Book Virgin Voyages with Points

Virgin Voyages has brought back a popular promotion where you can book some fantastic cruises using Virgin Points.

The pricing on these cruises is higher than when they first ran this deal last year. However, with two transfer bonuses from American Express and Chase, it is still a pretty good deal for cruise lovers.

The Deals

Mediterranean sailings are available for Virgin Red members for 160,000 Virgin Points. Lucky Virgin Red sailors will be able to embark on an award-winning, seven-night Mediterranean voyage departing from either Barcelona or Athens. Virgin Voyages offers itineraries with departure dates Sunday-Sunday from May through mid-October for Barcelona sailings and May through to the end of July for Athens sailings. 

For those ready to sail the Med as soon as possible, Virgin Red has launched a flash sale for seven-night sailings from Barcelona, departing on Sunday 12 May or Sunday 19 May, for the discounted points price of just 120,000 Virgin Points.  

Five-night Caribbean sailings departing from Miami between June and September are also available on Virgin Red for 115,000 Virgin Points.

And last but not least, you can also book transatlantic sailings from Barcelona (14 nights) for 280,000 Virgin Points or from Athens (16 nights) for 320,000 Virgin Points. 

Key Details

Cabins are Central Sea Terrace or The Sea Terrace on Scarlet Lady or Resilient Lady, and will be determined by Virgin Voyages according to availability. The price is per cabin (one or two persons). There is no single sailor supplement available.

Virgin Red recommends that bookings should be completed no later than five business days before the date of travel.

Get More Value with Transfer Bonuses

This deal gets better if you have Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards. Both programs are offering a 30% bonus.

That means that five-night Caribbean sailings departing from Miami would cost you just 89,000 points or two people. Seven-night sailings from Barcelona would cost 93,000 points.
