  1. First off, being an optimist, I support Richard in all he's doing and can't imagine being thrown for this loop. I've been excited for his Virgin Group since the day they announced and blindly put my early deposit down knowing they would do it right. I called VV and was offered a $44 discount (twice the solo amount?) and was also given the July 10th deadline to make my decision. Feels like I bit into a lemon with the $44 offer - especially when [initially] reading the email from Tom, I felt "Well, at least the Virgin Group and VV team will make it right." While on the call, I asked why the same cruise was less than half the price later in the year and was told that my cruise was the inaugural cruise and the other times were not as popular. I mentioned that the whole Terrace category had cabins available online "right now" (and still does two days later) and asked if there will be anything special about the inaugural cruise. The answer I received was lack luster to say the least. VV has not said anything nor published anything about this first out sailing but maybe they could, if not should, do so. I need something to get excited about before I have to make my decision next month.
  2. New itinerary for "previously Cuba" April 1-5 voyage is out via email: Miami (7p departure), Key West (8a-7p), Beach Club at Bimini (10a-11:59p), day at sea, Miami (6:30a arrival). Pretty disappointed in that in being a early deposit (12/2017) supporter in faith, it looks as though my cabin discount is only fifty dollar difference over those booking today. I will probably call today to see if I am missing something...?

  4. Just curious and I am just guessing as I don't know the regulations but would it not work to re-port the ship to another country's Caribbean or Bahamas port? Seems as though there would be time for VV to make those arrangements and salvage at least some of the Cuba voyages. I mean, isn't it only US based ships, not Americans, that can't go to Cuba? We could be chartered by VV on Virgin Atlantic and depart from the new port. Maybe Miami would feel the loss and go to bat to remove the new restriction... surely there is already some sort of movement in that direction with the pending loss of tourist dollars?
  5. Still wondering if this Cuba thing has anything to do with my booking an April Fools day departure and my cabin being on the 13th floor. ☺️ Looking forward to some news this coming week...
