Caribbean Weekenders

Weekend(ish) getaways that won’t eat up your PTO

Running out of time off? On these weekend(ish) itineraries you’ll sail the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean and be back before the boss even notices you’re gone.

You deserve a sparkling summer. With multiple itineraries of 4 to 5-nights leaving out of Miami, you can explore all the Caribbean has to offer – from the dreamy Dominican Republic to charming Costa Maya — and be back in time for the Monday grind. Plus, every itinerary also features a stop at our private Beach Club at Bimini, so you can soak in the Bahamian sun in perfect, undisturbed luxury. Don’t wait to book lifelong memories made in one long weekend.

With extra sips and savings, it’s time to set your sights on paradise.


Key West

It’s all a breeze in the keys.

Famous for its crimson and gold-hued sunsets, Key West is more than just a spot to admire the painted skies (but of course, it is that, too). An adopted home to some of America’s most seminal writers, Key West is an apex of gorgeous cultural collision and celebration. Bahamian Conch, Cuban and African-American cultural heritage create the backbone for the inclusive and accepting philosophy of Key West’s “One Human Family”.


Puerto Plata

Unrivaled beauty in the Dominican Republic.

Tucked between the Cordillera Mountains and Atlantic coast, Puerto Plata embodies geographical duality at its best. A day here can include vegging out on the snow white beaches of Playa Dorada, or hiking through the jungle to the 27 waterfalls of Damajagua and careening down via natural slides. Or you can jump right in. We won't tell you how to live.


Cozumel/ Playa del Carmen

Underwater exploration and sun-drenched mezcal tasting in Mexico.

The Riviera Maya features some of the world’s most stunning coral reefs and sea creatures — which can be viewed up close on snorkel and dive trips, or even off the beach. El Cielo (“The Sky”) in Cozumel offers a secluded sanctuary perfect for starfish-viewing or simply floating in gentle waves with a drink in hand. With Playa del Carmen’s eclectic nightlife just across the isle and effortlessly cool Tulum only a stone’s throw away, this port serves as a gateway to the three best spots in Mexico.

Heavenly beaches, historic bliss

Grand Turk

Embark from Miami, sail to our private Beach Club at Bimini, and explore the heavenly beaches of Grand Turk all on one incredible five-night journey.

It’s the Caribbean Weekender to end all Caribbean Weekenders. This five-night itinerary out of Miami will take you first to the Bahamian paradise of Bimini, where you’ll enjoy undisturbed luxury at our private beach club. Then, you’ll head to Grand Turk where snow white beaches give way to rich history. You’ll see it all while enjoying our award-winning lady ship, five-star dining, and always included luxury accommodations. Who says a few days away can’t change your life?

Reasons to take a Quick & Dreamy Getaway:

Miami is *this* close

Non-stop flights from New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Dallas, Boston, Chicago, Charlotte, Toronto and more fly in/out of Miami (and Fort Lauderdale) every day.

Anytime relaxation

Couples in search of spending time together. Solos seeking rest and adventure. A Vitamin Sea reset before holidays with the in-laws — last-minute plans are super easy when it’s Quick & Dreamy.

Group Getaways

Anniversary? Birthday? Promotion? Bachelor/ette party? There’s always a reason to celebrate — plus, our Splash for your Bash packages take every new celebration way above sea level.

No kids, no kidding

Bargaining, tantrums, sticky hands (how?!) — nope, not on our exclusively adult (18+) getaways. Of course it’s not your kids, you’re simply getting away from other people’s kids.

"My husband and I would choose a Cruise with Virgin every single time."

Everything they include means you aren't constantly reaching into your pocket or worried about your bill at the end. Compared to hotels right now,  cruising is the best value.

"Cruising for sure."

You get to go to exciting places and take your hotel with you, and with Virgin, you get to do it in style. Their private beach club is so cool. I have been spoiled by them forever.

"It's a no brainer for my wife and I."

Virgin offers such an incredible vacation and incredible value. The vibe is unmatched. Sitting in the hammock looking out over the ocean as the world sails by is everything. We bought one for our home to create our slice of Virgin Voyages on our patio.

Always Included Luxury

Brilliant inclusions on every, adults-only voyage. Perks that put you at the helm of VIP treatment. Like the Caribbean water, we make it crystal clear what you get when you sail with us. We’ve taken care of all the details — so all you have to do is kick back and have the relaxing vacation you deserve. Take a look at everything that we include the moment you step on board — no fine print, no surprise receipts, just exactly what you expected.


Food to elevate your mood

When we say “included,” we mean it. From comfort go-to’s to experimental cuisine, elaborate brunches to Korean BBQ, all our specialty eateries are on us — no hidden tax, no pesky disclaimer, no crowded buffets or designated dining times. Plus, all our food is sustainably sourced, made fresh-to-order, and always tasty. Go ahead, snap that pic (you know you want to) — because we’re picking up the bill.

We’ve taken care of tipping

We’ve reimagined the way people holiday at sea from the hull up — so that epic service becomes the norm. Our Crew is knowledgeable, friendly, and incredibly stylish — but mainly, our Crew is genuinely happy to help you make your vacation one of a kind. So get pampered, taste everything, and enjoy a drink (or two) knowing that all tips are covered. Cheers to that.

Free WiFi for all

Check in with your loved ones. Make new connections aboard. Or post that ice cream selfie before it melts. With WiFi included on every sailing, you can show off share the view with your home crew, find your newest best friends online, or check in on your email (look, we get it, sometimes it’s hard to *fully* let go) — because, let’s be honest, in this day and age, WiFi should be considered as essential as water.


Unlimited group workouts

For the 'do-nothings,' the 'do-somethings' and the 'do-literally-everythings' (you know who you are), we have tons of group fitness classes on board so that you can sea the world and keep your #FitnessGoals going. From sunrise yoga and outdoor boxing to a cycling studio and bungee workouts — you’ll have full access to classes and state-of-the-art gym equipment for unlimited opportunities to break a sweat. And if you’re not the working out kind, well, the views are nice from the gym?

All essential drinks. Always on us.

Hydration is key — especially in a sun-soaked, adventure-filled, energy-buzzing holiday at sea. Start your day with a drip-coffee, quench your post-workout thirst with still and sparkling water, get a non-pressed juice by the pool, or find the perfect soda and end your day in paradise with your favorite bedtime tea. With all essential drinks already covered, you can recharge, free of charge.

Late nights and neon lights

With a festival-like lineup featuring original, first-to-sea productions, extraordinary pop-up acts, and immersive experiences, the entertainment you’ll experience on board is something you’ve never seen before. It’s wild. It’s thought-provoking. It’s a full-on extravaganza. And it couldn’t be anything else. Digging deep into our musical roots, we’ve collaborated with the world’s most-talked-about directors, choreographers, and artists to create the live entertainment only a Virgin brand could.
