Virgin Voyages, the most anticipated new cruise line in years, will launch their first cruise ship in 2020. The cruise line posted a few photos from the shipyard of their first cruise ship under construction.
What do we know about Virgin Voyages? This new cruise line promises to change cruising forever. From dining and entertainment to wellness and rejuvenation, nearly every single element of the Virgin Voyages journey will bring a unique Virgin Style to the high seas – and not just for the 2,800 Sailors, but also for the 1,150 crew members who will reside there and make amazing happen.
All passengers must be 18 years and older to sail with Virgin Voyages. The cruise line’s first cruise ship will be based in Miami, Florida and sail cruises to the Caribbean. Itineraries and ports of call will be announced at a later date.
Virgin Voyages assembled a ‘Creative Collective’ from some of the world’s leading design firms to help them redefine what people expect from a cruise ship. These creators are responsible for some of the most talked about travel spaces in the world, including Ace Hotels, The Standard High Line and Mondrian Hotels.
Equally important to the ship’s physical design is the desire to create a meaningful experience for guests. Virgin Voyages will feature exciting ideas in entertainment and music to provide our Sailors (not passengers or cruisers) with a strong variety of programming options.
Virgin Voyage has yet to announce a name for their first cruise ship. The cruise line has three ships on order and the first will homeport in the Cruise Capital of the World, PortMiami. Itineraries will also be released at a later time.
