All things Food & Drink
QUESTION: Have you read the last two emails yet?
it's only a quick 5 minute read. I know that we're all busy in life but
I don't not want you to miss any of the information. I just want you to
be assured that you will be so well versed in every aspect of the event
that you won't have any question.
I have already done these cruises I know what everyone want to know.
Too much all at once will be information overload. We lose about 65% of what we learn by the next day.
I know you are Excited. I am too! Be assured you Will be the FIRST to know everything. Getting these Insider Info Emails you have the first chance to get all the Savings and Priority Booking of your Spot on the Behind the Mask Cruise.
Did You Know that you have the choice of over 20+ Specialty Dining with No Extra Cost to You.
The perfect mix of sophistication, nostalgia and cool — entering The Wake is an event in and of itself. And once you've made your way down the grand staircase, you'll enter a world that harks back to the old steakhouse, three-martini-lunch days of Madison Avenue ad men. But ya know, now with, thankfully, gender equality. And less cigar smoke.
Inspired by Escoffier’s Ma Cuisine, this laboratory-like eatery is part cooking school and part restaurant. It's educational, experiential and social. With classes and evolving tasting menus, this is for the curious, boundary-pushing taste buds on board.
So your best friend wants something light and healthy and you want to get real weird? This is that place. Boasting a bold interior, this restaurant offers creative surprises on some classic, comfort go-tos. Whether you're looking for something familiar (#basic can be good) or something spicy and out of left field, this place does all of that with a twist (breakfast, lunch, dinner, baby).
If you're into hands-on meat-grilling and soju drinking, our Korean BBQ is the perfect spot to do all that with maximum social engagement (IRL, but feel free to 'gram it if you want). It's a catalyst for great conversation since we all have that one friend who insists on being the meat-master. Go ahead and roast the master while they roast the meat. 🔥
Inspired by the capital city's red hot street food scene, sailors are treated to an immersive odyssey of Mexican cuisine. Personal, intimate, and educational, a master of ceremonies will guide you through a highly curated dining and drinking experience. Mezcal dinner pairings equipped with a history lesson? Yes pls.
Deeply rooted in Italian Culinary traditions, our trattoria serves regionally-inspired food punctuated by our fresh, handmade pasta. Start with a shared antipasti - and follow that with any of our pasta-centric favorites and worship the carb gods like a good vacation begs of you. Top if off with a traditional Italian aperitif to make your night complete...or help it get started.
Okay, frankly we'd be wild to build a ship and not have a restaurant with a sun-drenched lounging area so you can combine all the things you love in one place (eating and views, obviously) so yep — we did that. The Dock feels like an elegant cabana caught between the chill, seaside perfection of Ibiza and the rustic-chic resorts of Brazil.
Our whimsical ice cream shop harks back to that magical home town, summer nostalgia, just with a Virgin Voyages twist and some complimentary scoops. That includes six seasonal home (or ship) made, artisanal flavors like the vegan Green Machine or Gianduiotto Chocolate. All with a featured daily flavor announced from our nearby record shop DJ booth, guaranteed to be unlike anything you might remember seeing at your local home town shop.
It’s early. You’re still a bit blurry and coffee is the only thing you can focus on right now. Luckily Grounds Club isn’t far, exclusively pouring one of the most satisfying, and tasty brews we’ve ever had, from direct-trade pioneers, Intelligentsia Coffee. It’s like your favorite coffee shop with the best almond milk, double shot, latte you’ve ever had just with ocean views.
A selective beer drinker's go-to, the Draught Haus features eight seasonal on tap varieties plus a wide range of artisanal bottles. This part British pub, part modern craft brewery inspired taproom, provides plenty of chill eclectic places to sit back and sip, or just grab a growler for those ‘bring your brew with you’, kind of days. Chill, casual but discerning beer connoisseur approved.
Our curated champagne lounge, Sip, was designed to satisfy many needs. Craving a posh early breakfast, high tea in the afternoon or caviar and an effervescent nightcap in the evening? Whatever the time, you can be sure bubbly will be on the menu all day at this glamorous lounge for Sailors in need of a sparkly refresher.
An effortlessly elegant, yet cozy counterpart to the view focused scene outside, The Dock House, delivers bright flavors that are anything but laid back while live acoustic sounds round out each taste. Select from choice cuts and fresh fish for the tableside open flame, or try bites like house made pita and dips. Detox mocktails, Mediterranean inspired cocktails or selections from the specially curated Rosé program promise to quench all thirst. Part elegant Ibiza cabana, part rustic-chic resort, always full-on delicious specialty dining.
Why not challenge our mixologists to make you something special? Forget the menu and simply tell the bartender the flavors you love, then watch as a unique masterpiece is created before your very eyes. Kick start the evening or round out the night with a cocktail that’s perfectly crafted for you.
Here, an opening gun salute signals the singing of an old sea shanty which can be heard far and wide. This salty sea dog, nautically-themed bar boasts lively music and animated processions with equally spirited bar keeps, ready to ignite a hearty chant, at a moment’s notice.
So, we don't do buffets. No shade to buffets -
they're honestly great, we just have a different approach for when
you're not in the mood to sit still. Start by grabbing something quick
from The Galley — our floating market of food-truck inspired,
international vendors — and get back to living your life. All our food
is sustainably packaged, so you'll never feel guilty on the go. You can
always order in with our room service — because if we believe firmly in
anything, it's the right to stay in.
Stay hydrated with filtered still and sparkling water, non-pressed juices, sodas, teas, or even drip coffee if you need a boost.
2am cravings? Designed around your schedule means that our delivery service won't stop, can't stop.
I hope this email has wet your appetite?
Wait to you see what coming next. You will never Expect it!
