The new Virgin Voyages will offer sleek yacht-like spaces, classic nautical accents, inventive surprises and links to Virgin's British heritage.
The ships are being designed by a variety of leading interior design companies who are creating a contemporary feel to the ship.
The President and CEO of Virgin Voyages, Tom McAlpin, commented: “We know our sailors will love the look, feel and the element of surprise they‘ve created as well.” He also went on to say: “Our design partners together with our internal design team have dreamed up eye-catching, intimate and alluring spaces that we can’t wait to see come to life.”
There are many notable highlights featured on the ships will establish a unique experience for cruise guests. One of which includes The Athletic Club that incorporates a raised jogging track that effortlessly floats above the ship. This will be a distinctive element of the ship that will stand out with it's vibrant red colour which is the official colour of the Virgin brand. There will also be a net for guests to relax on, almost as if they were sailing on a catamaran.

A second outdoor lounge will be added, this will be called The Dock and it will boast gorgeous views from the ship in what will be a comfortable and social space.
An exciting addition to the ships will be a large outdoor lounge which will specifically be for the suite guests. This lounge will be called Richard's Rooftop which is named after the founder of the Virgin Group, Sir Richard Branson. In dedication to him, there will also be a nightclub that will be inspired by his music industry history.
In terms of dining, there will be a Mexican restaurant that includes a bar and separate dining room as well as a themed restaurant that is based on a laboratory-like environment called The Test Kitchen. More details regarding other dining venues will be released at a later stage, along with additional renderings of the interior spaces.
