Say hello to Virgin Voyages, Richard Branson’s newest edition to the Virgin travel empire!

The adult-only ship, which will feature a futuristic lounge, laboratory themed restaurant and a rooftop terrace claiming to have the largest daybed at sea, has reportedly been designed to attract first-time cruisers according to CNBC.
Master Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri will, the company promises, create a “new kind of sea vacation…redefining what guests expect from a cruise.”
