  1. Not better results, necessarily. But certainly the error message should be a hip purplish color instead of red, and perhaps have a groovy graphic to go with it!
  2. Not sure how the cape will work out on deck...for the wearer or the people nearby.
  3. The cabin stewards will, by default, do it for you. However, to add some Branson/Virgin magic, there is a passenger contest on the last day of the cruise to see which passenger can convert and then reconvert the beds the fastest. It is recommended that passengers do this themselves every day of the cruise so that they are well practiced and capable of seriously competing for the soon to be highly desired Champion Cabin Bed Award. Imagine the pride you will have showing off that award!
  4. Virgin is running a contest, and this is in the rules: Grand Prize consists of one (1) Virgin Voyages Caribbean Voyage for winner and one (1) Guest consisting of not less than 05 days/ 04 nights double occupancy stateroom accommodations on a vessel that travels to the Western Caribbean; and two (2) micro nautical tattoos at Squid Ink while on board. The approximate retail value (“ARV”) of the Grand Prize will not exceed $3,000 USD/$3,889.38 (CAD).
  5. Yes, I got an email regarding this. Squid Ink. There is a drawing for a free voyage for two including a micro tattoo from Squid Ink. I wonder if I can enter but refuse the tattoo if I win? Or if there is a requirement that the tattoo be the Virgin logo? And, there is going to be an event at Soho Ink in Manhattan--free tattoo for the first 100 people and a chance to win a voyage. The more I hear, the more I think I should just get my deposit back. Nothing wrong with any of it, probably just not my cup of tea.
  6. Wow! It's hard to see where the one looking into the tender has any view at all! The occupants of that room would be the people in the ship actually hoping that the tenders are used, just so they have a view for a few hours. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Forums mobile app
  7. I really thought the responses would all be: get a balcony. While I don't care about a balcony for most cruises, we did enjoy our balcony on our Alaska cruise. I'd probably go for the balcony for Alaska again, but I don't know. Maybe if I get around to cruising the Panama Canal, that might be another balcony cruise. All that being said, the best views are on the deck. This is particularly true any time a panarama is best--like at the glaciers. Also heard stories at dinner about wildlife views our table mates saw from the deck that we missed from our balcony. (We spent time in both places.) If it's an either/or decision, I'm also in the use your money for excursions camp. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Forums mobile app
  8. This is interesting to me as I checked our printout slipped under our door on the last day, and I verified that everything on there was correct and everything that should be in there was. When the credit card charge came through, it was for more ($35?) than the statement said. I didn't bother to check into it, and was not even sure how I would since I was off the ship. I figured it would probably turn out to be an accurate charge anyway. But, if this is something that is happening regularly, maybe I should have checked. Is there any way to easily get the details of the charges a month and a half after the cruise? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Forums mobile app
