If your vision of a cruise shore excursion is following a guide and a flag, you haven’t experienced a Virgin Voyage excursion. Virgin Voyages has taken the typical shore excursions and kicked it up a notch. The group sizes are small, and they offer experiences that are immersive by taking you off the beaten path. Virgin refers to their excursion as “shore things”. They can be booked through your travel agent or directly through the Virgin app. They are an excellent way to experience the culture and the area of each port. They give you memories to take home with you. For example, In Puerta Plata, in the Dominican Republic, I explored the jungle and mountains via a dune buggy. We had a small group of 28 people. This was a great way to explore the non-tourist area of the city. We got dirty – ok, VERY muddy riding through […]

Virgin Voyages launched their first cruise ship in the US in October 2021 and they have set the bar high for adult only cruising experiences. Virgin is different than other cruise lines for a variety of reasons. For me, it is a very laid-back environment that gives you the feel of sailing on a yacht vs a cruise ship. Again, it is adult only for anyone 18+, which provides a wonderful opportunity to reconnect. What’s included in the cruise fare? • All dining locations are included • No surprise costs at the end of your cruise and gratuities are included • Free internet onboard • Fitness classes • Soft drinks (Tea, filter coffee, non-pressed juices, water, and sparkling water, and Sodas) Dining and Lounges • The dining experience is beyond the typical cruise line with 10 different eateries all included. Menus have been created by Michelin star-rated chefs for experiences […]

When you set sail on a Virgin Voyages adult-only cruise, you will find that dining is a huge part of your sailing experience. Virgin Voyages has re-imagined cruise ship dining for their guests in very pleasing ways. You will not find buffets, large dining halls, or assigned dining times on a Virgin Voyages cruise ship. Instead, you will find more than 20+ dining options using the freshest ingredients. All food is made to order ensuring the delivery of high-quality food options throughout the ship with less waste. This cruise ship never sleeps. If you are hungry for a late-night bite, visit The Galley, where you will find an American-style diner open 24 hours serving breakfast all day. The Galley has a casual atmosphere where you can grab a quick meal at a variety of food hall-style restaurants. Food choices include soups, salads, burgers, tacos, panini sandwiches, a sushi bar with […]
