THE VIRGIN DIFFERENCE
Rebellious Luxe Cabins & Suites, unforgettable parties and mouthwatering food: just some of the unexpected twists that make Virgin Voyages one of a kind.
Things that make you go HELL YEAH!
The adults-only “Scarlet Lady” ship and her accommodations
This sleek mid-sized (and eco-friendly) ship holds 1,330 cabins and 78 rockstar suites, accommodating up to 2,770 passengers. The variety of interior cabins and expansive suites feature rain showers, fancy German custom-designed “seabeds” to maximize space, hammocks, and large flat-screen televisions that are at least 43 inches. Rooms are also all equipped with tablets that control everything: air conditioning, room service, dinner reservations, and even show downloads. 86 percent of the rooms have balconies, and 93 percent offer beautiful ocean views. If you want to party like a rock-star, check out one of the “massive suites” that come complete with a music room, instruments included.
Focused on the Young at heart...
Not the young that haven't turned 18 yet! If you’ve heard anything about Virgin, it’s likely that it’s an “adults only” cruise line. That’s right. While most mass-market lines focus on the family by having kids areas and activities, Virgin has a policy of being 18 years or older to take a cruise on its ships. That means no kids running around and no space on the ship used trying to entertain families.
Longer Stays In Port!
If you take a 7-day cruise with three stops, you might think that means you have three days in port. The truth is much less time is spent on shore. Ships will normally arrive around 8 or 9 in the morning and then all aboard is around 4 p.m. So you get about eight hours in port.
It’s been a big complaint among cruise passengers that so little time is spent in ports of call. In fact, some traditional cruise lines have started to extend their stays, even with overnight stays in places like Havana. Virgin Voyages is taking things a step further.
The cruise line will also have overnight stays in Havana, but its stops in other ports are longer too. Trips to Costa Maya in Mexico arrive at 9 a.m. and don’t depart until 7 p.m. And stops at “The Beach Club” — Virgin’s private island — are from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. on some trips.
In other words, Virgin is adding much more time in port than other cruise lines.
Forget paying $$ per day on board the ship, your virgin voyage comes with FREE Wifi!
Virgin Voyages doesn’t have traditional drink packages for sale. So you’ll need to purchase your boozy beverages glass-by-glass aboard the Scarlet Lady.Stay hydrated with filtered still and sparkling water, non-pressed juices, sodas, teas or even drip coffee if you need a boost.
There is a Focus on Shorter Cruises
Many cruise lines have taken to offering shorter trips. Instead of the traditional 7-day cruise, you’ll see lots of four and five-day trips. These trips are especially popular with younger passengers who don’t have to take as much time off from work or school and like the lower fares associated with shorter cruises.
Still, a cruise line like Carnival, Norwegian, or Royal Caribbean offers a number of longer trips.
Virgin Voyages, however, offers only four and five-night trips at this time, with prices (remember everything that is included) starting at $725 per person.
No Nickel & Diming
One of the bigger complaints about Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and others is the nickel and dining that goes on once you are on the ship. First you pay your fare and then it’s extra for bottled water… or soda… or Internet… or some restaurants… and don’t forget tips. The price you actually pay on the ship can be just the start of what you’ll spend.
Instead, Virgin is turning that model around, making many of the things like drinks (not including alcohol), Internet, and all dining options included in the price of the cruise. Once on board, you’re going to need to pay for alcohol and excursions, but not much more.
Your cruise fare includes all dining (more on that below) and fitness classes, as well as a few amenities that often cost extra on cruises, namely wifi, gratuities, and nonalcoholic beverages. The last three items can cost hundreds of extra dollars per person on other lines, so we’re excited about this extra value. Additionally, the cruise line will also be offering water refilling stations throughout the ship.
Drop the Mic Entertainment
Let’s be clear — there are no specific details yet of what the minute-by-minute schedule of things to do on a Virgin cruise will be. But we know that in general the “traditional” entertainment you see across cruise lines will be given a run for its money.
Expect performance shows that are “off-off-off Broadway” and “wonderfully strange,” according to the company. Music and DJs are a big part of the atmosphere, and there are going to be things to do 24 hours per day. There is also a a “Scarlet Night” scheduled to be a blow-out event to put a punctuation mark at the end of your trip.
We think it’s safe to say that some of the more bland entertainment on a ship that is common across traditional cruise lines will be tossed overboard.
Wait, Tattoos At Sea?
Wait, tattoos on a cruise ship?
Scarlet Lady, the first-ever “Virgin Voyages” cruise ship, is set to have a vegan tattoo studio onboard named “Squid Ink.” The new parlor is a joint venture between Virgin and the globally recognized tattoo ink brand World Famous Tattoo Ink.the new cruise liner will have two full-time tattoo artists onboard chosen by Lou Rubino Jr, the owner of World Famous Tattoo Ink and visionary behind the New York tattoo studio Soho Ink, and tattoo-themed magazine Freshly Inked. According to Virgin, Rubino’s vegan products not only exceed safety standards, but they are also non-toxic and cruelty-free.
