  1. I'm always puzzled and somewhat amused by those who have a derogatory view of people who have or want tattoos and/or piercings. Where do they live and what are they afraid of? Do they really equate character with body art/adornment? I'm in my 50s and have an ear conch piercing, so I guess I'm a bad element lol. If I condemned everyone I know and interact with who has tattoos, piercings or both, I'd be losing out on knowing so many amazing people. And some of the most self-righteous, narcissistic people I've known are tattoo- and piercing-free. If I meet someone on our cruise who has visited the tattoo/piercing parlor, I'll be interested in seeing the results. I've been wanting a new ear piercing for awhile and might splurge while onboard, and I love seeing cool tattoo art. Guess I'm riff raff. Beware, fellow passengers ...
  2. We actually would keep the booking if Key West was subbed in, as we love that island and would enjoy revisiting some of our favorite non-tourist spots. Nassau -- no way. Not worth it to us.
  3. I tend to agree. I very much want to sail with VV, but what made us sign up the day sales opened to the general public was the Havana overnight. The Bahamas definitely wouldn't hold the same appeal. I would consider one of the other two itineraries, as we haven't been to either. But not if we had to jump to another sailing date. We like the cabin location we have now.
  4. The drama and judgement directed toward a ship that hasn't even sailed yet really amuses me. I'm far from a millennial or an orgy enthusiast (lmao that that particular accusation was even thrown out there) and I can't wait to sail the beautiful Scarlet Lady. Guess I'm a middle-age rebel lol.
  5. I think some people would like to go back to the days when people who book a lowly inside or window-only cabin would be confined to steerage lol.
  6. My husband and I sail Sept. 23, 2020, and we'll be 55 and 59 at the time. We'll be skewing the demographics for sure on our cruise lol.
  7. My husband and I are in our 50s and jumped at the chance to book on the Scarlett Lady. I love the concept of a mid-size, innovative ship, and going to Cuba has been a long-time goal. We might be the oldest people on our sailing, but I'm so looking forward to the trip regardless. If we're outcasts, we'll take our experience and move on. But in the meantime, I'm hoping to snag a reservation for the drag brunch ...
  8. Just saw on another thread that the ship will be "one giant orgy," it has no class and certain posters will never set foot on it. An old Billy Joel lyric is going through my head: "I'd rather laugh with the sinners than die with the saints. The sinners are MUCH more fun." All that pearl clutching is going to ruin those expensive necklaces 😅.
  9. Only on VV. Not on the respectable cruise lines
  10. Oh, and it's not just tattoos people are afraid of. It's VV's signature color of RED! It's so garish. How dare they?? Seriously, wth?
  11. Pearl-clutching outrage just made me lol. My confirmation booking email from VV arrived at 8:03 on Thursday morning, so I definitely bought what they're selling. Cuba has been on my bucket list, and to have a chance at that plus an innovative ship and concept: Yep, I'm in. And I'll also be online as soon as reservations open for dining on our cruise to grab 2 spots for that drag-queen brunch. Heck, I might even get a new ear piercing on board lol. We're booked for September 2020 and it seems so far away. If you go earlier, reports are mandatory! Oh wait, we're just stupid Fyre Festival wannabes ... we'll never actually sail. Silly us 😏
  12. Since I'm new to these boards, I've been browsing through some of the other cruise line threads, and the dismay that some cruisers of other lines are expressing about VV is actually kind of amusing. A tattoo parlour? Quelle horreur! Once they find out "that place" will also do piercings, they'll probably demand a revolt. It's OK, folks, I don't think the VV vibe will be contagious if your ship happens to pass the Scarlet Lady in the night. 😘
  13. I saw somewhere that there will be two drag-queen brunches per cruise. They also are supposed to have a champagne brunch in another restaurant. I would happily go to either -- or ideally both. But I'm guessing demand will be high.
