bodrum.
  19. If you status matched in 2023 then you have DBE through 2025.
  20. Port charge refunds should definitely be cash, that's not right to make it loot. I do wonder if the French are being problematic with environmental requirements. That seems to be a thing in a few countries lately and countries that Virgin is now avoiding.
  21. We haven't done a GTY on Virgin, however from other threads it appears to be a day or two before sailing.
  22. One of their main tech suppliers was put out of business by Carnival so that might explain the slowness to update/fix.
  23. You can request a steamer from your cabin host, I don't recall the brand but it worked fine.
  24. 6 total hot tubs if you include Richard's rooftop. Two on 16 aft, 2 on 15 midship, 2 on 16 forward (Richard's). There's also the thimble sized one at the spa on 5
  25. I know Grof Walk is $50, I think the others are similar maybe slightly less.
