Virgin Voyages is sailing in the UK?


Recommended Posts

Just been notified, on sale April 13th, will be taking a close look.

 

For only three weeks in August, Scarlet Lady will be making six, short and sweet sailings around the southern coast of England — giving you a sneak-peek of who she is and what she’s all about. It’s the staycation-at-sea you’ve dreamed about all year, all while being the first to set sail on Scarlet on either a four-night Summer WeekDaze voyage, a three-night Long Weekender voyage, or book both sailings back-to-back for a full week at sea.”

I'll believe it when I see it... After being cancelled on five different times, I moved my next target sailing to May / June of 2022...

Booked this morning, just after 9am. 4 day sailing balcony cabin 2 people £1198 with $200 cabin credit. Wifi inc, tips incl, non alco drnks inc. I think thats a competitive price price compared to the other uk local cruises on offer at moment. 

Never cruised from Portsmouth - need to check parking

How did you get the cabin credit, what offer is this? Thanks!

I booked direct on the virgin website  - cabin credit varies on grade of cabin from $200 upwards. . I did nothing special it is available.

I have booked parking with CPS. Cheaper at portsmouth then southampton £44 for 4 days as against £60 at southampton. If you do not want valet with cps then  virgin have a special rate at the multistorey at £30 for 4 days.

I have booked a 4 night cruise for the 16th. Really looking forward to this cruise to nowhere after having so many cancellations this past year. Toying with the idea of getting a train to Portsmouth instead of driving, but if Virgin have that special parking rate then we might drive instead. 
The on board credit was an unexpected bonus .

Do you think they will lay on anything especially for solo travellers?!

 

I have to go it alone as unable to take child so he is staying at home with husband.  No other available companions!!  I must say the solo rate is excellent at only £479!

Thanks, how strange I have tried a few cabins and never see any OBC available.  Thanks anyway.

There is no mention until you complete the booking and pay, then it appeared on the confirmation. I thought it to be a good price without the OBC so was pleased when it got even better

Received our confirmation and cabin number plus the $200 "Sailor's Loot" (love Virgin's quirks and play on words). That makes it a better deal IMHO.

They do both

Ah, I get it now... same hotel does both ports! The ‘Southampton’ in the title threw me!

 

I’m still struggling to price it up though, can’t find the cruise parking rate... can anyone help? Don’t know if I’m just doing something wrong!

It’s the night of the 5th August I’m looking for...
