How's a vacation sound right about now? What about a cruise to a private beach club sans kids? If you're thinking what we're thinking (um, "yes please"), you'll be just as excited as we are that the mighty Richard Branson has just launched his new cruise line, Virgin Voyages, now reserving trips starting April 2020. And as with every Branson venture, this cruise line promises to shake up the industry with the tag line "No Kids, No Buffets, No Limits". Sound good? We feel you.
With Miami as its hub, most voyages are between 4-5 days in length and include a day at a Virgin's privately owned Beach Club on the Bahamian shores of Bimini, where sailors (what Virgin Voyages call their guests) can take in early morning yoga, cuddle in cabanas and then as the day goes on, switch into party mode by rocking out to beats courtesy of the resident DJ while sipping on craft cocktails.
For those who just can't wait to roam around the ship, you won't be disappointed. Although you won't find any all you can eat buffets on board, rest assured you will find plenty of food options- everything from a test kitchen, to a Mexican cafe, to a luxe champagne lounge. And don't fret about coming home with a few extra pounds, Virgin Voyages' emphasis on wellness gives sailors a ton of options to break a sweat and work off those yummy meals and cocktails.
