  1. Not sure about VV, but Sandals employees can be fired for accepting tips.

    Let me clear this up. we use a filtered water pitcher at home and refill water bottles only for bed time. we are very ecological and regularly recycle.

    Thanks for clearing that up, will bring some empty plastic water bottles. We like bottled water next to the bed, not glass.

    The website says there are no single serve bottles allowed. We were told to bring our own plastic water bottles to refill around the ship. It also says there are only pitchers of water in the cabins. So this is good news.

    I understand there are no single serving bottles or cans, so everything must be on tap. What beers do VV carry? I am not a big fan of IPA beers, especially dark or fruity. Does VV carry anything like Stella?
  6. Google says the current weather in DR is 86 in the day to 70 a night.. The 56 is misleading probably part of the Florida cold front. It is never or hardly ever below 65 in the Caribbean.

  8. As a Captain and an experienced sailor, it is impossible to know sea state, except a few days in advance, go to windguru.com
  9. Thank you all, guess we’ll have to adjust accordingly. Usually staying on land in Europe we eat between 9-10, quite usually for Europe
  10. Are there any river cruises that do not have set meal times, not our favorite. We were sold on AMA until we learned dinner was at 7 for everyone. Any suggestions for a river cruise with more liberal meal times?
