Virgin Voyages – French Daze and Ibiza Nights
Virgin Voyages are the new kid on the block, with their cruises launching in just 2021. These adults-only cruises offer the very best in onboard activities, dinners, and entertainment. You can expect to experience extravagant performances and parties with risqué themes, like drag queen bingo and a sex therapy cabaret show. You may be hard-pushed to even want to get off the boat at times!
Virgin Voyages provide the best big ship experience and are incredibly welcoming as one of the most gay-friendly cruises in the travel industry. They offer a range of voyages, but French Daze and Ibiza Nights is one of their best, a 7-night trip through western European waters.
Setting off from the popular holiday destination of Barcelona, it first ports in Marseille – lovingly referred to as the crossroads of France. The second biggest city in France, its medieval vibe is a great introduction to French culture. The third day takes you to the glamorous French city – Cannes, with designer bars and couture stores to peruse. Day four sees you setting sail for the Spanish island of Palma de Mallorca. You can spend two days exploring the vibrant island, visiting a local winery, and, of course, hitting the beach.
Finally, the voyage arrives in the ever-popular Ibiza, where you are free to soak up some more sun for two days or hit the isle´s (in)famous nightlife before returning to Barcelona. Just be sure you make it back to the boat in time!
