The three ships will be part of the Lady-ship class and the first ship will be named via a contest. Each of the three 110,000 gross tonne ships will accommodate 2,800-passengers, although Virgin Voyages prefer to refer to passengers as ‘sailors’.
Virgin Voyages is offering a pre-sale reservation, where a $500 deposit is required to guarantee a spot on the list for a cabin on the first ship in 2020. Deposits cover two ‘sailors’ and a fully refundable.
In a statement Virgin Voyages said: "Adorned at the hull you’ll find our beautiful, mermaid guide. Inspired by the traditional bows from ships of yore, she is our ship’s muse. The soul of the voyage. Our elegant leader. The feminine spirit of the ship.”
