virgin voyage flights

Stylish interiors

Featuring spaces designed by some of the top names in contemporary interiors, Virgin Voyages offers a sanctuary at sea for the 18+ traveller, with modern, yacht-inspired aesthetics, and clever cabin technology that makes for more than just a space to live (or sleep).

virgin voyage flights

More for your money

All food is included - from refined dining to relaxed casual, any and all of the 20+ eateries onboard (as well as tips, essential drinks, unlimited WiFi, and group workouts) are free for Sailors to enjoy. And there's not a buffet in sight!

virgin voyage flights

Inspiring entertainment

Swapping classic Broadway productions for exhilarating, contemporary and immersive entertainment, Sailors have the opportunity to choose from a festival-like lineup of shows and happenings developed by the world’s most-talked-about producers, directors, choreographers and artists. 

virgin voyage flights

Wellness at sea

Expect a Virgin-style makeover to cruise spa and fitness programming. Whether Sailors are into high-intensity workouts, deep breaths in search of nirvana, or if they pay for a gym membership but never use it – Virgin Voyages provide spaces to care for themselves in whichever way works best for them. 

Why cruise with Virgin Voyages?

Not wanting to get shipped off with a boat-load of children? While we cater for the young at heart, Virgin Voyages offer strictly adult-only cruises. Sure, the little ones would probably love life at sea, but we want you to discover your inner child – not have to look after one.

The cabins on Virgin Voyages Lady Ships stand out for their flexible furnishings, upgraded bathrooms, and sensory mood lighting, creating comfy quarters that are way more than just a place to crash. Award-winning Walter Knoll, who’s designed thoughtful and sustainable furniture for over 150 years, is responsible for specially engineering and handcrafting our transformative Seabed in Germany. Sailors can enjoy their cabin in two distinct ways, as a place to revel or a place to relax.  A luxurious loungey space transforms into an expansive bedroom with a queen size bed in one swift movement. The transformation can be executed by the sailor or by one of our crew.

Booking any suite unlocks access to Richard's Rooftop; an exclusive sun deck where elegance meets exuberance. A lavish, elaborate and members-only outdoor space for RockStar Quarters Sailors to bask under the sun or have a drink under the stars. Think VIP Rockstar service, chilled vibes, cool tunes, sophisticated loungers and being surrounded by dichroic glass casting stunning rainbow reflections through the rooftop. 

If you thought cruise food was buffets and queues – think again. Virgin Voyages have ditched buffets and pre-set dining times to bring Sailors made-to-order food and leisurely brunches from 20+ unique eateries. All the food is  included  - meaning no exclusive spots you have to pay to get into.  From Korean BBQ, pizza shops, Mediterranean mezze and Mexican restaurants through to a legendary drag queen brunch, Virgin Voyages’ 24-hour food and beverage service is always made to order with a wide selection of restaurants and dining.

No more single-use plastics is just the start of Virgin Voyages’ commitment to sustainable sailing. Newly-built, state-of-the-art and eco-friendly cruise ships use cutting-edge technology so you can concentrate on leaving your footprints in the sand and not on the planet.

Still not impressed? Virgin Voyages use Azipod propulsion technology to reduce fuel consumption by 15 per cent and has partnered with Swedish cleantech experts, Climeon, to convert heat from ship engines back into electricity, helping reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

To complement artist Toby Tinsley’s revolutionary ship design, Virgin Voyages partnered with world-renowned interior designer Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio; New York’s Roman and Williams (The Ace Hotel and the Standard Highline); Concrete Amsterdam (Citizen M and Hotel Zoku), and Softroom in London to reimagine the modern luxury cruise experience.

From the VIP rooftop, club lounge and sky rooms, which use dichroic rainbow-effect glass, through to the world’s first onboard tattoo parlour – Virgin Voyages ships boast theatrical spaces with a sense of drama and fun throughout.

The ‘Vitamin Sea’ ethos not only focuses on the wellbeing of the ocean but also that of its sailors. With a selection of onboard programmes, including sunrise and sunset yoga sessions, you’ll find more than enough things to help you detox (and retox).

If the idea of letting those abs go without a plank for a few days is enough to make you walk one, take a step inside Athletic Club. Resembling a 1920s New York sports club, sailors can hit the outdoor training zone, boxing ring and gym, or head outside to set PBs on The Runway running track.

Not quite your idea of relaxation? No problem. Redemption, the ship’s spa, will transport you to an underwater cave complete hydrotherapy pool, mud room, salt room, cold plunge pools, quartz beds and rejuvenating treatments.

From the glamourous Wake restaurant, with its high-end surf ‘n’ turf, through to Razzle Dazzle, the vegan/vegetarian restaurant and juice bar - with over 20 restaurant and dining options on board, Virgin Voyages ships cater for all tastes.

If you’re wanting to brush up on your culinary classics, The Test Kitchen is one not to miss. Foodies will love the cooking classes, mixology school and coffee labs – not to mention midnight feasts and late-night lock ins!

For a more chilled beach-club vibe, check out The Dock, serving Mediterranean small plates, salads, dips and mezzes or head to The Galley, modelled on food halls and featuring shops and food carts.

As the sun sets, you’ll probably be looking for something livelier to keep you entertained into the small hours. Signature nightclub The Manor takes inspiration from one of our original Virgin Music recording studios – make sure to pack your dancing shoes.

Finally, what better way to commemorate your time on board than by heading to Squid Ink, where tattoo artist Lou Rubino Jr has hand-picked two resident tattooists to make sure those memories never fade.

Virgin Atlantic Holidays is the only place where you can book the full Virgin Voyages package – Virgin Atlantic flights, hotels and your Virgin Voyage cruise – all in one place.

Captain Branson Takes On The Waves

You could say we’ve got a past. When it comes to travel & hospitality – whether planes, trains or spaceships – Virgin has always done things a little differently. And now with Virgin Voyages, we're marrying Virgin’s unmistakable RockStar Service and reputation for the unexpected with a yacht-like experience.

Word on the sea...

is that we’re *the* ship to be. 5-star reviews. Awarded Best New Cruise. And incredibly kind reviews.

Incredible!

"Amazing experience and best cruise I have ever been on. Exceptional food, helpful/kind staff, shows were out of this world. Definitely will only be booking with Virgin from now on!".

