About the ‘The Insider’ cabin category in general

Insider cabins are surprisingly roomy for inside cabins, they offer all the same amenities as their Sea View or Sea Terrace counterparts, the only different being - they're inside! As a more affordable option, they will still offer the full Virgin Voyages experience, just without so much of the fresh sea air.

    We found there was a steady thumping sound at night from the Red Room above.
    The tv is on the side wall and had a swivel stand which blocked one side of the bed. Just ask for bed to be slid over towards the door to avoid hitting tv.
    The automatic door to the bathroom was frustrating. It opened and closed very slowly and could open if non-user was passing by the sensor.
