 Virtuoso Voyages

The best things in life are free, and the best experiences, shared.

Available only to those who book their cruise through a Virtuoso affiliated travel agency, for more than 20 years the Virtuoso Voyages program has offered complimentary benefits aboard the world’s finest ships on hundreds of annual departures.

Dedicated Onboard Host
Onboard your cruise, you’ll be greeted by a dedicated Virtuoso Voyages host. Committed to ensuring that you thoroughly enjoy your cruise, your host will be available to you throughout your sailing to answer any questions you may have, and to ensure everything goes smoothly. Additionally, your host will introduce you to other Virtuoso Voyages passengers whom you’ll meet at the exclusive Virtuoso Voyages welcome aboard cocktail reception.

Welcome Aboard Reception
Once onboard, you’ll be invited to attend a private cocktail reception planned exclusively for you and your fellow Virtuoso Voyages participants. Your onboard host attends to every detail, and will make introductions. As everyone begins to get to know one another, you’ll ease into your cruise, and sense an easy camaraderie developing.

Camaraderie of Fellow Cruisers
Even if you’re sailing with family or friends, building such wonderful memories with other like-minded travelers adds an unexpected extra to your cruise. After you share a few great meals, and experience a phenomenal shore excursion together, you might just realize you’ve become friends.

Exclusive Shore Excursion
With our worldwide contacts, Virtuoso plans exclusive shore events especially for Virtuoso Voyages guests. Whether immersing yourself in the local culture, or enjoying VIP access to closed-to-the-public venues and experiences, your shore event will likely be the highlight of your sailing. Ask your Virtuoso travel advisor for details about full-day events, or alternatives to these like a special gift or shipboard credit on select dates.
