Earlier this year, Virgin Voyages swept all five cruisecritic.com Cruisers' Choice Awards for Best Overall Cruise Line, Best Dining, Best Cabins, Best Service, and Best Value-For-Money. No other cruise line has ever won all five before. This comes as no surprise to folks like me who, having earned platinum loyalty status on another cruise line, were impressed by both what Virgin Voyages offers every sailor (their lingo for guest) and the Deep Blue Extras offered to sailors with loyalty status matched.
And now, Virgin Voyages wins another accolade: Travel and Leisure's World Best Awards have voted Virgin Voyages the #1 Mega-ship Ocean Cruise Line of 2023. Over 685,000 votes were cast regarding cruise line food, service, cabins, and overall value.
Every guest on Virgin Voyages enjoys included items such as gratuities, Wi-Fi, essential beverages (water, coffee, tea, sodas (even canned), and non-pressed juices), all 20+ restaurants (including upscale mexican, italian, korean, vegetarian-forward, steak and seafood, and an experimental test kitchen), group fitness classes, and entertainment.
And with Deep Blue Extras, loyalty-status-matched sailors get additional perks per cabin including:
a $100 bar tab credit
premium Wi-Fi where available
a dedicated onboard sailor services agent
an exclusive cocktail event for those with Deep Blue Extras
Two pressed items, one specialty-cleaned item, and a free bag of laundry (much larger than the paper bag I receive on other cruise lines)
a daily $10 specialty coffee credit
If you have not yet experienced Virgin Voyages, or you have but would like an agent to help plan your next sailing and reservations, reach out at 773-418-3840 or primedwell.com. First time callers are screened by Google Assistant, so state your name and explain why you're calling in order to make the phone ring. If you have a large crew to book 10 or more cabins or are interested in joining a hosted group cruise, these can often result in additional perks. And finally, if you are looking for the perfect venue for your corporate retreat or corporate incentives, consider a sailing like this with so many inclusions.
