Virgin Voyages Has Been Voted Travel & Leisure’s #1 Mega-ship Ocean Cruise Line for 2023!


Virgin Voyages is the only Adults Only Ocean Cruise Line.

From Virgin Voyages,  September, 2023

First thing’s first – we’re not in it for the accolades. We didn’t launch the first adult-only voyages for a pat on the back, or to win awards. We did it to fill a much-needed gap in the industry, to offer your Sailors a more sophisticated, elevated cruising experience, while still retaining a casual atmosphere of judgment-free fun. But we’re also not gonna complain when awards come our way. Hey, everyone likes to win, right?

We’re thrilled to share the news that in Travel & Leisure’s World’s Best Awards, we were voted the #1 Mega-ship Ocean Cruise Line of 2023. More than 685,000 votes were cast this year — spanning the whole experience from food, service, and cabins to activities and overall value. Not only were we able to clinch that top spot, we were the only brand to get a score in the 90s. Not too shabby. The votes, cast by past Sailors, were based on a wide range of categories, but with our state-of-the-art, cutting-edge cabin technology, elevated bars and eateries, impeccable service, immersive Shore Things, epic itineraries, and overall value — we were able to blow away the competition.

Here’s what Travel & Leisure had to say about us:

“…this year’s winner surged ahead thanks to its innovative new take on cruise vacations. Leave it to Sir Richard Branson to shake up an industry. It’s gotten rave reviews from just about everyone, both veteran cruise-goers and newbies alike. And this is what the voters said – “The crew was the best I’ve ever experienced at sea, the food was outstanding, and the beautiful ship was full of fun people of all ages.”

But we’re not done yet.

We’ve collected a number of awards recently for best overall experience, in publications from Condé Nast to Cruise Critic, while garnering the most 5-star reviews on Tripadvisor. And we couldn’t have won these awards without the love and loyalty of you and your Sailors. So we want to extend a massive thank you to everyone who voted and to all those who have sailed with us. We’re endlessly grateful. More excited than ever. And we’re just getting started.
