Is It a Good Deal?

Cruises can be a bit tricky to book with points (especially if you like maximizing their value), so it’s awesome to see these Virgin Voyages cruises offer excellent redemption value.

Here’s what you could expect to pay for these same cruises in a Limited View Sea Terrace room:

  • The Irresistible Med: $3,760
  • Greek Island Glow: $4,190
  • French Daze & Ibiza Nights: $4,020
  • Adriatic Sea & Greek Gems: $4,238

That means you’ll be getting 4.7 to 5.3 cents per point in value, more than triple what Virgin Points are usually worth!

Hot Tip: Save even more with a new 30% transfer bonus from American Express to Virgin Atlantic!

How To Get Virgin Red Points

Virgin Red points are easy to earn since you can link your Virgin Red account directly to your Virgin Atlantic account. While these 2 programs are technically different, you can still transfer points between them at a 1:1 ratio.

Best of all, Virgin Points are easy to earn because they transfer from all of the major transferrable points programs.

Final Thoughts

You can now book select Virgin Voyages 7-night Mediterranean cruises for only 80,000 Virgin Red points. The cruises are for 2 people on 1 of 4 itineraries that depart from Barcelona or Athens. You’ll need to book soon to take advantage of this deal as there are a limited number of cabins available.

Hello, I am going to book a cruise on Virgin Voyages, and the total cost is $2802. Do you happen to know how many points I need to transfer into my Virgin Red account? I already have a Virgin Atlantic account linked to my Red account. I just need to know how many points to transfer. I’m having such a hard time getting in touch with anyone that knows the answer.

Hi Jodi,
You can only book select Virgin Voyages cruises using Virgin Red points so if your cruise isn’t one of the ones specially available (like those mentioned in this post) you won’t be able to use points to pay for it.

80000 points

I would like to get the dates the cruises can be booked with points. Particularly interested in the trips leaving from Barcelona. I have points in Virgin Atlantic account

Hi Terence,
You can see which cruises can be booked with points during this promo here:

Tina Kupcova

February 16, 2023

Katie Seemann, how do you know that there is gonna be a transfer bonus?

Katie Seemann

February 16, 2023

Hi Tina, Citi sent out an email to some cardholders announcing a 30% transfer bonus to Virgin Atlantic starting on February 19, 2023.


February 15, 2023

Thanks, Katie. You gave a lot of info here. I’m waiting until 2/19 for the citi 30% transfer bonus to hit. I may miss it all, but that’s how the game is played.

Katie Seemann

February 15, 2023

Thanks for the kind words. This will be a killer deal with the 30% transfer bonus. I hope you get it. Good luck!

Believe it or not, I was able to book Valiant Lady’s 15-night transatlantic cruise on 04/22 from Miami to Barcelona with the same access code(100k). They even confirmed it is a valid redemption when I called in disbelief. That’s a heck of a deal! YMMV, however, it’s worth a try if you are planning on using 100k point option. Just enter the key code on the payment page to see if the total amount changes to $0.


February 18, 2023

Sam, how long did it take to get the email with your Access key in it?


March 21, 2023

Mind emailing me that access code ?


February 21, 2023

are they going to offer this to UK passengers – does anyone know please?

Katie Seemann

February 28, 2023

Hi Lisa,
This is the 2nd one we’ve seen in the last 6-ish months so I wouldn’t be surprised to see another one this year.


March 28, 2023

Looks like there’s zero cruises offered now. Any ideas if they’ll be back?

Chris Hassan

March 30, 2023

These promotions have popped up twice over the past few months, so there is a chance another will be back this year.


June 30, 2023

Can anyone tell me if these cruises can be booked all year even if for more points? If so, how do you do it? I’m considering going ahead and transferring points into my Virgin account just in case it pops up again for sept/oct/nov dates bc it is currently only through 8/27.

Hi Penny,

Sadly, they can not. But the promotion is often offered a couple of times per year so keep an eye out for the next one.
