    Poor old Richard, he has lost his Virgin Trains in the UK, Virgin Atlantic airline in Australia and now it looks like his Virgin Atlantic airline in the UK is going. Given that Virgin Voyages has not even had one paying guest on it yet, how long can that enterprise survive?  

     Bain Capital has a lot invested so hopefully they can keep it afloat.

    I have a feeling there will be cruises in February (maybe even January) but the question is at what capacity and with what precautions?? Personally, I'd LOVE to sail on a half full ship but not if there will be crazy precautions in place. And to that end if cruises are only sailing at say 50% capacity how do they decide who gets to go and who doesn't?  We have 2 JS's booked that now cost almost triple what we paid.....I suspect Royal would love for us to cancel (won't happen) so they can have the higher fares sailing. 

     

    If ours sails we will be on it!

    We were targeted by someone on our last cruise. We were in a suite and every time we walked in the lounge he asked to see our cards. When we were being escorted off the ship the last day he asked to see them again to make sure we were in the right place. He was lucky I was able to ignore him. Once we were off the ship and our Uber arrived he and his wife jumped right in. I quickly pointed out the problem to the Uber driver and they had to get out. He very nicely asked me if they could share the Uber and drop them at the airport. His whole attitude changed once he was off the ship. My answer was a firm no. Maybe if we were going in that direction and our car wasn't full I could have been guilted into it but it was sweet revenge.

    Wait a second,  this was a guest asking to see your cards?  Why the heck didn't you tell him to mind his own business?

     

    He was a guest and he caught me off guard the first time he asked. After that we told him it was none of his business but that didn't stop him from asking.

    My husband and I were mistreated in the CL lounge by a group of D+ and Pinnacles. We purchased a suite and were told by a couple members of this group that we should go to the DL. We gave no indication of our level. It is interactions like this that place bias on levels and stateroom categories.

    It looks like Polly is suggesting a new future for CL/SL and how it could affect Suite passengers in future if only Loyalty Lounges were available.

     

    I was commenting on the UDP and the DP. If those perks are made available to all suite guests it would be near impossible for others to get into the specialty restaurants. Would coastal kitchen only be available to suites and not pinnacles? Too many possibilities so I'm glad that I don't have to make the decision because there will be upset people.

    Suite guests have the DP and unlimited Speciality restaurant access.

    D+ and Pinnacles have the new improved Loyalty Lounge which replaces the Concierge/Suite Lounge. 

    Diamonds continue with 3 drink vouchers which roll over if any unused any day to a maximum of 21 per week.💓👜

    Polly.

     

    Only Star class suites get those perks.

    Yes & only once. Not worth it compared to MSC & NCL. I prefer YC over Haven. Both YC & Haven have butlers, private pools & spas with grill, restaurant & large sun deck. YC has the best lounges with panoramic views, piano player & violinist nightly, drinks, cocktails & specially coffee (made fresh for you & brought to you not the coffee machines you use to make your own that RCL have in their lounges). You can get specialty coffees & cocktails anywhere on ship 24/7. Entrance into their thermo suite included (dry hot salt room, thassalotherapy pool, the snow room, etc.)  RCL doesn’t come close to their offerings. 

     

     

    Thanks for the info! Hopefully we can try it soon.

    I gave up on cruising a while ago because of all the uncertainty and vowed not to book anything until the ships start sailing.  Well, that lasted a month until I saw a really good deal on a Sky Loft on Quantum in Alaska. 😄 Deals do exist.

     

    We had 3 booked that were price protected when we L&S.  We went from Oasis to Symphony and Harmony. The price difference between the ships is a lot. I think we got a deal.
