We knew that Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Voyages would be refreshingly different and, after its first season in 2021, the reviews are nothing short of stellar. The newly-built ships have been designed exclusively for adults with innovative cabins, hip entertainment, a spa, 20 eateries without a single buffet, overnight port calls plus a sexy private beach club in the Bahamas.
Step on board this new cruise line’s first ship, Scarlet Lady, and you will be in no doubt that a whole new experience awaits – one conceived for adult couples and solo travellers who wouldn’t normally consider a cruise. We love her unique style, vibrant energy and cool vibe, the fun and friendly crew and the wide choice of three-, four- and five-night cruises in Europe and the Caribbean.
The sleek and contemporary cabins and suites are designed for daytime lounging, transforming into the comfiest of nests when it’s time to sleep. The tech is a step ahead of the competition and we especially love the balcony cabins and whopping Rock Star suites.
Feeling peckish? There are no set times for any of the 20 eateries – you can drop in where you want, when you want and eat whatever takes your fancy from tacos to ramen, steaks and seafood to Korean BBQ, veggie treats to Bento boxes.
World-renowned mixologists and sommeliers have created cocktails and innovative wine lists that are as delicious as they are well-priced.
Big names from the worlds of music and performance arts have created a unique mix of immersive live performances – whether you want to dance through the night or be captivated by cabaret and high-wire artists.
Wellness is taken to a whole new level too – join in a range of complimentary HIIT and relaxation classes from outdoor boxing to Hatha yoga, work out and stretch in the gym areas, take a run around the outdoor jogging track and ease out your mind and muscles in the Redemption Spa.
All food and ‘Basic Bevvies’ soft drinks are included in the price, as are tips, WiFi, group fitness classes and all entertainment.
We have negotiated some tempting deals and pride ourselves on offering the best prices and knowledgeable service.
