Are you ready to set sail on an unforgettable adventure? Look no further than Virgin Voyages, the innovative cruise line that promises a unique and luxurious experience like no other. With headquarters in Plantation, Florida, Virgin Voyages is a joint venture between the Virgin Group and Bain Capital, bringing together the expertise and vision of two industry powerhouses.

A Rich History of Innovation

Virgin Voyages was born out of a collaboration between Nirmal Saverimuttu, a Virgin Group executive, and Tom McAlpin, then-CEO of The World. Their goal was to create a cruise line that embodied the spirit and excitement of the Virgin brand. Market research confirmed their intuition - there was a demand for a new, fresh approach to cruising, especially among younger demographics.

Securing a significant investment from Bain Capital, as well as additional funding, Virgin Voyages set out to redefine the cruise experience. In December 2014, the Virgin Group announced the establishment of Virgin Cruises, with Tom McAlpin at the helm as president and CEO. With plans to build a fleet of two ships, Virgin Voyages set its sights on the vibrant Miami/Fort Lauderdale area as its headquarters.

Setting Sail with Style

Virgin Voyages' first ship, the Scarlet Lady, made its debut in August 2021, sailing from Portsmouth with exclusive itineraries for the UK market. The ship later relocated to PortMiami, where it now offers four-to-five night cruises in the picturesque Caribbean. The Scarlet Lady is just the beginning, with three more ships set to join the fleet, including the upcoming Valiant Lady and Resilient Lady, and the highly anticipated Brilliant Lady on the horizon.

Unparalleled Luxury and Sustainability

Virgin Voyages is committed to delivering a truly exceptional experience for its passengers. The fleet of mid-sized vessels, each with a capacity of approximately 2,700 passengers, is designed to cater to the young at heart. With a focus on sustainability, Virgin Voyages has partnered with Climeon to deploy a clean energy system that reduces carbon dioxide emissions. The company has also banned all single-use plastics from its fleet, making a positive impact on the environment.

The Future of Virgin Voyages

Virgin Voyages has exciting plans for the future. The upcoming Valiant Lady and Resilient Lady ships will offer even more opportunities to explore the stunning destinations of the Caribbean. And with the Brilliant Lady scheduled to join the fleet in 2024, the possibilities for unforgettable adventures only continue to grow.
