If you are looking for an upscale, chic, yet laid back, fun, adult only cruising experience, Virgin Voyages is perfect for you! We just disembarked the Scarlet Lady and cannot wait to book our next cruise with Virgin Voyages

As I sit in the American Airlines Admiral Club Lounge sipping a mimosa, I am overwhelmed with all the fun and amazing memories these last five days have given us. I sailed with my husband, my brother-in-laws and two friends. My brother-in-law, who is quite particular, was ready to book his next Virgin Voyages cruise by the middle of the Sail Away Party

So, what makes Virgin Voyages so spectacular? First, the crew is so welcoming and joins in all the fun from the moment you step on board. The ship is so clean, shiny, and beautiful. It is also organized in the perfect way and so easy to navigate. I was never overwhelmed with finding my way around. Each restaurant has an intimate feeling. You do not even realize you are dining on a cruise ship. Our favorite restaurants were The Wake, Extra Virgin and Test Kitchen. The food was some of the absolute best I have ever had on board a ship. The Galley is a glamorous food court that has just about any type of food your heart desires, almost around the clock, from cheeseburgers, to breakfast food and ramen. 

The entertainment is almost everywhere, every night. The Duel Reality show in The Red Room had it all – storytelling, athleticism, acrobatics, and dance. The performers defy gravity and take your breath away. It is an exciting 55-minute show that should not be missed. Dance parties, drag shows, comedy shows, magic shows, karaoke, trivia – You can find it all aboard Virgin Voyages.

Scarlet Night takes the entertainment to another level! Prior to sailing, guests are notified to prepare for Scarlet Night by packing a red outfit in their luggage. All guests were wearing red and gathered at 11:00pm at the Aquatic Club pool on Deck 15, for a show like no other. Choreographed dancing, along with a stunning singer, a light show, and some stunts by the Duel Reality performers made for a night we will never forget. At the end of the performance, some guests, including myself, hopped in the pool to dance and sing the night away. Other more daring guests took a leap into the deep end, fully clothed!

As a travel agent who sells a lot of Virgin Voyages cruises, I was invited to an exclusive private tour and Q & A session of Richard’s [Branson] Rooftop. Richard’s Rooftop is reserved only for guests staying in suites on board. Richard’s Rooftop is a large, extra luxe area with a private bar, many loungers, cabanas, two jacuzzi tubs and incredible views. It was incredible!

We were on the Dominican Daze itinerary, which stopped at Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic and Bimini, Bahamas. We had a great time strolling the streets of Puerto Plata, eating, drinking, and shopping. Most Virgin Voyages Caribbean sailings stop at The Beach Club at Bimini, which is exclusive for guests sailing on Virgin Voyages. A complimentary shuttle takes guests from the ship to The Beach Club and you have whatever kind of day you want – You can swim in one of the two pools, play volleyball in the pool, relax in a hammock, or on the gorgeous beach. Food is also included on the island and there are bars to purchase alcoholic drinks. The Beach Club is gorgeous, fun, and relaxing. I did not want to leave!

Everyone on board is there for one reason – To experience an adult only, upscale vacation and have fun!  The vibe of Virgin Voyages allows everyone to be who they are, let loose and make the most of your trip! I loved the diversity on the ship – Everyone was so happy!  It was a utopia!  We will definitely be sailing again, and I would love to help you experience all Virgin Voyages has to offer as well!
