Sydney, Bali, Singapore & More

15-NIGHT SAILING FROM SYDNEY TO SINGAPORE

Secluded sun rays await on Bali’s beguiling beachy neighbor island

This 15-night sojourn starts in Sydney followed by two self-care sea days on the way to Airlie Beach and Cairns. Then spend three sea days on your way to Australia’s only tropical city, Darwin, two more self-care sea days to the island of the Gods: Benoa, Bali followed the next day by Bali’s idyllic neighbor, Lombok, before spending two more recovery days at sea on your way to Singapore.

The Virgin Voyages Experience

From captivating coasts to laid-back island vibes, the exclusively adult cruise vacation of your dreams is here.

Hassle-free embarkation

Pre-upload your travel docs to the Virgin Voyages app, get Ready to Sail before leaving home, and make boarding a (sea)breeze in just a few minutes.

Repositioning cruise

More time to sea the world. More time to enjoy aboard. More memories to make. Explore diverse countries in 15 days on a one-of-a-kind, one-way voyage.

Late stays and overnights

Keeping it local

We’ve teamed up with locals in each of our ports to reveal sides of places you’ve yet to explore — from the people who know the destinations best.

The places you'll go

Gaze at the iconic Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, walk the historic Rocks district, or hit the trendy Bondi Beach.

Airlie Beach (Queensland)

A tiny, palm-dotted, walkable town and a magnet for backpackers, divers, and sunseekers — Airlie Beach is a vibrant, hostels-cafés-and-beachwear-shops-filled gateway.

Drawn by eucalyptus trees, a lush rainforest, and the Great Dividing Range mountains, Cairns is definitely an Australian hotspot.

Swaying palm trees and scorched red soil, water attractions and crocodile interactions, indigenous art and modern museums.

Benoa, Bali

Set on the Balinese southeastern coast, Benoa can be as intense or serene as you like. Whether you want to unleash your inner explorer or explore your inner self.

With all the instagrammable vistas of nearby Bali, Lombok is equally breathtaking with a fraction of the crowds.

A tiny but mighty island-state, Singapore's food scene goes from hawkers to Michelin, the experience involves temples and the world's largest gin collection.

We have even more in our curated catalog.

An ocean of opportunities calling your name.

There’s nothing more liberating than having the freedom of charting your own course. No pre-assigned seating, no fixed schedules, no limited options, no nonsense — just a shipload of opportunities to rejuvenate your body and transform your soul.

We’re making waves from the Caribbean to the Med, the Adriatic to the Red, and everywhere in between across 4 continents. Join us on an unparalleled journey of relaxation and indulgence, and discover the things — and the people — that make each destination so special.

Top things to do in bali, visit a local spa.

Bali is famous for its warm hospitality and services that center around relaxation, inner peace, and comfort. Local spas in Bali embody the island’s culture of wellness with traditional healing practices and serene surroundings. Indulge the senses with a Balinese full body massage, provided with age-old techniques meant to stimulate the flow of “qi”, or energy.

Take a Balinese Cooking Class

Balinese cuisine is defined by fresh ingredients, vibrantly diverse spices, tropical fruits, and traditional variations of rice as a staple with each meal. Take a cooking class to learn how the Balinese cook with flavor and health in mind, utilizing techniques that have existed for millennia. There are many popular vegetarian dishes in Bali, as well as fantastic pork, duck, and seafood dishes that are native to the island and its culture.

Go on a Glass-Bottomed Boat Ride

The biodiverse waters off the shores of Bali are full of incredible species of sea creatures and a glass-bottomed boat ride is one of the best ways to see them. Look out for protected and endangered sea turtles, reef life, and a variety of colorful butterfly fish, clownfish, and angelfish from the clear bottom of a boat as you travel with a guided tour. You could also see a number of other local species. Keep a lookout for sea eagles, and try to spot the brightly-colored beaks of Balinese hornbills as you sail along the shore.

What should I eat in Bali?

Food in Bali is diverse, plentiful, whether you opt for one of the island’s high-class restaurants or fresh street food. Try the many variations of rice and meat wrapped in palm leaves, and a traditional babi guling (suckling pig) before heading back to your ship. Vegetarians will love the fresh Indonesian salad known as gado gado, made with tempeh, bean sprouts, and a peanut sauce.

What's the culture and history of Bali?

As part of a larger Indonesian cultural tradition, the people of Bali share many customs with other islands in the region. They also pride themselves on their own cultural niche; unlike the rest of Indonesia, Bali is a Hindu island, practicing Agama Hindu Dharma. The Balinese have a close relationship with nature and believe that all-natural elements have a symbiotic spiritual and human connection. 

Bali has a deep history of imperial, colonial, and independent rule that spans back to prehistoric populations on the island. Bali was ruled for many years by the Javanese Majapahit Empire, and in more recent times, colonized by the Dutch. Indonesia became independent in the middle of the 20th century and Bali is now one of its most famous vacation spots.

Where can I go shopping in Bali?

As an island that’s lured artistic and creative types for decades, Bali offers plenty of shopping opportunities. Shop at the Mertha Segara Samuh Art Market for hand-made souvenirs with bright colored tapestries and Hindu-inspired iconography available at practically any of the market’s stalls. Visit the Bali Collection complex for a more upscale experience, complete with dining and entertainment options to accompany you as you shop. Handmade jewelry, leather purses, natural products, beachwear, sarongs, batiks, and paintings are all great souvenirs of the island.

How can I get around Bali?

The easiest and most convenient way to get around the island on your Bali cruise is by private car or a metered taxi known as a “Bluebird”. Central tourist areas of Benoa such as Nusa Dua are walkable, but in the humidity of the tropics, you may find car transport more comfortable and convenient. If you’re in a group, you can ride with a private minivan (known as Bemo) service, or book larger shuttles and buses to accommodate more people.

