Greek Islands Gay Bears Cruise 2023

 

The new sailing experience that is bringing about an epic sea change for all. This experience is a lot of things, but definitely not your traditional cruise. Instead, expect a voyage that cultivates curiosity, encourages experiences and advocates adventure.

Virgin Voyages offers a cheeky and cheerful approach to service, as well as an inclusive approach to sea travel that removes those pesky add-ons. Sailors will enjoy food at the 20+ restaurants onboard (at no added cost). Free fitness clases and free wifi (so you can share your favourite holidays snaps whilst living for the moment!). Aimed at providing a transformative experience through a liberal dose of ‘Vitamin Sea’, the Virgin Voyages ideology places the ocean and its role in both personal and global wellbeing at centre stage.

Virgin Voyages Brand New Resilient Lady

Virgin Voyages' third ship due to set sail May 2023. Be one of the first sailors to experience this revolutionary ship design where interior spaces were curated by world-renowned interior designers Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio, New York’s Roman and Williams, Concrete Amsterdam and Softroom.

The Resilient Lady has pulled out all the stops to become a floating design icon. From the VIP top deck, club lounge and sky rooms through to that unique tattoo studio, you’ll find that no detail has been overlooked. You’ll be cruising the Mediterranean in a ship that’s full of theatrical spaces and nautical touches, spiced up with a sense of drama and fun. And not a beige bedspread in sight.

 

Resilient Lady pool deck

 

Luxury Ship Features
If you’re in the Mediterranean, you better make absolutely sure you’re making the most of every sun-kissed second. The Dock, the ship’s exclusive outdoor lounge, is where you can find total peace and tranquillity, with just the gentle sound of the waves and the occasional chatter of dolphins as they play in the bow waves. Feeling a little more active? The Athletic Club is the spot to head to, with the world’s largest daybed (they never do anything by halves onboard the Resilient Lady) to relax on when you need a breather from all that chilling out.

 

Greece Bears Voyage 2023

 

At night, the stars emerge with the glitz and glamour of The Manor nightclub. This dazzling club tips a nod to Richard Branson, charting his history in the music industry, and then celebrating that heritage by banging out some insane tunes until the small hours. If you want a break from the beat, head out on deck where you can gaze out at the ocean while a billion stars shine. This is the stuff memories are made of (oops, looks like another trip to Squid Ink, then…).

 

Resilient Lady Razzle Dazzle

 

Fuelling up on Food
No luxury ship is complete without food, food, and more food, and the Resilient Lady doesn’t short-change you when it comes to chowing down. There’s over 20 choices of meals whenever you’re peckish – there’s no set menus or enforced meal times here. Whether you want a healthy snack at 6am or a midnight feast, the crew will cater for you.

First up, there’s Razzle Dazzle, where you’ll discover your inner vegan. Or, try the gloriously opulent Pink Algarve, serving Mexican fusion with all the trimmings.

And wait, what’s this? Street food onboard a ship? At the Resilient Lady’s Galley, you’ll find eight different food stalls selling everything from tacos to sushi, burgers to bento boxes and noodles. You may be cruising the Med, but that doesn’t mean the rest of the world can’t join in.

 

Resilient Lady Spa

 

Wellness and Zen Time on your Adult Voyage
There’s a concept at Virgin Voyages – Vitamin Sea. There’s nothing quite like the ocean to restore that inner wellness we all crave, so onboard you’ll get the time to re-energise with some state-of-the-art activities in the Crow’s Nest.

You can detox with sunrise or sunset yoga classes, or retox with a few rounds in the boxing ring. The B-Complex gym space gets your heart pumping with some serious cardio, or go for some zen time in Redemption, the Resilient Lady’s onboard spa.

Wallow about in glorious mud pools, get your chakras aligned on a quartz bed, or zone out with a spa treatment. Be warned, though: at night this mermaid’s hideaway transforms into a killer club, where the resident DJ gets things buzzing with some serious tunes.

 

Virgin bears cruise

 

Resilient Lady entertainment - mind-blowing revelry
Grab your glad rags, throw on your dancing shoes and be prepared to be amazed by some of the best cruise ship entertainment on the high seas. Virgin Voyages are going back to their musical roots with on board entertainment that’ll have you boogying until the sun comes up. Choose from a line-up of brand new, original shows and gigs developed by some of the best entertainers in the business. Like everything else on the Valiant Lady, cruise entertainment doesn’t get much better than this.

