Absolutely love the ship and outdoor spaces. Food is by far the best at sea among the biggest cruise lines (I’ve been on 4 cruise lines now). I love how they make it so simple for customers and don’t nickel & dime - no tipping, no misc hidden fees, no charges for towels, bar tab, etc. Also, the adults-oriented nature is amazing - no running/screaming kids, more hip-hop music, no buffets, no water parks, lots of bars sprinkled around the ship, more night life, and more sex/adult themes incorporated into the shows.

One thing I’d recommend is booking a balcony if you can afford it, especially in warmer climates like the Caribbean. I loved sleeping in the hammock on the balcony at night, truly relaxing!

The only things I’d recommend Virgin improve are 1) having outdoor bars open later than 5 PM, 2) more hottubs/bigger pool (on future ships), 3) having fewer customers in the spa it was too packed, 4) improve table service at the outdoor Galley patio for breakfast, and 5) while I love the Test Kitchen food, they need to update the menu since it’s been the same for 3 years.

Bimini is my favorite stop on Virgin. Absolutely love the Beach Club… music and vibes are great, plus the pool, ocean, beach, and tiki bars are so much fun.
