Set sail the Virgin way
Virgin Voyages has introduced a new way of sailing, with an experience that is both sophisticated and relaxed.
The ships are adult by design. Sailings are exclusively for those aged 18 and over, with experiences that are all expertly curated with adults in mind. Virgin Voyages also incorporates longer stops and overnight stays in port on many of its itineraries, giving Sailors extra time to explore destinations.
Back on board, a range of exciting and diverse entertainment includes a host of groundbreaking acts. And each voyage comes with more than $600 in value included, like dining, basic beverages, tips, Wi-Fi and group fitness classes.
Sailors can enjoy made-to-order delicacies in the restaurants
There’s a ‘relaxed luxe’ atmosphere on board. When it comes to dining, there are more than 20 eateries to choose from, all with premium service. There are no buffets or pre-set dining times, so Sailors can enjoy made-to-order delicacies in the restaurants.
Virgin Voyages’ ships are the epitome of boutique glamour, with technology and sustainability underlining their epic design. Features such as LED lighting and tinted windows also help the vessels to use less energy without compromising on style.
Virgin Voyages’ first ship, Scarlet Lady, made waves when it entered the market in 2021. Valiant Lady will soon follow, sailing itineraries in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, as well as transatlantic routes. The fleet’s third ship, Resilient Lady, is set to make its debut in 2022.
