Everything You Need to Know Before Sailing on Virgin Voyages

Should you be sailing on Virgin Voyages?

If you’ve clicked through to this piece, chances are you’ve been captivated by the siren song of the seas and you’re considering sailing on Virgin Voyages. And who could blame you?

Virgin Voyages is a game changer in the cruise industry, offering a ship-shape blend of luxury, innovation, and nautical delight. Before you dive in, there are a few key things you should know.

Buckle up; we’re about to set sail on a sea of information.

1. Eco-Friendly and Sustainable Cruising

Virgin Voyages takes pride in its green initiatives. From banning single-use plastics on board to integrating sustainable tech solutions, you’ll be cruising with a clear conscience, knowing you’re doing a bit to help our beautiful blue planet.

Pro Tip: Bring your favorite reusable water bottle (and beverage cup).  Virgin Voyages does not have plastic water bottles for one-time use onboard. 

2. Adults Only, Please

One of the standout features of Virgin Voyages is its adult-only policy. You won’t find kids running around; this ship is all about catering to the grown-up crowd looking for a sophisticated escape.  And it’s fabulous!  Virgin’s best hashtag #nodamnkids

3. Cabin Selections Tailored to You

From the cozy Insider Cabins for those on a budget, the Sea Terraces offering breathtaking ocean views, to the lavish RockStar Suites for those wanting the A-list experience – there’s a perfect room waiting for you.  No doubt, choosing the right cabin elevates your experience when sailing on Virgin Voyages.

I prefer the Rock Star or Mega Rock Star Quarters for it’s extra amenities, including the private rooftop on the ships and private reserved chairs at the gorgeous Bimini Beach Club.

4. No Buffets, Only Culinary Delights

Forget everything you think you know about cruise dining. Virgin Voyages has revolutionized onboard dining. With options like Razzle Dazzle, The Test Kitchen, and Wake, you’re in for a gourmet treat. Don’t forget to make your reservations in advance!   PS Rock Stars have first dibs on all reservations.

Didn’t get the reservation you wanted in advance?  Have no fear! Walk-ups are available and have reasonable waits.  Put your name on the list, grab your favorite cocktail or mocktail, and enjoy the vibe of just being in this gorgeous space!

5. Entertainment Like No Other

With a mix of live music, theater shows, and Scarlet Night – the ship’s iconic party – boredom is a foreign concept on these voyages.

Pro Tip- pack your pjs and best scarlet night outfit, think everyone wears red, and join the party.  All types of pjs’s go so if satin shorts and a tank are your comfort zone, that works! You’ll fit right in.  Not everything has to be as sexy as the ship!

6. Exploring Ashore

Virgin Voyages offers exciting excursions, especially in spots like the sun-soaked beaches of Bimini. Whether you’re on an organized outing or exploring solo, the world is your oyster (or, perhaps, sea scallop).

Not into exploring? That’s ok too. Stay on the ship and enjoy the vast quietness that happens on shore days.

7. Staying Connected

Though you might want to unplug and relax, if you need to stay connected, the Virgin Voyages app and onboard Wi-Fi have got you covered.

Pro tip: The included wifi will get you access to your email, web, and social media browsing.  Want to stream or have faster access? You’ll want to plan to purchase the premium wifi. 

8. Booking with Benefits

Always keep an eye out for promotions, deals, and special offers. As a travel agent with inside information, I often have exclusive deals just waiting to be snatched up.  Love free Sailor Loot?  (aka onboard credit). I’ve got you.  Just ask!

9. Virgin Voyages’ Fleet

While each ship under Virgin Voyages has its own unique flair and features, you can expect consistent quality, service, and luxury across the board. Whether you’re on the Scarlet Lady or Valiant Lady, there’s a unique experience waiting.  And why not sail them all, you know, for the sake of research!

10. Ready for RockStar Treatment?

Virgin’s RockStar and Mega RockStar suites offer VIP experiences like no other, with additional perks, amenities, and exclusives that regular cabins simply don’t have.

If you’re looking for a cruise experience that’s a cut above the rest, filled with luxury, innovation, and fun, Virgin Voyages is a stellar choice.
