I'm interested but I thought it's about 3 years out so will have to wait and see.  I'm intrigued by many of Branson's "travel plans".  At what point, will you have firm itineraries in place and begin booking?

I almost answered it's way too late in the day for that concept ...

 Richard Branson is brilliant - reinventing whole industries. If anyone can save cruising - he can. Looks like he's building a brand new fleet - smaller ( 2,860 passengers/1,150 crewmembers), more nimble and passenger-oriented. What['s the target date - 2020? I'm definitely in.

If it will be along the lines of Virgin America Airlines then maybe not.  The airline tries to be flashy and overly sexy.  Way too gawdy for me.  I can't see being on a cruise ship surrounded by constant mood lighting and "nose high" crew members that all look like they just stepped off a modeling runway in Paris.  I'm on the conservative side and want a setting that doesn't make me feel like I'm part of an "Austin Powers" movie.

And that's the good news - those who prefer bloated archaic infrastructure striving for economies of scale by gouging customers and bare-bones service - they can have that. Those who want barf bag party ships - can have that. And those who want service, smiles, class, comfort at a fair price? They (hopefully) can have that  (in two years or so...).

 

It's all (or will be) good.

From what I have read,  the target demographic will be younger then I am.  Until it is out and a bunch of reviews,  I'll stick with the lines I can count on.

It all depends on the price point. Will it be priced under the luxury model, the premium model or the discount model?
