Nobody likes paying for things they use all the time, like Wifi, basic beverages, and a terrific place for dinner. So, we don’t charge extra for them. Ever. Even fitness classes are included! Log on, drink up, spin a little, and enjoy!

Every fabulously original restaurant is included with more choices than any other ship at sea.

And there’s no buffet in sight. Or a massive banquet-like main hall. But who needs one with all these amazing spots?

Oh, and by basic beverages we mean sodas, water, coffees, juices, and most non-alcoholic offerings. The hard stuff is, of course, extra.

Let’s Make Waves. The Virgin Voyages Story

Virgin Voyages was conceived with a simple idea in mind – redefine what a luxury cruise ship can be to create a radically fun new way to sail. Before a single ship was built, a deeply engaging sailor experience was crafted with an eye towards the future, focused on fun & freedom, discarding legacy cruise elements deeply rooted in the past. Breakthrough design creates a visually stunning and fabulously functional playground, and innovative approaches to entertainment, dining, and wellness will delight you in ways you never imagined.

We think Virgin has created the perfect ship for the Atlantis way to sail, allowing us to offer a bold and unique experience with a sense of freedom and playfulness that you simply won’t see anywhere else.

After all, no other cruise line has full-time drag queens onboard.

Designed for Fun!

You’ll never mistake Resilient Lady for any other ship, except maybe one of her sisters. From her dramatic red and grey exterior to dazzling cool interiors, she’s the combination of the talents of world-class designers. Built to create an immersive, interactive, and playful experience everywhere.

Step onto the sleek pool deck and you’ll feel like she’s your own private yacht filled with great friends and whimsical furnishings. Find your perfect setting along one of the two inviting pools, or one of the massive surrounding decks. As the day evolves, relaxing vibes give way to festive poolside playfulness, ultimately transforming into in the perfect space for Atlantis’ friendly T-dances and outrageously fun night-time parties. A unique pool cover creates a spectacular and seamless dance floor and party space unlike any other at sea.

Sample your favorite sound at Virgin Vinyl or create a new one in the private karaoke rooms. Pop a cork at the gorgeous Champagne bar after a moment of glory in the boxing ring. Relax with friends on the lux open decks of the Dockhouse. Soak up a sunset high above the ocean in the Athletic Club. Stay up way too late in the Manor, try your luck in the casino, and top it all off by raiding The Galley late at night.

There’s a setting for everything and an abundance of new experiences waiting for you to explore. And all of it beautifully made for Atlantis and the way we play.

Serious Eats. Always Included.

Forget everything you know about dining at sea and indulge in a world where 18 different eateries cater to every taste and style. And forget extra charges for “specialty” dining since all food is included at every restaurant.

There’s no big dining hall where you have to queue up for a meal. Virgin’s innovative booking system lets you plan dinner where you want, when you want, with friends old and new. Atlantis will enhance our tradition of shared dining with options to meet new friends at every meal, or to dine on your own. It’s your choice and easier than ever. All with no dress code, of course.

If you’re in the mood for authentic Italian, Extra Virgin will hit the spot with a lively setting and mix of classic and contemporary options. Or share something different at Gunbae, the first real Korean BBQ at sea!

Let the masterful chefs at Test Kitchen wow you with a modern tasting menu in a sleek food-lab setting. Indulge in modern Mexican at Pink Agave, where festive drinks match outrageously delicious food.

Relax with a mezze platter and cocktail on the open decks of The Dock or indulge in a perfect steak in the sleek and sexy dining room of The Wake below.

For all-day fare with abundant vegetarian options, the bold Razzle Dazzle satisfies in new and delicious ways. You’ll be faced with even more choices at The Galley, Virgin’s take on the food hall featuring everything from tacos to poke to ramen and plenty more in between. On top of all that you’ll find freshly made pizza, fabulous ice cream, an authentic coffee house, and so much more throughout the ship.

In case you think we missed it, there’s no buffet. Just an abundance of fabulous choices including a few surprises. And yes, excellent options are available round the clock!

Fabulously Showy Venues

The transformational Red Room boasts movable seating and a flexible stage to create unique settings for Virgin’s wildly inventive production shows and Atlantis’ legendary performers. You’ll have to see it to believe it, and stick around later when we transform it into a spectacular late-night venue.

Named after Richard Branson’s first recording studio, The Manor hosts the interactive Another Rose show, and transforms into an intimate performance space for Atlantis drag queens, cabaret stars, and specialty acts. Featuring three bars, two stories, and plenty of space to dance!
