(PRESS RELEASE)_MIAMI, FL - December 14, 2023 - Fresh off its epic Australia debut – which included Sir Richard Branson scaling the Sydney Harbour Bridge – and winning Cruise Critic’s best new cruise ship of the year for 2023, Virgin Voyages is inviting Sailors to experience the world’s No. 1 cruise brand for themselves. As Virgin’s newest travel company – one that has already smashed industry records and regularly sees Sailor rebooking rates of more than 50% – Virgin Voyages is bringing back its most inclusive offer ever for the cruise industry’s annual wave season. The exclusively adult travel brand is also introducing 21 awe-inspiring new ports for the summer of 2025 across Iceland, Italy, Scotland, Ireland, the Caribbean and more.
Between now and Jan. 31, travelers can purchase a voyage for one Sailor and get 70% off the second Sailor, plus up to $600 USD in a Bar Tab, depending on the voyage length. Able to be used for specialty coffees, high-end, top-shelf cocktails or the brand’s signature Shake for Champagne feature with Moët delivery on demand, the Bar Tab tiers include:
In the summer of 2025, the brand will debut 21 new ports across its global fleet with highlights that include Reykjavik (Iceland), Naples (Italy), Dublin (Ireland), Istanbul (Turkey), Porto (Portugal), George Town (Grand Cayman) and Muscat (Oman) to name a few.
Next year, in addition to its signature shows like Persephone and UNTITLED DANCESHOWPARTYTHING, Virgin Voyages is bringing new laughs on-board with its LOLz Supper Club comedy show, debuting first on Scarlet Lady. Additionally, Duel Reality, the acrobatic tale inspired by fabled, star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, is making waves as one of the first cruise ship productions brought to land. Virgin Voyages and The Seven Fingers are teaming up for the show’s Boston premier this February.
Also on the docket for 2024 are not one, but three global Elevate (formerly Limitless) Voyages, a CEO-hosted Celebration Voyage, and the return of the brand’s popular Eat & Drink Festival and Wellbeing Months (January through March).
Nirmal Saverimutu, Virgin Voyages’ CEO said, “Virgin Voyages has managed to develop an incredible, award-winning reputation in just a short period of time, and it goes to show that people are craving a unique holiday with more included. Wave season is here and the best time for travelers to book a voyage with us, whether wanting a Caribbean winter escape, a Mediterranean summer adventure or going further aboard our epic voyages to Bali, Morocco or Iceland. From the world’s best ships and best food at sea, to phenomenal value with all that we include in an elevated (and kid-free environment), there’s truly nothing like a Virgin Voyages experience.”
