Virgin Voyages to visit 21 new ports in summer 2025

Virgin Voyages will introduce 21 new ports to its cruise itineraries for summer 2025 across Iceland, Italy, Scotland, Ireland and the Caribbean.

They include Reykjavik (Iceland), Naples (Italy), Dublin (Ireland), Istanbul (Turkey), Porto (Portugal), George Town (Grand Cayman) and Muscat (Oman).

The adult-only cruise line has also unveiled its wave offers for customers. Between now and January 31, clients can buy one cruise and get 70% off for the second passenger, plus up to $600 on a bar tab, depending on the voyage length.

The tab will be $600 for cruises of 14 nights or more; $300 for cruises lasting seven to 13 nights; $200 for sailings of five or six nights; and $100 for trips of four nights or fewer.

For summer 2025, Scarlet Lady will sail around Europe, offering a combination of six to 15-night cruises.

After travelling around southern Spain, Morocco, Florence, Rome and Mallorca, the ship will return to the brand’s original home in Portsmouth and offer a series of voyages that includes Reykjavik, Norway, Bordeaux, Ireland, Scotland and Cannes.

Valiant Lady will continue to sail the brand’s popular four and five-night Caribbean routes, while incorporating a couple of longer options to Grand Turk and Grand Cayman.

Resilient Lady (pictured), currently based in Australia and New Zealand, will embark on the long-haul journey back to Athens while stopping in Bali, Singapore, Phuket, Oman, Dubai and Santorini.

Once back in Greece, Resilient Lady will sail seven-night cruises while incorporating new 10 and 11-night itineraries that call on Istanbul, Mykonos, Dubrovnik and Crete.

A new show for 2024 has also been revealed: the LOLz Supper Club comedy show, debuting on Scarlet Lady.

Next year will also see three global Elevate (formerly Limitless) Voyages, a CEO-hosted Celebration Voyage, and the return of the brand’s popular Eat & Drink Festival and Wellbeing Months (January to March).

Nirmal Saverimutu, Virgin Voyages’ chief executive, said: “Wave season is here and the best time for travellers to book a voyage with us, whether wanting a Caribbean winter escape, a Mediterranean summer adventure or going further aboard our epic voyages to Bali, Morocco or Iceland.

“From the world’s best ships and best food at sea, to phenomenal value with all that we include in an elevated (and kid-free environment), there’s truly nothing like a Virgin Voyages experience.”
