In the race among most airlines to pack in more paying customers into a fixed and very limited aircraft cabin the idea of what constitutes "foot space" or any "space" at all for that matter is a fungible and never easily understood concept on the part of an airline passenger. Believe me when I say that - as a former airline manager - that the airlines would LOVE to give everybody in every section of the plane their own personal "space" but that`s not going to happen in this lifetime from what I can tell.
The cruiser is intended to combine the experiences of a luxury cruise liner with Richard Branson`s ideas of space travel. Features include a gourmet restaurant spa terraced deck with lap pool resident DJ library bungee jumping platform climbing wall and private mini-offices as well as private suites. Its intended audience is the contemporary traveller who would love to go on a cruise but can`t take the time off work. It will transform an otherwise exhausting and ordinary journey into a positive experience.
At 1130 PM (almost two hours after take-off) the meal trays were collected and a wine (port) gourmet cheese fruit and cracker service commenced followed by desert and tea. I opted for the Cherimoya Mousse in a Chocolate Cup which was delightful. Very decadent and was enjoyed by all the surrounding passengers! There were extras of the Chocolate Cup available and passengers were offered a second helping. We politely declined. Desert and tea service continued until midnight and cabin lights were dimmed at 1210 AM for several hours of sleeping.