Solo Cabins for Solo Cruisers
Scarlet Lady’s solo accommodations include 40 windowless, 105-square-foot Solo Insider rooms that are sleek and stylish with full-size beds, large flat-screen televisions, curvy vanities and high-design bathrooms. There also will be six similar-looking Solo Sea View cabins that measure about 130 square feet and offer windows.
Note that the solo cabins with windows are at the very front of the ship, facing forward. While that’s a spectacular location for sightseeing, seasoned cruisers know that cabins at the very front of vessels can be a bit bumpy in rough seas. I love a little movement when I cruise (how else do you know you’re at sea!), but if you don’t, consider yourself warned.
On a per-person basis, pricing for Scarlet Lady’s solo cabins appears to be just a tad higher for now than regular cabins. At the time of publishing, Solo Insider cabins for September 2020 sailings are starting at $825. Regular Inside cabins for the same month start at $750 per person, based on double occupancy (which means the cabin price actually is $1,500).
Industry Average Supplement = 51-93%
A new player in the cruise industry, Virgin Voyages has also already established itself as a top player in the world of solo cruising. Its debut ship, the Scarlet Lady, will feature both interior and ocean view staterooms for solo passengers. Plus, the single supplement is minimal – so if you choose to book a standard stateroom, you won’t pay much more than if you were sharing the room with someone else.
The Scarlet Lady is launching in spring 2020, so it’s hard to say for sure how single-friendly the onboard environment will be. But from what Virgin has revealed so far, it sounds like the ship will be a non-stop party – perfect for meeting people. Paired with the fact that the ship is adults-only, who knows what could happen onboard?
Adult health & Fitness
Scarlet Lady boasts the most comprehensive fitness program at sea. Decks 15 to 17 have just about everything you could dream of to maintain your fitness regime while at sea, including sunrise and sunset yoga, a place to jog, boot camps, a spin studio, balance studio and all the gym equipment you’d find at home, there’s even a boxing ring. Best of all, all group classes are included in your fare. Of course there’s a spa too for that well-deserved pampering. Virgin Voyages is all about more, not less than you find on other cruise ships. There’s a dedicated mani pedi salon too.
Shake for Champagne.
Sailors will be able to celebrate all of life’s moments with Virgin Voyages’ on-demand champagne delivery service. When the Sailor App is shaken, a secret champagne button appears and, with just one press, a bottle of Möet & Chandon Impérial will be delivered in a Virgin red champagne bucket. We make no promises about Richard Branson being the one to deliver it, however.
Get In A Circle!
“We refer to ‘groups’ of sailors as Circles because we love the idea of celebrating togetherness and human connection at sea,” said Virgin Voyages president and CEO Tom McAlpin.
- Circles have the benefit of being able to work together to earn perks, discounts and advantages that are not extended to those outside the group.
- You can bring your own Circle (Anniversary group, Bday Celebration, Reunion etc.,) or join one of our Girl Let's Go pre-organized circles that are an open call to travelers who would like to cruise with the group and enjoy the perks!

The Buffet Is Gone
On cruise ships, the buffet is one of the main points of dining… and we aren’t sure why. We’ll be honest — we don’t like buffets and try to avoid them. Food sitting out under heat lamps just don’t appeal to us. Evidently it doesn’t appeal to Virgin either.
The cruise line is completely doing away with buffets. Instead, all the restaurants on its ships will be available free of charge — there are no specialty restaurants with charges to eat at like on most cruise ships. Furthermore, the food seems to be more in line with what younger passengers should like. There are many sit-down options, but also easy and tasty items like bento boxes, tacos, and a burger grill that you can grab and eat without much fuss.
Richard Branson hates buffets – which is why they will be non-existent on Virgin Voyages. Instead, passengers can choose from an array of more than 20 eateries that will offer a range of cuisines, from Korean barbecue to Mexican. Some restaurants will stay open late – just in case you’re craving a midnight snack. Bonus: Branson said that all the tables in the restaurants are safe to dance on, if that gives a sense of who Virgin Voyages is trying to lure to their ships.
Perhaps nowhere is it more clear that Virgin is a completely new take on cruising than the fact that it will have a topless area for its passengers. While not out of place in Europe, topless cruising isn’t really a thing in North America.
Bottles of Wine
An upgrade from the norm, most cruise lines allow guests to bring one bottle of wine per person.
We’ve talked a bit about everything that’s included in your cruise fare. But we’ve left off one major item — gratuities.