Great Atmosphere & Great Crew

"The Scarlet Lady is so welcoming and inclusive! They make you feel so comfortable no matter who you are and their entertainment and crew are fabulous!".

Best cruise and ship ever!

"Everyone, everything was on point. No buffet is served on this cruise. The staff is friendly and professional. Nothing is too small or large for them to deliver. There's no other ship like virgin voyages. The food…".

Excellent cruise line

"From the adult-only option all the way to food and entertainment. They did an awesome job. There was so much to do on the ship we needed more time. Will definitely be back to Virgin for our next cruise and many many more".

Our ships are floating sanctuaries you may never want to leave, but if you choose to, these cruise destinations are great excuses.

virgin voyage flights

Seek out new perspectives sailing from Miami and San Juan to ports across the Caribbean. Explore pastel-lined, cobblestone streets, or dive through vibrant coral reefs — our Miami voyages feature late-night stays at our very own Beach Club at Bimini.

virgin voyage flights

Set sail from our homeports in Barcelona, Spain and Piraeus (Athens), Greece — immersing yourself in the rich history and culture of the Med. From exploring the jewel-toned isles of Portugal to the vivacious nightlife of Croatia, sailings feature late-night stays and overnights in Ibiza or Mykonos.

virgin voyage flights

Australia & South Pacific

Uncover nature in its purest when you set sail out of Melbourne and Auckland. With incredible overnights and extended stays along the South Pacific’s top sea cities, you can now gaze into the glimmering orb above Tasmania’s capital of Hobart, then marvel at the sunrise from Sydney and Tauranga.

virgin voyage flights

Transatlantic and More

Join us on our transatlantic and transpacific journeys as our lady ships make their way from their home in the Adriatic, Mediterranean, and Caribbean to seek out the most pristine weather possible — while introducing new routes and new destinations along the way. 

Brilliant For You

Brilliant commissions.

16% commission on voyage fare is only the start. We make sure to take you to the bank with earnings on bookables like airfare, hotels, Bar Tab, Shore Things, and more. And with no NCFs, you can kiss those asterisks goodbye.

Epic Experiences

Proof is in the numbers; a 95% satisfaction score and 40% onboard rebooking rate speak to our extraordinary experience. Plus, with LetsGoBook and My Next Virgin Voyage, we ensure that your experience as our partner is just as epic.

Together For Success

Our award-winning support teams are on deck for you and your Sailors, with solutions for your sales (and sails), and guidance to set your business full speed ahead for success.

In The Know

Access to exclusive, first-hand opportunities, social media groups, webinars, events, and streamlined continued learning through Seacademy, winner of two Gold Magellan awards.

Why break the rules when you can write your own? SIR RICHARD BRANSON

virgin voyage flights

Virgin Voyages is the 'cool mom' of cruise lines — and it's only for adults. Here's what to know before booking so you're not disappointed.

  • Virgin Voyages is a playful, adults-only cruise line unlike any other. 
  • The inclusive, rockstar vibes are intoxicating, but it's not a rowdy booze cruise.
  • Savvy travelers can get sweet deals and special surprises, including free perks and secret soirées.

Insider Today

Virgin Voyages is elevated, intimate, playful, and, sometimes, a bit naughty.

The cruise line doesn't have a ton of structure or strict rules, but it's also not the best choice if you want a rowdy booze cruise .

Its cruises are somewhat unconventional and, in a way, Virgin Voyages' balance of fun and flair makes it the "cool mom" of cruises.

Here's what you need to know before booking a cruise with Virgin Voyages.

Again, this is not a typical cruise line.

virgin voyage flights

Virgin Voyages has a "come as you are" attitude, which translates to no rigid rules like set dining times or formal nights.

Unlike other cruises, its ships don't have one main dining room with strict meal times. You pick a restaurant and eat at it (but those who do crave structure can make reservations).

The ships don't have dress codes.

virgin voyage flights

With Virgin Voyages, you're not required to dress up for formal evenings or wear nice slacks to dinner.

Travelers can dress how they please, from swimsuits to smart casual to glam. The only requirement is to wear something.

Although, passengers can sunbathe topless on the sun deck.

You won't see other basic cruise staples on Virgin Voyages, either.

virgin voyage flights

Common things you find on cruises won't be found on Virgin Voyages. This includes:

Children — All Virgin Voyages cruises are 18 and older.

Buffets — Instead, the ships have food halls and multiple restaurants.

Onboard photographers — If you want photos, bring a selfie stick or ask a fellow traveler.

"Port" or "starboard" labels — The ship uses "A" and "Z" instead.

Self-service laundry — Your laundry can be done for you for a fee, though.

Towel animals — You won't find these cruise staples on your bed at night on a Virgin cruise. Turndown service is only available by request.

The schedule is pretty relaxed.

virgin voyage flights

Although many cruises will have travelers board pretty early, boarding doesn't begin with Virgin Voyages until around 2 p.m.

On disembarkation day, guests don't have to leave their cabins until about 10:30 a.m. Many other lines want you off the ship by 8 or 9 a.m.

Virgin Voyages is nearly all-inclusive and drink packages are done differently.

virgin voyage flights

With most other cruise lines, you pay for internet and specialty classes — but everyone on Virgin Voyages ships gets access to unlimited WiFi and group fitness classes.

Crew gratuities, dining, and essential drinks like soda, sparkling water, and juice are included in the booking price. There's also no fuel-supplement charge, which many cruises have.

Once you pay your cruise fare, the only things to consider are optional add-ons like excursions, cocktails, and spa services.

Instead of unlimited drink packages , Virgin Voyages uses an onboard credit system called Bar Tab. Before the trip, you buy Bar Tab credits to dip into debit-style when you buy an alcoholic or a barista-made specialty drink.

It pays to be loyal.

virgin voyage flights

Virgin Voyages has a loyalty match program called Deep Blue Extras that unlocks great bonuses, like free laundry services and extra Bar Tab funds.

Passengers who have loyalty status on lines like Carnival, Celebrity, Disney Cruise Line , Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Line , Oceania Cruises, Princess , and Royal Caribbean can basically apply to transfer their status to Virgin Voyages.

Additionally, if you're traveling with a group that books two or more cabins, you can link your bookings as part of Now We're Voyaging Together . Each cabin gets a free bottle of bubbly.

