Anyone who has been on a cruise knows that the fantastic choice of food is one of the highlights of your time onboard. Virgin Voyages have taken this one step further by moving away from traditional cruise ship dining.

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.

Sea Terrace Cabin

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.

Staff Reviews of Virgin Voyages

At Iglu Cruise, we've been lucky enough to sail aboard Virgin Voyages' Scarlet Lady, Valiant Lady and Resilient Lady. Here are a few top staff reviews from 2023 sailings!

Resilient Lady

The cabin was absolutely fantastic - very spacious! The bed was big and comfortable and the hammock on the balcony was a nice bonus. All the food was excellent throughout but The Wake steakhouse and Gunbae Korean BBQ venues really stood out for the experience. Gunbae is immersive and interactive with drinking games to make friends with those on your table (great icebreaker!) while The Wake is closer to fine dining. Quizzes in the social club were varied and great fun during the day and the crew/staff were all brilliant. Scarlet Night was a great highlight as we moved around the ship and the party kept going! Shows were great too. The layout of the ship makes it never feel busy and the areas to explore keep you entertained.

Valiant Lady

In my Sea Terrace stateroom I thought the iPad to control curtains, lighting and TV was a fantastic touch. The room was also really spacious. Razzle Dazzle was my standout dining venue with incredible vegetarian offerings, and The Pizza Place for the best pizza at sea!! In terms of activities the gaming arcade was such a fun throwback, and the pool scene was always a really chilled vibe. For live entertainment the Red Room was always simply amazing and The Manor nightclub was really really fun. Absolutely loved Valiant Lady - such a relaxed, casual yet luxury vibe to the ship.

Scarlet Lady

My balcony cabin was super spacious, clean, well-equipped and had a great view. The Test Kitchen was my top pick of dining venues, with great service, creative dishes, and a really pleasant environment, and Razzle Dazzle for tasty breakfasts with a great choice of options in a jazzy space. During the day I was happy chilling around on different decks and bars as there are plenty of spaces and choices. In terms of entertainment I really enjoyed the comedy and dance performances with great costumes, singing and audience participation. To sum up I think Virgin Voyages are fantastic when it comes to the very modern technology on the ship, the great food choices, especially for healthy eaters, the wonderful crew and well arranged on-shore visits.
