Virgin To Build Three Ships As Company Promises To Change Cruising Forever

Virgin has announced it will build three identical 110,000 GT cruise ships over the next six years, which promise to “not be your average cruise ships.”

At a press conference in Miami, the brand also announced it would change its name from Virgin Cruises to Virgin Voyages.

Construction on the first of three 110,000 GT ships, each carrying 2,800 passengers, will start in late 2017 at the Fincantieri shipyard in Genoa, Italy. The first ship will launch in 2020, along with a further two ships in 2022.

Virgin Voyages also announced a revolutionary partnership with Climeon, which will turn waste heat into electricity, helping Virgin’s fleet become one of the cleanest at sea.
