- RAZZLE DAZZLE

All the meals in Razzle Dazzle are vegan/vegetarian and will be prepared from consciously sourced ingredients served in a fresh, no frills, and downright delicious way. There’s sure to be something here for every sailor from scrumptious toasts to juicy burgers and zesty, vibrant salads.

Expect a Virgin-style makeover to cruise spa & fitness programming. Whether Sailors are into high-intensity workouts, deep breaths in search of nirvana, or if they are that person who pays for a gym membership but never uses it – Virgin Voyages provide spaces to care for themselves in whichever way works best for them. For the ‘do nothings,’ ‘do some things’ and the ‘do literally everythings’ we have a way to sweat that suits everyone. From sunrise yoga to outdoor boxing, meditation to HIIT workouts, and even specifically curated hikes at our ports, our approach to working out is that it works for our Sailors.
The wellness and personal style spaces onboard provide a proper dose of Vitamin Sea to leave Sailors totally restored and ready for anything and everything. If vacation for Sailors isn’t complete without the ultimate form of self care, the award winning spa will be their second home. From massages so good they’ll question life itself, to a mud room that will revitalise their soul and body, it’s called Redemption for a reason.

- ATHLETIC CLUB
A throwback to clubs of the past, the Athletic Club is one part workout other part full bar. It’s a gym. It’s a bar. It’s basically heaven. Let’s go! Incorporating not only an active Training Camp room and boxing classes but also a full basketball court and adult-sized seasaws. After Sailors are done sweating it all out or even just hanging out in the sun on the daybed that wraps around the back of the space – they can head to the bar for a healthy juice or craft cocktail from the full-bar.
- TRAINING CAMP
The Training Camp is where Sailors can take one of the many complimentary group fitness classes. From gravity defying bungee classes to HIIT and breathing classes, fitness classes come in all shapes and sizes. And if Sailors would like to try classes on their own, they can follow along on one of the Fitness on Demand apps.
- THE PERCH
Located at the top of the ship on Deck 17 – right above The Athletic Club – Sailors will find the charming and serene outdoor space devoted to the pursuit of Vitamin Sea. Every morning starts with sunrise yoga, and during the day, The Perch acts as a Sailor’s sun haven – with cold water buckets hanging out and waiting for them to pull the rope and drench themselves with a refreshing, homemade waterfall.

