WILL I HAVE TO SHOW PROOF OF VACCINATION AND/OR BE TESTED IN ORDER TO SAIL?
In keeping in line with the rest of the travel industry, we’re now opening our voyages to everyone and have removed all vaccine and testing requirements beginning 10/30/22 on Valiant Lady.
DO I NEED A PASSPORT?
Inked@Sea STRONGLY RECOMMENDS THAT ALL OF OUR GUESTS TRAVEL WITH A VALID PASSPORT
Having a valid passport will help to expedite your debarkation experience as delays may occur upon return to the United States for those without one. Additionally, this will enable guests to fly from the U.S. to meet their ship at a foreign port should they miss their scheduled port of embarkation and allow guests who must disembark the ship before their cruise ends due to an emergency to fly back to the U.S. without significant delays and complications.
However passports are not required. Guests are able to sail with an original or certified copy of their birth certificate and a valid government issued photo ID.
The name on your cruise reservation/ticket MUST MATCH the name on your passport (or birth certificate and government-issued photo I.D., see below). Please click here regarding name changes as the result of a marriage, divorce or other legal name change, for information on additional documentation you may need to provide (such as a marriage certificate, etc).

The homepage for Virgin Voyage’s website can be found HERE.
What is the dress code?
We always want all of our Sailors to feel comfortable. We encourage you to wear more than a bathing suit if you go to a restaurant and kindly consider shoes, but your style is your style. Who are we to judge?
Dress Up. Dress Down. Just Dress.
At Virgin Voyages we’re all about Sailors feeling free to express who they are and we know personal style is a huge part of that. Prescribing formal attire requirements just isn’t our style.
What is the smoking policy?
Smoking will only be permitted in a designated smoking room and on the top deck outdoor area. Smoking is not allowed on any cabin terraces.
Smoking of any kind outside of designated areas (even with a "vape" device) will result in a $500 fee, is a material breach of your ticket contract, and may result in you being disembarked at the next port with no refund. Any repatriating fees will be charged to your onboard account.
Is there Wi-Fi on board?
Yes, unlimited WiFi browsing is included for all Sailors. So there's no charge for social media, email, web browsing or messaging. For our Caribbean sailings, an upgraded premium entertainment package will also be available for just a bit extra to support streaming - subject to availability.
A bit like on an airplane, WiFi at sea is restricted. Sailors using either our complimentary basic WiFi network or our Premium WiFi in the Caribbean may connect up to 2 devices simultaneously.
How can I book an onboard cabana?
Sailors can book onboard cabanas once they’re on board, by chatting or visiting our Sailor Services Crew on Deck 5.
Do you have a lost & found on board?
Absolutely. You can find it at the Sailor Services desk on Deck 5.
Health & Safety
Is there a doctor on board?
You bet. We'll have a licensed physician and nurses on board at all times while sailing.
What happens if I get sea sick?
Medical Services are located on Deck 4. If it's an emergency, dial 911 on any phone, or press SOS on the app and tablet.
I'm having motion discomfort. Where can I go for medical assistance?
Head to Deck 4 where our Medical Center is located, and we can help get you sorted out.
Do I have to wear a mask on board?
Our most important goal is to keep you safe and healthy, and with emerging variants — we all need to be extra mindful while traveling. Based on local regulations, masks may be required during embarkation and disembarkation in COVID testing sites, terminal buildings, and while on shuttle bus services.
Masks will be provided on request. We’ll be following local government guidelines at each port as it pertains to mask-wearing, and we ask that you follow the experts’ advice and do the same while traveling.
What happens if a Sailor feels sick or tests positive while on board?
Sailors who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 should immediately contact our medical center so that we can provide the appropriate care and treatment if required. Our Medical Crew is equipped to test for COVID-19.
In the event a positive case of COVID-19 is identified, we immediately enact a series of proven protocols, including isolation and contact tracing, to identify, isolate and mitigate any further transmission. These measures are above and beyond most other industries because we are resolutely focused on keeping our Crew and Sailors well.
Are there wheelchairs available?
Sailors requiring regular use of a wheelchair/scooter should bring their own or rent from one of our vendors. However, wheelchairs may be available for emergency use at the terminal for embarkation.
