Starting May 22 2024, Virgin Voyages is rolling out a new Pre-Voyage Bubbles Add-On package. This exciting addition allows Sailors to purchase a bottle of Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut (750ml) for $105 (USD) and have it delivered to their cabin once the ship reaches international waters.

Key Details

  • Product: Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut (750ml)
  • Price: $105 (USD)
  • Eligibility: Must be 21 years or older
  • Delivery: After reaching international waters
  • Cancellation Policy: Add-on must be purchased or canceled up to 48 hours prior to embarkation

Benefits and Considerations

This new package offers a great way to kickstart your voyage with a touch of luxury. The pre-booking option ensures that Sailors can enjoy their bottle of champagne without any hassle once they are on board.

However, it’s important to note that there is no discount offered on this package compared to Virgin Voyages’ popular “Shake for Champagne” service. With “Shake for Champagne,” sailors can order champagne at any time during their voyage through the Virgin Voyages app by simply shaking their phone.

No Discount?

The absence of a discount on the Pre-Voyage Bubbles Add-On might disappoint some sailors. While the convenience of having the bottle waiting in your cabin is appealing, some might find the price point steep without any added savings. However, prices for champagne may soon increase, and taxes in certain areas, like the Mediterranean, could further inflate costs. Those looking for a more complete package may want to take a look at Splash of Romance which also includes a bottle of Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut.


The Pre-Voyage Bubbles Add-On package is a thoughtful addition for those looking to add a celebratory touch to their cruise from the outset. You would also be able to use any Future Voyage Credit (credit that has been refunded to your account) to purchase these add-ons. However, it is worth weighing the cost against the convenience, especially considering the lack of a price advantage over in-cruise purchases. As a reminder you can also bring up to 2 bottles on board per cabin.
