Unforgettable Destinations

One of the most exciting parts of any cruise are the destinations you visit along the way, and with Virgin Voyages you won't be disappointed.


If you want to stay in Europe, Virgin Voyages offer an array of different sailings. Without even hopping on a plane you can head to Belgium or Spain and Portugal onboard Valiant Lady from Portsmouth in 2022. When it comes to fly cruises, sail around the Mediterranean from Barcelona and enjoy an overnight onboard in Ibiza, or discover the beauty of the Greek Isles from Athens, including an overnight onboard in Mykonos. If you want to learn more about what you can do ashore, read our Virgin Voyages shore excursions blog.


For those who want to sail further afield than Europe, the Caribbean awaits. Meet your ship in Miami where you'll embark on itineraries around the Caribbean. As well as the vibrant ports of call, on these itineraries you'll also get to stop off for a night onboard at Bimini Beach Club. Virgin Voyage's very own exclusive beach resort, explore the bars, try your hand at some water sports, grab a bite to eat and relax by the pool. Once the sun sets, get ready for dance parties and bonfires.

Amongst the 20+ places to eat, some of our favourites are:

  • Vegetarian and vegan options at Razzle Dazzle
  • Steak and seafood with amazing views at The Wake
  • Hands-on dining at the Test Kitchen
  • 24-hour dining at Diner & Dash

Superyacht-style Cabins and Suites

No holiday is complete without somewhere relaxing to rest up after a fun-packed day, and no matter which cabin you choose on a Virgin Voyages' ship, you'll love spending time inside. Inspired by superyachts, no matter where you stay you'll find ultra-modern décor, mood lighting and a tv screen which you can cast films onto. Depending on which cabin you choose, you can also enjoy added extras, ranging from a record player to a hammock on your balcony.

Travelling alone? Spread out in your very own studio cabin designed just for solo sailors. Choose a Sea View cabin for spectacular ocean vistas, or a Sea Terrace for a breath of fresh air. If it's luxury you're looking for, be sure to choose a suite in the Rockstar Quarters. As well as spacious accommodation, you'll get to enjoy exclusive extras including access to Richard's Rooftop, early booking and priority access for onboard and shore activities, and even more drinks included in your cruise fare.