Just keep levelling up with an on-board party at the Manor, the Resilient Lady’s exclusive nightclub. Bag some front-row seats in the Red Room and be prepared to laugh your socks off or just stare slack-jawed in amazement at 21st-century magic and mayhem. The festival vibe keeps the curious entertained, and the cravers coming back for more. After a glorious meal and the best cocktails, it’s time to dance until dawn as the Resilient Lady steams her way to your next port of call.

 

Virgin Bears cruise stateroom

 

Slumber at Sea in Luxury Cabins
Time for some snoozing, and Virgin Voyages have made sure that the cabins maintain that gloriously indulgent luxury you’ll find all over the Resilient Lady. Tom Dixon’s had a hand here too, designing the RockStar suites with flair and individuality, but with absolutely no compromise on comfort. All of the RockStar suites are on Deck 15, just under Richard’s Rooftop (RockStar VIPs get exclusive access to the club).

Book a RockStar suite and you get a host of VIP extras including airport transfers, luggage assistance and a private walk down the terminal pathway on arrival, as well as anytime boarding and early booking for special events. If you want to feel like a real rock star, this is your chance.

Virgin Greek Islands gay bears cruise map

 

Sail from Athens to the most idyllic Greek Isles in the Med - like Santorini, Rhodes, and Bodrum (Turkey). With an overnight in the glamorous gay hot spot of Mykonos, you can immerse yourself in the quiet charm of the island and attend those world-famous beach club parties.

 

Athens gay cruise

 

Days 1 & 8 - Athens (Piraeus), Greece
Few cities are as colorful as Athens — from the street art scene to the bright blue skies and sand-fringed shores. Take in breathtaking views from the Mikrolimano Marina, immerse yourself in ancient Greek history at the Parthenon, and explore the Acropolis; which remains the heart of the city.

Piraeus is the port of Athens. Serving as the gateway to the past and civilization as we know it, Athens is far more than the Acropolis. Nowhere on earth are mans past accomplishments more dramatically displayed as a backdrop to a modern metropolis. Spend time exploring ancient ruins, viewing incalculable treasures or just relax as another day evolves in the cradle of civilization.

 

Santorini gay bears cruise

 

Day 2 - Santorini, Greece
Perched at the very top of precipitous cliffs, Santorini towers above its original harbor and was once reached only by foot or mule. Today a cable car is the best route. The island scenery is unique in all the world with jagged outcroppings of red and black lava and stairways cut deep in the cliffsides.

Santorini's spectacular caldera is a vestige of what was probably the biggest volcanic eruption in recorded history, believed by some to have caused the disappearance of Atlantis. The island's violent volcanic history is visible everywhere you look - in black-sand beaches, earthquake-damaged dwellings and raw cliffs of lava plunging into the sea.

 

Rhodes, Greece bears cruise

 

Day 3 - Rhodes, Greece
Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese Islands, is truly a vacation destination with something for everyone: sunshine, spectacular beaches on the Aegean Sea, a medieval walled city, an ancient acropolis, and much more. In ancient times, the people of Rhodes chose Helios, the Sun, as their divine patron. With an average of three hundred plus days of sunshine a year, it's safe to say that Helios continues to smile upon Rhodes today.

 

Bodrum, Turkey bears cruise

 

Day 4 - Bodrum, Turkey
When Turkish history and culture meets the blue waters of the Aegean, magical things are bound to happen. Some travelers will begin right at the sea, whether that means lounging under an umbrella on the shimmering sands of Bodrum Beach or sipping Raki cocktails at a waterfront bar along Milta Bodrum Marina. If you want to work up a sweat before you relax, one of the best things to do in Bodrum, Turkey, is explore its ancient history.

 

Greece bears cruise sea day

 

Day 5 - Fun Day at Sea!
While at sea, take the time to recharge before the next adventure. Lounge by the pool, be spoiled at the spa, taste the delicacies or explore the venues on-board, until we arrive at the next amazing destination.

 

Mykonos gay cruise

 

Days 6 & 7 - Mykonos, Greece
Beautifully reflected in a golden light, the white-washed fishing lodges, charming chapels and windmills of Mykonos present visitors with a picture-perfect enchanted island. Spend private time on one of many beaches or wander through the Venice Quarter where tiny cottages perch precariously on cliffs above the sea. Gay Mykonos is famous for its sand and sea. Get lost looking out at the endless waters of the Aegean Sea as you grab a little sun on one of its beautiful beaches.
