    Virgin cruises are awesome already, but can a Virgin Voyages travel agent — what Virgin calls “First Mates” — do anything to make the experience even better? You bet.

    When you book your cruise with Fora, your Virgin Voyages travel agent (a.k.a. Fora Advisor) can not only help you pick the perfect cruise plan — including your destination(s), ship accommodations and so on — but also score exciting extras and benefits.

    New to Virgin Voyages? Here’s what makes the adults-only cruise line special

    Before we get into why it makes so much sense to book your cruise with a Virgin Voyages travel agent, here’s an overview of why we’re obsessed with Virgin Voyages in the first place. 

    The short version: Virgin Voyages offers a fresh, luxurious take on something that was already a blast. There are a lot of reasons to love Virgin Voyages’ adults-only cruises, from the high-tech, adult-oriented amenities to the electric, carefree atmosphere. 

    Here’s the long version.

    The crews are welcoming and the atmosphere is inclusive

    Virgin Voyages caters to the young at heart, but expect to see travelers from all walks of life aboard — better yet, expect to see travelers from all walks of life having a great time. 

    Similarly diverse crews and performers are super nice and helpful, with a talent for making travelers feel welcome, too. 

    Both contribute to a cosmopolitan vibe not unlike the world’s coolest cities, a sharp contrast from what you’ll typically encounter on run-of-the-mill cruise liners.

    There’s a focus on wellbeing & relaxation… when you want it

    There’s no denying that Virgin Voyages’ party scene is electric — the nightlife and entertainment constantly win awards — but that doesn’t mean you have to party your whole trip. 

    There’s a definite choose-your-own-adventure vibe on Virgin Voyages, with tons of relaxing spa and fitness options to complement the high-energy social scene. 

    Want to do nothing but enjoy fine dining, spa treatments and ocean views from the hammock on your private terrace? No problem. Want to sing, dance, drink and eat under neon lights with lively crowds? That’s great, too.

    In any case, your Virgin Voyages travel agent has the lowdown on all the most adventurous and relaxing things to do. Plan your cruise with Fora, and we’ll make sure you have the time of your life.

    The food and drink options are awesome, diverse and just plain better

    Food and drink is another area where Virgin Voyages really stands apart from other cruise lines. You won’t find the typical buffet-style dining halls aboard. Instead, virtually all the eateries are either full-service, sit-down restaurants or quick-service vendors. 

    As with everything on Virgin Voyages, the options are wide ranging, including plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free choices. Oh, and it’s all included in the ticket price (i.e., you don’t have to pay extra for “specialty dining”).

    The events and entertainment on Virgin Voyages cruises are fresh, fun & adult-friendly

    Each ship in the Virgin Voyages fleet has its own lineup of events and entertainment, but they all share a common theme: this isn’t your average lineup. The production quality of Virgin Voyages’ shows is simply on another level compared to ordinary cruise lines. And since you have to be 18 or older to board, the shows and venues are much more adult-friendly across the board (pun intended). 

    Even standard guest cabins are luxurious & contemporary

    If you have ever stayed at Virgin Hotels, like their location in NOLA (check out the most unique places to stay in New Orleans), you will have an idea of what to expect for accommodations on Virgin Voyages. 

    Even the most basic cabins on Virgin ships offer a degree of luxury and style that outclasses other cruise lines. The decor is generally minimalist — but there’s an artful elegance to each choice, often blending contemporary and retro styles for a look that’s unique, fun and perhaps most importantly, convenient. You don’t have to worry about not having enough space or power outlets, for example. 

    Moreover, many of the rooms can be customized to your needs. And obviously, a Virgin Voyages travel agent can totally help you with that.

    …And so much more!

    We can write volumes on what makes Virgin Voyages so great — in fact, we did in both our guide to Virgin Voyages adults-only cruises and our firsthand account of cruising on the Scarlet Lady. But if you want to personalize your travel experience, you're best off connecting with Fora.

    Virgin Voyages destinations: the Bahamas, Greece, New Zealand & more

    As great as Virgin Voyages ships are, if the destination isn’t enticing, embarking is a tough sell. Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about lack-luster destinations with Virgin Voyages, and there are dozens of top-tier itineraries that take travelers to awesome locales in the Caribbean, Europe, the South Pacific and more.

    1. The Caribbean: Puerto Plata, Bimini, St. Croix, San Juan…

    From Old San Juan to the coolest resorts in the Bahamas, there are dozens of ports that Virgin Voyages sails to throughout the Caribbean, with durations lasting between four and eight days. In fact, depending on your itinerary, you can visit as many as seven destinations during a single trip.

    Sidenote: if you’re traveling from the United States, Caribbean cruises tend to be a little more affordable compared to Virgin Voyages’ other itineraries. Better yet: there’s absolutely no drop-off in quality. 

    (P.S. See the most exciting things to do in Old San Juan.)

    2. Europe: the Greek Isles, Barcelona, Dubrovnik, Amsterdam…

    Whether you’re interested in the best places to visit in Greece (including some of the best Greek Islands for couples and solo travelers) or a Spain-bucket-list destination, Virgin Voyages takes travelers to some of Europe’s coolest coastal cities and islands. 

    Most Virgin Voyages cruises in Europe traverse the Mediterranean, but there are also cruises that depart from the UK to Belgium and the Netherlands. The shortest trips only last three days, but there are also 12-day options. 

    As always, a Virgin Voyages travel agent can help you select an itinerary that best matches your style and budget. Just connect with Fora to get started.

    3. Australia & the South Pacific: Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland, Brisbane…

    Virgin Voyages’ South Pacific cruises largely focus on various urban hubs in Australia and New Zealand, from Sydney to Auckland and Melbourne to Brisbane. There are a greater number of short-term trips in the South Pacific, with most options running from three to five days. However, a handful of trips last over a week.

    4. Transatlantic cruises: Singapore, Miami, Dubai, Athens…

    The crème de la crème of Virgin Voyages itineraries, transatlantic voyages take travelers from one end of the world to the next, with most options lasting around two weeks. Some itineraries take you from Miami to some of the most unique places to visit in Spain, while others start in Singapore and end in Dubai. 

    Incredibly, the price tag on these voyages is quite reasonable considering their length and the destinations (which also include places like Lisbon, Santorini, Bali and Zeebrugge).
