Reservations (per Marlene with VV)

  • Shore excursions are available to see and book now - have you booked any?
  • Restaurant and entertainment reservations will open within the next couple of weeks (I don't remember exactly)
  • Spa, fitness class, and tattoo reservations are only available onboard

Thanks for this info!  How will we know when and how we can book restaurants and entertainment? 

I have received no info at all from Virgin other than the original email that says I am booked

You can book restaurants on the APP beginning 45 days out.

I’ve been trying for the last few days, as there’s now only 42 days left til boarding. 
but “no bookings needed”, and it won’t let me make any reservations. 
What have you seen? Do you have any advice?

I'm getting the same message. I've seen conflicting info: 1. That Virgin won't let us book restaurants until we get onboard for the first few cruises. 2. That once the ship gets to the U.S., we will be able to book. 3. That the kinks in the app are being worked on and once they get that worked out, we'll be able to book restaurants. 🙂

A rep explained the delay last week.... if I understood her correctly, it's because the app can only link to one "master calendar" at a time.... they need the UK Summer Sailings to end so they can flick a switch and allow the app to interface with the restaurant calendar for our sailings..... this issue will obviously only affect the first few sailings.... and then those booked on later sailings will get access at 45 days, as promised.

 

I do wonder if they can make reservations by phone in the meantime.... I'm travelling alone so I'm not too picky about when/where.... so I won't bother trying that myself.

 

I trust that, in the end, we'll all be happy and well-fed. 🙂

Yeah, I'm not overly concerned. I figure I'll make reservations when I can - whether beforehand or onboard - or do walk-in dining. The ship shouldn't be at full capacity. I've never starved on a cruise.

Finally joining the roll call.  Wife and I will head to MIA a few days early.
We have a 2:30 boarding time.  😞    
Booked the pyramid for Mexico.  Booked Scuba for the Island.
Got our "bar tab".  And will bring 2 bottles of wine as allowed.

Looking forward to this new product.
LOVE the no kids.   And REALLY love full vaxed ship.

How do you have a boarding time?  Is this something we need to book?  I have received no info on anything from Virgin.

Someone posted in another thread that VV won't be doing Covid testing at the port despite the app consistently saying it would be. Has anyone else heard this?
