  1. Claire says:

    Hi, Have I made an error here?
    Sunset hour is 5-6pm, but if I’ve booked dinner reservations at 6pm, should I ask sailor services to move them by 15 or 30min to enjoy the full Sunset hour, or can we turn up a little late to the restaurants? I don’t know the walk from RR to the various restaurants, OR could I ask a Rockstar agent to escort/guide us.
    What are the suggestions? Sail in 30 days.

    1. Rob Sammons says:

      Hey Claire, they allow a 15 minute window after your reservation to show up before they cancel so essentially you have till 6:15pm. But also as you are Rockstar just ask your agent to move them a little back for you if you need more time and they’ll sort it all out 🙂

      1. Claire says:

        Thank you thats a reassuring answer. Hooray x

  2. Cheryl Jasper says:

    This sounds great, but can I just clarify that from 5-6 EVERY evening the drinks are ‘free’ for Rockstars at Richards rooftop bar?

    1. VV Insider says:

      Hi Cheryl correct every single evening of your cruise !
