Celebrate spring break in style with unbreakable April cruise deals.

Celebrate spring break with Virgin Voyages

You know what season is here? No, not spring (well, that, too). Even more excitingly, it’s spring break season, put your responsibilities on hold, and give yourself a much-needed vacation. You made it through four months of winter doldrums — you’ve earned it. But where to start, and where to go? Well, we’re big fans of starting with cruise deals to score legendary travel savings on the spring break trip of a lifetime. And when it comes to cruise deals, we’ve got the best in the biz. Here’s why taking advantage of stellar savings on luxury cruises is always worth it.

Our epic spring break cruise deals

Everyone loves a good deal, especially on spring break. After all, what better way to save a little cash upfront, so you have more to spend on what really matters: excursions, entertainment, alcohol, souvenirs — you get the picture. That’s why we’re offering special cruise deals that’ll make it pretty hard NOT to pull the trigger on a spring break vacation. 

First and foremost, we’re offering up to 80% off your second Sailor, when you book your next cruise vacation. This offer is good for sailings through 2025, so you can benefit even if you’re not spring breaking this year, but planning ahead for a summer cruise or 2025 winter escape. We’ve also got a new Bar Tab Bonus, where we’ll add money to your Bar Tab when you prepay, and perhaps most enticing for spring break, Add a Splash for Your Bash – a $350 value that includes bottomless brunch at The Wake or Razzle Dazzle and a dinner party for your friends with curated bevs and desserts.

The best time to book a cruise for spring break

Whether you’re traveling for spring break, celebrating an April birthday, or looking to take advantage of limited-time cruise deals, there’s really no bad time to book a cruise. Booking a last-minute April cruise for spring break? Awesome. Planning in advance for a summer or winter cruise that’s still months away? That’s fine too. No matter when you’re booking, there are a few pro tips you should always keep in mind.

Before choosing a cruise, the most important thing to consider is how long you want to go for. Do you want a quick 4-night Caribbean jaunt, or an epic 14-night transatlantic odyssey? Both options can satisfy your thirst for a cruise adventure – it all depends on what you’re looking for, and how much time you have to spare for a fulfilling vacation. It’s also important to consider the ports along the itinerary. This might sound obvious, but your vacation will be defined as much by the ship as by your port exploration. If you want to relax on a white sand beach all day, and maybe go ziplining through a jungle, a Caribbean cruise is for you. If you’d rather dive into historic cultural activities and see centuries-old architecture, a Mediterranean cruise might be more your speed. Our Shore Things are a great place to start drawing inspiration.

The best places to travel to for spring break

Deciding to go on a spring break cruise is just the first step. The second is deciding where to go. Luckily, there’s really no wrong answer. These are the best places to visit in April, especially if you’re looking for a little sun.

  • 5 Day Cruise from Miami to the Dominican Republic & Bimini - Our Dominican Daze trip, departing from Miami and sailing to Puerto Plata and Bimini, is the perfect way to get your late-winter dose of sunshine. Take advantage of the Dominican Republic’s legendary white sand beaches, before having a pool party you’ll never forget at Bimini, our exclusive beach club in the Bahamas. 
  • Round trip 5 Day Cruise from Miami to Mexico & Bahamas - This 5-night Riviera Maya sailing from Miami visits Cozumel (Playa del Carmen) and the Beach Club at Bimini. The ultimate spring break trip, hitting some of the Caribbean’s best highlights, you’ll be able to explore ancient ruins one day and have a beach club party the next. What more can you ask for?
  • 5 Day Round trip Cruise from Miami to Turks and Caicos and Bimini - Explore one of our newest ports on a spring break voyage to Grand Turk. Spend a day laying by the beach and wandering the city streets, before ending the trip with a beach club party on Bimini. 
  • 14 Day Cruise from Miami to Barcelona for Spring Break - This one’s for the truly adventurous. If you really want to make your spring break one for the books, how better to do it than a 14-day cruise across the Atlantic Ocean, from Miami to Barcelona. Along the way, you’ll stop at Gran Canaria and Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Casablanca in Morocco, and Valencia on the coast of Spain. Seeing one ocean is great, but there’s nothing like seeing the beauty of the Mediterranean Sea, and Seas surrounding the Caribbean's – on the same voyage, to really make your spring break epic.