What are the local currency and tipping customs?

The local currency in Bali is the Indonesian rupiah, and ATMs are abundant around both the main city center and surrounding beaches. Try to pay with cash when you can, and be careful when using a credit card at smaller stores, as they may not accept them. Tipping is not customary in Benoa, however, tour guides and restaurant workers are always grateful for a polite gratuity.

Volcano erupts in Indonesia, alert level raised to highest: ‘Ejection of rocks, hot cloud discharges’

A tsunami alert has been issued after a volcano erupted several times in Indonesia, with more than 11,000 people forced to evacuate.

A tsunami alert has been issued for one of Australia’s closest neighbours, where a major Indonesian volcano had erupted several times in 24 hours.

Mount Ruang, a stratovolcano in Indonesia’s remote reaches, has unleashed a fury of eruptions, prompting authorities to issue a tsunami alert and evacuate over 11,000 residents to flee their homes.

Some photos released by authorities show apocalyptic scenes as ash clouds intertwine with lightning.

The volcano’s relentless activity, with five major eruptions in 24 hours, has sparked widespread concern and necessitated swift action from Indonesia’s Center for Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation.

With ash clouds billowing thousands of metres into the sky, the repercussions of Mount Ruang’s eruptions are felt far and wide, despite its distance of 1640 kilometres from the bustling tourist hub of Bali.

The initial eruption on Tuesday night, followed by four subsequent eruptions throughout Wednesday, has thrust the North Sulawesi Province region into a state of heightened alert.

The volcano’s relentless activity has sparked widespread concern and necessitated swift action from Indonesia’s Center for Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation. Picture: Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation / AFP

“In light of the escalating volcanic activity observed visually and instrumentally, Mount Ruang’s alert level has been elevated from Level 3 to Level 4,” Hendra Gunawan, the director of Indonesia’s volcanology agency warned on Wednesday night.

The escalation prompted authorities to expand the exclusion zone around the crater from four to six kilometres, a precautionary measure aimed at safeguarding residents from potential harm.

Antara, the state news agency, reported the evacuation of over 800 individuals from two villages on Ruang Island to the safer confines of Tagulandang Island, situated more than a hundred kilometres north of the provincial capital, Manado.

The eruptions have propelled ash columns up to two and a half kilometres high and have intensified following a series of earthquakes in recent weeks. Picture: Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG) / AFP

“Residents of Tagulandang must evacuate beyond the six-kilometer radius by Wednesday evening,” Gunawan said.

“Be on alert for the potential ejection of rocks, hot cloud discharges and tsunami caused by the collapse of the volcano’s body into the sea.”

The eruptions have propelled ash columns up to two and a half kilometres high and have intensified following a series of earthquakes in recent weeks, as noted by Muhammad Wafid, the head of the geological agency. The recent increase in volcanic activity highlights Indonesia’s ongoing risk of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

The archipelago nation is located in the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” a region stretching from Japan through Southeast Asia and across the Pacific basin, known for its frequent geological disturbances.

It’s the idyllic string of islands that’s drawing millions of tourists each and every year. But a sinister trend is pushing the region to “breaking point”.

Tourists have been blamed for destroying an iconic attraction in Hawaii with the site now being demolished as a result of trespassing.

The Gulf, including Dubai, has seen its worst rain for 75 years with 150 per cent of the annual rain falling in a day leading to at least 20 deaths.

Failed SA Senate candidate Raina Cruise found guilty of assaulting police officer outside Adelaide pub

An anti-vaccine protester and failed South Australian Senate candidate has been found guilty of assaulting a police officer in 2021.

District Court Judge Jo-Anne Deuter found Raina Jane Cruise intentionally harmed a female police officer in the Adelaide CBD in 2021, in an attack that left the officer with clumps of hair pulled out and facial bruising.

Constable Anthea Beck and a colleague were tasked to investigate an altercation involving a group of people and security guards at the Exeter Hotel, on Rundle Street.

Cruise had earlier pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated assault against two security guards.

During the trial, Cruise had claimed her arrest was unlawful , but in her verdict Judge Deuter rejected that claim.

She said she was satisfied that Constable Beck tried to inform the accused of why she was being arrested, which was for failing to provide her identification.

"Her aggressive response meant that Beck immediately encountered a situation where she had to physically manage the accused's attack upon her."

Judge Deuter said even without sound, CCTV vision of the incident showed the aggression of Ms Cruise towards Constable Beck.

"In a time span of just two seconds, the accused moved aggressively towards Beck and swung her arm at her, knocking off her police hat," she said.

"Within six seconds she has grabbed Beck's hair and started to drag her to the ground."

Injuries to a police officer following an alleged assault.

Prosecutor Greg Dudzinski asked the court to revoke Cruise's bail due to her history of other violent offending, which included an earlier assault on a police officer.

Cruise's lawyer, Andrew Graham, said the prior offences were not "the most serious", and sought a three-month adjournment to get a psychological report for Cruise.

"Cruise has gone through more in her life than most people have, including having an infant child pass away at a very young age and her husband die of an accident," he said.

"It might very well be that the alcohol issues which have led to some of the matters on the antecedent record are explained against that background.

"It's my submission that this isn't a matter that necessarily would result in an immediate term of imprisonment."

Cruise ran in the 2022 federal election for the Informed Medical Options Party, campaigning for bodily autonomy, and was a regular at anti-vaccination rallies.

Her party received 2,248 votes.

Judge Deuter remanded Cruise on continuing bail to return to court at a date to be set.
