Seeing a gap in the cruise market to cater for the next generation of cruisers, Virgin Voyages established their cruise ship brand in 2014, with four identical ships being released in 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023.

The first of these ships, named Scarlet Lady, carries up to 2700 sailors with an additional 1250 crew members to provide them with the next generation of luxury to premium cruising aimed at a millennial audience.

Much of the Virgin Voyage’s ground-breaking, industry-shaking spirit and Virgin philosophy can be seen in comparison to the Virgin Atlantic airline, but with the three ‘lady ships’ sporting mermaids flying the Virgin banner emblazed on the hull of the ships as opposed to the flying ladies of the airline’s fleet.

As well as providing the ultimate cruise experience for the next generation, Virgin Voyages are working on maintaining the ocean for future generations. In addition to a truly unique hull design to limit drag, measures to limit fuel consumption include state-of-the-art hybrid powered engines and recycled energy to power other systems onboard. Further than aiming to reduce emissions, noise and vibrations from the propulsion system, Virgin Voyages have eradicated single-use plastics from their fleet. This means no plastic straws, no disposable food packaging and no plastic bottles will be found onboard.

A Virgin Voyage is:

  • Adult by design
  • All-inclusive
  • Luxury service
  • Fitness-focussed
  • Relaxed atmosphere
  • Eco-conscious
  • A foody paradise

Virgin Voyage’s Secret Destination

Included in every Caribbean sailing onboard scarlet lady, Virgin Voyages will get to spend a day ashore at a ‘secret’ destination- in Bimini in the Bahamas. Here, guests are able to follow Virgin Voyages’ ‘detox and retox’ mantra to the letter with the perfect balance of hedonism and chill-out time.

  • Mark Ronson DJ sets
  • Explore the SS Sapona shipwreck
  • 6 bars
  • Local cuisine
  • Lazy days at the beach club
  • Yoga and meditation
  • Wild nights at pool party

On four specially selected in 2020, Grammy Award-winning DJ Mark Ronson is on hand to light up the evening’s pool party with everyone’s favourite tunes as the drinks flow and the night spins away.

During the day guests can be as lively or as active as they like. Either lounge by the beach in serene paradise with your favourite cocktail on a lounger or hammock or treat yourself and indulge in a private cabana area. Sample delicious Bahaman cuisine before taking a dip in the lagoon pool, or the crystal-blue sea.

Meanwhile, yoga and meditation sessions allow participating sailors to truly unwind and relax as they enjoy the delights of Virgin Voyages secret destination in zen-like bliss. Alternatively, Virgin Voyage’s sailors can take part in thrilling exploration with a dive down to the famous SS Sapona shipwreck.

When at sea, your time onboard Virgin Voyages’ cruise ships is all about relaxation and rejuvenation. As well as enjoying good company and excellent food, sailors make the most of the Caribbean sun by lounging on a sun bed or cabana with a cocktail, taking part in a health or fitness class or making new friends in the bars, lounges and dining venues.

When it comes to entertainment with Virgin Voyages you simply won’t find better live shows at sea. In the Red Room, you’ll be awestruck by a new show each evening thanks to the technical wizardry of this main theatre venue and its world-class performers from each of the six shows.

As well as aerial acrobatics and quirky cabaret performers bringing new interpretations to favourites such as Romeo and Juliet in the Red Room, during the day Virgin Voyages’ decks become centre stage as flashmob-esque performance troops pop up, perform and met back into the crowd to delight their audiences with a myriad of styles and disciplines.

By night, the ship slowly turns up the energy as the heat goes down and every deck metamorphoses into a playground catered solely to adults. The spa transforms into a cool underground hot spot, sun decks become exclusive al fresco cocktail lounges and the two-tiered nightclub opens for floor-filling tunes and an inclusive atmosphere.

When the next morning dawns, you can rejuvenate with some yoga as the sun rises, or alternatively go for brunch in Razzle Dazzle to eat and drink away the hangover and enjoy a cheeky show from the ship’s resident quirky drag act.

Let your hair down on a Virgin Voyage with:

  • Nightclubs
  • Casinos
  • Cocktail bars
  • Late-night feasts
  • Cabanas
  • Brunches
  • Quirky performers…

Cruise guides & features

Virgin Voyages is a true foodies’ cruise in every single way with all dining options included. With none of the self-serve buffets usually ubiquitous across all ships in the cruising world, Virgin Voyages bucks the overwhelming trend in favour of over 20 varied dining venues.

These 20 restaurants, bars and lounges vary in atmosphere, style and featured cuisines to suit every taste and occasion. Whether you just want a quick snack or a real sense of theatre with your meal, this is one thing each Virgin ship will serve up in abundance.

Instead of the buffet, Virgin Voyages employ an open food stall concept, along the template of a hipster food truck park, called The Galley. Here, each station specialises in one particular cuisine, from freshly rolled sushi, to newly chopped taco fillings or steaming buttery pancakes.

As if it wasn’t possible to get any fresher, the Test Kitchen is another landmark dining venue where the concept of experimentation has been taken to the extreme. Here, sailors can pick from an array of ingredients to create a truly unique dish, dreamt up and realised by themselves with the guide of the expert chefs. Designed around a periodic table and with quirky lab-style place settings, this lab-come-kitchen also hosts exclusive open-fridge and lock-in banquets for a delicious look behind the scenes.

Other Virgin Voyages dining venues are:

  • Extra Virgin – Italian Pasteria
  • Pizza Place – Design your perfect pizza
  • Dock – Mediterranean finger food
  • Wake – steaks and cocktails
  • Pink Agave – Mexican favourites
