Virgin Voyages announces private Bahamas destination

Virgin Voyages has announced that they're going to be stopping at Bimini in the Bahamas. They're building a private resort type of area there and it honestly looks really nice in the renderings. I'm just hoping it's big enough that it can comfortably hold everyone from the ship and not be too crowded. Anyone here planning to sail Virgin next year? They're doing some questionable things (ie tattoo parlor on a moving ship), but a lot of aspects look really cool.

I just wrote this up based on their press release:

Nice article.

I have yet to see a deckplan, itinerary or pricing for their cruises, though.

When they come through with that, then I will decide if I want to cruise with them.

It would be fun ti win the cruise for his birthday! However, looking at the value of the prize leads me think we won't be sailing on this cruise line.Surprised

BD, they have just opened bookings yesterday, and prices/itineraries should be on their website! They should also be on our site within a week or two.

I just looked at the prices. About 2550 for a cabin for a 5 day cruise. Even if that is for the cabin and not per person, it is a bit steep. I did enter the drawing thoughBig Smile

The jury is out on this line until we see itineraries, ports of departure, amenities and price. I do recall about a year ago seeing some funky design prospects they were floating ... was not at all impressed

Deck plans as they stand now are 3/4 of the way to the bottom of the page

DIning options as they come in - all inclusive no up charges -

Itineraries and pricing

What is catching my eye - passengers must be 18 and older, hotel/restaurant gratuities included in fare, a 24 hour cafe instead of a buffet, and inclusion of beyond basic beverages like sodas and juices. And if the basic cabins are bigger than other lines, as promised, not too bad of a deal for off season interior at $1,800 - $2,100 for 2 when ports fees are added.

I can see this line appealing to those who prefer to cruise without children running around the ship. It seems like an interesting way to cruise, with their dining choices etc, but not one that I'd likely go with.

I suspect it would appeal more to the jet set singles or those not settled.
