    My bigger question: is VV “Pinkwashing”?

    It’s great that they are supporting pride, but are they actually doing anything with the extra profits for the LGBT+ crew or community from the drinks? Companys (including other Virgin brands) have been called out for this before.

    I tried some of the Pride cocktails on Resilient Lady in June 2023, I can remember a watermelon one in The Wake being very good.

    What are the cocktails? You show them, but don’t describe them.

      100% agree. While it’s a fun little thing, that’s exactly what it is, a little thing. We need special events and a special Diva show MINIMUM
