Virgin Voyages outlines new itineraries after US Cuba travel ban

The proposed new sailings showcase Mexico and Florida’s Key West, as well as the Bahamas, while its 2020 festive sailings will feature stops in the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.

Its itineraries will also feature multiple late-night sail aways, including a midnight departure on all new sailings.

Virgin Voyages will now offer five-night Riviera Maya sailings to Cozumel and Playa Del Carmen in Mexico, renowned for its diving with the area home to 26 species of coral.

Guests will also have the opportunity to explore ecological and archeological sites, including Mayan ruins, or opt to explore neighbouring Tulum.

Four-night sailings include a sunset departure from Key West and a midnight departure from Bimini in the Bahamas.

After exploring Key West, passengers will be enjoy a day’s downtime in Bimini before a late-night beach bonfire soiree, exclusive to these sailings.

The fire installations will draw inspiration from Richard Branson’s Necker Island, the line has said.

Meanwhile, in response to demand, Virgin Voyages has also developed a range of seven-night sailings for the 2020 festive holiday season.

Passengers can opt for Virgin’s all-new Holiday and Nights and New Year’s Ahoy voyages, featuring stops in Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic and late-night sail aways in Bimini and from San Juan in Puerto Rico.

All voyages will feature at The Beach Club, the private club for Virgin Voyages guests, in Bimini.
Virgin’s first ship, Scarlet Lady, will launch in April 2020.
