Virgin Voyages — For a kids-free getaway at sea.
Children are 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 their ships are a playground for your inner child, they’ve chosen to curate an adults-only cruise experience.
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. They’re proud of their design-forward eateries and bars and they created them specifically as adults-only spaces, 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 havens for adult interaction, 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, they keep their food and drink offerings mature and unexpected.
The adults only lifestyle continues whenever they dock, with pages of Shore Things excursions tailored to sophisticated tastes in sight-seeing and cuisine in every port. While they know every child has a spark of genius, they don’t know many who’d be riveted by (or at least not get restless on) a medieval heritage tour through the white-stoned streets of Dubrovnik. From artisan honey-making in Ajaccio to sampling craft brews in Zeebrugge, every Virgin destination from A to Z boasts activities best enjoyed by those 18 and up.
Once you’re back on the ship after a day of exploration, their boundary-pushing entertainment options will reinforce the wisdom of leaving the kids at home. They’re more “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 vacation however you want. So if being in bed by 7 pm is your idea of the perfect evening, they encourage that.
And with free, reliable Wi-Fi available everywhere on their ships, you’re just a video call away from any little ones you may have left on land.
There you have it: Virgin Voyages’ case for remaining an adult-only cruise experience. 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 their business) without fear of a rogue cannonball spoiling the relaxation. They trust that even their Sailors with children will appreciate not having to explain an onboard ice cream shop called “Lick Me Till Ice Cream.”
