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 bento boxes, pastries, and a pre-boxed grab-and-go area offering wraps and salads. There is a popsicle cart available with limited hours to grab a cool treat in the afternoon. Each unique themed area has different hours of operation and menus can be accessed through a QR code at your table. A server will come to your table to take your order. Soft drinks, teas, and coffees are self-serve and available 24 hours a day.
The Grounds Club is located next door to The Galley if you are looking for a specialty coffee for an additional charge. If you are having an ice cream craving, stop by Lick Me Till Ice Cream. The Pizza Place provides unique pizza choices or healthy salad options offering indoor and outdoor seating. The Social Club has hot dogs, popcorn, and sweet treats. This venue offers spiked milkshakes drinks with an additional charge.
Michelin-starred chefs have crafted incredible first-class menus to create the ultimate and unique dining experiences at the following specialty restaurants. Each restaurant has its own chef, wait staff, and bar. Dinner reservations can be made prior to sailing by using The Virgin Voyages Sailor app. Only one advanced dinner reservation can be made for each restaurant. Brunch reservations can only be made once onboard the ship.
