    I got the activation code ok but as it transpires there’s no availability for dates in September or October – I was too late to the game.

    Quick chat with the web chat suggests if they’re gone they’re gone and you can’t pay a cash difference to get into a larger cabin if there’s no availability in the smaller cabins.

    Anyone happen to have contrary datapoints to that before I request a points refund?

    @j-w, I inquired about upgrading my existing booking with cash.

    They said access key bookings cannot be upgraded that way. Only using the Level Upgrade bidding.

    If there’s no availability in Ltd View Sea Terrace or Sea Terrace then you won’t be able to book onto that cruise using the access key.

    It seems odd not taking some extra cash from paying customers but I guess they’re hoping to sell it at full rate…

    Thanks @stevenhp1987. I checked back and the whole of September opened up – must have been holding back some capacity.

    I will look into the Level Upgrade process! Thanks for the tip

    This happened to me on Saturday. No availability showing online for 2 Oct so called Miami call centre (via the UK number). Initially the agent advised there were no cabins available for free bookings on this date. She went away to check with a colleague before coming back to me and made the booking over the phone. Worth a shot – good luck.

    They keep opening up Guarenteed Cabins every now and then for my next cruise.

    I’m guessing they’re expecting to upgrade a few people who bid for upgrades so open up Guarenteed Cabins to fill the lower cabins up.

    Anyone know if you can retrospectively sign up for the loot?

    Hi John O how do I sign up for the sailor loot as I am on same cruise?

    If you’ve not yet booked you could use my link https://virg.in/o8xC

    If already booked, it can be done via chat.

    Question on the bidding for upgrades can you bid on more than one? Presumably then you would get the highest one you bid on and won?

    I’m doing the Spanish Obsession next Sunday if anyone is interested in trying to apply for retrospective credit?

    Im on this – will try and attach it now.

    Does anyone know if you can request twin beds for the standard Sea Terrace rooms?

    Good question, interested in the answer to this also.

    Likewise, has anyone successfully cancelled one these ‘Virgin Red’ cruises for a Points Refund or a Future Travel Credit? I may have purchased one too many…

    I think you probably just need name booking is under and from what I gather you can go on chat and ask to link. Happy to email you this or can email me at kmorrow70{at}Hotmail.com with referral link.

    Has anyone booked a transfer with VV to BCN airport?
    We’re back 2nd Oct but it appears sold out already.
    First time so assuming there’ll be loads of taxis at the port, can anyone confirm? Thx

    Does anyone sailing on Irresistible Mediterranean on 21-28 August and wish to link the booking and catch up for a beer on a ship?

    I’ll be on that voyage! Would love to link bookings but I have no idea how to do it. I think we need to phone or use the chat help.

    In case it’s of interest to anyone, it seems VV are offering $300 bar credit for November cruises.

    Leanid

    Hi SamSam,
    It will be nice to see you on board. Same as you I have no idea how to activate sailors’ loot. My access key is not valid. Will try to get hold of customer service by online chat. Probably will need your name?? to do that.
    Would you like to send me your details by email or I can share my details if you wish? My email is lhancharuk@yahoo.co.uk

    I just linked bookings with someone on the chat.
    You just need their name and booking number very simple process although chat queue can take a few hours suggest trying at 10am when they open.

    @Paul
    – they have successfully managed to add the $50 credit to both accounts, the person I spoke to didn’t have any issues with it being a “Virgin Red” booking, but said the Sailor Loot is limited to $50 rather than $200 (still appreciated!)
