    What to expect on an adults-only cruise

    Sponsored by Virgin Voyages

    Children represent one of life’s great joys, but on Virgin Voyages, they believe absence makes the heart grow fonder. That’s why, despite the fact that the ships serve as playgrounds for your inner child, Virgin Voyages has chosen to curate an adults-only cruise experience.


    The Best Cruise Line for Adults?

    Whether you choose to jumpstart the morning with a wheatgrass shot from Gym & Tonic or a Filthy Mary from The Red Bar, you can trust that any path you take will remain unobstructed by little feet. Virgin Voyages are proud of their design-forward eateries and bars which have been created specifically for adults, either for mingling with like-minded adventurers or for cozying up and reconnecting with the person you came aboard with. On top of the spaces themselves being kid-free havens, the menu items served within may also be a little advanced for the average tyke. Between hibachi crudo and filets at The Wake, carpaccio and truffle pasta at Extra Virgin, and mezcal pairings at Pink Agave, the food and drink offerings are mature and unexpected. And the best part? Dining is included in your voyage fare.

    The adults only lifestyle continues whenever you dock, with pages of Shore Things excursions tailored to sophisticated tastes in sight-seeing and cuisine in every port. From artisan honey-making in Ajaccio to sampling craft brews in Zeebrugge, every Virgin Voyages destination from A to Z boasts activities best enjoyed by those 18 and up.


    Included Luxuries and Simple Pleasures, All Designed for Adults

    Once you’re back on the ship after a day of exploration, the boundary-pushing entertainment options will reinforce the wisdom of leaving the kids at home. Think “Romeo and Juliet reimagined in a circus” than themed character dinners, if you will; more immersive cabaret than 7 pm movie and jammies. But let’s be clear, being an adult means you holiday however you want. So if being in bed by 7 pm is your idea of the perfect evening, we encourage that.

    And with free, reliable Wi-Fi available everywhere on the ships, you’re just a video call away from any little ones you may have left on land.

    Aboard a Virgin Voyage, you can stretch out Lagoon-side with a drink in one hand and a book in the other (how many pages you’ve read is none of our business) without fear of a rogue cannonball spoiling the relaxation.
