When superyacht design and dream destinations meet, exceptional experiences ensue!
Virgin Voyages’ modern twist on luxury is making big waves. Their “Lady Ships” are Adult-by-Design boutique hotels at sea – with no kids and no ordinary experiences. With spaces designed by some of the most sought-after interior designers and architects, Virgin Voyages’ midsize ships (accommodating 2700 guests or “Sailors”) are sanctuaries at sea.
Here are 8 reasons to book a Virgin Voyages ship for your next incentive trip, corporate event, or organization’s milestone celebration:
1. Unique 4 & 5-night Caribbean Itineraries
Shorter cruises hit the sweet spot, and Scarlet Lady delivers with 4 & 5-night voyages from Miami, more extended port visits, and late-night departures. Every Caribbean itinerary includes a day and night spent at The Beach Club at Bimini, Bahamas — complete with Virgin’s signature bonfire bash under the stars.
2. Virgin’s Mediterranean Voyages
Virgin’s curated itineraries feature longer port stays and overnights in some of Europe’s most idyllic islands and hottest cities. Sailing from Virgin’s summer homeports of Piraeus (Athens), Greece, and Barcelona, Spain, Sailors can choose from a stunning selection of seven-night itineraries through the sun-drenched, azure waters of the Mediterranean.
3. More inclusions!
Every Virgin sailing includes dining at 20+ eateries (all made-to-order and with menus by Michelin-starred chefs), unlimited WiFi, non-alcoholic beverages, all gratuities, a choice of entertainment options, and all group fitness classes. More inclusions mean happier guests, and simplified budget planning means more time for you to focus on your program.
4. Unique Meeting and Group Event Venues
Virgin ships feature a variety of lounges, theaters, and restaurants that transform into unique meeting and group event venues. The largest theater can accommodate up to 435 attendees for conferences, seminars, presentations, and performances, while smaller venues (up to 75 attendees) are ideal for breakout meetings, smaller sessions, and interactive projects.
After your meetings, there are six inspiring indoor and outdoor spaces for your receptions. Sailing in the Caribbean? Virgin Voyages’ private resort, The Beach Club at Bimini, offers a stunning setting for a cocktail party they will never forget.
5. Ultimate Entertainment by Virgin
Virgin’s Lady Ships feature a vast array of exhilarating, immersive entertainment choices designed to push the boundaries of traditional entertainment at sea. A festival-like lineup of shows was developed by the world’s most-talked-about producers, directors, choreographers, and artists. With interactive dance parties, theater performances, and best-at-sea DJs, Virgin ships have something for everyone.
6. “Vitamin Sea” Wellness Program
Virgin Voyages’ “Vitamin Sea” wellness is naturally activated throughout their ships with a mix of high-energy moments coupled with relaxation and rejuvenation. There are plenty of outdoor and outward-looking workout spaces with a wide variety of complimentary group fitness classes. A secluded sun deck offers sunrise and sunset yoga with 360-degree views, while a running track encircles the ship.
7. Wine and dine at 20+ eateries
A Michelin-starred chef collective has created incredible onboard dining experiences, bringing fresh ingredients and made-to-order cooking together in unique spaces. There are more than 20 distinctive and delicious specialty eateries on Virgin Voyages ships, from steakhouses and Korean BBQ to elaborate brunches and an international food market. And all are included.
8. Sustainable Sailing
Virgin Voyages is committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050. Single-use plastics have been removed from their ships and replaced with environmentally-friendly disposables. Innovative technologies like Climeon transform heat from the ship’s engines into clean energy. The company is also offsetting its direct climate change emissions by purchasing carbon offsets.
BONUS: Perfect for a Private Ship Charter
Virgin Voyages currently has two ships sailing (Scarlet Lady and Valiant Lady) with two more on order. With 1408 cabins and suites (93% ocean view, 86% with private balcony), Virgin’s Lady Ships are perfectly sized and superbly suited for a private buyout. Imagine taking over an entire Virgin Voyages ship exclusively for your group…the possibilities are endless!
