As mentioned in previous postings. The newest cruise lines to hit Miami, FL in early 2020 is Virgin Voyages.
Virgin is supposed to be the latest in the way people cruise. Right now, we don’t have much actual information to go on. Meaning, the travel advisers, like myself, That being said, we get daily updates, photos and more! From what we are finding out, that Virgin is not going to be for everyone and all types of clients. So, like we do with all of our clients is to qualify them to the right product. We can only go by what you tell us. Will we get it right all the time. No! But almost 80% we get it right. People including ourselves have certain expectations, that sometimes they aren’t what we wanted. So, when we ask, to be very specific or to be adventurous in new ideas. Let’s keep it opened minded.
Okay, getting back to Virgin Voyages. From what Nelson and I are finding out; is that Virgin is only for cruisers 18 years and older. No kids at all. Many tour companies and cruise lines are listening to us, the travel agents, and the travel advisers of who are clients are and what do they want in travel.
Since the beginning of the rebound of the economy, early 2016 through today, our clients are looking for healthier alternatives, whether a spa, food, clubs, relaxation; and also a more luxury experience. There is a luxury product for all budgets, luxury is an option and not to put a price on. Traveling is a luxury in general, we don’t do it every day, so it is something we save up for to enjoy.
So Virgin, meaning Sir Richard Branson, himself to bring the things he doesn’t like about cruises and throwing them out the door and bringing in more inclusive and activities to the masses.
The terms they are giving the cruise line is Sexy and Stylish, you can see from just the design of the Port of Miami Terminal rendering that is actively being built.
Style is out of the box. from the photos below of the Thermal Spa, that at night turns into a night club; stateroom that offer not only to sleep in but entertain as well, no buffets but food options. Healthy alternatives like yoga and boxing; instead of water parks and lounge hogs; and so much more.
Entertainment, locations, and more coming soon! Enjoy!
