There is no dress code but expect lots of chic rent-a-runway style duds in the evening. The vessels were designed by 10 land-based architects featuring spaces that are more reminiscent of hotels than other cruise ships. The nightlife is expected to be one of virgin voyages’ highlights with lots of bars and lounges and unusual night activities, including aerialists, comedy, pop-up music, interactive theatre and more. On the contrary, there will be no traditional big-stage production shows. Throughout the day, partake in virgin’s vitamin sea philosophy focusing on daytime relaxation and wellness with detox, retox array of activities.
