Virgin Voyages unveils details of first cruise ship

Virgin Voyages.jpg


Virgin Voyages will be a fleet of three ships which will come in to service between 2020 and 2022. They will be known as the ‘Lady Ships’, a play on the term ‘your ladyship’, which the line said was a nod to British heritage.

The first cruise ship will be adult-only. The decision to not allow children on board was taken after consulting travel professionals and “future sailors” – Virgin’s term for passengers.

The ship’s design, which was unveiled at a keel-laying ceremony at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Genoa, Italy, today (Tuesday), will feature a silvery-grey hull, with smoked glass and splashes of red, while a mermaid design will feature on the bow of the ship.

The first 2,860-passenger ship will be delivered in 2020 and will sail in the Caribbean.

Well, the ship certainly looks quite impressive, and I definitely prefer adult-only ships to the other kind, so who knows? Perhaps we might be tempted... :think:

I do think the term 'future sailors' is daft though. :roll:
