From the sea to the UK airways in Channel 5’s, The Cruise.

The Cruise on Channel 5

Lights. Camera. Anchors up — because we’re making our TV debut on Channel 5 this Sunday, starring in The Cruise; a brand new 20-episode series narrated by the enigmatic Sheridan Smith. Produced by Title Role Productions, the first episode premieres in the UK at 9 p.m. this Sunday, June 19th. And you really can’t miss it.

Filmed across both our Scarlet Lady and Valiant throughout the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, The Cruise takes audiences behind the velvet rope for a glimpse into the lives of our incredible Crew and Sailors (like you) as they sail across the open ocean on our adults-only voyages.

Stopping at some of the world’s most dazzling coastal cities and islands like Bimini, Ibiza, Marseilles, and Cannes; the series gives you a peek into the inner workings of our ships and what it takes to create our amazing onboard experience. Tasked with “making ship happen,” our Crew navigates the world of quirky Sailor requests, last-minute weather challenges, and unexpected surprises for milestone celebrations.

From Captain Giovanni, a seasoned Italian seafarer with decades of experience, to Selma, one of the brand’s RockStar Agents whose role includes making Sailors feel like Richard Branson, The Cruise shines a light on the people who make our voyages so special. Because at the end of the day, it’s about creating unmatched experiences you can’t find anywhere else. And we want to show you how that happens.

So if you’re in the UK, head to Channel 5 at 9 pm this Sunday, June 19th, to watch The Cruise documentary series featuring us, Virgin Voyages. And if you’re not in the UK, or if you have plans (we get it), you can stream it anytime on My5.

We’re ready for our close up.