There aren't typical specialty restaurants on board, and there are many late-night eats.

virgin voyage flights

On many cruises, specialty dining will cost you extra . But, on Virgin Voyages ships, all of the 20-plus restaurants can be visited at no extra cost.

Unlike on most cruises, there are no assigned seats, and you don't have to share a table with strangers every night.

Dining times are also pretty flexible, and some eateries are open late.

Diner & Dash serves diner-style breakfasts all day, and Virgin Voyage ships have ShipEats, a 24-hour room service.

Fitness classes are fun and free.

virgin voyage flights

There are more than 10 group fitness classes offered daily, and you can take as many as you wish at no extra cost.

There are classic classes like spin and yoga, but you'll also find unique ones with bungee cords and retro-inspired aerobics.

That said, many classes fill up within hours on embarkation day. You can't book classes before boarding, so try to reserve your favorites the minute you set foot on the ship.

Scarlet Night is a big deal.

virgin voyage flights

There aren't typical formal nights on Virgin Voyages cruises, but you'll definitely want to prepare for Scarlet Night.

Each cruise celebrates it from bow to stern with festive decorations and one-night-only activities like photo booths and a pool party.

Nearly everyone on board wears red for this event, so be sure to pack some if you cruise with Virgin Voyages.

The unique entertainment is unlike anything you've seen at sea … or on land.

The nightly shows are not typical song-and-dance affairs you see on other ships. Here, you'll find everything from naughty game shows to drag performances.

Don't sleep on shows with perplexing names like "The Miss Behave Show" and "Untitled DanceShowPartyThing."

Instead of trying to understand what the performances are ahead of time, just suspend disbelief, release your inhibitions, and enjoy.

Also, be on the lookout for roving performers, including magicians and sketch artists, who appear in public venues.

Some of them even extend invites to secret gatherings. I was once invited to a 30-minute magic show in the crew bar.

Even cooler? Many Virgin Voyages ships also have tattoo parlors, karaoke lounges, and record shops.

Galactic 06 Unity landing

WASHINGTON — Virgin Galactic conducted its first suborbital mission of 2024 on Jan. 26 as the company prepares end flights of its current spaceplane.

The VSS Unity spaceplane, attached the VMS Eve mothership aircraft, took off from Spaceport America in New Mexico at 12 p.m. Eastern. Unity separated about 45 minutes later, igniting its hybrid rocket engine. The vehicle reached a peak altitude of 88.8 kilometers before gliding back to a runway landing at the spaceport at 12:56 p.m. Eastern, according to data provided by the company

The flight, called Galactic 06 by Virgin Galactic, carried four customers for the first time, along with its two pilots. Previous commercial flights had three customers on board along with a Virgin Galactic astronaut trainer.

As with some recent flights, Virgin Galactic disclosed the identities of the four private astronauts only after the end of the mission. They are Americans Neil Kornswiet and Robie Vaughn, Ukrainian-American Lina Borozdina and Austrian Franz Haider. Unity was commanded by C.J. Sturckow with Nicola Pecile as pilot.

Virgin Galactic also did not provide a webcast of the launch, as on some previous flights, instead providing updates on social media. Those updates significantly lagged behind the timing of flight activities: the post on X (formerly Twitter) announcing the landing of Unity at the conclusion was published more than 35 minutes after landing.

“The success of Galactic 06 and the company’s other commercial spaceflights in recent months only increases our confidence in the repeatability of our product and our ability to deliver a superlative experience to our customers,” Michael Colglazier, chief executive of Virgin Galactic, said in a statement.

The flight was the first since a dedicated research flight, Galactic 05 , Nov. 2. That flight was the sixth in less than six months for the vehicle, but Virgin Galactic said it would pause flights until January for an annual maintenance period.

Just a week after Galactic 05, though, Virgin Galactic announced it would soon wind down flights of VSS Unity , citing the need to conserve its cash reserves for development of its next-generation Delta class of suborbital vehicles. Those future vehicles are intended to fly more frequently and at lower costs than Unity.

Virgin Galactic said then that, after Galactic 06, it would fly Unity again on Galactic 07 in the second quarter of the year and, perhaps, a Galactic 08 mission in mid-2024. The company then plans to retire VSS Unity and shift resources into Delta-class vehicle development.

“With the production of our next-generation Delta-class ships underway, we look forward to expanding our flight capacity with testing expected to start next year and commercial service in 2026,” Colglazier said in the statement.

The company confirmed in the statement that Galactic 07 will take place in the second quarter and fly a researcher along with private astronauts. It did not provide other details about the flight.

Disembarkation day-How does it work on Virgin?

We are going to be flying home out of Ft Lauderdale airport and I'm trying to estimate a good time to book a flight.  We are supposed to be back in Miami around 6:30 am Saturday morning.  How long does it take to get off the ship?  Can you carry you own luggage off and leave earlier like you can on Royal Caribbean?  Any information would be appreciated.

Yes you can carry it off on your own as soon as customs clears the ship. If you have an early flight do not put your luggage out at night before. Carry it off.

Good to know.  We haven't booked the flight yet.  I'm still trying to figure out getting back and forth to Ft Lauderdale airport, where to stay the night before the cruise and all of that stuff.  I'm probably not going to book the flight until 1 or 2pm that day.  I guess we can just Uber up there if I can't find a shuttle.

1 or 2pm should be fine, and you should even have time for a leisurely breakfast at razzle dazzle or the wake before getting off the ship (you also don't need to bring your luggage to breakfast, as you don't need to be out of the rooms until after 10am).  debarkation is only a problem when people book 9 or 10am flights, seeing the 6:30am arrival time and expect to be able to get off and through customs at 6:30.

Thanks to the new Brightline Trains, you can also consider flying out of Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach if they have better fares.

For our cruise later this month, we're flying into FLL, and back home via PBI.

There was a considerable price difference, and we like to spoil ourselves one last time by booking first-class.

With the Brightline app, you can pre-book a car to meet you at the cruise port to take you to the Miami station.

He booked a ticket for a Virgin Galactic flight to space. The trip left him speechless.

Ron rosano stands among a select few civilians who have reached the stars aboard a virgin galactic spacecraft after the company began offering regular commercial flights in august..

virgin voyage flights

As Neil Armstrong took humanity's first steps on the moon in 1969, an eager 9-year-old Ron Rosano watched from 238,900 miles away while vacationing with his parents in California.

