'Cruise Circle says...'
Inspired by the modern luxury of yachting and the romance of the open ocean, Virgin Voyages have created their very own boutique hotel at sea — with no kids, no ordinary experiences and no reason to stay home.
Taking cues from the best international cities, Virgin Voyages have created a getaway at sea with the perfect balance of uptown meets downtown — where paths diverge and choice is an artistic part of the journey. Combining the warmth and luxury of a yacht with the endless options of a much larger ship, Virgin Voyages offer an elevated and intimate environment that inspires personal and experiential connection.
Vibrant conversation over homemade pasta and (multiple) bottles of Chianti. Immersive performances with (elaborate) circus twists. A fitness class you’d never dream of taking (and conquering) back home. Champagne delivered right to you and your new friends with the shake of the app (seriously). Virgin Voyages' experiences aim to connect you — to people, places, and (seafaring) paths you never thought to wander.
Set Sail The Virgin Way
Sailors will enjoy the glamour of a boutique hotel on the ocean blended with unmistakable Virgin style and service. A sophisticated yet relaxed Adults Only experience free of formality - where the ordinary turns into extraordinary….because at Virgin everyone deserves to feel like a RockStar. Featuring spaces designed by some of the top names in contemporary interiors, their fleet of ships offer a sanctuary at sea for the 18+ traveller. A dose of Vitamin Sea will be naturally intertwined across the entire ship, with well-being activated through a mix of high-energy moments coupled with relaxation and rejuvenation. Ships also feature alluring entertainment and 20+ world-class intimate eateries on-board, expertly-designed social spaces and wellness zones; and unbelievable ocean views in almost every single one of the staterooms.
Who goes on Virgin Voyages cruise ships?
Virgin Voyages wants brand loyalists who have never cruised to make the leap and try out the line, so first-time cruisers are likely. The line's cool vibe and big personality is also expected to reach the Millennial market and bring in lots of under-30s (though no one under 18 is permitted onboard), but you'll find plenty of Gen Xers as well.
Do I have to dress up on a Virgin Voyages cruise?
No. There is no dress code on Virgin Voyages ships, but expect lots of chic "rent a runway"-style duds in the evening.
Is everything free on Virgin Voyages cruises?
No, but cruise fares will be fairly inclusive, especially for a big-ship cruise line. The cruise fare will include all dining, gratuities (even in the spa), basic drinks (soda, bottled and sparkling water, juices), basic Wi-Fi and group fitness classes.
Extra charges will include streaming Wi-Fi, alcoholic drinks, shore excursions, and spa and beauty treatments.
Cruisers staying in one of the line's RockStar Quarters will receive perks such as early boarding through a VIP entrance, priority access to booking, 24/7 access to "RockStar" agents who can fulfill any of your Rock Star needs, as well as the ability to create a rider (wish list) of just about anything they want their suite stocked with.
What are Virgin Voyages's most popular activities?
With the first ship not yet launched, it's hard to know what the most popular activities will be, but the nightlife is expected to be one of the main draws of the ship, with lots of bars and lounges and unusual night activities, including aerialists, comedy, pop-up music, interactive theater and more. (There will be no traditional big-stage production shows.)
Additionally, the fleet is being designed around a "Vitamin Sea" philosophy that emphasizes daytime relaxation and wellness. The line expects cruisers to participate in a detox, retox array of activities throughout the day