Where Indulgence Comes First… Inspired by an underwater cave, the award winning Redemption Spa serves as a mermaid and merman hideaway with a thermal suite complete with a hydrotherapy pool, mud room, steam room, salt room, cold plunge pools and quartz beds. By night, sailors can complete their well-being journey by attending Virgin Voyages’ take of the famous Swiss Aufguss ritual (’Aufguss’ meaning ‘infusion’), where they transform the spa’s thermal suite into a sound based sensory experience.
- AQUATIC CLUB
A Poolside Oasis… With smooth curves and nautical details, Virgin Voyage have created a pool deck with the sophisticated glam of a contemporary yacht. Whether Sailor’s are looking to sunbathe in one of our daybeds or let last night’s choices melt away in the pool, they can detox and recover or carry on with a cocktail or two.
- WELL-BEING POOL
The large, circular well-being pool is situated conveniently between the Gym & Tonic Bar and the MyBeast upper-body strength bars. So after Sailors have worked up a sweat and properly hydrated, they can take a dip in the pool and enjoy the fruits of their labour.
EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED
Swapping classic Broadway productions for exhilarating, contemporary and immersive entertainment, Sailors have the opportunity to choose from a festival-like lineup of shows and happenings developed by the world’s most-talked-about producers, directors, choreographers and artists. From modern takes on classic stories, to interactive dance parties and off-the-wall participatory acts, the bespoke intimate and authentic experiences will push the boundaries of traditional stage performances.
- THE MANOR
This kick ass, two story, two bar space, named after Richard’s first recording studio, is inspired by the coolest clubs on land layered with a moody and sexy 70’s punk vibe. The Manor will host a ground-breaking, immersive dining entertainment experience (coming soon), to kick the night off before it transitions into a mind-blowing, goodbye-early-morning-workout nightclub.
- THE RED ROOM
There’s a lot that’s special about the live performance space that is The Red Room. It’s the first transformational theatre at sea, featuring different modes which enable a variety of unique and engaging experiences.
- THE GROUPIE
No late night outing is complete without some serious karaoke. Virgin Voyages have put their own spin on traditional cruise karaoke by designing Korean style Karaoke Rooms. Bold, vibrant spaces that encourage intense, high energy fun for our Sailors. With song choices that span decades and genres, these bookable private sessions require having their go-to tracks chosen, singing voice warm and invited friends ready for a private dance and song battle to remember. There are 3 private rooms for friends (or strangers) to reserve and enjoy together.
- VOYAGE VINYL
With Virgin Voyages’ history rooted deeply in music, their sonic identity peaks at our record shop onboard. Sailors can get lost in sound at Voyage Vinyl, our record shop at sea. Stocked with music magazines, headphones and record players, Sailors can pull up to a listening station with a stack from the selection of both classic and current albums including special and limited editions.
- THE SOCIAL CLUB
The Social Club is the perfect hangout spot for those young in spirit. The Social Club’s full retro arcade pays homage to the epic childhood video games of yesteryear – like Pacman, Mario Bros, Donkey Kong and other various vintage arcade games. Sailors can also play classic games like air hockey, bar-top shuffleboard, foosball and board games. Yup – you’ve guessed it’s all included. The Social Club is also home to The Social Club Diner where Sailors can grab classic carnival bites, and The Loose Cannon, a nautically themed cozy seaside drinkery. Inner children are permitted to run wild here.
- THE CASINO
Inspired by the sleek and futuristic elements of James Bond and 70’s-glam technicolor, the Casino has something for everyone. There are different zones of experiences for Sailors to indulge in: Tournament, Ocean, Adventure and Asian. Each zone offers games that fit with the theme, from traditional slot machines to table games like Blackjack, Craps and Roulette. But, if they’re not a gambler, they can grab a drink at the Casino Bar and let our dealers teach them how to play during port days so they have the confidence to play when we’re off in international waters.
Virgin Voyages strives to make the world a better place with all they do. Using business as a force for good is at the heart of who they are. While sailors should be free to voyage, it just wouldn’t feel right unless they were sailing ethically.
- LOWER CARBON FOOTPRINT
Working with Sweden based Climeon, it is Virgin Voyages’ goal to majorly reduce carbon dioxide emissions by converting the heat from their ships’ engines into electricity. Since one Climeon unit can produce enough electricity to power 250 normal households, and they have six on each ship, they have the potential to power about 1500 households. This would not only provide for the cabins and suites but also the restaurants, casino and other venues.
- ECO ENERGY
They have also partnered with Scanship, a Norwegian company known for their leadership in purifying wastewater. Scanship uses game-changing technology called microwave assisted pyrolysis (MAP), to convert organic waste into clean energy.
- REDUCE WASTE & SINGLE-USE PLASTICS
If operated like a traditional ship, Virgin estimates that each vessel would generate 300 tons of disposable plastic per year. Their goal is to reduce that amount of plastic by at least 50%, and divert remaining plastics to recycling. That means eliminating single-use plastics across a whole range of products sailors will use like plastic straws, water bottles, stirrers, condiment packs and other unnecessary food packaging. They also plan to provide all sailors with reusable drink bottles, and will offer complimentary still and sparkling water throughout the ship. Bye, bye plastic water bottles!
You’ve heard of tree hugging, yes? Well, let’s consider this sea hugging. Virgin Voyages just want to give the sea a great hug with all of these initiatives, and are hoping to set a new standard, not only for ocean voyages but for all travel.
