Ship Shape: Playfully Relax and Recharge with Virgin Voyages’ Wellness and Fitness Offerings

Among the many temptations on board Virgin Voyages’ vessels, somehow many of them involve my weakness: Champagne. During my two sailings on the flagship Scarlet Lady (Mayan Sol and Riviera Maya), I could shake my phone to deliver a chilled bottle of Moët & Chandon and two flutes to my exact location. I could also enjoy pre-dinner bubbly at Sip Champagne lounge or in the hot tub during happy hour at Richard’s Rooftop, the lounge reserved for suite guests. A neon sign above the main pool deck even advised us to “Save Water, Drink Champagne.” Challenge accepted. Thankfully, there are ample spa and fitness options to counter all that indulgence.
