  1. If you had your own VV account and then booked through a TA, it's possible a second account was created for you using the same email address. When that happens, their system can't handle it and requires some backend IT adjustments to resolve.  But like others said, if you book through a TA, your first and only call should be to your TA do have it sorted out.

    My least favorite part would be the bathroom. In those regular sea terrace cabins, the bathroom is very small. Also, I wish with the late night food options, something other than breakfast was offered. 
    Favorite thing would be sailing at 50%. VV, nor I have anything control over that, but a ship under capacity now, after the restart, is a special thing. No waiting! 

    there's also pizza until about 1:30 or 2am and secret duck ramen 10:30pm-12am at the galley.

    Reaching critical mass here... I've got to leave soon for the tequila class. Who knows what it'll be like when that's over...




    Still has a long way to go, there's room for another 15-20 people in the deep end alone, and probably another 15-20 in the shallow end!

    The party (ie the DJ is on) is about 90 minutes I think but the free sparkling wine is only one hour. 

    I think the sparkling wine might only be half an hour.  Captain usually makes an announcement about it, that’s the only announcement of the whole trip pretty much. Think it’s 6-6:30 for normal sailors on the pool deck.

    Hmmm....We had selected a 10:45 disembarkation time on line for our October 30 return.  About 10:15 and announcement came that everyone had to be off the ship by 10:30....no explanation of the discrepency.  So we hurried to finish breakfast, grabbed carry ons from the cabin and exited.  We had the usual elevator wait and after several cycles did the "ride up to go down.  There was a brief wait at the gangway.

    Customs DID have facial recognition; in fact, it was the first time I'd seen that system.  If went quite quickly.  The wait for an Uber was about 7-8 minutes. I'm guessing that maybe we were some of the last off and therefore missed most of the crowds.  

    Pretty sure they don't have facial recognition, they have cameras, but not the system where you just walk by without handing over your passport and answering any questions that the border patrol may have for you.

  6. they typically stock 5 half bottles of rum, vodka, gin, bourbon, tequila or whiskey, 4 half bottles of wine and 4 beers.  The latest process is that rockstar agents ask you at boarding for any modifications and they will only swap an existing item for another mini bar item and only if you request on the first day (more rum instead of another item etc). 

  7. Does anyone have any idea how VV comes up with their fare value discounts when using these two promotions together? If you look at the website total fare including taxes, shouldn't it just be that value minus the $300 MNV discount and then minus the $300 MNV deposit that was already paid???  I'm pretty good at math, and I can't figure out how they come to their quoted price.  


    The quoted price they have me booked at is $225.50 MORE than what I've noted above.

    I'll have to disagree with this statement. I thoroughly enjoyed what was offered, it was fresh, tasty, and well prepared. Having said that the offerings are very limited and have a very narrow appeal. If they are going to offer a limited menu I think there needs it be at least one or two choices that are a little more basic, such as a burger, hot dog, or grilled chicken. 

    I think the pulled pork is their version of a basic option.

  9. I don't think anything is every "guaranteed" when it comes to restaurant reservations, but I believe what you are describing is actually open to anyone on the ship, you can make reservations in person at a restaurant same day you are already holding reservation for another.  We definitely did that as regular rockstars, but don't think that status had anything to do with it.
