A brand new luxury voyage experience
Welcome aboard Virgin Voyages, the new sailing experience that's bringing about an 'Epic Sea Change for All'. This experience is a lot of things, but definitely not a cruise. Instead, expect a voyage that cultivates curiosity, encourages experience and advocates adventure. With Virgin Voyages, you're never just a passenger – you're a sailor.
Virgin Voyages offers a cheeky and cheerful approach to service, as well as an inclusive approach to sea travel that removes those pesky add-ons. Sailors will enjoy food at the 20+ restaurants onboard (at no added cost). Free fitness clases and free wifi (so you can share your favourite holidays snaps whilst living for the moment!). Aimed at providing a transformative experience through a liberal dose of ‘Vitamin Sea’, the Virgin Voyages ideology places the ocean and its role in both personal and global wellbeing at centre stage.
Virgin Voyages offers four and five-night itineraries, all setting sail from Miami and taking Sailors to Havana, Cuba – one of many ports to conquer - as well as visiting the beautiful island of Bimini, Bahamas where sailors can bask in the sun at the much anticipated announcement of The Beach Club.
Say a big 'Viva!' to this amazing sailing experience, with an itinerary that takes you to historic Cuba where you can explore Havana After Dark (and by day) with an overnight stay.
Experience an epic five-night voyage to Costa Maya, Mexico. Explore Mayan ruins close to the port, then dive in and makes pals with the colourful creatures who live in the coral reefs just off shore.
This is an ocean-lover's dream: a five-night voyage to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. It's the perfect place to surf waves, trek through canyons and catch a cable car up the mountain – or sip a tall drink and do nothing at all.
Not wanting to get shipped off with a boat-load of children? While we cater for the young at heart, Virgin Voyages offer strictly adult-only cruises. Sure, the little ones would probably love life at sea, but we want you to discover your inner child – not have to look after one.
If you thought cruise food was buffets and queues – think again. From Korean BBQ, pizza shops, Mediterranean mezze and Mexican restaurants through to a legendary drag queen brunch, Virgin Voyages’ 24-hour food and beverage service is always made to order with a wide selection of restaurants and dining onboard the Scarlet Lady.
No more single-use plastics is just the start of Virgin Voyages’ commitment to sustainable sailing. Newly-built, state-of-the-art and eco-friendly cruise ships use cutting-edge technology so you can concentrate on leaving your footprints in the sand and not on the planet.
Still not impressed? Virgin Voyages use Azipod propulsion technology to reduce fuel consumption by 15 per cent and has partnered with Swedish cleantech experts, Climeon, to convert heat from ship engines back into electricity, helping reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
To complement artist Toby Tinsley’s revolutionary ship design, Virgin Voyages' partnered with world-renowned interior designer Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio; New York’s Roman and Williams (The Ace Hotel and the Standard Highline); Concrete Amsterdam (Citizen M and Hotel Zoku), and Softroom in London to reimagine the modern luxury cruise experience.
From the VIP rooftop, club lounge and sky rooms, which use dichroic rainbow-effect glass, through to the world’s first onboard tattoo parlour – The Scarlet Lady boasts theatrical spaces with a sense of drama and fun throughout.
The ‘Vitamin Sea’ ethos not only focuses on the wellbeing of the ocean but also that of its sailors. With a selection of onboard programmes, including Crows’ Nest sunrise and sunset yoga sessions, you’ll find more than enough things to help you detox (and retox).
If the idea of letting those abs go without a plank for a few days is enough to make you walk one, take a step inside Athletic Club. Resembling a 1920s New York sports club, sailors can hit the outdoor training zone, boxing ring and gym, or head outside to set PBs on The Runway running track.
Not quite your idea of relaxation? No problem. Redemption, the ship’s spa, will transport you to an underwater cave complete hydrotherapy pool, mud room, salt room, cold plunge pools, quartz beds and rejuvenating treatments.
From the glamourous Wake restaurant, with its high-end surf ‘n’ turf, through to Razzle Dazzle the vegan/vegetarian restaurant and juice bar; with over 20 restaurant and dining options on board, The Scarlet Lady literally caters for all tastes.
If you’re wanting to brush up on your culinary classics, The Test Kitchen is one not to miss. Foodies will love the cooking classes, mixology school and coffee labs – not to mention midnight feasts and late-night lock ins!
For a more chilled beach-club vibe, check out The Dock, serving Mediterranean small plates, salads, dips and mezzes or head to The Galley, modelled on food halls and featuring shops and food carts.
As the sun sets, you’ll probably be looking for something livelier to keep you entertained into the small hours. Signature nightclub The Manor takes inspiration from one of our original Virgin Music recording studios – make sure to pack your dancing shoes.
Finally, what better way to commemorate your time on board than by heading to Squid Ink,where tattoo artist Lou Rubino Jr has hand-picked two resident tattooists to make sure those memories never fade.