Glued to the small television screen in the common area at a mountainous resort, Rosano watched a news broadcast as the Apollo 11 landed on the moon and Armstrong later stepped out of the lunar module to walk on its surface.

Even then, the historic moment left an indelible mark on a boy who would spend his life gazing up at the skies, wishing he could himself transcend his earthly bonds and exist among the cosmos .

“To see that and then go outside and look up at the moon and think to myself, 'Wow there’s two guys walking up around there, how did that happen?'” Rosano said, "That’s been a huge inspiration throughout my life.”

But Rosano never really thought that venturing to space was within reach. After all, hadn't Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins and the multitude of U.S. astronauts since trained extensively before exploring the final frontier?

In 2004, those possibilities changed when Rosano heard that Virgin Galactic , the spaceflight company founded by billionaire Richard Branson, was selling tickets to space for regular civilians with deep pockets. He booked his own cosmic passage in 2010, recognizing that even though his journey to space was likely still years away, it sure beat never.

Rosano now stands among a select few civilians who have reached the stars aboard a Virgin Galactic spacecraft after the company began offering regular commercial flights in August. The flight window for Virgin Galactic's sixth commercial spaceflight opens Friday .

“For most of my life, it was always military test pilots or incredibly high achievers in medicine and science," Rosano told USA TODAY in a phone interview from his home in Muir Beach, Calif. "It's the dream of a lifetime."

Peregrine lunar lander: Navajo Nation 'relieved' human remains didn't make it to the moon. Celestis vows to try again.

Rosano recalls gazing at Earth from Virgin Galactic craft

After more than a decade of waiting, Rosano finally got his chance to journey to the edge of space last year at 63 years old.

Rosano, who co-owns and manages his family’s property management company, launched in October aboard "Galactic 04." Once Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo reached 54 miles above Earth’s surface, Rosano and two other customers spent a few weightless minutes marveling at our planet from a vantage point few get to experience.

Prior to liftoff, Rosano and the others spent three days training in New Mexico to familiarize themselves with zero gravity movement and the equipment they’d be wearing.

But nothing could prepare him for the transformative moments that awaited him in low-Earth orbit, which is exactly what Rosano had longed for.

“Let the experience bring to you whatever it may bring,” Rosano said he told himself. “You don’t know what you’re going to take out of it.”

Once in space, Rosano gazed upon mountain rages, white sands and the thin blue line of Earth’s atmosphere. In that moment, Rosano was struck by the realization that all living beings exist within that line, which is all that stands between life on earth and the cold dark void of the universe.

"I knew it was there, I've talked to astronauts and that’s always one of the most popular things you see, but still I was just transfixed by it," Rosano said, "It’s a vibrant, vivid electric blue that’s got a sense of aliveness in it.”

As for seeing Earth from afar, Rosano was quite literally at a loss for words: "It’s really kind of indescribable,” he said.

The entire trip took a little more than an hour before the spaceship landed like a regular aircraft at SpacePort America in the New Mexico desert. Once back on the ground, Rosano was greeted by his wife and the five children they have from previous marriages, all of whom were there to support him.

The dawn of the commercial space age

Virgin Galactic's ticketed flights helped usher in the dawn of the commercial space age in 2023 when the company finally began offering its long-awaited flights.

Tickets were $200,000 when Rosano purchased his in 2010 for a flight aboard one of Branson's rockets, but have since climbed to $450,000 .

The company, as well as its competitors like Blue Origin, are expected to continue selling tickets to wealthy customers who crave the experience of a few minutes of weightlessness – coupled with a view of Earth that can't be beat.

While Virgin Galactic's sixth civilian customer mission is expected this month, Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin  will likely resume civilian flights at some point in 2024 after  a successful uncrewed science mission  in December.

Even the International Space Station has opened its doors to private astronauts who visit to do scientific experiments.

As early as this month, the first all-European commercial astronaut crew will embark for the famed outpost as part of Houston-based company  Axiom's third mission  to the station.

And last August, NASA itself teamed up with Elon Musk's SpaceX to begin offering  a commercial crew program  ferrying trained astronauts to the ISS for science missions. The eighth crew  is targeted to launch  no earlier than mid-February.

Will spaceflight become accessible for more people? Rosano hopes so

For Rosano, who has spent years recording human suborbital flights for his  Suborbital Flight Journal website, being a small part of this new era has been an honor.

Much of Rosano's life has been dedicated to educating youth about astronomy and sharing his passion for space travel.

Rosano has spent 25 years as an educator with the nonprofit Astronomical Society of the Pacific. Since 2008, he's been a NASA “solar system ambassador,” offering community presentations on Mars rovers , the James Webb Space Telescope , the Apollo Moon landings and more.

Now that he's been to space himself?

“I’m not going to see the sky the same way anymore,” Rosano said. “I’m seeing it with a lid on it, so to speak.”

Knowing that he came back from his trip forever changed, Rosano hopes that space travel becomes more commonplace – and more affordable – in the years to come.

“It was a profound experience for me to go and I'm so thrilled to have done it, but equally exciting to me is, you'll have dozens, hundreds, thousands of people going on suborbital flights in the future," Rosano said. "That will bring about positive change to how we as humans view the planet, and I’m glad to have made this possible for more people."

11 things I loved on Virgin Voyages — and 6 that I kind of hated

Summer Hull

I've rapidly gone from vacationing on shore to setting sail as a regular cruise passenger. Despite becoming a happy family cruiser in recent years, I really had no idea how I'd react to leaving my kids back home with their grandparents to step onto an adults-only Virgin Voyages ship with my husband. After all, every cruise I've previously enjoyed has been with our kids on Disney Cruise Line .

Given the kid-free policy and edgy, adult-oriented slant to cruising the line offers, I wasn't quite sure what I'd think of this sailing. While I could imagine the cruise being the best four days of my life, it also wouldn't have surprised me if it was the four weirdest days I've ever had at sea, as the line offers a drastically different take on cruising than what I'm used to.

Ultimately, our cruise ended up being somewhere in the middle, offering many highlights, plus a few downsides. Which details did I love, and which could use some work? Here are my favorite and least-favorite parts of Virgin Voyages cruises.

Hated: Boarding

I've admittedly become a bit spoiled with Disney's boarding process as a concierge passenger , so I knew this experience would be different. Still, even with that upgraded option factored out, I strongly disliked the boarding process with Virgin Voyages.