Traditional cruise lines don’t mention gratuities (or tips, or service charges) until you are almost ready to book. Then they mention the extra charge, which can add up to be significant. For instance, a cruise line charging $14 per person, per day for gratuities would tack on another $140 to the cost of a couple taking a 5-day cruise.
On Virgin, tips are taken care of already so you don’t have to worry about an extra charge on top of your cruise fare.
"On Deck" Cruises
Music is in our DNA so it’s no surprise that our On Deck sailings will feature groundbreaking, globally renowned DJ talent like Mark Ronson, Diplo, MK and Sofi Tukker for up-close and personal appearances at our stunning private Beach Club at Bimini.
No Drink Packages!
With unique spaces and diverse options, we’ve ditched the one-big-dining-hall experience and said goodbye to buffets.
Purchase a $300 prepaid bar tab and we’ll double our usual $50 bonus, giving you $100 extra to spend at any bar on board or at The Beach Club. Available for a limited time. Cheers! (Limited Time Promotion)
“Razzle Dazzle is the place where your vegan friend, your carnivorous friend, your vegetarian friend, and your friend who hasn’t bought groceries in two years can all enjoy their favorite dish,” the company advertises. Twice during every voyage, the restaurant will also hold an entertaining Drag Brunch. Scarlet Lady is also being developed with sustainability-focused measures, including a ban on single-use plastics and wasteful buffet-style dining.

Home Port: Barcelona, Spain
Ibiza is one of the Balearic islands, an archipelago of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea. It's well known for the lively nightlife in Ibiza Town and Sant Antoni, where major European nightclubs have summer outposts. It’s also home to quiet villages, yoga retreats and beaches, from Platja d'en Bossa, lined with hotels, bars and shops, to quieter sandy coves backed by pine-clad hills found all around the coast.
Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory and headland, on Spain's south coast. It’s dominated by the Rock of Gibraltar, a 426m-high limestone ridge. First settled by the Moors in the Middle Ages and later ruled by Spain, the outpost was ceded to the British in 1713. Layers of fortifications include the remains of a 14th-century Moorish Castle and the 18th century Great Siege Tunnels, which were expanded in WWII.
Monte Carlo is officially an administrative area of the Principality of Monaco, specifically the ward of Monte Carlo/Spélugues, where the Monte Carlo Casino is located.
Palma de Mallorca
Palma is a resort city and capital of the Spanish island of Mallorca (Majorca), in the western Mediterranean. The massive Santa María cathedral, a Gothic landmark begun in the 13th century, overlooks the Bay of Palma. The adjacent Almudaina is a Moorish-style Arab fortress converted to a royal residence. West of the city, hilltop Bellver Castle is a medieval fortress with a distinctive circular shape.
Ajaccio is the capital of Corsica, a French island in the Mediterranean Sea. A port city on the rugged isle's western coast, it was the birthplace of French Emperor Napoléon Bonaparte in 1769. His ancestral home, Maison Bonaparte, is now a museum displaying family heirlooms. The baroque, 16th-century Notre-Dame Cathedral, where Napoléon was baptized, contains paintings by Delacroix and Tintoretto.
Cagliari is the capital city of the Italian island of Sardinia. It’s known for the hilltop Castello, a medieval walled quarter situated high over the rest of the town. Architectural highlights include the 13th-century Cagliari Cathedral. Housed in a former arsenal, the Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Cagliari displays bronze objects, Roman ceramics and artifacts from the Nuragic age to the Byzantine era.
Málaga is a port city on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its high-rise hotels and resorts jutting up from yellow-sand beaches. Looming over that modern skyline are the city’s 2 massive hilltop citadels, the Alcazaba and ruined Gibralfaro, remnants of Moorish rule. The city's soaring Renaissance cathedral is nicknamed La Manquita ("one-armed lady") because one of its towers was curiously left unbuilt.
Marseille, a port city in southern France, has been a crossroads of immigration and trade since its founding by the Greeks circa 600 B.C. At its heart is the Vieux-Port (Old Port), where fishmongers sell their catch along the boat-lined quay. Basilique Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde is a Romanesque-Byzantine church. Modern landmarks include Le Corbusier’s influential Cité Radieuse complex and Zaha Hadid’s CMA CGM Tower.
Olbia is a coastal city in northeast Sardinia, Italy. It’s known for the medieval San Simplicio basilica, and for cafes dotting central squares like Piazza Matteotti. On the palm-lined waterfront to the east, the Museo Archeologico di Olbia has exhibits ranging from Nuragic artifacts to Roman warships. The hilltop Nuraghe Riu Mulinu is an archaeological complex with views of the Gulf of Olbia.
