Itinerary

Day 1 - Portsmouth - EnglandArrow up click to collapse dayArrow Up - Click to expand day
Portsmouth is one of the most densely populated cities in Southern England, and is unusual as most of its built-up area occupies Portsea Island, linked to the mainland by road and rail bridges. Although there is a Roman fort at nearby Portchester, occupied later by the Saxons and Normans, there was no settlement on the site of Portsmouth at the time of the 1086 Domesday Book. The town developed in medieval times and received its first charter in 1194 from King Richard I; soon afterwards it became a major naval base. It has the world’s oldest dry dock, and is home to several famous ships, including HMS Victory, HMS Warrior and the Mary Rose, raised from the Solent in 1982. Portsmouth remains an important naval base and is home to a large proportion of the British service fleet. The waterfront area is now dominated by the Spinnaker Tower, 560 feet high, the United Kingdom’s tallest building outside London. Other things to see in the city include the house where Charles Dickens was born, and the City Museum, which contains a permanent exhibition devoted to another famous writer, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who lived in the town.
Day 2 - Zeebrugge - BelgiumArrow up click to collapse dayArrow Up - Click to expand day
In 1895 work began to construct a new seaport and harbour next to the tiny village of Zeebrugge, situated on the North Sea coast. Today the fast-expanding port of Zeebrugge is one of the busiest in Europe and its marina is Belgium’s most important fishing port. Many attempts were made to destroy this important port during both World Wars. Zeebrugge is ideally located for discovering the historic city of Bruges, and delightful seaside resorts with long sandy beaches can be visited by using the trams that run the whole length of the Belgian coast. Please note that no food may be taken ashore in Belgium. We shall not be offering shuttle buses to Bruges, but you may visit the city on an optional excursion: those visiting Bruges should note that there may be quite a long walk from the coach to the town centre.

Dining Options

Food glorious food.

Michelin-starred chef collective creates incredible onboard dining experiences. Virgin Voyages have ditched buffets and pre-set dining times to bring Sailors made-to-order food and leisurely brunches from our 20+ unique eateries. All the food is included - meaning no exclusive spots they have to pay to get into.

Eat your heart out.

Pairing fresh ingredients and vibrant flavors with ever-evolving ways to experience food, we’ve elevated and diversified our menus while minimizing waste by only cooking what’s been ordered. It’s a win for their stomach and a win for the planet.

Here’s a taste of what to expect from our foodie-approved eateries.

  • 20+ Eateries On Us - From steakhouses and Korean BBQ to a cooking lab and an international food market, all eateries are on us.
  • No Buffets or Big Dining Halls - With unique spaces and diverse options, we’ve ditched the one-big-dining-hall experience and said goodbye to buffets.
  • Late-Night Bites - Whether you're craving a slice of pizza, a burger, or a hearty diner breakfast - your schedule doesn’t stop, so neither will ours.
  • Made-To-Order - Every eatery has its own kitchen and an executive chef - and all our food is fresh and made-to-order, never mass produced.
  • Fresh Is Best - Balance is key, so we offer vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options in every eatery - designed from scratch and always created from the freshest ingredients.
  • Michelin-Starred Chefs - World-class Chefs like Brad Farmerie (of PUBLIC in NYC) and Sohui Kim (of The Good Fork and Insa in NYC) are a few of the names behind our incredible menus.

Enrichments

Accommodation and Deck plan

Modern, yacht-inspired aesthetic and clever cabin technology make for more than just a space to live (or sleep). The cabins and suites are a hero experience, a signature moment, places to escape and retreat from the world; that sweet moment of exhale. They are...cozy, stylish, modern and smart. This is sailing the Virgin way.

Let’s talk Quarters. (Suites)

RockStar Quarters are where superyachts meet luxury cruises along with rock and roll royalty. Accents of brass and slabs of marble guide you to spacious stargazing terraces, and every detail of these suites serves to celebrate the romance of the open ocean. The suites were conceptualized by world-renowned designer, Tom Dixon - describing Grace Jones as the muse for these gorgeous suites.

Richard's Rooftop

Booking a suite unlocks access to Richard's Rooftop; an exclusive sun deck where elegance meets exuberance. A lavish, elaborate and members-only outdoor space for RockStar Quarters Sailors to bask under the sun or have a drink under the stars. Think VIP Rockstar service, chilled vibes, cool tunes, sophisticated loungers and being surrounded by dichroic glass casting stunning rainbow reflections through the rooftop.

Let's talk Cabins.

The ultimate go-to for rejuvenation, the cabins stand out for their flexible furnishings, upgraded bathrooms with Roomy Rainshowers and sensory mood lighting, creating comfy quarters that are way more than just a place to crash. The Lady Ships offer the most lavish, and unique, beds at sea. The Seabed re-imagines the cruise cabin experience. Your cabin, your way. The cabins are custom-created to accommodate the Seabed, the first-ever transformational cabin bed at sea. Award-winning Walter Knoll, who’s designed thoughtful and sustainable furniture for over 150 years, is responsible for specially engineering and handcrafting our transformative Seabed in Germany. Sailors can enjoy their cabin in two distinct ways, as a place to revel or a place to relax. A luxurious loungey space transforms into an expansive bedroom with a queen size bed in one swift movement. The transformation can be executed by the sailor or by one of our crew.
