Yay! We managed to earn enough Virgin Flying Club Points to buy ourselves one free flight to Vegas! And with a bit of scrimping and saving and less impulse-buying in the supermarket, the other flight has been secured too – so Vegas, here we come! I can’t wait!
We’ve been to Las Vegas with Virgin Holidays before and stayed at The Venetian. We absolutely loved it and I swear our suite (Yup it’s an all-suite hotel!) was bigger than the entire downstairs of our house!) One of the brilliant things about staying there and flying with Virgin was that on check-out day, we were able to go straight to the Virgin desk in the hotel and check our bags in for the flight home and get our boarding cards. It meant that we didn’t have to worry about taking our cases to the airport and all the usual airport hassle was taken out of the equation. 5 Stars Virgin for such a brilliant idea!
Don’t know where we’re staying yet - we’ve only booked the flights so far. Last time we booked the whole holiday through Virgin although to be honest looking at just the hotels on the Virgin site , it looks like we’ll be booking through them anyway as their prices are really competitive. One of the things we have already booked though is Afternoon Tea at the Mandarin Oriental. Apparently it’s right up on the 23rd floor so I hope we get a window seat because the views over The Strip are going to be pretty spectacular from up there.
We’re also planning to go and see the Cirque de Soleil LOVE show which will no doubt involve lots of tumbling, leaping around and incredible dancing both up in the air and down on the ground – not by me I hasten to add. In LOVE, Cirque de Soleil are celebrating the music of The Beatles so before we even go through the door, we know the music is going to be good! The show is on at The Mirage so we’ll just have to go and have one of the potent and oh so very good cocktails in The Rhumbar before we go in. We may as well make a night of it – needless to say, not in a ‘Harry-gate’ way though!
