Adults-Only Experience

Unlike many other cruise lines that cater to families or a wide range of age groups, Virgin Voyages exclusively caters to adults aged 18 and over. This adult-focused Virgin Voyages approach allows for a more tailored experience, with amenities, entertainment, and activities designed specifically for adult passengers. It creates an atmosphere that’s more conducive to relaxation, enjoyment, and socializing among other gay adults without the presence of children.
