The Cabanas on Virgin Voyages’ ships promise an exclusive, upscale experience, offering guests a semblance of privacy amidst the flurry of shipboard activities. Yet, one can’t help but question: does the cost and service provided justify the promise of an enhanced cruising experience?

The Cabana Experience

The Cabanas are a series of semi-private spaces, adorned with plush furniture and sunshades, stationed strategically on the ship’s sun decks. The intention is clear: to offer guests a tranquil haven, a comfortable hideaway from the energetic pulse of the ship’s heart.

Value for Money?

Despite the obvious appeal, the value proposition of these Cabanas may not quite hit the mark. The steep reservation cost has been a point of contention, as the level of service included doesn’t appear to align with the price tag. The promise of dedicated waiter service, while appreciated, doesn’t quite fill the gap in expectations, especially when unique food or beverage packages are not part of the deal.

When one also considers the availability of free and equally comfortable lounging options onboard, the cost of the Cabanas might appear a tad high.

A Matter of Privacy

The Cabanas’ location on the bustling sun decks raises another concern – the question of privacy. While they’re billed as semi-private spaces, they are far from secluded. With their high visibility amidst the public areas, guests looking for a truly private retreat might find this setup less than ideal.

On a brighter note, the Cabanas provide a front-row seat to the mesmerizing dance of the sea, making them a perfect lounging spot for those captivated by ocean vistas.

Our Thoughts

In conclusion, while The Cabanas offer a seemingly exclusive oasis on deck, the actual value they provide may not align with the expectations set by their premium price. They could be a delightful treat for some, but those contemplating a Cabana reservation should consider whether the current service offering meets their definition of an exclusive, private retreat.