Unlike Disney Cruise Line, which permits entry into the terminal as you wait and staggers arrival times so passengers are processed faster, Virgin Voyages requires cruisers to stand outside — in my case, that meant in the Florida heat — in roped-off rows based on your time slot and wait until it's your turn to enter the terminal.

virgin voyage flights

Lines are allowed to form much earlier than the posted times suggest, causing the area to get crowded fast. We arrived at 1:25 p.m., got through the outside portion of the line at 1:57 p.m., were upstairs in the packed terminal at 2:11 p.m. and eventually walked on board at 2:39 p.m. Had we not received a Group 1 boarding pass after figuring out the wristband situation for those with status in the Virgin Voyages program , we would have boarded in a later group.

virgin voyage flights

Loved: The diversity of passengers

Despite what some initial buzz and marketing may have indicated, Virgin Voyages is not a ship exclusively full of 20- and 30-somethings.

In fact, we met and spent time with folks of every age, spanning from their 20s to their 80s. Passengers were not only extremely friendly overall, but they were diverse in pretty much every observable way.

virgin voyage flights

Maybe part of our impression stems from how starved for adult interaction we've been in the past few years, but we found everyone we met to be fabulous. The people on board truly were a highlight of the experience for us.

Hated: The cabin bathroom

Although our cabin was decent enough, one part of the space was borderline unbearable: the cabin bathroom.

Coming from Disney Cruise Line, which offers a split-bathroom layout in most cabins so you have two distinct spaces that can be used at the same time, we found this one tiny bathroom to be difficult to tolerate.

virgin voyage flights

If you're cruising solo, it's tight but workable, but if you plan on traveling with another person, know that you'll have limited bathroom space to work with. Sharing the space with someone else for days on end quickly becomes an unpleasant experience.

Loved and hated: The pools

Let's start with the good elements of the pool area.

With no kids on the ship, there are times when the main pool and hot tubs are not as busy as they would be on a typical cruise. In fact, we often had them to ourselves when visiting early in the day, during popular port days and at night.

virgin voyage flights

However, the main pool is unquestionably small for the number of passengers on board.

Although our sailing was far from full capacity, the pool deck was overcrowded during prime pool times. On sea day afternoons, expect body-to-body pool time if you're set on taking a dip.

virgin voyage flights

To get around this inconvenience, do as we did and strategically time your pool visits so you're avoiding the peak swimming hours.

Loved: The ports of call

If I never take a cruise to Nassau in the Bahamas again, it'll be fine. I have nothing against Nassau, but the destination's spread-out layout and pricey excursions make it a place we feel we've adequately experienced during previous visits.

Our time with Virgin Voyages did not include a stop in Nassau, much to our relief. I was thrilled to have Key West as a port of call on this sailing, as I've been to Key Largo but never as far south as Key West. It can be extremely expensive to visit Key West as an overnight guest, so being able to check it out without paying hotel rates was phenomenal.

virgin voyage flights

The dock is essentially in the heart of town, so I was able to walk off and do a $50 group bike tour I booked through Virgin Voyages. But even if you didn't want to do any organized activities, the heart of Key West is pretty compact. You can quickly get to a variety of restaurants, bars and noteworthy activities just blocks from the dock, so it's easy to hop off, have some fun on land and then hop back on the ship.

virgin voyage flights

My three-hour bike tour with Key Lime Bike Tours was capped off with an included slice of key lime pie at the Key Lime Pie Company, which I savored before wandering over to Conch Republic Seafood Company to have some delicious coconut shrimp. Key West was an incredibly easy-to-navigate and enjoyable port that I would happily return to again.

virgin voyage flights

Our cruise also included a stop at Bimini, a less-crowded Bahamian island that's home to Virgin Voyages' private beach club. To get to the club, all you have to do is hop on the complimentary tram at the port.

virgin voyage flights

Like Nassau, you'll find beautiful beaches here. Yet Bimini's quieter setting makes it easier to truly unwind while lounging on the soft sand and swimming in the crystal-clear water. Not to mention, the beach club's beautiful pool and tasty (complimentary) food add to the feeling of treating yourself while on vacation. What's not to love about all of that?

virgin voyage flights

Hated: The app's constant crashing

When I read complaints about Virgin Voyages' app before the cruise, I admit I may have rolled my eyes. How much can an app influence the enjoyment of your cruise?

Well, when everything from ordering room service to registering for dinner or activities is housed in that app, it turns out that it can affect you quite a lot.

When the app worked, it was useful and an excellent way to stay on top of all your bookings and daily schedule. However, when it became totally unresponsive at least a dozen times, I found myself starting to stress. It was not the feeling of total relaxation I seek while on vacation.

On several occasions, I resorted to restarting my phone in an effort to fix the problem. But much to my disappointment, my phone was not the problem. It was a widespread issue that others experienced, too, so mentally prepare for this inconvenience and set your expectations accordingly.

Loved: Most food and the lively Korean restaurant

A lot of the food and restaurants on the ship are pretty fantastic. While there were some culinary misses, for the most part we enjoyed the venues we visited.

That said, there was one restaurant in particular that deserves its own love letter: Gunbae.

virgin voyage flights

At this Korean barbecue joint, dinner is served in booths that you share with fellow cruisers. We initially thought this sounded a little weird, but we ended up thoroughly enjoying the concept, as it invites you to socialize with others while on board.

To help you get to know your seatmates, the staff organizes a drinking game for everyone to play that is both easy and fun. Once you've become acquainted, you'll dine on an array of Korean barbecue staples that are just as memorable as the atmosphere they are served in. We loved the food so much that we ended up visiting twice during our cruise.

But Gunbae wasn't the only dining venue we enjoyed. Many of the restaurants we tried served food we'd order again. Even when they didn't, the plethora of options available made it easy enough to move on to the next dish when we were less than impressed.

virgin voyage flights

Related: Virgin Voyages hopes to draw cruise newbies like me: Here's my first impression from its first sailing

Loved: The track

When I'm on the road (or at sea), I try to stay a little more active, so running above the ocean on the 1/6-mile track that goes all the way around the ship was an excellent way to start the day.

Because this is a dedicated space, you don't have to worry about bothering folks who are relaxing in nearby deck chairs as you jog by.

virgin voyage flights

For a workout beyond the track, Scarlet Lady offers a basketball court, boxing ring and outdoor area with weights, punching bags and other equipment. Additionally, passengers have access to a large indoor gym with everything from exercise bikes to a row of treadmills, should you prefer to break a sweat indoors.