Toulon is a port city on southern France’s Mediterranean coast, lined with sandy beaches and shingle coves. It’s a significant naval base and the harbor is home to submarines and warships, as well as fishing boats and ferries. The grand Musée National de la Marine in the Port of Toulon exhibits maritime artifacts. Rugged limestone mountains form a backdrop to the city, and a cable car shuttles visitors up Mont Faron.
Marina de Carrara
Marina di Carrara Italy is a modern seaside resort with many facilities and a fine, large, soft sandy beach stretching between the blue on one side and green pine-woods on the other one. All parts of the beach are divided in to "Bagni", places where tourist can rent chairs, umbrellas, etc.
Costa Maya is a stretch of Caribbean coast on Mexico’s eastern Yucatán Peninsula. Mahahual village is known as a popular cruise ship port, with beaches and coral reefs. Offshore, the reefs and mangroves of Banco Chinchorro Biosphere Reserve are inhabited by sharks, dolphins and turtles. To the north, Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is home to jaguars, monkeys and hundreds of bird species.
San Juan, Puerto Rico's capital and largest city, sits on the island's Atlantic coast. Its widest beach fronts the Isla Verde resort strip, known for its bars, nightclubs and casinos. Cobblestoned Old San Juan features colorful Spanish colonial buildings and 16th-century landmarks including El Morro and La Fortaleza, massive fortresses with sweeping ocean views, as well as the Paseo de la Princesa bayside promenade.
Cozumel - Playa Del Carmen
Playa del Carmen sits at the heart of the stunning Riviera Maya and directly opposite, floating beautifully on the horizon you will see the island of Cozumel. Cozumel is a mostly undeveloped island, famous for its world-class diving opportunities.
Key West, a U.S. island city, is part of the Florida Keys archipelago. It's also Florida's southernmost point, lying roughly 90 miles north of Cuba. Famed for its pastel-hued, conch-style houses, it’s a cruise-ship stop also accessible from the mainland via the Overseas Highway. It’s known more for its coral reefs – destinations for diving and snorkeling – than for its beaches.
San Felipe de Puerto Plata is the capital of the Puerto Plata province on the Dominican Republic’s Atlantic north coast. The city is best known for its beaches. Playa Dorada’s lengthy beachfront is backed by resorts and an 18-hole golf course. The city’s old colonial-era center is dominated by the 16th-century Fortaleza San Felipe, a Spanish fortress that now houses historical and military artifacts.
Beach Club at Bimini
Note: Virgin has not yet released some of the island's details, including pricing for equipment rentals and menus for dining menus. We will update this story as more information becomes available. Beach Club at Bimini is Virgin Voyages 4.5 acre private area (it is not a private island) it's not a private island, so passengers will also have the option to explore other parts of Bimini, should they wish to do so.
During each call on The Beach Club at Bimini, cruisers can experience a nighttime pool party with tunes from resident DJs, the first of whom is DJ, songwriter and record producer Mark Ronson. Following that, visitors can head down to the beach for the nightly bonfire "fireball ritual" before returning to the ship for sailaway.
While ashore at The Beach Club, passengers booked in RockStar Suites on Virgin's ships can take advantage of an exclusive terrace section, complete with loungers, a dedicated DJ and bar, food delivery and a private beach area with cabanas.
Peace and Quiet
Virgin has said that its goal for The Beach Club is to slowly and quietly ease visitors into their days ashore with optional beach yoga and meditation before turning up the volume with things like pool parties and barbecues. But, the line has also said it wants to make sure visitors can take advantage of quiet relaxation at any time of day. To that end, the facility will also include a quiet zone that encourages self-reflection.
Two food stations, which the line calls "food groves," will provide complimentary lunchtime bites, such as conch and mango salad or lechon asado on Bimini bread. Barbecues will also be held, featuring grilled fare with a side of DJ-spun music.
No beach day would be complete without the option for water sports. Passengers can rent equipment from an onsite "shack" to prepare for a day of snorkeling, shipwreck diving and other active pursuits.
Bars and Lounges Galore
With a total of six bars found throughout The Beach Club, cruisers won't have a shortage of watering holes. Near each, visitors will also find chic lounge areas with cushy seating from which to enjoy their beverages. We're talking stylish, cushioned booths; shaded hammocks; and even hanging wicker swing chairs, which will dangle over the water at the pool bar.
Beach and Pool
In addition to ocean access via the beach, The Beach Club will also feature a large lagoon-style pool that serves as the central focal point of the area. Surrounded by lounge chairs and umbrellas, it will host sun worshippers by day and dance parties by night (more on that below).
One of the biggest complaints we hear about cruises is that they don't allow long enough stays in each port, but that won't be the case with Virgin's calls on Bimini. In most cases, the ship will arrive early in the morning and stay later into the night, allowing visitors to take in the sunset and enjoy the island's after-dark vibe, which will include dance parties, a bonfire and more.
