Dirty, Poor Service and Painfully Slow

This cruise claimed to be everything and have everything, re imaging the world of cruising with a brand you could trust... What a let down. The ship itself is modern but dirty, beds unchanged, walls with drinks splashed up them, toilet roll all over the place, lemon and limes clogging up the pool filters and bathrooms that need a scrub. Unchanged beds, dirty balconies and dirty plates stacked ...

Atrocious! Bless some of the staff, they really tried but even they were loosing the will. Dirty toilets, filthy floors, toilet roll everywhere. I was in a whirlpool and was joined by limes, lemons, pineapple and a plastic cup. The fruit was still there 3 days later and the pools were not clean. The room had screws on the floor, rubbish in the bin and hairs all over the table. And this was ...

This was by far one of the best vacations I have ever taken. As a start, not having kids around made my trip enjoyable and relaxing. The staff onboard is so friendly and they constantly go out of their way to make sure your experience is great each day -- and I wasn't even in one of the most expensive cabins (aka Rockstar). The stops on the Irresistible Med are INCREDIBLE. We got to explore ...

Starting with the best thing first....the crew! I have never encountered such happy, helpful, proud people working on a cruise ship or any other service industry location. From the cabin stewards to the waiters to the bartenders to everyone else. They were amazing and they really made a huge difference in the experience! Second best thing was the room. We stayed in a Rockstar Suite, and it ...

I decided to 'Set Sail the Virgin Way' onboard Virgin Voyages Valiant Lady with nine of my closest friends and we had the best week of our lives. Halfway through the cruise, we decided to book a future Voyage next Summer in Greece! We decided to sail with Virgin Voyages based on the reviews from this site. One of the many reasons why I fell in love with Virgin Voyages was their food and ...

I am full of praise for the approach that Virgin have taken to cruising, a real breath of fresh air. I am not new to cruising, prior to lock down my wife and I cruised regularly and enjoyed hospitality with P&O, RC, Princess and Celebrity. I would not hesitate to cruise with any of them again, but I actually look forward to booking my next cruise. Information prior to our trip was excellent, ...

We have sailed on Valiant Lady once before, on the inaugural sailing down to the Canaries in March. As many of the reviews have alluded to, it was blighted by several issues, not all of which were Virgin Voyages fault. Despite these issues, we thoroughly enjoyed that voyage and were very pleased to be offered a 'free' Mediterranean Cruise in compensation. Based around the itineraries on offer we ...

I chose this VV cruise for my 60th birthday celebration with 2 long-time friends because it is an adults only cruise. The ship was impeccably clean, the staff were almost all absolutely amazing and our Brilliant Suite was very large and fit all three of us comfortably. The only negative experience was on the morning we arrived. Our flight arrive in Barcelona at 6:30 am so we were at the port by ...
