Is Virgin Voyages Just For Millennials?


Is Virgin Voyages just young people and millennials? Absolutely not! This trend-setting travel experience has something to offer everyone, regardless of age or lifestyle.

We understand that you might think it’s non-stop parties just for loud and lively young people. Like a Club 18-30s holiday or Magaluf at sea – it really isn’t at all.

Revolutionary cruise line Virgin Voyages is designed to meet the needs of millennials and those young at heart with its modern amenities, unique dining experiences, and vibrant atmosphere. Whether you’re a millennial, Gen X, Z or a baby boomer, if looking for something different, this could be just what you’re after. Read on to learn more about why Virgin Voyages might be perfect for your next holiday!

Is it just for young people? Will I feel out of place?


So, is Virgin Voyages just for millennials? The answer is no! Whether you’re a millennial looking for an exciting getaway or an older traveller seeking something new and different, this cruise line has something to offer everyone. With its modern amenities and exciting destination options, it’s easy to see why Virgin Voyages is the perfect choice for all ages.

In fact, you’re see more people aged 30 – 50 onboard than you will do 18 – 30. Virgin Voyages are great value for money, but it’s not the cheap and cheerful type of holiday that usually attracts the Magaluf crowd.

Ok, but if I just want to relax, will I get disturbed?


No worries – Virgin Voyages has thought of it all. As soon as you step onboard, you’ll notice how the ship is designed for all ages, from millennials to baby boomers. You can lounge poolside or take a stroll around the deck; sip cocktails in one of our chic bars or enjoy some live music; relax with intricate spa treatments or take part in a yoga session.

Plus, if you have a SeaTerrace, you can chill and relax in your hammock watching the world sail by. My top tip is to use the Ship Eats (room service), get yourself a antipasti platter and enjoy a glass of wine swinging in your hammock reading a book.




Is there just loud dance music in the bars?


Whether you’re looking to enjoy some live music with friends or have a quiet conversation over a drink, there’s something for everyone. There’s an array of bars and lounges, each offering different vibes so that you can choose the atmosphere that best suits you. From a relaxed library lounge to a bustling late-night club, no two nights will be the same aboard Virgin Voyages.

Ok, tell me about the food onboard Virgin Voyages


Like I said earlier, the dining experience onboard is second-to-none. The diverse menus of small plates and al fresco brunches rotate regularly to keep things interesting – but you can always find some classic favourites like fish and chips and burgers. They also serve up vegan and vegetarian options at all of the eateries, so no matter what dietary requirements you have, there’s something for everyone.

Virgin work with Michelin stared chefs to create some of the best menus at sea. Here are some of my favourites:

  • The Wake – this was the first table-service restaurant I tried onboard Valiant Lady. Steaks, seafood and a full raw bar. Feels like a classic NYC restaurant
  • The Test Kitchen – so good we went twice! Inspired by Escoffier’s Ma Cuisine, this laboratory-like eatery is part cooking school and part restaurant. It’s educational, experiential and social. With classes and evolving tasting menus, this is for the curious, boundary-pushing tastebuds on board
  • Gunbae – part socialising, part Korean BBQ. Sat around a circular BBQ, your own personal chef cooks everything in front of your eyes and there’s a fun drinking game too
  • Pink Agave – inspired by the capital city’s red hot street food scene, sailors are treated to an immersive odyssey of Mexican cuisine. Personal, intimate, and educational, a master of ceremonies will guide you through a highly curated dining and drinking experience

For most of these restaurants, you’d probably pay extra to dine here if you were on another cruise line. But on Virgin, it’s all included.

How inclusive are the guests and crew onboard? Will I stand out?


Virgin goes to great lengths to employ their crew from all over the world bringing along a rich diversity that I’ve never seen on another cruise line. It’s a melting pot of different nationalities, races, religions, faiths and sexualities. Crew are free to show their tattoos, have different hair styles and speak about their backgrounds. Additionally, a considerable number of the crew members are from the LGBTQ+ community, making it an incredibly inviting environment for those who identify with them.

Like guests, crew are a nice mix of millennials and the young at heart.
