The Virgin America airline is already known for putting a fun spin on air travel and now the brand is branching out into cruises with the debut of Virgin Voyages. Dubbed a luxury cruise for adults only, the ship is nothing short of a party at sea.
Virgin Voyages is a new cruise line set to take place aboard the Virgin's first ship, the Scarlet Lady. According to renderings, the 2,700-passenger ship features everything from bars and restaurants, to pools and a cave-inspired spa. However, unlike other cruise ships, there are no kid-friendly areas to be found due to the strict 18 and up policy in place for passengers.
Of course, Virgin Voyages will not be all party, all the time. There is also a heavy emphasis on wellness, with many of the ship's amenities designed to leave travelers feeling rejuvenated.
