Virgin Voyages points deals

Here is what the Virgin Red site has to say:

Ahoy there! This is a limited-time special offer, and there is only a limited number of cabins available. Choose ANY 7-night sailing from Barcelona on Virgin Voyages’ Valiant Lady between now and 16/10/2022 – just as long as you complete your booking by 19/06/2022.

Not only does this offer present jaw-dropping value – you also get to pick your preferred route and sail dates! Our cousins over at Virgin Voyages have curated three itineraries featuring some of the most idyllic islands and effervescent cities in Europe. All journeys begin and end in Barcelona, with an overnight finale in Ibiza.

It gets even better… When it comes to additional costs, Virgin Voyages has you covered – all food, soft drinks, tips, group fitness classes, entertainment and Wi-Fi are always included.

With menus crafted by Michelin-starred chefs, the responsibly sourced food makes it easy to strike a balance. From their first-to-sea Korean BBQ and elegant steakhouse to the 24/7 diner perfect for satiating those late-night cravings, Virgin Voyages take food, and the experience around it, seriously.

This is your holiday and they’ve made it a point to ensure that you get a healthy dose of Vitamin Sea… This means there are no kids on board. From workout classes and gym facilities to luxe spa treatments, the adults-only voyage gives you plenty of chances to relax, rejuvenate, and restore. And if you want to sit back and do nothing, fresh-pressed juices served poolside will make “nothing” feel like everything.

And when you’re done with whatever self-care looks like for you, the one-of-a-kind, I’ve-definitely-never-seen-anything-like this-before entertainment awaits your arrival. Between modern, larger-than-life retellings of Romeo and Juliet (with a circus twist) and immersive pop-up acts that happen organically throughout the voyage, you’ll see the ship brought to life in new and unexpected ways.

As for digs, you’ll be kicking back in The Sea Terrace (or Limited View Sea Terrace, depending on availability). Designed to give sweeping views of the horizon from the front and back zones of the ship, these cabins boast a configurable bed and high-tech mood lighting, allowing you to transform the space and create your own vibe. To top it all off, the hammock on the terrace is perfect for a little ‘me’ time, while the 24-hour food delivery service is on hand to thwart any pesky 2am cravings.

Word of advice: don’t pay for any flights or transfers until your place on board is confirmed by Virgin Voyages! Spaces are filling up quickly, so pick your jaw off the floor and make a splash by booking your spot today. Hurry, these cabins will be gone faster than you can say “cannonball”.

Virgin Voyages Miami

I fancy a Caribbean cruise instead …..

And why not? (Apart from the need to fly to Miami.)

There are also cruises on Scarlet Lady, the first Virgin Voyages ship. The timings are the same – book by 19th June (or until cabins run out) for travel by 16th October. Look on the Virgin Voyages website to see which cruises operate on which dates.

Here are your options:

Fire & Sunset Soirées (115,000 points)

  • Day 1 – Miami. Departs at 1900
  • Day 2 – Key West or Nassau. Arrives at 0800, departs at 1900
  • Day 3 – Beach club at Bimini. Arrives at 0800, departs at 2000
  • Day 4 – Sailing
  • Day 5 – Miami. Arrives at 0630

Riviera Maya (125,000 points)

  • Day 1 – Miami. Departs at 1900
  • Day 2 – Sailing
  • Day 3 – Cozumel, Playa del Carmen. Arrives at 0800, departs at 2200
  • Day 4 – Sailing
  • Day 5 – Beach club at Bimini. Arrives at 0800, departs at 2000
  • Day 6 – Miami. Arrives at 0630

Dominican Daze (125,000 points)

As above but Day 3 is in Puerto Plata

Mayan Sol (125,000 points)

As above but Day 3 is in Costa Maya

The Caribbean cruises are poorer value, because you are using more points for a shorter cruise, plus you will need flights to Miami. These cruises are also discounted for cash until the end of May.

Note that there is no guarantee that you can book the exact cruise you want, although in reality – with loads reportedly low – it shouldn’t be a problem. No-one who booked when this offer ran a couple of weeks ago had any trouble getting the dates they wanted.

If you want to find out more about Virgin Voyages, here is our report from an afternoon on ‘Scarlet Lady’, the first ship in the fleet.

You can book via the Virgin Red app or online. Filter the ‘Spend’ options by ‘High To Low Points’ to find them quickly.

    Caribbean ones still showing……

  • Lloyd says:

    How do you get an Access Key to use on Virgin Voyages?

  • Ben says:

    Anyone know how long it takes to transfer Tesco to Virgin – keen to book this but it says up to 28 days

    • Rob says:

      Usually 2-3 days but no guarantees – and indeed no guarantee this offer will come back.

  • Mark Cooper says:

    The offer is available again – I redeemed the 95000 points for the Med cruise at 16:30.

  • Jas says:

    how long have the codes been taking to arrive?

  • rob(staaaar) says:

    I can the confirm the recent 80K points Portsmouth – Portugal – Spain 12-nighter was absolutely fantastic. The destinations, cuisine, entertainment and overall vibe was great. I didn’t experience the ‘couldn’t give a toss’ attitude from staff that some have reported. I wasn’t interested in and didn’t attend the more dubious ‘adult-themed’ so can’t comment – hey-ho, each to their own I say! Though I did max-out and binge-watch a few TV shows I’d never seen on the in-cabin home cinema!

    Granted, this was my first cruise experience, so nothing else similar to compare with, but other seasoned cruisers I spoke with couldn’t speak highly enough of VV. Yeah, the redemption doesn’t include alcohol, but this was no probs for me (and glad not to be surrounded by group-loads of p1$$-heads!); I couldn’t think of a better way to burn a stash of my almost 300K VS points.

    My thoughts: If you the have dates available, aren’t fussed by an erratic, inconsistent ‘Sailor app’, don’t need anything but THE most basic wi-fi – just jump right in and book (if the offer’s still showing!).

    I concur with others’ comments about VV’s seeming desperation to fill their ships and their med/long term viability. All the more to experience this now before they pull the metaphorical plug on the lot…

    ps. I had a Sea Terrace cabin, which was just fine for me.

    • David Cliff says:

      I was on the same Cruise, also using the points offer ! I cant agree with you more.. the whole trip was superb and the staff were brilliant !! Food was excellent, although briefly lacking during mid-afternoon. The only thing i was not overly keen on was the Red Room theatre shop… bit too modern for my liking !
      However… i was so impressed with VV i have booked their April 2024 repositioning cruise San Juan (Puerto Rico) – Lisbon, and will be using my Avios for the flights.

  • Simon says:

    Is this 7nt Med cruise available to non-UK residents? i am a Canadian with US address. when i clicked the offer link via HfP, first thing i see is “We think you in United Kingdom. Select country to see content and explore rewards specific to your location” … if I select United States, I only see the 125k pts Caribbean offer.

    • Rob says:

      Good question. Perhaps they have blocked it on practical grounds because they don’t expect you’d be interested? If you can get it show via a VPN I’m sure you’d be fine.

      • Simon says:

        Thanks Rob … but my Flying Club details are US … do u know if I can have an US address on Flying Club and an UK address (my inlaw) on Virgin Red?

        • Rob says:

          You’ll find out when you try … this has never come up before.

  • Grimz says:

    It’s still there today so have just jumped in…..it’s my first cruise so hopefully it’s worth it