You can also sign up for group workout classes. They fill up fast, so be sure you make your class reservations as soon as you board.

virgin voyage flights

Loved: The hair and nail salons

Cruise rates for Virgin Voyages include tips, meaning the listed price for a service is exactly what you'll pay. I was a big fan of this pricing system, as knowing that something really costs $59 makes it easier to stick to a budget.

Since I didn't have to factor in taxes and fees for add-ons like hair and nail services, I could easily compare the cost of these extras to what I typically spend back home. Ultimately, the rates were similar, so I decided to treat myself to a pedicure and a hair wash and blow dry while on board. Both the hair salon and the nail salon were top-notch areas, offering relaxed atmospheres and superb service by the crew.

virgin voyage flights

Hated: The spa

Like the hair and nail salons, the spa also offers an array of services that are priced to include tips. However, I found my experience at the spa to be disappointing overall.

The massage itself was OK at best. Additionally, the changing room situation was far from perfect due to the small changing rooms and lockers provided in the compact communal area.

The thermal spa area was also a letdown, as it was nearly as crowded as the pool area during popular times. Access is sold at a reasonable rate or as part of packages like the "Romance Package," so it was a busy area that lacked the tranquil, relaxing setting I'd hoped to find.

virgin voyage flights

Loved: The totally relaxed approach to cruising

With Virgin Voyages, you do not rotate through assigned restaurants, have evening photo-ops by onboard photographers while at dinner, hear frequent announcements or have strict dress codes to follow.

While you do need to make reservations for some things (most of which are not available until you board), your cruise is what you make of it at a pace that is fully yours to set, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

virgin voyage flights

Hated: The bar tab

Many fellow sailors we met were unhappy that Virgin Voyages did not offer unlimited drink packages. Disney Cruise Line doesn't have those either, so I didn't miss having something I've never tried. Still, I was not a fan of the cruise line's bar tab approach.

Prior to your cruise, you can add money to your bar tab, which results in you getting a bonus amount to spend. The concept sounds great in theory, but in practice, it was impossible to know how much you'd really spend on drinks. As a result, a chunk of our funds ended up going to waste since we couldn't transfer them to other onboard charges or a future cruise.

Loved: The new status perks

Despite encountering a few problems when it came to the execution of some of the perks we received by status matching into the new Virgin Voyages Sailing Club, overall, we found the benefits to be pretty fantastic.

By matching my Disney Castaway Club status , we were given Group 1 boarding, premium Wi-Fi, a daily $10 credit for coffee drinks, an invite to an exclusive party (with free drinks), one bag of free laundry and a free "Shake for Champagne" order, which would've otherwise cost us $95.

virgin voyage flights

All of these complimentary benefits saved us a few hundred dollars. Not to mention, it was great to go home with some clean clothes for once.

virgin voyage flights

Loved: The free onboard games

It's been a long time since I spent any measurable amount of time playing games that didn't involve my kids. But by the end of the sailing, we had our fill of all the classics, including air hockey, shuffleboard and various arcade games.

Given the diverse selection of options, we never found ourselves waiting for a machine to become available, leaving us more time for a round or two of arcade favorites like Ms. Pac-Man. And yes, these games are all included — no quarters required.

virgin voyage flights

Loved and hated: The 'Shake for Champagne' feature in the app

As previously mentioned, one of the status perks we received was a complimentary "Shake for Champagne" benefit . While I didn't fully hate the perk, as it offered free bubbly, it did have some annoying glitches.

I naively thought that when you shook your Virgin Voyages app, your order would arrive within five or 10 minutes. Since we were sitting within a few feet of a bar when we shook the app, I assumed our order would fall within this presumed arrival window.

However, the service appeared to be popular and was not coming directly from the bar, resulting in delays. It took a total of 41 minutes for the Champagne to arrive. And while you wait, there are no real-time updates on the app, so it's impossible to guess how long delivery will take.

Once the bubbly was brought to us, it more than hit the spot, so if you don't mind a wait, definitely give it a try.

virgin voyage flights

Loved: The price

We booked this cruise because we wanted an affordable adult getaway. Unlike other kinds of vacations involving flights, hotels and even meals, cruises tend to be more budget-friendly , as many of your expenses are covered by the cruise fare.

For example, the sea terrace room we booked for this four-night sailing from Miami to Key West and Bimini cost us $1,400 — or $175 per person, per night.

virgin voyage flights

Yes, some of your alcohol will add to that total, but you can often get a drink credit included with your booking. Plus, you may have opportunities to partake in special gatherings with free alcohol, such as the sailaway party. Even if you don't, you'll find that drink prices on board are far more reasonable than they are at most resorts, as many drinks cost between $6 and $10.

Had we stayed in Miami at a decent hotel and gone out for meals or ordered room service for four nights, we would have likely spent way more than $1,400 . Factor in our visits to other beach destinations, and it's safe to say our out-of-pocket costs would've soared past what we spent on this cruise.

virgin voyage flights

If you want to save more, people who sail with Virgin Voyages in November 2022 get a $300 drink credit for each cabin. Plus, you can get a discount of up to 50% using a code from the Bilt program.

Bottom line

There's no denying that Virgin Voyages does things a bit differently. From its bar tab concept to its emphasis on socializing with other sailors, the cruise line offers many aspects that you'll likely love and others you may hate.

We loved far more things than we didn't, which helped us feel like we got our money's worth. In fact, we were so impressed with what we experienced on board that I happily put down a deposit for a future cruise. Since I locked in that next sailing before our first one ended, we'll receive an even larger discount and more inclusions next time around.

As long as you go into your cruise knowing that there may be a few hiccups along the way, odds are you'll have a fun time full of memories you'll cherish for years to come.

Food and Drinks

Taking a cue from Norwegian Cruise Line, Virgin Voyages offers the utmost dining flexibility. The cruise line provides a variety of complimentary dining options onboard Scarlet Lady .

In fact, you can enjoy 20+ eateries for no additional cost. With no main dining room, no set dinner times, and no up-charge specialty restaurants, Virgin Voyages has revolutionized the whole dining experience on a cruise ship.

Complete Guide to What's Included on Virgin Voyages

From casual options to elegant dining experiences, sailors have the ability to dine whenever they want, wherever they want for no additional cost.

