Why You Should Cruise With Virgin Voyages

This August, Virgin Voyages finally set sail with UK getaways onboard Scarlet Lady. From more than 20 eateries to modern cabins and suites and some of the most exciting entertainment at sea, guests have had the chance to experience ocean voyaging like never before. Whether you've been lucky enough to sail already and can't wait to get back, or you're thinking about booking your first Virgin Voyages cruise, keep reading to find out just why you should choose this exciting cruise line.

1. Choose From Fly and No Fly Cruises

Whether you want to stay close to home or venture further afield, Virgin Voyages give you the choice thanks to their fantastic itineraries. If you want to explore Europe, you'll find sailings in both the Western Mediterranean and the Greek Isles. Fly to meet your ship in Athens or Barcelona and get whisked away on an unforgettable voyage. Alternatively, meet your ship in Miami where you'll get to embark on exciting itineraries around the Caribbean.

However, if you want to make your holiday as stress-free as possible, there are also no fly cruises from Portsmouth in 2022. Easy to get to by car or train, avoid busy airports and long flights by heading straight to the port and kick your holiday off even sooner.

2. Enjoy Overnight Stays In Exciting Ports Of Call

Not only will you get to embark on fantastic itineraries, on most Virgin Voyages' cruises you'll also get to enjoy an overnight stay onboard in an exciting destination. If you're sailing around the Mediterranean, get ready for a night out on the iconic island of Ibiza. If it's the Greek Isles you're exploring, party town Mykonos awaits. And if you're in the Caribbean, Virgin Voyages' very own Bimini Beach Club, a private island beach resort, welcomes you ashore.

  • Pop-up performances
  • Sunrise yoga
  • Karaoke rooms
  • Group fitness classes

4. Stay In Innovative Cruise Cabins Or Suites

It's not just what you can do onboard and the destinations you visit which makes a Virgin Voyages cruise the perfect choice. You'll also get to experience some of the most innovative cabins and suites at sea thanks to Scarlet Lady, Valiant Lady and Resilient Lady. Inspired by modern superyachts, whether you choose an inside cabin or splash out on a luxurious suite, you'll be delighted with what you find inside. Control the mood with mood lighting, relax during the day with a seabed which turns into a sofa, cast a film onto the TV or if you've got a balcony, take in the ocean views as you swing on the outside hammock. If you've chosen a suite, expect even more exciting features from hot tubs and record players to exclusive access to Richard's Rooftop.
