  1. No, you watch a video on your cabin TV and then report to your muster station for a 2-3 minute demonstration on how to put on your life jacket.
  2. Some sort of perks like the extra bar tab yes, but not necessarily DBE.
  3. It's all going to depend on things like the department they're in, seniority, and if they're ending they're contract at disembarkation.
  4. I don't believe DBE was ever meant to be a permanent offering for Sea Blazers or Sea Rovers. There was always an expiration date. Sure it's been extended a few times, but it's always been there.
  5. It's worth the effort. It's the first show produced at sea that is now touring on land! https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/2024/02/13/virgin-voyages-show-sea-to-land/72522950007/
  6. The artist usually gives the winners two times to choose from. However on our Transtlantic for whatever reason, we all painted our horses at the same time. I can't remember if we had a choice, of if everyone just ended up choosing the same time. Either way, it's a fun time to meet new people and share some bubbles and laughs. These are our seahorses from the two times we participated. Bubbles (left) and Mrs.Ed (right) Neither won their race. We suspected that Bubbles was drugged prior to the event, but the ship's doctor refused to investigate. 🤣
  7. Everything is higher this year. You can't book at last year's price. We sailed in October of 2022, and the price is $800 higher for the same sailing this October.
  8. On the last Transatlantic, the range was $250 - $400
  9. You attend the seahorse auction,which will be the first date, Only 6 seahorses are auctioned off.
  10. That's why I mentioned the Brilliant being the only ship that can get through the canal.
  11. Here's the LA port schedule for Spring 2025. Scarlet Lady is listed, but Brilliant is the only ship in the fleet that can make it through the Panama Canal. https://youtu.be/SF9feVMvQgk?si=Bu6TLscNsS1ESJ0G
  12. We take the Brightline train. First Class includes a ride within 5 miles of the station, and the port is less than 3 miles away.
  13. Don't sweat the app or your docs issue. It's probably in the process of being updated for the sailing.
  14. You should see the shirts someone is selling on Etsy. 🤣
  15. I'd be surprised if anyone gets loyalty points on comped cruises.
  16. The golden rule is, the quietest cabins have cabins above and below them.
  17. It should be noted, that the Splash of Romance Package is limited to how many packages they can sell per sailing, so at this late date, it MIGHT not be available.
  18. We show up around 1:00PM. DBE cannot be purchased. Here's the info from Virgin's site. https://www.virginvoyages.com/sailing-club Another good site for doing homework is VV Insider. https://vvinsider.com/
  19. Anyone with DBE gets to board after the Rockstars (suites), so ignore the time on the app. Boarding order is Rockstars, then DBE and SOR (Splash of Romance), then everyone with assigned times.
  20. I just told Pam, this is how I want to go….in the waters we love to sail in.
  21. That's the demographic they wanted, but in reality it skews older. The average age as reported by Virgin is 43.