The Wake offers upscale steak and seafood options, while Pink Agave serves Mexican favorites. In addition, there’s the Test Kitchen which is a cooking lab with an experiental tasting menu, Gunbae which is a lively Korean BBQ, and Extra Virgin which is an Italian trattoria.

Though, if you want to ensure that you can dine at all of these international venues, we do recommend making reservations before your cruise.

There is also the Galley food hall, the Pizza Place, and other locations serving snacks around the ship.

On Virgin Voyages, all cruise fares also include basic beverages. There is no additional fee for soda, still and sparkling water, non-pressed juices, drip coffee, and tea. However, alcoholic beverages and premium coffee from the Grounds Club will cost extra.

Onboard Activities

With a focus on well-being, Virgin Voyages offers several ways to stay active onboard Scarlet Lady. The B-Complex gym offers your traditional cardio and strength training equipment in addition to spin classes.

In addition, the Athletic Club is an outdoor workout space. This area features a training zone with a boxing ring, a basketball court, outdoor yoga, a halo-like jogging track, and a well-being pool.

What's Included on Virgin Voyages

The best news is that all of this, as well as group fitness classes, are all part of what’s included in Virgin Voyages.

There’s also a traditional pool deck which is a hub for sea day fun.

Further, The Manor is Virgin Voyages signature nightclub, and The Social Club features tabletop games. Of course, there are some other traditional cruise activities like trivia that are complimentary too.

Nightly Entertainment

In keeping with its theme of throwing all the cruise rules out the window, Virgin Voyages takes entertainment to the next level offering alternative “happenings”, or pop up performances, around the ship. So, you’ll never know “what to unexpect onboard”!

The Red Room is the transformational main theater. This venue can take on different configurations to allow for completely different experiences throughout the cruise.

What's Included on Virgin Voyages

You won’t find Broadway-style shows here though. Instead, the main theater shows on Virgin Voyages are unlike anything you have ever experienced on a cruise. The two main shows on Scarlet Lady include Duel Reality and UNTITLED DANCEPARTYSHOWTHING. 

You can also expect to find DJs spinning top hits both onboard the ship and at the Beach Club at Bimini. Not to mention, there is the Never Sleep Alone adult-themed show and several pool parties. There is even Scarlet Night, so be sure to pack a touch of red.

Basic WiFi is part of your cruise fare on all Virgin Voyages itineraries. The internet can be accessed from your personal devices in your cabin as well as all public areas. WiFi will also work while at the Beach Club on Bimini.

This WiFi is sufficient for checking emails and social media, so you can share all the highlights of your voyage at no additional charge! Keep in mind that internet connectivity and speed will vary depending on location. Also, be sure to keep your device in airplane mode so you do not incur cellular charges while at sea. 

Sailors can choose to upgrade to premium WiFi for an additional charge for faster speeds and streaming. On our cruise, this upgrade was only $10 per day and worked nearly as well as internet on land.

While most cruise lines, even luxury lines like Viking, automatically add a daily service charge to your shipboard account, Virgin Voyages does not.

What's Included on Virgin Voyages

All cruise fares include gratuities/tips, even on services such as spa treatments.

Of course, you are always welcomed to provide additional gratuities for exceptional service to your cabin attendant, waitstaff, bar servers, etc.

What’s Not Included in Your Cruise Fare

While cruises with Virgin Voyages do provide a great vacation value, not everything will be covered in the cruise fare. There are other amenities that can be purchased if cruisers choose to do so.

Thermal Suite and Spa

For cruisers seeking the ultimate redemption, you can pay for access to the ship’s thermal suite. Day passes are available which include unlimited access to the facility for the day ($70 per person on our cruise).

What's Included on Virgin Voyages

Sailors can enjoy the heated stone loungers, a therapy pool, hot tub, sauna, steam room, salt room, and more.

Of course, other enhancements like massages and facials will also cost additional fees, as will manicures, pedicures, and other salon services.

Tattoo Parlor

Yes, Virgin Voyages has a tattoo studio at sea. Squid Ink features resident tattoo artists that can provide lifelong memories of your trip. Sailors can choose from featured designs for a set price or get a quote for custom designs.

Guests can also get body piercings or permanent makeup treatments at this shop for additional fees.

If this is your thing, make sure to book an appointment as soon as you board the ship, as it does fill up quickly.

Shore Excursions

Virgin Voyages will transport you to several exciting ports of call. Unfortunately, shore excursions are not part of the cruise fare. Sailors can book these tours and additional experiences through the cruise line or through third party retailers for additional costs.

Shore excursions can range from inexpensive walking tours to several hundreds of dollars for unique experiences. These prices are also very dependent on destination, with Caribbean and Bahamas tours usually being cheaper.

Alcoholic and Some Non-Alcoholic Beverages

While Virgin Voyages includes basic bevvies, all alcoholic drinks and some non-alcoholic drinks will cost an additional fee. Further, the cruise line does not currently offer drink packages.

What's Included on Virgin Voyages

If you want to enjoy a cocktail from one of the master mixologists on the ship or a brew from the Draught Haas, you will need to pay. Additionally, if you shake for champagne or want to enjoy your favorite latte or nitro cold brew from the Grounds Club, this will cost an additional fee as well.

The good news is that the cruise line is currently running a promotion for sailors who pre-pay money towards their bar tab.

Remember, sailors are also welcome to bring two 750mL bottles of wine per cabin in carry-on bags.

Other Add-Ons

Like all cruise lines, any additional onboard shopping or gaming in the casino will all be at your own expense. Whether you want to see if Lady Luck is on your side or purchase some Scarlet Lady swag from the retail shops on High Street, it will cost you money.

Transportation to and from the cruise port will also be above and beyond the standard cruise fare unless you are staying in a Mega RockStar suite.

I heard that the Gaming arcade is also free on Virgin Voyages…is it true on your voyage aboard Scarlet Lady

There are video games such as Super Mario, Donkey Kong, Pong and more as well as Air Hockey that are all free to play. There are also board games available, although some only while staffed.

What were the demographics on your voyage? Median age – target market?

Royal carribean is much Better st cruiseing and a lot less costly than your ship. Better food also, not bone marro, think i have cancer while eating

I just got off Royal Caribbean. We will never sail it again. Food was horrible, everything had an up charge, drink package was a waste of money…..we are looking forward to a more Adult friendly cruise. Booked for Virgin 8 night and can not wait!!!!!!

