Present this fresh idea to the bachelorette planning party: Assemble the girls for a cruise weekend in the Bahamas. There are so many reasons to say yes to this plan: Ships sail from Miami year-round; the fare covers almost every expense, so there’s no surprise bill at the end; and, importantly, this cruise line is exclusively adults, so there are no kids running around to change the vibe. For a fabulous tropical getaway that includes award-winning culinary delights, spectacular immersive music shows, a luxurious spa and idyllic sea views into forever, Virgin Voyages is the right answer.


Kick off the party by roaming the ship to sample signature cocktails at a few of the 20-plus eateries on board. No reservation needed if you slide up to the restaurant bar. Shake things up with the mixologists at On the Rocks cocktail bar. Try The Entertainer – a concoction of passion fruit liqueur, vanilla vodka and a shot of Champagne – or everyone’s favorite, the espresso martini. The Manor nightclub is a two-story, three-bar space named after founder Richard Branson’s first recording studio. Its photogenic entrance is lined with glittering mirrors, the perfect backdrop for party pics before you get to the dance floor.


Some in your group may be alcohol-free and, in that case, they’ll find a plethora of mocktails and playful, non-drinking activities. Group fitness options on and off the ship include HIIT workouts, bungee classes, SUP yoga and guided hikes. If you’re taking the weekend off from workouts, kick back at Redemption Spa for a massage, facial or mani-pedi. A day pass gives you access to saunas, steam rooms, cold plunges, pools and even a mud scrub. Consider booking your appointments on a port day in the morning and then get off the ship in the afternoon to avoid crowds. For the ultimate memento of your girls’ weekend, a tattoo studio is on board each ship.


If your group of Sailors likes good food, you’ve got a lot to look forward to. Fare is fresh, made-to-order and served in sophisticated dining rooms that are a feast for the eyes. Razzle Dazzle restaurant is noted for its arresting décor featuring red and white zebra stripes. It’s the place for a boozy brunch of waffles and mimosas. Gunbae is the Korean BBQ restaurant and one of the best environments for a group dinner. Servers will help you play drinking games if your table chooses to participate. At Pink Agave (Mexican), order one of everything on the small and medium menu so your squad can sample all they have to offer. Late-night pizza after the evening activities is a popular choice. And 24-hour food delivery service is as easy as a tap on the app. You’ll quickly learn why they earned the Best Dining award at the Cruise CriticCruisers’ Choice Awards.


Getting dressed up for a night out is the perfect way to celebrate the bachelorette in your life. Scarlet Night and the PJ Party are popular favorites. Throughout the evening, the entire ship is transformed into an epic event, and you’re in the center of it all. Scarlet Night celebrates a fabled love story between a mysterious Goddess of the Sea and the Sailor who won her heart. Wear red or PJs and join the bar crawl where you can follow the Happening Cast around the ship and sample a variety of cocktails. You may also find pop-up circus performances, interactive games, karaoke and live music.


The private Beach Club at Bimini is your chance to embark on a wild Bahamian adventure. Swim with stingrays or dolphins in the wild. Try scuba diving near the offshore shipwreck that acts as a fish magnet. Rock out to DJ beats in a lagoon cabana. Taste fresh conch harvested from local waters. All dining on the island is included in your all-inclusive package. End your day with a pool party hosted by the Happening Cast.

Pro tip: get in the pool a minute prior to start time to watch the party from your float.
