Lots of Style, Lacks Substance

Review for Valiant Lady to Europe - British Isles & Western

I can only speak from my own experience of the ship. Your mileage may be different. On this particular sailing of Valiant Lady, only 600 passengers were on board. I sailed solo and I'm a 48 year old man. As a loyal Virgin Atlantic customer and also regular cruiser, I decided to try Virgin Voyages on a 5 night sailing on the Valiant Lady from Amsterdam to Portsmouth. From the moment I boarded ...

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 ...

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 ...

A quieter and more refined version of Saga

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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, ...

Quirky, definitely!

Curiosity led us to book this cruise - this ship is certainly not directed at our age group, but as veteran cruisers since the mid-1970's (we started pretty young) we couldn't resist a peak at a cruise ship aimed specifically at non-cruisers. The ship looked huge, and rather ugly, but is in fact smaller than some of the super-cruisers and only takes 2750 guests - or 'Sailors' as the hype ...

Great cruise but shoddy entertainment

A 3 night cruise on the Scarlet Lady sailing from Portsmouth. For those experienced with cruising and expecting lots of Cruise Director announcements and high quality entertainment, then this isn’t a cruise for you! It’s a lot more relaxed style of cruise where you find out what’s on via the App and do it as you want. Crew uniform is also informal and relaxed. The food is excellent, for my ...

Me and my partner have never thought of giving a cruise a go as we didn’t think it was for us until we went onto the scarlet lady. The cruise itself was beautiful, the staff were so friendly and nothing was ever to much for them. The food was outstanding, from the food in the galley to the test kitchen. Our rooms were beautiful, we had a balcony with a hammock overlooking the sea what we took ...