You cannot compare RCL with Virgin Voyages… It’s a totally different experience and I think Virgin is WAAAAY better than RCL on every level. No kids, amazing food options, and nicer entertainment. Will never cruise with Carnival or RCL again after Virgin Voyages.

Yes, there is an arcade that has several retro games

Your ships look amazing, so all in all the cruise price is just cabin, food, some soft drinks tea coffee, and tips. No air fare included and you don’t do a drinks package . As you mentioned in line with Norwegian who we have sailed with a couple of times until we found marella where All Inclusive means exactly that with an upgraded drinks package for luxury brands . This is our preferred company because of this no extras to worry about. Shame they look amazing

We have been frequent cruisers on Princess Cruise Lines, and have introduced several of our friends and family to the joys of cruising because of our experience with Princess. But we are very intrigued by the interesting and innovative variations being offered by Virgin Voyages. We are particularly interested in booking a balcony cabin on the upcoming cruise from Barcelona to Miami on October 16, 2022. Your cabin rates are very attractive, but we are wondering if Virgin is offering any special airfares from the East Coast to Barcelona? We would be traveling from New Bern, NC to Barcelona to meet the ship…and flying back home to NC from Miami. We are hoping to be to able fly Economy Premium for the transoceanic portion of this trip. Looking forward to hearing what you can offer. Thank you for your assistance!

Virgin Galactic completes 11th successful spaceflight

Virgin Galactic astronauts on-board the Galactic 06 spaceflight

Virgin Galactic has completed its first spaceflight of 2024 – its 11th mission to date. Today’s Galactic 06 flight marked the first time all four seats aboard VSS Unity were occupied by private astronauts.

Michael Colglazier, CEO of Virgin Galactic, said: “Today the incredible team at Virgin Galactic supported another successful mission and delivered an unforgettable experience for four new astronauts. The success of Galactic 06 and the Company’s other commercial spaceflights in recent months only increases our confidence in the repeatability of our product and our ability to deliver a superlative experience to our customers. With the production of our next-generation Delta-class ships underway, we look forward to expanding our flight capacity with testing expected to start next year and commercial service in 2026.”

Onboard Galactic 06 were:

Astronaut 023 – Ukrainian Lina Borozdina, who is resident in Nevada, USA, and the first Ukrainian woman to fly to space

Astronaut 024 – Robie Vaughn from Texas, USA

Astronaut 025 – Franz Haider from Austria, becoming the second person to fly to space from that country

Astronaut 026 – Neil Kornswiet from California, USA

Virgin Galactic's Galactic 06 crew

The launch was watched from the ground at Spaceport America by more than 150 guests alongside Virgin Galactic’s team. VSS Unity was commanded by C J Sturckow, with pilot Nicola Pecile. Michael Masucci commended mothership VMS Eve, joined by pilot Dan Alix.

Galactic 06 in-flight facts:

Take-off time: 10:00 am MT

Altitude at release: 44,493 ft

Apogee: 55.2 miles

Top speed: 2.98 Mach

Landing time: 10:56am MT

Virgin Galactic’s next mission, expected in the second quarter of 2024, will include both a researcher and private astronauts. Head to Virgin Galactic to learn more.

Virgin Galactic's sixth commercial spaceflight was a success.

Virgin Galactic just launched its sixth commercial spaceflight.

That mission, called Galactic 06 , sent four private passengers to suborbital space and back, among them the first Ukrainian woman ever to reach the final frontier. 

"Welcome back to Earth, #Galactic06! Our pilots, crew and spaceship have landed safely at Spaceport America, New Mexico," Virgin Galactic said in a post on X shortly after touchdown today.

Related: Virgin Galactic launches researchers to suborbital space on 5th commercial flight (video)

As that post noted, Galactic 06 flew from Spaceport America , in southwestern New Mexico. Virgin Galactic's carrier aircraft, VMS Eve, lifted off from the site around noon EST (1700 GMT; 10 a.m. local time), with the four-passenger space plane VSS Unity under its wings.

Eve dropped Unity at an altitude of about 45,000 feet (13,700 meters), at which point the space plane ignited its rocket motor and headed up to suborbital space.

Galactic 06's passengers experienced a few minutes of weightlessness and got to see their home planet against the blackness of space before coming down to Earth for a runway landing at Spaceport America about 90 minutes after liftoff. (Virgin Galactic did not livestream the mission; it posted updates on X during the flight.)

Virgin Galactic didn't reveal the passengers' identities in the leadup to Galactic 06, giving only their home nations and/or states. One is from Texas, one is from California, one is an Austrian and the other hails from Nevada and Ukraine, the company said.

We got their names today : Lina Borozdina, Franz Haider, Neil Kornswiet and Robie Vaughn. Borozdina became the first Ukrainian woman to reach space, according to Virgin Galactic. 

Commander C.J. Sturckow and pilot Nicola Pecile flew VSS Unity today, and Michael Masucci and Dan Alix were at the controls of VMS Eve.

🌌 Greetings from space! Huge congratulations to 023, 024, 025, and 026! #Galactic06 pic.twitter.com/hGfDfDb2SX January 26, 2024

 —   How Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo passenger space plane works (infographic)

Galactic 06 was Virgin's first mission of the year, and one of the final flights for Unity, if all goes according to plan. The company has said that it will soon retire the space plane, which has conducted all Virgin spaceflights to date, to focus on its forthcoming " Delta class " vehicle.

Each Delta plane will be able to fly up to twice per week, according to Virgin representatives. The first Delta vehicle is on track to start test flights in 2025, and the company wants it to begin commercial operations the following year.

Virgin Galactic has a competitor in the suborbital space tourism industry — Blue Origin , Jeff Bezos' aerospace company, which takes people and payloads aloft with a rocket-capsule combo called New Shepard.

New Shepard recently returned to flight after suffering a failure during an uncrewed research mission in September 2022. The vehicle hasn't carried people since August 2022.

Tickets to ride the six-passenger Unity currently cost $450,000. Blue Origin hasn't revealed its ticket prices.

Editor's note: This story has been corrected to state that a seat to fly with Virgin Galactic currently costs $450,000, rather than $400,000. VSS Unity also currently seats four passengers, not six, as originally stated.
