  1. She's also showing up in LA port scheduales
  2. Currently, the bid system uses a slide bar, everything ends in 0 or 5, there is no option to make it anything else.
  3. We are in our 60s and LOVE sailing with Virgin.
  4. I just made my first first-mate booking yesterday for a last-minute sailing to see a crew member before the ship repositions to Europe. This will be the first time I won't be boarding with DBE. No dining times currently available, and a 4:15 boarding time. It will be a learning experience for sure. lol.
  5. They expanded the number of members a while ago.
  6. In this case it seems that the port intensive itinerary may have been too much for most folks. We've been avoiding Mediterranean sailings for this very reason. I'd much rather relax,and enjoy the casino, shops and services on-board in air-conditioned comfort than get hot & sweaty while navigating crowded cobblestone streets filled with pickpockets and souvenir shops. Sea days are delightful.
  7. I wonder if the fact that I'm born and raised in DC has anything to do about it. 🤣
  8. The feedback was that sailors wanted more time at sea, not another port.
  9. They clearly stated that the change was based on past-passenger feedback/preference. Anything is else pure conjecture by someone who clearly hates the brand for reasons unknown.
  10. It's very common for itineraries to be changed. Every cruise line has a clause in their terms stating they can change an itinerary for any reason. Enjoy your cruise.
  11. The terms of your booking state that they can change itineraries for any reason. Every cruise line has this in their terms. Don't let this keep you from enjoying your cruise!
  12. We are staying at the Praktik Vino this fall
  13. This happens when your agent,or the agency they work for has you booked into a "circle" (group booking) https://www.virginvoyages.com/firstmatesahoy/latestnews/circles-group-bookings
  14. Information = money. That's why I never take a survey unless they pay me.
  15. You can bring 2 bottles of wine onboard when you first embark. Any bottles brought on in other ports will be collected upon re-boarding and delivered to your cabin on the last night of your cruise.
  16. We try to cruise once every 200 days, usually late Feb-early April, and then again in October-November
  17. If Virgin is saying it's your agent's fault, you should be asking your agent why this happened.
  18. Time to talk to your agent, and have them deal with it.
  19. No, but the lines are nowhere nearly as long as those at the MDR on other cruise lines, and they move fairly quickly.
  20. If you booked with a travel agent, call them and see if they can book some dining for you.
  21. You should have been on the Delta flight from ATL to San Juan today. Sir Richard came on board and gave everyone a free cruise on the Resilient when she starts sailing out of San Juan later this year.
  22. I believe only a certain level of agent gets the extra $100 per booking. Maybe your agent lost their status.
