Experience the Future of Cruising with Virgin Voyages

Plan your adults-only cruising experience with Virgin Voyages, featuring stylish ships, inclusive pricing, and eco-friendly initiatives.

The Buzz Around Virgin Voyages

Virgin Voyages has been generating quite a bit of buzz, especially since it’s relatively new to the cruise industry, aimed at reshaping the cruise experience. Here are some of the highlights:

1. Adults-Only Atmosphere

One of the most talked-about features is that Virgin Voyages is an adults-only cruise line. This is a great way for travelers looking for a more adult atmosphere without the presence of children.

2. Inclusive Pricing

Many of my clients appreciate the more inclusive pricing over other cruise lines. The fare includes basic beverages like soda, tips, and Wi-Fi, which are an extra charge on many other cruise lines.

3. Flexible Dining Options

Additionally, dining is made more flexible and inclusive, with no main dining room and no buffets, which is very different from traditional cruise dining setups.

Virgin Voyages has “bar tabs” so you don’t need to buy a package. It is simply a prepaid amount on your account. If only one of you in the room drinks, you don’t have to prepay for two drink packages as you do on other cruise lines.

4. Stylish, Modern Ships

The ships themselves (like the Scarlet Lady and Valiant Lady) are often noted for their stylish, modern design. The decor is less traditional and more reflective of a contemporary boutique hotel, which appeals to younger travelers and those looking for a fresh take on cruising. No brown panel walls here!

5. Immersive Entertainment

The entertainment on board is top-notch, with a focus on immersive and unconventional performances rather than the standard cruise fare.

6. Health and Wellness Focus

The emphasis on health and wellness, with numerous fitness classes included in the cruise fare, is also a highlight for many. Again, an extra charge on many lines. We could all use a free yoga class!

7. Culinary Excellence

The food receives high marks for quality and variety. With more than 20 eateries on board, ranging from casual to fine dining, passengers appreciate the flexibility to eat when and how they prefer without the extra cost.

The food is made with fresh ingredients, made to order, and the menus are designed by Michelin-starred chefs. At present, the only upcharge is for a “Seafood Tower” and a “Tomahawk Steak”.

8. Environmental Initiatives

Virgin Voyages has also received praise for its environmental initiatives. The line aims to be one of the greenest in the sea, focusing on energy efficiency and reducing waste. Unnecessary single-use plastics, including straws, water bottles, shopping bags, food packaging, stirrers, and takeaway cups, are banned from the sailor experience.

9. Professional and Fun Service

The service on board has an upbeat vibe! While being professional, the fun spirit of the crew makes the cruise even more enjoyable.

With the Virgin Voyages app, you can shake your phone and a bottle of champagne will be delivered on ice to your location! You can pay for it with your bar tab and never have to get up!

10. Diverse Destinations

Virgin Voyages sails the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, and European destinations, providing ample options for exploration. They recently launched their 4th ship sailing in 2025 to the Panama Canal and Alaska to name a few. Cruises for the Brilliant Lady ship are available now.

Who Should Choose Virgin Voyages?

Virgin Voyages is recommended for adults and couples looking for a lively, sophisticated, and different cruising experience. It’s a good option for those who may not consider themselves “traditional cruisers” but want to enjoy the amenities and ease of travel that a cruise offers.
