Feb 11. Anyone looking for the best Virgin Voyages cruise itinerary will want to start with its sailings to the Bahamas and Caribbean.
Short sailings to The Bahamas and Caribbean:
Virgin Voyages got its start offering short sailings to the Bahamas and Caribbean out of Miami, and that’s still the line’s biggest cruise destination focus. In fact, one of Virgin Voyages’ two vessels currently in operation, the 2,770-passenger Scarlet Lady, does nothing but short sailings to the Bahamas and Caribbean out of Miami.
Longer sailings to the Bahamas and Caribbean:
Initially, Virgin Voyages only offered shorter sailings of five or fewer nights to the Bahamas and Caribbean. But its list of itineraries in the regions is now peppered with longer voyages of six to eight nights.
Another top destination for Virgin Voyages is the Mediterranean because the cruise line is massively expanding the number of European departures it’s offering this year, thanks to the arrival of its third vessel, Resilient Lady.
Australia and New Zealand:
The coming year will bring the first Virgin Voyages sailings to Australia and New Zealand on the line’s new Resilient Lady. After spending its initial summer cruising in the Mediterranean, the vessel will reposition to Australia in December for a series of 11 sailings that range from five to 14 nights.
The expansion of Virgin Voyages sailings in the Bahamas and Caribbean this year means the line is sending more ships back and forth between Europe and North America than in the past. That’s creating an expanded lineup of so-called «repositioning» cruises across the Atlantic that offer lots of sea days.
Virgin Voyages is still a relatively small line with just two ships, and that means it can’t offer too big a range of itineraries. But with more vessels joining its fleet over the coming year, its destination offerings are growing.
