About VV Insider

VV Insider was founded in August 2023 by two frequent sailors (Rob Sammons & David Todd) who love Virgin Voyages. We have over a decade of cruising experience across the industry

Independent of any Travel Agency or Third Party

We are not travel agents and do not work with third parties, which means we are an entirely independent source of information with no affiliations. We create content that is free from commercial bias, providing a reliable resource where the Virgin Voyages community can find information and share their experiences.

Looking to Book a Virgin Voyage?

We cannot help you book a voyage as we are not travel agents. We recommend researching for ‘Gold Standard’ First Mates or book directly on the Virgin Voyages website.

Are you a Travel Agent/Facebook Admin?

Recognizing the vital role travel agents and group admins have in cruise planning, we aim to foster a collaborative relationship. We hope that VV Insider serves as a valuable tool for sailors, no matter where they booked. We invite travel agents and Facebook group admins to send us a message to find out more.

The Story

We’ve been sailing on cruise ships for over a decade with many years on Disney Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises, Viking Ocean amongst others.

When we first discovered Virgin Voyages in August 2021 from Portsmouth, UK we were amazed by the new approach to cruising that was more in line with the way we like to cruise. Since then we have sailed with friends and family a combined 25+ Virgin Voyages sailings across all three ships bringing a wealth of experience to the website.

The idea for VV Insider was born out of a love for the brand but also in providing accurate up to date information for other sailors on board the voyages. We have an extensive catalog of pages and add more weekly to ensure we provide sailors with the latest information.

We also collaborate with other sailors who will regularly provide us with up to date content and imagery. If you’d like to help with our efforts please do let us know.
