You need to be 18+ to win as the cruises are adults only.

Feedback from readers who booked the exceptionally generous Virgin Points redemption deals has been very positive. You can read some of the feedback and tips in our Virgin Voyages Masterthread in the forums.

Virgin Voyages Mediterranean cruises are still available for redemption this Autumn for just 115,000 Virgin Points for seven nights.

PS. Virgin Voyages is now selling a handful of one-way repositioning cruises with its newest ship, Brilliant Lady, in early 2024. Trips include:

  • Australia to Singapore (15 nights)
  • Singapore to Dubai (14 nights)
  • Dubai to Athens (14 nights)

You can also combine all three for a six-week epic. You can see those cruises here.
