Way back in March 2014 Richard Branson announced that his company, Virgin would be launching its own Cruise Line, Virgin Voyages. Since then there hasn’t been much else announced about it. Until now.
The Cruise Line will be called Virgin Voyages. It will launch 3 ships between 2020 and 2022. The ship’s construction will begin within the next few years. They are intended to be more medium size ships. Which will hold no more than 2,800 passengers to give them a more boutique feel.
Virgin Voyages Press Conference
At a press conference for the launch of the new company Branson said
“The only reason we ever go into a new industry is if we feel it’s lacking in something and I think the cruise industry, there is a lot of people who just would never go on a cruise ship. We basically decided, ‘Let’s have a blank sheet of paper, let’s create the kind of voyage company that we would like to go on,’ and that’s what we’ve done.”
As a young person who loves Cruise Holidays, I think this sounds so exciting and can’t wait to see what Virgin Voyages will be like and of course I can’t wait to try it out.
Let me know what you think in the comments, would you take a cruise with Virgin Voyages? Do you think it sounds exciting? Could this be something you would consider booking? Maybe a cruise that isn’t for cruisers could be just right for you.
