The two of us went on Virgin’s new Scarlet Lady cruise for 4 nights, at sea. Checking in was poor; we did not get a precise location to go to, given that we had to go to a covid test centre. It took two hours between arrival and boarding and then they lost one suitcase which Anne found eventually as the boat was due to sail. The balcony cabin was a reasonable size but poor design with ...

Booked a Suite so expected the rockstar treatment. No VIP check in at Portsmouth and bit more like cattle class. Cabin was very well appointed but would have expected a bottle of champagne on arrival. Mini bar was either spirits or wine not both and you would have had to pay if you wanted both. For the money paid would have expected at least one free day to experience the spa. Overall not the ...

We expected different but I was surprised at what Virgin have done well but perhaps more surprised at what they did badly. First of all the App since your whole experience revolves around it functioning correctly. We were a party of 6 with a mix of IOS and Android phones and so can authoritively say the failings of the app are not down to the operating system of your phone. Everyone of us had ...

As a first time cruise for me, it had many things going for it. It was a short cruise, no children, modern decor, no gratuities. The restaurant food and service was excellent. The cabin, Sea view, was spacious and the cleaning staff very attentive. Poor them though, having to scrape the Black Soap off the hand basin each day. Not quite sure who would be purchasing some of the items on ...

This cruise was an amazing first time experience. The ship is beautiful and there’s fun shows, good self-serve entertainment and a lot of food options. The staff are super friendly and it’s nice to feel like everyone *wants* to be working here! Everyone has a smile and is super welcoming. Zoltan was great, as was Mauricio! I’d say that Virgin needs to specify their target audience, ...

I went on this weekend cruise with my sister because we always try to go away for a couple of days together each year. We had an absolute blast. The food was better than we could possibly have hoped for. Everything we ate felt like top restaurant quality and came in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Every member of staff we encountered was polite and seemed happy to be doing their job. We had dinner ...

This is not the cruise I brought

So my previous review was really good, I had no real problems or issues until today. So I brought this cruise months ago, and I've been onboard for the last 3 cruise's. Today while doing my usual routine, cocktails in the hot tub do I find out that not only as some travel agent block booked the remaining cabins, taken over the top deck around the pool for some 'private' function and then ...

Virgin Voyages “They do things differently”

Simply put virgin are putting some impressive and well designed ships into service but they might be holding themselves back with a standard statement of we do things differently. It’s great to break the old ways of cruising and the ships with inclusive all in dining is a good thing. However there are some issues with virgin being virgin: so don’t expect much sailing information or ...

As a start when sailing with Virgin Voyages, you’ll find several different references to the things traditional cruisers are used to referring to, from balcony cabins which are known as “Sea Terraces” and “Rock Star Quarters” for suite accommodations, Guest Relations is known as “Sailor Services”, and the future cruise desk is “Get Lost”. Every crew member will welcome you with “Ahoy” and you are ...

The Covid measure are solid and reassuring . Inevitably the process causes some anxiety, but this is not on Virgin Voyages. They are legally obliged to protect their sailors. The minute you are on board the stress stops and the party starts. To the novice sailor/cruiser the choice seems enormous. Bars, restaurants, gyms, venues, spas and the most helpful and polite staff I’ve met. From the ...
