Be a Karaoke Star at Sea – In Private!

‘The Groupie’ is a delightful offering on Virgin Voyages® cruise ships, designed to elevate your cruise experience to new heights of fun and camaraderie. This private karaoke area brings the joy of singing thousands of songs to you and your friends in a vibrant and lively atmosphere.

Booking Your Spot

To reserve your time in ‘The Groupie,’ all you need to do is add your name and cabin number to a sign-in sheet available at the Groupie desk. Unlike traditional karaoke lounges, ‘The Groupie’ operates on a trust-based system, where guests can book their slots without the need for constant crew supervision. This trust and freedom enhance the relaxed and enjoyable environment, allowing you to focus on having a blast with your fellow karaoke enthusiasts.

  • The Blue Room: Perfect for intimate gatherings of 2-4 people, this cozy space creates an ideal setting for heartfelt duets and solos.
  • The Pink Room: A slightly larger room designed for groups of 4-6 people, providing more space to showcase your vocal talents and share laughs with friends.

A Karaoke Playground

Each ‘Groupie’ room boasts a large-screen TV equipped with a tablet device that unlocks a vast digital catalogue of songs. With thousands of song choices at your fingertips, you’re sure to find your favorite tunes and chart-toppers to sing along to. The tablet also enables you to adjust various settings, such as changing the key of the backing track, managing the volume, and experimenting with special effects like echo and reverb.

Sing, Share, and Laugh

With two wired microphones provided in each room, you and your friends can become the stars of the show. Unleash your inner Mick Jagger or Madonna as you take the stage and perform like never before. The only limitation is the cable length of the microphones, so you may have to stay close to the booth, but that won’t dampen the excitement of your karaoke adventure.


‘The Groupie’ on Virgin Voyages® cruise ships is where karaoke dreams come true at sea. Bookable for free and included in your cruise fare, these private karaoke booths promise hours of laughter, singing, and camaraderie. Whether you’re belting out classic ballads or rocking out to your favorite hits, ‘The Groupie’ sets the stage for an unforgettable karaoke experience onboard. Gather your friends, warm up those vocal cords, and get ready to shine in the spotlight of ‘The Groupie’ – the ultimate karaoke playground at sea.
