Virgin Voyages Cruise Reviews

Room looks nice but definitely not luxury. Furniture has an Ikea feel to it.
The Beach Club at Bimini was excellent. This is one of two large pools, with the ocean in the background where there is a nice sandy beach.
Murder on a plate! Main course at the Test Kitchen. Very good and interesting presentation.
Most of the only pool is only a few inches deep as you can see from the photo.

Great ship, great service

Review for Scarlet Lady to Caribbean - All

I went with a friend that works in the travel industry. The food was amazing and the staff was helpful and friendly. Aside from the fact that my luggage was lost until after 10pm, I thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. The Virgin App needs to be tweaked (it didn’t always work either) and there needs to be more communication about shows and services that are available on the ship. The decor and finishes ...

Adult Only Experiences & Late Night Fun

Virgin Cruise lines is like no other cruise line. This is an adult only 18+ cruise that offers adult oriented shows and entertainment. With the onboard casino, late night shows and adult themed activities. Don’t be expecting any cruise directors to be planning trivia games every hour like most cruise lines or lots of different wine, beer, liquor tastings. While there is trivia and tastings, the ...

Failure to Communicate

This was only the third cruise out of the US so I’m hoping the kinks will be worked out. Embarkation was a disaster. Many passengers (like myself) were given a boarding time in the app(EVERYTHING is done through the app). However, the app kicked our time out, or we had to delete and reinstall, either way we lost our slot and were put into the “too early waiting.” Eventually we just snuck into a ...

This new boat was by far one of the most relaxing cruises I have ever sailed. No cruise director broadcasting ever 10 minutes on the intercom, no big dining room along with dress codes, and more. The food was above average and did not taste like cafeteria food. The Mexican restaurant was our favorite specialty restaurant, the least favorite was the Korean restaurant. There are a lot of ...

Pros: Adult only; Higher quality of food and options; shows were different with very talented performers; Private Beach club in Bimini. Rooms were larger if you got a suite, and bathrooms were quite large. Electronic controls were fancy but tricky to use. Spa was good and again very talented people. Overall staff were very helpful and friendly. Ship was as quiet and smooth as any I have ever been ...

No return of unspent funds

Was curious about new ideas that were coming with this cruise. Food was excellent. Cabin was comfortable. Activity level was boring. Would not waste my time going again, any funds paid in advance but not used were forfeited. Why wouldn’t you credit to the customer for future use on another voyage. Casino minimums were too high. Table games were not plentiful. Entertainment was minimal. Most ...

The first time I heard that Virgin was going to have their own cruise line I was so excited and couldn’t wait till we could get on a boat. Would’ve been easier had it left from Galveston since we’re based in Dallas, but decided to take my wife on a surprise vacation and we flew from Dallas to Miami the day before the cruise to set sail. The check-in process, though relatively smooth, was very ...

This cruise is new and still needs a lot of work. I have had much better service on other cruise lines. I will say that the restaurants are quite good and the service in the restaurants is excellent. One of my favorite experiences has been at “The Wake” and my server was Abdul. He was excellent and made sure everything was to my satisfaction. There aren’t many activities on board and the ...

First off, Virgin Voyages needs to hold communication seminars for ALL of their employees. I have never felt so disenchanted with a cruise than I did on the Scarlet Lady. You can ask several cruise employees where something is and you will get a different answer from each one... very frustrating! We boarded the 5 night Costa Maya/Bimini cruise on 10/15/21 in Miami... once we got at the pier ...

I’ve waited a long time to step foot on this cruise. Was so excited to finally getting to sail after rebooking four times due to Covid it sucks. Food not that great. Small venues ship is sailing at 50% capacity and the limited number of entertainment options are all sold out. Everything is run by app on phone which is annoying. Drinks are expensive. I won’t be back. Give me a regular cruise ...
