Virgin Voyages announced its third annual Eat and Drink Festival will take place across its fleet this July.

As part of the festival, Richard Branson’s newest travel brand is introducing the first-ever Asian Night Market at Sea.

Along with Michelin-starred chef Matt Lambert, the company is unveiling a brand-new six-course menu at the Test Kitchen.

Virgin Voyages is also bringing back experiences like Seven Seas Sippers, a cocktail treasure hunt across seven of its ships’ bars.

"This year's Eat and Drink Festival is a celebration of epic innovation, creativity and passion for exceptional gastronomic experiences that characterize our brand," said Charles Steadman, director of food and beverage experiences and strategic partnerships at Virgin Voyages. "We are proud to showcase the finest flavors, the creations of some of the most talented chefs and bar personalities, and the most immersive F and B experiences for our sailors."

Virgin Voyages has curated a 2024 line-up of more than 20 special activities, including wine pairings, hidden speakeasy pop-ups, spirited dinner series, culinary demos and dedicated food and drink events aboard each ship.

“In the midst of an incredible, record-breaking wave season, we’re looking forward to sharing these unique experiences once again with our sailors,” said John Diorio, vice-president of North American sales at Virgin Voyages. “We’ve heard from both sailors and first mates (travel advisors) that these on-board events are what keep people coming back time and time again.”

Those who book now will receive a bar tab of up to a $200 that can be spent on specialty drinks, Seven Seas Sippers cocktails and Virgin Voyages’ Shake for Champagne feature, allowing Moët and Chandon to be delivered anywhere on-board with the shake of a phone.
