Virgin has done very well in the air (remember that “Air Drake” moment?), on land and is now it is trying to achieve the same success at sea with the launch of Virgin Voyages which consists of 3 pretty impressive cruise ships.
My first experience flying with Virgin was back in 2015, between Perth, Australia and Phuket, Thailand. It was a great flight and I remember how cool it was being able to play games using the in-flight entertainment system, from my seat, against people in other seats, rows away.
Virgin Limited Edition is Sir Richard Branson’s award-winning collection of luxury retreats and hotels that celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2020. I first learned of it when I attended an African Travel Trade Show in Toronto a few years back and a rep from the South African Ulusaba Reserve Resort was onsite. I have since learned about their move into the American Hotel market and after seeing their expansion plans, wonder if maybe Canada will see one in the future.
And then there is the sea…..
Virgin Voyages had pushed back their launch by a year due to COVID-19 and finally launched in August 2021. They have 3 ships that travel to various locations. They most recently launched details of their latest cruise experience which departs from MIAMI!
5 days – Riviera Maya – Scarlet Lady
Miami -> Cozumel -> Playa del Carmen -> Beach Club at Bimini -> Miami
COST: $1800/person CAD* to $15K for the crazy VIP cabins (rates are based on double occupancy)
Food, basic drinks, wifi, tips INCLUDED!
Clearly this is not your regular cruise ship – this is for millennials & Gen Xers who want to have immersive, adult-only fun hopping around Europe, the Caribbean and across the Atlantic Ocean and only having to pack once!
