Like all cruise lines, the Virgin Voyages fare includes your accommodations for the duration of the voyage. The cruise line boasts more than 85% of the cabins on the ship have balconies. Of course, you can opt for cabins from several different categories. The type of stateroom you choose will be the main driver of the total cruise costs.

The cruise line also includes a number of daily activities. These include use of the fitness center, trivia, games at the Social Club, and group fitness classes. Likewise, on a Virgin Voyages cruise, you can enjoy live music from the House Band and a solo guitarist. Members of the Happenings Cast also provide headliner-style acts throughout the cruise.

The cruise ship’s theater, the Red Room, is home to several productions as well. These include Duel Reality (a cirque style show), an interactive dance party, and Ships in the Night. The ship’s Diva also hosts a show in the Manor. In addition, you will find the risque Never Sleep Alone cabaret show in the Manor on several nights of your cruise.

Virgin Voyages cruise fare also encompasses many additional amenities not typically included on contemporary cruise lines. All dining and restaurants are complimentary. This includes the American steakhouse, an Italian trattoria, a Mexican tapas restaurant, a Korean BBQ, and more.

Further, basic Wi-Fi is covered, as is all gratuities for services, including the typical “daily service charge” and any additional gratuities on purchases like drinks and spa treatments.

While the Virgin Voyages cruise fare does cover a lot, not everything on the ship is complimentary.

The cruise line does include a number of premium beverages, like sparkling and still water and soda, but it does not include alcohol. Also, the cruise line does not include specialty coffee, including espresso based drinks from the Grounds Club.

Further, Virgin Voyages does not offer a drink package for purchase. Thus, the costs of your bar tab can add up quickly.

Unlike luxury cruise lines, access to the thermal suite is not part of the cruise fare either. Cruisers need to buy day passes to use the Redemption Spa’s thermal suite. Other treatments, like massages, facials, manicures, etc., are also an additional cost.

In addition, the cruise fare does not cover premium Wi-Fi, which enables streaming of content. It also does not cover items like shore excursions, shopping, any gaming in the casino, as well as transportation to and from the pier.

Although, Mega Rockstar Suites do get a number of these upgrades, including an unlimited open-bar, transportation to and from the pier, plus premium Wi-Fi. So, it might make sense to upgrade to these cabins to take advantage of the extra value.
