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.
Virgin Voyages will appeal to a broad range of travellers. Early reports are that most booked guests are aged 37-62 with an average age of 47. Most have cruised before but are looking to try a new take on the cruise experience. The new-to-cruise customers the brand is likely to appeal to most are those curious about a holiday at sea, those who like stylish accommodation and excellent service, plus the feeling that they can indulge by night and detox by day, enjoying time with their travelling companions.
No. There is no dress code on Virgin Voyages ships, but given expect lots of chic "rent a runway"-style threads in the evening.
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 fulfil 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.
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 theatre 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
