At a press conference today, Virgin Voyages have announced some exciting details on their upcoming newbuild. The one thing getting the most fanfare is the decision to go adults-only for the entire fleet:
That’s why we’ve taken great care to design a place where you, your friends or your significant other can have the best possible experience, sans the unpredictability of kids.
The announcements came during the ships keel laying ceremony in Fincantieri Shipyard in Italy. When the ship is launched in 2020, she will head to the Caribbean. Virgin Voyages are already accepting deposits surprisingly. Dates, duration, and itinerary are unknown so it’s a bit of a gamble. I bet they’re just trying to gauge interest at this point.
And lastly in typical Virgin Group style:
Adorned at the hull you’ll find our beautiful, mermaid guide. Inspired by the traditional bows from ships of yore, she is our ship’s muse. The soul of the voyage. Our elegant leader. The feminine spirit of the ship.
Keep in mind their planes are adorned with a very similar logo.
